I went through a long adoption process, but was unable to visit the rescue. The worker who was emailing me asked questions about the household and my past pets. After I had answered all the question they asked, they told me that the cat I wanted was not up for adoption. It broke my heart because I poured in so much for work for this cat! I knew from the moment I saw her, she was a great cat who I can provide a home for. It is really a shame that I spend a week contacting the rescue to wind up empty handed. Nevertheless, I hope that cute kitten enjoys her new home.

DREAM Animal Rescue is amazing. Just by looking at their process, which includes a home check, you can tell they really care about the animals they rescue and will do everything they can to ensure the best possible furrever homes for them. For our baby, they found her with a shattered paw in a shelter and knew they had to help. They found a vet willing to fix the paw and then raised the substantial amount to pay for it. Now she is running around our house and bringing us such joy and happiness. We couldn't be more thankful to DREAM for saving her and bring her to us!

4 yrs ago I adopted a gorgeous female cat (14 mths old) from DREAM Animal Rescue. She is beautiful, healthy, and so much fun. And she keeps me healthy and happy! The DREAM Team is hard working, generous, and filled with unconditional love for their rescues. I know the founder's heart breaks when she sees these poor, helpless, homeless animals ... especially those in high kill shelters. I'm aware she has shed many tears for the fur babies she couldn't save. DREAM does all they possibly can to assure these sweet little animals are given the best of health care and go to a safe, loving furever homes. When DREAM saves these fur children, they receive medicine - if needed, necessary immunizations, and are spayed/neutered. I can't thank the people in this rescue group enough for all they do. It is often a thankless and extremely exhausting job. I highly recommend DREAM if you are looking for a healthy, beautiful fur child or want to donate to their mission to assist needy animals.

When I broke my foot in 2016 I needed something purposefull to do so I started volunteering at Dream Animal Rescue. It was so wonderful interacting with all the cats that I called it my therapy! Now along with 3 other Rescue cats we foster a very spunky and loving boy named Butterball and we couldn't be happier! Dream Animal Rescue not only rescues animals but people too!

I started fostering cats for this rescue a year ago and Jonnie's passion for helping animals is overwhelming and infectious. The entire Dream Team truly care about animals and are on a mission to save as many as possible. I have helped foster, network and adopt out about a dozen cats so far with many more to come. The experience is truly fulfilling, and the rescue team provides great support to its fosters. Can't say enough about what a wonderful experience this has been for me and my kids.

I came to know Dream reacue 3 years ago. I saw a sick kitten at the Downey shelter and she wasn't doing well. A few days past and the poor kitten wAs getting worse. I reached out to Dream Animal Rescue and asked for help. They agreed to get he kitten out if I would foster for them. They weren't concerned that she was sick or underweight. Dream sent her straight to the vet and then she came to me until she was adopted a few months later. Dream has helped so many dogs, cats, and kittens. It doesn't matter what breed, the health, or the age of he animal. If they have a commited foster they step up. In fact just today they helped save a kitten from SBC shelter that was in need of medical attention. Thank you Dream for all you do

DREAM animal rescue is an amazing group of volunteers.
The founder, works tirelessly to work full time and still make saving cats lives a priority. Cats and kittens are pulled from high kill shelters and also saved as strays from the street.
The cats are all spayed and neutered, get all shots, dewormed, combo tested and microchipped. All counting on donations.
It's the the most thorough, reputable cat rescue in the area. The cats are in wonderful foster homes and well taken care of.

DREAM is such an amazing rescue. I see the love and care they put into the rehabilitation and/or adoption of each animal and am always in awe of their work.

I adopted my cat Walter from dream. He's a big beautiful cat who just loves the world. He was/is a very healthy guy and was all up to date on his stuff when I got him. Dream is an amazing cat rescue that genuinely cares for all the cats that come through. They won't send a cat home with just anybody until they are sure it's the right fit. They don't want their cats ending back up in the pound. I use to foster for dream but had to temporarily stop for personal reasons but like I said they really do care for their cats. I'd get calls just to check on the cats, and they always supplied food, toys, litter or whatever they needed. I'd definitely recommend this rescue to anyone looking to adopt or foster cats. All super amazing people and cats!

I was blessed to work with DREAM Animal Rescue after i rescued a pregnant cat from a kill shelter in Nevada. I got in contact with the organization out of desperation to find homes for theses sweet cats. not only did we find them homes, but I began fostering, and during the year I volunteered there probably around 20 fosters came through my home.

The people who volunteer for this rescue are the most caring and compassionate. They never pass a tough case and they are always finding ways to make room for the next animal that needs help. Foster families are amazing, the owner is a wonderful woman who always puts the animals first. I know for a fact that the time that I spent with DREAM will always be a cherished memory because this rescue got it right. They are exactly what a rescue should be and I am both honored to have worked with them and saddened that I moved away. I have yet to find a group of people more dedicated.

I have been working, interacting, and donating to DREAM Rescue for a long time. I have worked with many rescue groups, and DREAM is by far, one of the BEST! They work hard to find the best homes for their rescue animals, and don't always adopt to the first people, if they aren't a good fit. They are completely transparent in the fundraising and communications. These are very good, ethical people, and it is very apparent that they love the animals they save. The happy endings always make my day!

D.R.E.A.M Animal Rescue is an amazing rescue. Being a volunteer is so much fun not only do you help keep the kitties comfortable at the adoption center. It's a rescue were you can interact with the cats and dogs. Also with potential adopters. And your helping save lives
