CODAR is an all-volunteer animal rescue organization based in Central New Jersey. Our mission is to rescue dogs and puppies from high kill shelters and place them in our foster care network until a permanent home is found. We rely on donations from the general public in order to operate. Our concentration on awareness is very important as we realize it is key in preventing millions of pets from being euthanized each year. CODAR was instrumental in aiding area residents with pet assistance due to the devastation of Hurricane Sandy in October of 2012. We provided foster care for residents who required temporary placement for their pets and offered our assistance in collecting and distributing supplies to residents and their companion animals who were affected by the storm.
