Last year, the German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County saved, rehabilitated, and re-homed nearly 400 German Shepherds that had nowhere else to turn. Thanks to the support of compassionate animal lovers like you. With your help, we will save even more precious lives this year. Please look into the faces of the beautiful dogs that are depending on us to help them live the lives they were always meant to have, and then make a tax deductible donation to help us with our ongoing work.
