We adopted Missy, our shih tsu from Caring Hearts. She is great. She was given excellent care. Caring Hearts noticed she had an eye issue and took care of an operation that she needed. They are fantastic!

We adopted Lucas from Caring Hearts in 2016. What a fantastic organization. Lucas was rescued along with his pals in December 2015. They are known as the Holiday Angels and Lucas will be in attendance at the Holiday Angels Black & White reunion next month. What can I say about this organization??? This organization, along with Sabina Poinelli and the many volunteers continue to go above and beyond their call of duty. I recently viewed a video which includes the dogs rescued back in 2015. Lucas was in this video and I cannot tell you the sadness I felt looking at it. Knowing that my Lucas was in that video broke my heart. However, Caring Hearts to the Rescue!!!! Lucas would not be with us today if it weren't for the love, dedication, and the many, many countless hours that this organization gave to get these fur babies back to health. My heartfelt thanks goes out to each and every one of the volunteers for what they do each and every day. Please enjoy this photo of Lucas.

With appreciation,
Cindy Clemenza.

Me and my long time girlfriend, suddenly lost our dog after unnoticed complications by the vet, after a simple surgury. He died in my arms the day after at home. It completely destroyed the both of us, for a very long time. If it wasent for one another, idk how either of us would have gotten through it. A year or so later we came cross caring hearts, and a little long legged shitzu named "snoopy" he was the last of his 12 rescued brothers and sisters. Because no one wanted a shitzu with long legs. We explained the situation with sabina, and set up an appointment to come ser him. Almost instantly, it was the first time in a long time i actually saw my girlfriend truly smile again, the second she picked up "snoopy". Sabina, said we could take him for a trial . For which we did, but before we even made it home. We had already renamed him "Remington, aka Remy", and went to petsmart and bought him a bed, toys and everything. Its now been about 2 1/2 years, and are lives wouldnt be complete without Remy. He has turned into a perfect addition to our family. And a great lil brother to our late Charlie bear. Caring hearts, and Sabina couldnt have been more understanding. And they care for every rescue, as if they were one of their own. And make sure they only send rescues off to caring moms and dads. The work they do, is so amazing. We wouldnt have wanted to adobt from anyone else. They are all little angels on earth for the work they do.

Our family adopted Petey from Caring Hearts in 2015. What a fantastic organization! Caring Hearts was there if we needed anything and made the transition very smooth! Petey came to us in such wonderful condition although the poor guy has only one eye!

Petey is such a wonderful dog and has been such a blessing to our family and to our other aging dog as well. I look forward to adopting from Caring Hearts in the future.

We received our precious Benny (a shih tsu -sp?) from Caring Hearts 14 1/2 years ago and they were excellent in their description of Benny's previous life. He was five at the time and, unfortunately, we had to let him move on in January 2018, There is no doubt that we will get our next dog from Caring Hearts when we're ready. We are also long-time donors and encourage all to take part in keeping this wonderful rescue thriving.

I have adopted two dogs from Caring Hearts Rescue, so have witnessed first-hand the care they take in matching dogs and potential adoptees. Moreover, Caring Hearts readily takes on desperate cases--dogs with multiple health issues that require extensive and expensive assistance before they are ready for their new homes. I respect the love they share with animals that may be facing their last chance of happiness. And I am forever in their debt for my two adoptees, including my current Tapsi.

I have adopted two dogs from Caring Hearts Rescue. With my current adoption, the foster mother provided detailed information on Tapsi's temperament and behavior, which was extremely helpful in acclimating her (Tapsi, that is) to my home. She was also able to pass along Tapsi's entire medical history from her prior owner.

With both adoptions, Caring Hearts was careful to match me with dogs that would thrive in my home. Both adoptions have been complete successes from my perspective. I adored Miss Honey who, sadly, passed away two years ago and am in love with my current resident. Tapsi is also a favorite in our neighborhood and has quite a large fan base in Arundel-on-the-Bay!

First, we’d like to sincerely thank Caring Hearts Rescue and Missy’s foster mom, Sabina Poinelli, for rescuing Missy and providing so much support and advice while Missy and her hu-parents-to-be figured out our relationship. As is true for so many rescues, Missy had a few behavioral quirks that we needed help working through. The transition to a forever home would have been much more difficult without Sabina’s expert advice and support.

