Crossing Paths Animal Rescue - NJ transport Dog rescue in Hamilton, NJ

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 NJ /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?
EVERY DOG THAT YOU ADOPT FROM CROSSING PATHS MEANS THAT YOU HAVE NOT ONLY SAVED YOUR DOG, BUT YOU HAVE PROVIDED ROOM SO THAT ANOTHER CAN BE RESCUED.

Additional adoption 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.
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.
