About Our Rescue Group:

German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County is a non-profit 501(c)3 organization that rescues, rehabilitates, and rehomes purebred German Shepherd Dogs from all over Southern California. Approximately 50% of our dogs come directly from owners who can no longer keep them for one reason or another. The other 50% of our dogs come from high-kill shelters where they have been forgotten or relinquished by their former owners.

Come Meet our Pets:

At any given time, we have more than 75 purebred shepherds in our care. Ages range from the youngest puppies to distinguished senior dogs, with the most common ages being 2-3 years old. We typically have all colors of shepherds to choose from, from the traditional black and tan, to pure black shepherds and bi-colors, to all- white purebred shepherds. Volunteers work hard to match prospective adopters with the dogs that best meet their lifestyles, experience levels, and needs.

Please check out our web site at www.gsroc.org for the location of adoption events and fundraisers that we will be attending throughout Orange, Los Angeles, Riverside, and San Diego counties.

Our Adoption Process:

The process begins when you complete an online or in-person Adoption Application. The information that you provide allows us to learn about your expectations and experience level so that we can help you choose the right canine companion for your family. Completing the Application does not obligate you to adopt a dog from us, nor does it ensure that your request will be approved. Please note that due to the logistical challenges and our limited resources, we do not adopt dogs outside of the Southern California area.

Once you submit your Application, an experienced Adoption Counselor will contact you to talk to you personally. From there, we will schedule a Home visit to help you to ensure that the environment is safe for a curious, intelligent, large-breed dog.

Because we are funded entirely by donations, at the time of your adoption, a tax-deductible donation (minimum $350 + $25.microchip fee) will be requested. These fees will go 100% to assist the dogs in need. There are no paid staff members.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
