Crazy K-9 Auction with a Twist to Benefit CODAR

Castle of Dreams Animal Rescue

Castle of Dreams Animal Rescue is hosting an online silent auction to help defray some of the veterinary costs we have recently accumulated. As you can imagine, not being able to hold in person fundraisers has really taken a toll on our organization.

Oh, we almost forgot the twist!

One of the lucky prizes that you will be bidding on contains a hidden Crazy K-9 card. If you find this coveted card, you will have a chance to participate in a Twisted Hound game where you select a number from 1 to 3 and the number you pick will be attached to a prize. You can win a really good prize or a dud (max value of prize is $250).

So try and win as many baskets as you can! The proceeds raised from our silent auction directly benefit the Rescued dogs of Castle of Dreams Animal Rescue! Thank you in advance for your support!
Please help us by participating and sharing our event.

ALZO’S COMMUNITY OUTREACH

Alzo is a major sponsor and benefactor of the Castle of Dreams Animal Rescue, a 501C (3) all volunteer animal rescue organization based in Central NJ. It’s mission is centered on the rescue and rehabilitation of dogs and puppies from high kill shelters and place them in foster care until a permanent home is found. CODAR relies on donations from the general public in order to operate and corporate sponsorships are welcomed.

In addition to its mission to help prevent euthanizing  millions of pets each year, Castle of Dreams Animal Rescue offers programs on pet care and pet alteration as well as serving as speakers at school and community meetings. It has an active junior volunteer program that provides community service hours for ages 10 and above and assists families with temporary foster care,  pet friendly housing and donations of food and supplies. Training and rehabilitation with rescue dogs and families wishing to surrender their pets for issues is also available.

A grand opening for the new Castle of Dreams Animal Rescue facility is scheduled for summer 2020. We want to thank all those who have joined with Alzo to help contribute to the worthy cause.
