One Saturday we stopped at the pet store to buy cat food for our four cats. When we went in we saw a women (Evelyn) holding a puppy and two were in a crate (Zorra and Zorro)…we started talking to Evelyn and we showed interest in a small puppy to add to our family. Within 2 seconds of my fiance (Henry) holding Zorro and him licking Henrys face we knew we found our puppy! We can’t tell enough people about Castle of Dreams and we can’t thank you all enough about how much joy and love he brings to our family! I can say he’s a momma’s boy! Thank you again!!!!!


After the recent loss of my dog Bo, I didn’t think I was ready to foster yet adopt another so soon. After an email from Pam saying she needed homes for dogs being rescued from a horrible puppymill, I decided to open my heart and home. Previously known only as # 57, she quickly learned how loving a human touch could be. I never expected to feel so bonded with another dog so soon. After a few days of fostering Sophie, I could not imagine her being adopted by anyone else. She is now a permanent member of our family!

Rigby and Charo

Fell in love with “Teeny and Tiny” (now Rigby and Charo) Needed these smaller dogs to accept our 2 adult cats into their pack. With love, time and patience we are becoming a real family. The foster home of Pamela was a great start! Thank you again for making our dreams possible!


My family and I adopted Fiona on St. Patrick’s Day of this year. She was called “Black Beauty” and was only 10 weeks old. I saw her picture on Petfinder and filled out an application. After meeting her my family and I fell in love. We cannot imagine our house without her. She has an amazing personality, and makes us laugh every day. She loves going to the dog park to hangout with her dog friends. She also enjoys napping, reading the paper, and long walks around the park. She is a happy, adorable puppy who is loved by all that meet her!


We adopted Oliver (fka-Apache) when he was just 8 weeks old, he is now 4 months old. He has brought so much love and joy into our family that we cannot imagine our lives without him. He is so sweet and loving, he loves kids, other dogs, and wants (and expects) everyone we meet to stop and say hello. His foster mom was so sweet and supportive I know I can go to her, even now, if I have any questions or concerns. Thank you CODAR for bringing Ollie into our lives, he is best friend anyone could ask for!


I adopted Beca last year a beautiful brown and white Chihuahua from Nancy Castle of Dreams. It was after I lost my 14 year old Hope , what I can say is she is a gift to me and my family and Nancy was the gift giver. Beca was abused and now because of gifted people like Nancy she is loved in her forever home. THANK YOU NANCY.


Adopted her last Sunday and she happy getting spoiled. Thanks to Kelly for saving a great dog and entrusting to raise her. She listens to commands even tell her time for bed she goes her bed and sleeps straight through the night. Thank you again

Coco Rochelle

I had lost my “best friend” of 13 years last summer. After 10 months of grieving, I knew it was time to look for a new best friend. I assumed I would do the “puppy thing” again, but decided to check out Petfinders. CODAR had just posted Rochelle”s picture, and I knew her face was telling me to come get het her. Coco (renamed from Rochelle) has only been with me 3 weeks and we are already best pals. She is adapting so well to life in NJ with me (she’s from Tenn). She is so much fun and sleeps with me under the covers. Coco is 8 yrs old but full of life. I am sure I will have much more to write in years to come.


We saw Trubble on Petfinder and contacted Evelyn about coming to see him in January 2013. We had lost our beloved Peke Tony in June of 2012 and were ready to get our cat Tess a new brother. Tess and Tony had a special relationship and she was lonely without him in our new home. So off to New Jersey we went. It was love at first sight for us. Tess loves having a little brother to get into trouble, so he is named appropriately. He is great with other dogs and he loves unconditionally. We would like to take the time to thank you for rescueing him and making this possible. You are a wonderful organization and everyone should adopt a pet. Rose & Jim
