Pets at Our Rescue Group:

Cities, Towns, and/or Counties We Serve:

We are a northern extension, a satellite, of Crossing Paths Animal Rescue which is headquartered in Alabama. We help to introduce the more northerly states to the face of the southern dog.even as we help people understand that where a dog is located should not discourage adoption of that dog.

About Our Rescue Group:

We are a small group of people here in Pennsylvania who believe strongly that the plight of the southern dog is an American embarrassment which only education and adoption can even begin to address. The southern dog is penalized by the why and the where of their own birth...by lax or non-existent spay/neuter laws which is then compounded by the low number of adoptions that occur there.

We believe that all dogs need homes, no matter where they come from, north, south, east, or west! They deserve fine and loving homes.

We are a retired English teacher, a retired social worker, and others who volunteer our time to do all we can to help Crossing Paths dogs do just that, cross paths with families who will love them and take care of them. They deserve no less.

Come Meet our Pets:

We have 6 adoption events each year. They are held at a local Petsmart in Newtown, PA as well as a local Petco in Feasterville, PA. We transport our adopted dogs up from Alabama. OUR NEXT ADOPTION DAY WILL BE at Petsmart in Newtown, PA on Saturday, November 16, 2013 from 10 to 4.
Interested adopters may also adopt any of our dogs without meeting them first. We facilitate conversations between fosters and potential adopters as an aid to help in the decision process.

Families can also visit our rescue in Alabama.

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 or puppy versus getting dogs for sale or puppies for sale from a dog breeder? When someone is breeding puppies, they are creating new dogs who need homes. Some people are interested in a very specific breed of dog or puppy and they think the only way to find that specific breed is to buy a dog for sale from a puppy breeder. Yet animal shelters are filled with dogs who must find homes. So rather than buying a dog or puppy for sale from a dog breeder, we encourage people to adopt a dog or adopt a puppy at their local animal shelter, SPCA, humane society or pet rescue group.
