WHO WE ARE
German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County (GSROC) is a non-profit 501c(3) charity organization dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing purebred German Shepherd Dogs that have no where else to turn. We are an all volunteer organization with no paid staff. We are funded entirely by private donations and receive no government support. Dogs for adoption are housed in foster home situations and in private boarding facilities. Currently, we do not own our own kennel facility, but our dream is to have one some day so that we can eliminate the tremendous expense associated with boarding the dogs while they wait for their forever families.
Approximately 50% of the dogs that we rescue come to us directly from owners who are no longer able to care for them for one reason or another. The number one reason that we receive dogs is “Moving”, with the number two reason of “No time for” is a close second. Dogs also come to us when owners become ill or hospitalized, when owners pass away, when families lose their homes or lifestyles change. The other 50% of the dogs in our care are plucked from public animal shelters throughout Southern California when no owner comes to claim them or when they are no longer wanted. We race to save as many of these dogs into our care as we can, however limited space and resources constantly make our task difficult.
HOW YOU CAN HELP
Of course, we cannot continue our life-saving work without the help of devoted animal lovers and concerned individuals like you. There are many ways that you can help us create more happy endings for beautiful, loving shepherds. If you are not in a position to adopt a dog at this time, please consider volunteering. We can always use your help with walking the dogs, promoting them at adoption events, transporting them to vet appointments, conducting home visits, or raising precious funds for sick and injured dogs that arrive on our doorstep. If you are interested in making a secure, tax deductible donation, please click below. No gift is too small and all gifts will go directly to benefit our homeless dogs. And of course, please make adoption your first choice when looking for a new family member.
WHAT WE DO
Through a careful screening process, we place loving dogs into forever homes with compassionate individuals and families. We begin with an Application, which tells us more about an individual’s experience level, lifestyle, other pets, preferences, etc. so we can recommend dogs that best fit the home. Prospective adopters are encouraged to meet various dogs and to bring all family members and existing pets to meet the dogs they are interested in. Once “the” dog has been selected, we perform a routine Home Visit to ensure the dog will be safe from any hazards, poisons, or dangerous situations. At this time, we advise the adopter if there are any repairs or corrections that need to be made prior to the dog coming home. Adopters pledge to love and care for the adopted dog throughout its entire lifetime. In the event an adopter is no longer able to care for a dog, we insist it come back into our rescue safety net for re-homing. Due to financial and logistical limitations, we do not place dogs outside of the Southern California area.
Our minimum Adoption Donation is $350 plus $25.00 for microchip for dogs over 1 year, and $450 plus $25.00 for microchip for dogs one year old and younger. This donation (tax deductible as allowed by law) helps to offset the costs we have incurred for the dog’s care and housing during his or her stay with our group. All dogs adopted through GSROC are spayed or neutered, current on their vaccinations and de-wormed. Because the minimum Adoption Donation rarely covers the costs associated with each dog, we ask that adopters who are in a position to give additional funds do so at their discretion. We also ask our adopters to help us spread the word about the important work that we do.
WHY WE DO IT
Despite recent spay/neuter efforts, pet overpopulation continues to cost 6-8 million companion dogs and cats their lives every year. Of this figure, more than 25% are purebred animals. We believe that by focusing on the niche that we know best—German Shepherd Dogs—and by placing the dogs in suitable, lifelong homes, we can significantly reduce the number of animal lives that are lost in our immediate area. We hope to build on the success that we achieve and one day expand our safety net to include shepherds in other areas as well. With your generous support, we can continue this life-saving mission one deserving dog at a time.
