German Shepherd dogs are legendary for their intelligence, beauty and loyalty. German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County is a non-profit organization that rescues and re-homes purebred German Shepherds that have lost their homes due to unfortunate circumstances. Last year, they found loving homes for over 400 purebred dogs. Visit their website to donate, adopt, volunteer or surrender a dog. Adoption events are held every weekend at area pet retailers, see their website for locations.
