Heavenly Care Kennels
Cindy Tripp, Owner/Operator/Groomer - Cindy is a graduate of Animal Arts Academy- a state accredited professional pet grooming school. Both of her parents were lifetime members of the White River Golden Retriever Club and raised Cindy around the dogs and taught her to train the animals with respect and to show them both in the ring and in the field. She has spent her entire life loving and caring for all types of animals and would love the opportunity to care for yours.
She grew up next door and graduated from Westfield Washington High School in 1985. She pursued her career in marketing and printing for 20+ years including a freelance desktop publishing company she operated while working full time. Cindy bought the property beside her mom's and started the farm in 1997 where she has raised goats, horses, cows a pig and of course dogs and cats. She left corp America in 1999 to be a proprietor of a small restaurant in Eagletown where she was blessed with really getting to know the people in her own community. Cindy was very happy with her life and loved serving people on a daily basis but this was not what GODS plan was for her. Spiritual awakening showed her true gifts were with our furry friends and if she was to follow her up most passion and utilize GODS gifts she would need to focus her world towards them. She enrolled in groom school 2007 to hone her previous skills and after graduating, started Heavenly Care Kennels. Her family and friends supported her as she created a loving, fun, safe haven for our furry friends to come to. She continues to put her heart and soul into the business and by word of mouth it has become what it is today.
Jill Dollens - She grew up in the Westfield area and graduated in 2005 from Westfield Washington High School. She is Cindy's niece and they both share the same love for our furry friends. Her first job was working at the restaurant in Eagletown with Cindy and other family members. After it closed she followed her love for helping people. Educated in child development training she taught kids how to swim. Then spent several years caring for the elderly and developmentally disabled of all ages. Jill started at the kennel in Sept 2009 and learned all aspects of the business including grooming. Her love of the puppies sparked her desire to learn even more and she put herself through Harrison College where she earned her Associates degree in Applied Science in Veterinary Technology and is a proud Registered Veterinary Technician. We feel truly blessed to have her expertise helping us keeping all the babies looking and feeling their best.
Dayna Cancel - also grew up in Westfield and graduated with Cindy in 1985. She went on to attend Huntington University where she earned her Bachelor of Science degree in Recreation Management. She worked several summers across the nation teaching and nurturing kid's while at summer camps. For 20+years she worked at Stoney Creek Swim Center where she taught kid's of all ages to swim and created a safe environment in a therapy pool for special need's children which she enjoyed very much. A company restructure forced her too seek other employment and she started at Heavenly Care Kennels in 2010. Once she started playing and caring for the babies, she was hooked. She loves all furry babies and has a ball coming up with a variety of games and such to stimulate their minds and ensure they are active. She is currently certified in CPR and first aid for the Professional Rescuer and help all of the staff achieve their Dog CPR training and certification. We are very honored to have her on our team. And hope she stays with us forever.
