Dog Adoption Certification Program

My passion:

Keeping More Dogs In Their Forever Homes

“Since 2001 I have owned and worked with dogs and volunteered in dog rescue, and over and over again I see families struggle with the dog in their home. I am asked regularly to help people because they are overwhelmed and living with a dog that they don’t know how to handle. Sometimes it is the wrong breed or age of dog, and sometimes people just aren’t ready for the changes to their lives when they adopt a dog. I just kept thinking that there has to be a better way to make the adoption experience better for both people and dogs! There has to be a way to end the heartbreak for families needing to re-home their dog and reduce the number of dogs going into rescue. With all of my knowledge of dogs and adoption and the rescue world, I’ve developed Happy Hearts!” – Cheryl Caswell, Founder

“Ensuring that families are set up for success when purchasing or adopting a dog is one of the most crucial elements to keeping dogs from entering or returning to the shelter system.  I highly recommend using Cheryl from Happy Hearts Dog Adoption Services to help find your next dog companion.
