As the foster picked up the ringing phone, he had no way of knowing that he would end up with a 5 puppy litter of Labrador Retriever mixes.  He also wouldn't know why.  Then he found out.  Several miles away, a family moved into their newly purchased home only to discover that the previous owners had abandoned them in the back yard.  They and another puppy were in awful shape.  Would our foster come and get them?  Silly question, huh?  Especially if you know our fosters.  Well, off he went to pick up these little babies that had almost no hair, were cold, were scared, and had no idea that they were being saved.  He called them the 'A' litter and gave each one a name starting with A.  There are three males:  Audie, Austin, and Atom, and two females:  Alaina and Alia.  They are presently 4 1/2 months old, and weigh approximately 15 lbs.  except for Alia, the runt of the litter.  She weighs 11 lbs. and will probably mature to between 35 and 40 whereas the others will be in the 45 lb. range.  Yes, Alia is smaller than the rest, but her foster also says she is the most graceful despite her vision in only one eye while the other never fully developed.  So, here they are, loving and gentle, no longer frightened and no longer cold...after all, their hair has grown back in!    (posted 3/19/17, PK, N/A) 

**It is rare that we know with certainty the ages or mixes that make up our wonderful dogs, but we do our best to be as accurate as possible based upon our many years in rescue.**

Adoption: $285 which covers quarantine, shots, worming, food, medical records, spaying/neutering, and an Alabama State Health Certificate.

Transport, if needed :  $120.00    We consider the transport to be of great importance and, as such, take particular care of the dogs during the trip from Alabama.  We make every effort to arrive with healthy and minimally stressed dogs.

About Crossing Paths Animal Rescue - Patricia's AL Chapter

About Our Rescue Group...

Crossing Paths is a 501(c)3 animal rescue organization based in Locust Fork, Alabama.
Several times per week, Mary Ellen Tidwell, the President of Crossing Paths Animal Rescue, visits one of the many the high-kill facilities in Alabama and removes as many adoptable dogs as she can accommodate in her own kennels and foster homes. Dogs which are adopted by families in the Northeast are transported every two to three weeks to PA/NJ/NY/MD and various locations in the Northeast.
When the transport leaves to bring the adopted dogs north, Mary Ellen returns to the high-kill facility to fill the vacancies left by the adopted dogs. What does this mean for you?

Our Adoption Process...

We are not a shelter, our dogs are in a network of foster homes. We have transports of adopted dogs to Hagerstown, MD area and as far north as Newtown , PA (and points along the way) at least every 3 weeks.

Please see our website for adoption and transport fee info.
If you are interested in any of our dogs, the first step is to submit the application found on our website.

List any dogs that interest you in order of preference. If you don't see anything right now, check back often as we update frequently. ( Note that there are 2 links on our website adoptable dog page):
When your application is approved, we will put you in touch with the dog's foster mom/dad who will answer any questions you may have and so that the foster may get a feel for your situation and determine if the dog will be a good fit for your particular household. If all that ends on a positive note, we'll finalize the adoption (process payment) and schedule the dog for transport, if needed.

If you are uncomfortable adopting a dog without a prior face-to-face meeting and you are in the PA/NJ area, we have adoption events several times per year at local pet stores in Newtown, PA or Lawrenceville, NJ for which we bring up 15-20 adoptable dogs. Watch our website for up coming events.

* PLEASE NOTE: We review the applications in order of receipt and many of our potential adopters who are otherwise qualified miss out on a dog that has stolen their hearts because the application came in later than others of equal merit. Here's my advice: file the application ASAP. Don't waste time sending an inquiry asking info on the dogs and if they are available. We , on the front lines, don't know each dog personally; what we do know is in the description we have provided . We will let you know if the dog is available or not upon receipt of your application and give you the opportunity to select another.
