Every Outcome Is Important

Crossing Paths Animal Rescue’s 2018 baseline reporting is comprised of total intake, adoption and transfer numbers for the 2018 calendar year. In 2019, Crossing Paths Animal Rescue will move to meet or exceed current Asilomar Standards, data that tracks the status of every animal using a nationally recognized standard. The data shall provide a detailed and actual breakdown of the health and adoption status of every rescue in our care.

To establish a baseline by age group for 2018 intake, adoption and transfer total numbers, a January 12, 2019 through February 2, 2019 average based on adoptions has been applied using the following methodology: 102 adoptions, 36 aged 5 months or younger (35%); 40 aged 5 months to 1 year (39%); 21 aged 1 year to 5 years (21%); and 5 aged 5 years or older (5%).

Adoptions in 2018: 98.3% Save Rate

Crossing Paths Animal Rescue placed 963 rescues into loving, caring forever homes in 2018, with a 98.3% save rate. Rescues taken into Crossing Paths Animal Rescue remain available for adoption as long as necessary (at times a full year or more), moms are never left behind and every life-saving effort is deployed to save these precious lives - costs never passed on to our adopters through adoption fees.

Crossing Paths Animal Rescue’s save rate of 98.3% is notable as it includes 1,216 animals transferred to Crossing Paths Animal Rescue from 5 animal welfare agencies (such as humane societies and animal control agencies) in Alabama, a partnership with a senior dog rescue and includes aiding our neighboring southern states in the aftermath of hurricanes Florence and Michael – lives given a “second chance” at finding a home through Crossing Paths Animal Rescue when time and resources had expired at their shelters or when senior rescues had aged their whole lives in rescue care.
