The nonprofit Garden State German Shepherd Rescue (GSGSR) is a volunteer organization dedicated to helping German shepherds. It serves New Jersey and parts of New York. The GSGSR thrives on foster families, volunteers, and donations; one supporter of the organization is dentist Christopher Lillo, who serves patients in New Jersey’s Ocean and Monmouth counties.
Located in Milltown, New Jersey, the GSGSR rescues German shepherds that come from pounds and shelters in the state. Families foster the dogs, and the organization provides the dogs with medical care. It also offers a referral service for current German shepherd owners who can no longer care for their dogs, and it assists in placing the dogs with other families.
As vice president of Toms River, New Jersey’s Oak Ridge Dental Group since 1997, Dr. Christopher Lillo oversees staff and ensures that the dental group is compliant with Occupational Safety and Health Administration standards and Health Insurance Portability and Accountability regulations. In addition to his work with Garden State German Shepherd Rescue, Dr. Lillo donates to another animal foundation, the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.
