GSROC recognized as Best Way to Get a Pet in 2011

(Orange County, California) October 18, 2011 – German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County announced that it has been awarded 2011 “Best Way to Get a Pet” by OC Weekly Magazine, earning them recognition throughout Southern California as the premiere non-profit pet adoption agency.

OC Weekly chooses outstanding people, businesses, and organizations from Orange County in hundreds of categories to compile its prestigious “Best Of” list. Along with German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County to win the coveted award, other recipients included South Coast Plaza (Best Mall), Jered Weaver (Best Angels Player), Corey Perry (Best Ducks Player), Old Towne Orange Historic District (Best Residential Neighborhood), Avalon (Best Place To Get Away), and Crescent Bay (Best Beach in OC).

“We feel proud and grateful to have been chosen for this honor,” says Maria Dales, the organization’s founder and director. “Our volunteers work tirelessly on behalf of the many dogs depending on us, while upholding the highest standards of compassion and professionalism.  You can’t instill this level of dedication in someone—it has to come from the heart.  Individually and collectively, our volunteers are of the finest caliber, so it is truly rewarding to see their commitment acknowledged.”

Many other high-profile winners put German Shepherd Rescue in great company as it continues to reach out to dogs and fellow dog lovers alike. “If you are looking to adopt a canine family member and don’t know where to begin, visit our website at and get started on the path to finding a wonderful new companion,” says Maria.
