Founder of Caring Hearts for Canines: Jennifer Johnston Chopping
Jennifer is a lifelong animal lover and advocate. After years of working for other dog rescues, Jennifer decided to begin her own rescue in Southern Pines, North Carolina.

Jennifer demonstrates  not only what it means to care, but how to make a real difference in this world.
