GSROC is a volunteer-driven organization. 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.
Despite recent spay/neuter efforts, pet overpopulation continues to cost 6-8 million companion dogs and cats their lives every year. Of this figure, more than 25% are purebred animals. They believe that by focusing on the niche that we know best—German Shepherd Dogs—and by placing the dogs in suitable, lifelong homes, they can significantly reduce the number of animal lives that are lost in our immediate area.
Big Brothers Big Sisters of Orange County was founded more than 100 years ago and is the community’s largest donor- and volunteer-supported mentoring network, serving more than 3,300 children each year. The organization creates meaningful, monitored matches between adult volunteers (“Bigs”) and children (“Littles”).
L.E.A.D.ing Big is a board that supports the efforts of Big Brothers Big Sisters OC, helping to raise money to fund more matches. The board is comprised of a group of young, energetic OC professionals, committed to raising funds and awareness. L.E.A.D.ing Big is excited to be a part of 12 Bars of Charity and we are excited to raise funds to support the youth of OC. Join our team and help us make a difference!
The Pacific Marine Mammal Center rescues, rehabilitates and releases marine mammals and inspires ocean stewardship through research, education and collaboration.
An important part of marine mammal recovery is ongoing research. Research is being done to find the pathological conditions that affect the marine mammals of Southern California. Only through funding this research are they able to discover the cause-effect relationships that can help us to understand the best means to rehabilitate marine mammal patients.
The mission of Patriots and Paws is providing returning Veterans/active Military and their immediate families with home furnishings, and unite them with a rescued animal. Their veterans/active military can get help with housing in the forms of special loans and a special type of HUD housing, but with a roof over there head, many don’t have basic things like dishes, sheets, a couch, end table, etc.
That is where they fill the gap and help veterans, active military and their immediate families with furniture and small necessities needed. The animals also help provide companionship therapy for the Veterans and their families against post-traumatic stress.
