About Our Rescue Group:

We are a small group with decades of experience in all areas of dog training and behavior that are dedicated to rebuilding the reputation of the Pit Bull Terrier. We work as an out reach program but as a rescue as well. Since we are a small group we foster each dog in homes with families and work on all they need to become the best family member that they can be. We also will help any animal in need.


My name is Jessica and I am the president of Paws Crossed Pit Bull Advocacy. I have a very comprehensive background in dogs from training and handling for conformation and obedience, behavioral management and rehabilitation. I spent 15 years working under many of the countries most talented trainers and handlers. I fell in love with Pit Bulls and Am Staffs when I was just a young girl. For the last decade I have spent my time devoted to the love of these amazing dogs and have given all I can to rescue and rehoming them. In the last few years I have realized that these dogs can not be saved just by finding adoptive homes but though education and prevention our goals are reached better. We give people hands on experience to over come the fear and ignorance many people still have due to the media and irresponsible people.

Why should you adopt?

Dog adoption and cat adoption saves lives. Adopt a dog or adopt a cat and you'll have a friend for life! What is the difference between adopting a dog, adopting a cat, adopting a kitten or adopting a puppy versus getting dogs for sale, cats for sale, puppies for sale or kittens for sale from a dog breeder or a cat breeder? When someone is breeding puppies or breeding kittens, they are creating new dogs and cats who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog, cat, puppy or kitten and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale or buy a cat for sale from a puppy breeder or a kitten breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs and cats who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder or buying a cat or kitten for sale from a cat breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog, adopt a cat, adopt a puppy or adopt a kitten at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
