If you're looking to get a new pet, why not adopt a dog rescued from a high-kill shelter or abandoned by its owner? The German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County (GSROC), a nonprofit organization serving our area as well as greater LA, is dedicated to "rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing purebred German shepherd dogs" in need. Along with adoptable dogs' sizes and approximate ages, the GSROC website includes multiple photos and gives you the truth about the animal's demeanor and needs. You can read up on a dog's known history, how it was rescued, if it can be around cats and children, if it requires special medical attention, etc.— all details absent from most rescue and shelter websites. The organization screens potential adoptive families, ensuring the dogs are going to good homes and that you are ending up with a dog that fits your lifestyle—a perfect match for both sides. All dogs from the GSROC are spayed or neutered, current on their vaccinations, and de-wormed. The minimum adoption donation is $350, plus $25 for microchip for dogs older than 1, or $450, plus $25 for microchip for dogs 1 year old and younger. The donation is tax-deductible and helps further the group's mission.