The First Weeks Are Like A Flower Blooming
They say it takes a few weeks to reveal a dog’s real personality. That’s certainly true for Missy. When we first met her, she was very restrained and maybe a bit insecure about her surroundings. She didn’t vocalize; she would often just sit and stare at my wife and I or join us on the sofa and quickly fall asleep – a perfect little lap dog. Not so much anymore. In the beginning, Missy was just trying to figure us and the relationship out. Now, Missy has blossomed into a very secure, playful, and active dog who is comfortable wandering through the yard, sniffing at the scents deer and other critters have left behind, or running through the house, playing hide and seek among the furniture, or snuggling up on a lap and taking a nap.

The Great Outdoors and Housebreaking
At first, the outdoors or any large open spaces seemed to intimidate Missy. She would freeze and want to go to a smaller, more confined space. Sabina suggested we use a small X-enclosure outside to give her a sense of intimacy and (literally) fence out the great outdoors. Using treats, we would bribe Missy out to her little pen where she (apparently) felt safe and would go potty. It took her about ten days before she pushed the gate open and decided to sniff around in the yard. Now she’ll come to me, bark once, and when I ask her what she wants, she runs to the laundry room and stares at the door -- telling me she wants to go out. Now Missy will regularly ask to go out to potty or just to sniff around and check out what’s happened in “her” yard.

Now Missy will regularly ask to go out to potty or just to sniff around and check out what’s happened in “her” yard.

Toys and Play
In her first week with us, we went to Pet Supplies Plus and bought Missy a variety of toys – some small, some medium, a few plush, and a couple of latex squeakers. Missy ignored them all, barely giving them a sniff before walking past them. We tried different toys, we tried tossing and rolling the toys in front of her; nothing piqued her interest. Then one day she ran into my office and barked at me. When I stood up to take her out, she ran to her toys, picked one up, and waited for me to follow. We’ve been playing chase, fetch, and tug-of-war two to four times a day ever since. Sometimes I catch her with one of her toys throwing it up in the air and trying to catch it!

My Home Care Companion
I’ve been recovering from major surgery since October and Missy has been better than any home care provider. I must sleep sitting up, so I sleep in the recliner at night. First thing in the morning, Missy runs downstairs to my recliner and gently puts a paw on my foot. Once she knows I’m awake, she runs to my shoes (the next step to going out), and when I have my shoes on, she then runs to the laundry room door. All through the day she “reminds” me that I need to move around – as I fix her meals, take her for walks – and she even joins in with my physical therapy. I don’t know if Missy’s therapy is doctor-approved, but I believe my shoulder has improved with all the toy tossing and tug-of-war we’ve been playing.

I could keep writing about how much joy Missy has brought into our lives – every day she does something that makes us break out laughing. We are so thankful to have found Missy – and we’re sure Missy is happy in her forever home. Thanks again, Sabina and Caring Hearts Rescue!

I first adopted from Caring Hearts Rescue 4 years ago (Zoe), and then again 3 years ago (Maury). The people who work with CHR are amazing; they are caring, hard working, kind and filled with love for dogs in need. They work tirelessly to help abandoned and rescued dogs, no matter what their condition or age. They even have a Safe Haven Sanctuary where unadoptable dogs can live out their life in comfort, safe from a scary world, and with love. They are truely a blessing for our four legged babies in need. God bless them.

Caring Hearts is top of my list of non-profits. Caring, dedicated, well-organized, good stewardship of resources. I especially appreciate their dedication to the welfare of senior dogs who are not easily adoptable. This is a major need for funding. And I gladly give every year.

Caring Hearts rescued my dear adopted shih tzu Lilly in absolutely dreadful shape and spent almost a year bringing her "back to life" -- and more than that, to a beautiful, happy companion who was a great blessing in my life. I cannot thank them enough.

Sabina Poinelli, who heads up this organization is the most fabulous, caring person I have ever met. Caring Hearts take such excellent care of their rescue dogs and make sure they have all the medical and other attention they need, fostering them for as long as necessary to nurse them back to health no matter what their condition when found. Because they rescue dogs that are often in terrible shape, they need generous donors to do their wonderful work. My precious Lilly is one of those dogs that required a large investment of time and money. I have been donating for years and believe they spend the donations very wisely. They truly deserve to be a top-rated nonprofit.

Over the past ten years we have adopted 3 fur babies from Caring Hearts Rescue. Sabina and the rest of the volunteers are just as good as it gets. They will take on even the most difficult cases who through no fault of their own have suffered un-speak able abuse and trauma. The love and patience that they share with these poor souls seems to be limitless. They also take in senior pets that have been just tossed aside, giving them love, medical care and a comfortable home for the rest of their lives. Our most recent bundle of love adopted through Caring Hearts Rescue is Ari. She was rescued from the Korean meat market along with several other dogs after enough money was raised to bring them to the US. Ari has filled our lives with an endless supply of love and kisses and we are so beyond thankful to have her with us. Our other CHR adoptee, Ava also loves having Ari with us as they have bonded and have great fun playing and hanging out together every day. Huge thank you to everyone at Caring Hearts Rescue!

