I have had multiple positive experiences with the GSROC. I first found them online when I found a German Shepherd collapsed on the side of the road. I thought it was almost dead, and took it to the local Animal Shelter for euthanasia. However, I found out that the reason the dog was in such bad condition was not from a fatal diagnosis, but rather from a skin infection which impacted his ears - and his balance. The dog looked and smelled like death. I cannot tell you how bad a situation this dog was in. Once I found out that the dog could be saved, I started to contact rescue groups... and the ONLY ONE to step forward and agree to help was the German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County! I brought them the dog from the shelter, and to my amazement - they saw to his care and healing. The "before" and "after" pictures are shocking. I named him "Denver" and he was adopted to a loving forever home. This rescue doesn't just take easy to adopt, cute puppies - but takes sick and injured dogs like Denver too. After that, I decided to be a volunteer for life! I have done home visits and transports, I have collected items for donation for yard sales to raise funds, contacted businesses for donations, in addition to fostering special needs dogs. This group is amazing!!
