Labradors and Friends Dog Rescue

Labradors and Friends Dog Rescue Group, Inc. is 501c3 animal rescue group dedicated to rescuing labrador retrievers and labrador mixed breed dogs in Southern, Central and Northern California and placing them in loving homes. Founded in 2007, the all-volunteer group is comprised of experienced men and women who work passionately to save dogs from local shelters. Their volunteers are dedicated to changing the fate of labrador retrievers. Their volunteers include countless men and women who open their hearts and homes to our rescues in need. Without them, none of this would be possible.

German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County

German Shepherd Rescue of Orange County (GSROC) is a non-profit 501c(3) charity organization dedicated to rescuing, rehabilitating and re-homing purebred German Shepherd Dogs that have no where else to turn. They are an all volunteer organization with no paid staff. They are funded entirely by private donations and receive no government support. Dogs for adoption are housed in foster home situations and in private boarding facilities. Currently, they do not own their own kennel facility, but their dream is to have one some day so that they can eliminate the tremendous expense associated with boarding the dogs while they wait for their forever families.

We want our dogs to stay in one permanent home for the rest of their lives and do everything in our power to ensure that they do. Barks of Love has a diverse base of remote volunteers. We do not run out of a facility, but through our loving foster homes. Our mobile events and recruiting methods spread our ideology that anyone can take some part in animal rescue across Orange County, California, whether it being volunteering, fostering, or donating.
