Adopting A Friend

Adoption fees.............Our adoption fees vary.  Adoption fees help us recoup some of the expenses we spend saving these animals and vetting them. Our animals are not for sale.



If you are interested in adopting one of our animals please don't hesitate to email us at changingheartsrescue@aol.com.  We do adopt to other states other than Ohio.  All adopters are required to come to our foster homes.  We prefer for you to see the environment they have been in while with us.  We also require all potential adopters to submit an application to adopt and be APPROVED before you can visit any of our adoptable. We will not adopt to anyone under the age of 24. 



 If you are interested in adopting please email us! We will require you to submit an application. If your application is approved you will then be able to set up an appointment to meet the dog you are interested in!










Who We Are

 We a foster home ONLY organization. We currently only have 2 foster homes. We do have a kennel we board some of our dogs in until they can be placed in foster care.  We are based out of Newton Falls but we have foster homes all over within 45 minutes of Newton Falls. Our animals come from various situations.  We accept dogs from high kill pounds, owner surrenders, hoarders, retired breeding dogs,  special needs dogs, dogs left behind after families move, etc.  We also have a network of other rescues we assist in helping with. We are here to help educate people on the cost and care of dog ownership. Our organization focuses on finding forever homes for animals that have been cast away or no longer wanted.  We feel everyone deserves a chance to find their forever home! We currently have 5 volunteers working with us an we are always looking for more! 

All of our animals are vet checked, spay/neutered, heart worm tested(and treated if needed), on monthly heart worm and flea prevention, Up to date on all shots, some are micro chipped, wormed, and etc. 

While in our foster care we work on house training, leash training, and crate training.  Some of our animals are also taught basic commands. We put a lot of time and patience into the care of our animals in foster care.

Come Visit Us

Our foster homes are available by appointment only.  In order to set up an appointment you would need to have an approved application.  We process applications daily.