It has been almost nine years since our first experience with Caring Hearts Rescue. We adopted our sweetest little Nina through Caring Hearts Rescue and primarily my experience then and has been with Sabina Poinelli . I was so impressed with the thoughtful and loving care that Sabina and everyone connected with Caring Hearts Rescue that I started to support them monthly and when ever there was a special need. We have since adopted two other dogs through the rescue. We next adopted our Ava that was found almost dead along the road in Easton MD in March. She was not expected to live as was only three pounds when found. She survived somehow but due to her young age of only 6 months and the abuse this poor baby had experienced she failed the aggression test. Little Ava could only leave the high kill shelter if she went directly to a rescue. We agreed to foster Ava and I will never forget that Sabina drove two hours there and back to save Ava. That was almost 6 years ago and Ava is now thriving and is best friends with our latest rescue Ari. Caring Hearts Rescue held fund raisers and were able to save Ari along with 4 other dogs from the Korean Meat Market. Ari is the most amazingly sweet and loving dog and we can't imagine what would have happened to her without Caring Hearts Rescue. They also rescue poor little old and sick seniors that no one else wants. The heart and dedication that I have seen is just unsurpassed ...they will go way above and beyond for these innocent dogs, there is no situation to dire or difficult based on what I have seen. They are all volunteers and just as good as it gets!

Caring Hearts Rescue is all about caring for the love of animals. Sabina was wonderful from the start trying to help us understand all about rescue and what it detailed. We have another small dog from a breeder but this time wanted to try to Rescue a dog in need. The process that Caring Hearts Rescue goes through to match the dogs to their forever homes is great. Sabina is very helpful from application to adoption. She let us foster our girl for several months to see how she would adapt to our home, family and our surroundings. She does over the phone training with you to help with problems that arise or the dog already has at the beginning. We have a long way to go with our adopted girl but I know if we needed help or advice they would respond to us. Its like Caring Hearts Rescue is a big family once you adopted from them. Great Rescue!!

Caring Hearts Rescue is an extraordinary rescue. I was matched with poodle-mix Derby 5-years ago, and Sabina at CHR allowed me to foster 2-weeks before adoption. Derby celebrated his 8th Birthday in July. He came with separation anxiety and resource guarding issues, and Sabina was always available to listen and offer recommendations. Derby has become a wonderful friend and companion. He loves socializing with other dogs and getting pampered by humans.

The people at Caring Hearts helped connect my wife and me to what has turned out to be a wonderful companion. Chester is 8 years old today, and has been part of our lives for more than half of his.

We didn't know when we brought him home that I'd soon be facing a series of medical issues, but he turned out to be the perfect therapy dog.

Caring Hearts continued to support both Chester and me after we brought him home. When I had to go to California for some surgery, he was welcomed into a Caring Hearts pack, and he had such a great time he almost didn't want to come home. But he did, and he stayed glued to my side until I was back up and around.

Since then, he is always ready to go for a walk, play fetch-the-ball, make his favorite toy squeak incessantly, or just snuggle up.

I recommend Caring Hearts Rescue to anyone who's looking for a companion dog. They'll help you find one that's right for you, and if yours is anything like the one they helped me find, you will truly feel the love.

We found Caring Hearts Rescue by googling for “cockapoos available for adoption.” One named Chester looked promising, and Caring Hearts arranged for us to visit him at the house where he was being fostered. It was love at first sight.
Chester definitely has a lot of poodle in him, but we say he’s mostly an “Affection Hound” because he’s happiest when he’s physically in touch with one of his humans.
Caring Hearts made sure we knew about his fear-aggression, the apparent product of an unhappy puppyhood, and they taught us how to deal with it.
When I had to go to a medical center in another state for some complicated surgery, Caring Hearts found us someone he could stay with, and now her house is one of his favorite places.
Caring Hearts is a first-class organization, staffed by people who love dogs and want to see them happy. I recommend it to anyone who’s looking for a furry companion to love.

I love CHR. They have a great manager and network of volunteers and supporters who rescue, rehab, and rehome adorable dogs. Many of the animals really need love and TLC.

