Established in 2006, Crossing Paths Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3) organization based in Blount County, Alabama - dedicated to placing abused, abandoned, and neglected animals into new forever loving homes.
To find loving homes for abused, abandoned and neglected animals. To spay/neuter our rescued dogs of age to stop the cycle of unwanted litters. To assist in public education for the betterment of our local community. To maintain a high standard of care for the animals; including veterinary care, housing, love, tenderness, and compassion at all times.
Crossing Paths Animal Rescue works toward the day when every dog has a loving home, when no dog will suffer from abuse, neglect or abandonment.
Crossing Paths Animal Rescue is a 501(c)(3) organization based in Blount County , Alabama dedicated to placing abandoned and homeless dogs into new forever loving homes. Mary Ellen Tidwell, the President and co-founder of Crossing Paths regularly visits several of the many local high-kill facilities and removes as many adoptable dogs as she can accommodate in her own kennels and foster homes. Many of the dogs are adopted by families in the Northeast where there is high demand, and the dogs are transported every 3 weeks to their new families. 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.