This nonprofit ROCKS! So many people today just get rid of their dogs when the dogs start to have health problems or get old and they no longer want to care for a dog. And still many others turn over dogs saying they aren't good dogs without having done anything to train the dog! Dogs, just like kids, have to be trained. It's a tragedy when so many of these abandoned and surrendered dogs still have so much life in them and love to give. Caring Hearts Rescue takes these small breed pups, gets them healthy and/or trained and then works to place them with an owner who really believes that "till death do us part" should also apply to our pets too. And recently, they have also been rescuing many from breeders that raise them in horrible conditions for food! I have heard of some countries serving dog but darling little Shih Tzus, Maltese, and Westies? I could not believe it! I LOVE CHR!

CHR is so wonderful. They take in so many dogs with tough medical or behavioral issues and provide them with the best medical care and rehabilitate the toughest cases so that they can find new homes with loving owners who are also educated about best pet care practices. They even provide free training and advice about all kinds of things to new owners in their first 6 months to a year or so. My 3-legged dog was rescued by CHR and they took over a year to help find him the best strategy for him to walk again comfortably (it was finding the right medication in his case). I don't know how they do the work that they do with the animals they take in but I am grateful for these angels! And so is my pup!

What can I say about Caring Hearts. A year ago we adopted a dog we name Zoey. I know it is been said thousands of time before, but we did not rescue her. She is now so much a part of our family (we have an 8 year old Havaneese), we don't know what it was like without her in our lives. She brings us so much joy I am not much of a picture taker, so I don't have a photo to add.

Caring Hearts is an excellent organization that does wonderful work. They are very careful about who adopts their animals, including a home visit. This organization is run by caring individuals who give all they have and deserve to be named one of the great nonprofits.

I adopted my sweet Bentley from Caring Hearts Rescue almost two years ago. Sabine was great in helping me choose the right dog to best fit with our family dynamic. She allowed me to foster him before deciding to adopt to make sure the fit was perfect for us and he was. He's a cherub and I couldn't imagine our home without him in it.

Love can be found when you least expect it. It can be found driving down an old country road, just setting in a ditch, or when a furry friend needs a new home because either the former owners were abusive, or they no longer fit in the family plans.

My wife and I adopted Emerson when he was 14. Going into the adoption, we knew there were several major health issues the little guy was suffering from, but this did not deter us. On the contrary, it made us love him even more, and we were determined to give him a lifetime of love and care. We lost Emerson after only one year. This left a huge void in our hearts. Losing a pet is a horrible ordeal. Especially, when that loved one was so innocent, and wanted nothing more than to give, and receive love.

Upon chance, my wife came across the site for Caring Hearts Rescue, saw a picture, and instantly fell in love with Henry, an 8 year old Pomeranian, in need of a new, forever home.

The entire staff at Caring Hearts Rescue did an amazing job of walking us through the adoption process; answering all our questions, and most importantly, ensuring we were the perfect fit for Henry. Both Sabina, and Henry's foster mom, Debi were wonderful from start to finish. My wife still keeps in contact with them both when we have any additional questions, or we just want to share any proud parent photo's of Henry.

Thanks so much to everyone at Caring Hearts Rescue!!

Several years ago I adopted a female shihtzu from this rescue. She had lived in.a crate for seven years & had never touched grass, concrete..etc. This rescue is the most compassionate, hard working group I've ever encountered. Any dog they rescue gets immediate medical attention, special handling, training, u name it. Before a dog is put up for adoption they ensure the dog is ready to be adopted. They are very careful to whom a dog goes to and they are very serious about home visits. They provide classes in training, grooming, etc. They develop creative ideas for fundraising. This is a top notch rescue with a wonderful group of people that truly care about the dogs..Joni Wood

LOVE Caring Hearts Rescue! You will never get so much help, advice, training, and appreciation from a rescue when you adopt a dog than you will from this rescue. CHR rescued Lobo and allowed this neglected dog to live a wonderful life with us despite his disabilities (had to have
leg removed and suffered joint immune issues due to previous owner neglect). He has always been the most positive, can-do, loving dog with more character than you could ever imagine. :)

She has a heart of gold but she is tough she will not let any of her pups suffer in anyway!! She truly loves the dogs! She has also been such a teacher to ME! I thought I knew alot about dogs and their care and training but she knows more! She is a wealth of information as I also tell adopters!!! If she can't answer it she will find out! Its been the most rewarding experience for me and I am so happy I did this!!!

We became foster parents to assist Caring Hearts Rescue and was contacted almost immediately regarding some rescued dogs from a Korean slaughter hose. We took in one of the Shih Tzus named Moca and meet the plane at Dulles Airport. The poor baby arrived in a small carrier with another dog in it. Dirty and tired, he was very happy to get out of that kennel. After two weeks of fostering, we feel in love with this little boy and made the request to adopt him. Caring Hearts Rescue made gnat happen quickly and smoothly and e are the proud parents of Moca (now named Geordi).
