Paws Crossed Animal Rescue

Elmsford, NY

Paws Crossed Animal Rescue is a true no kill, 501(c)3 organization located in Elmsford NY. Through rescue, rehabilitation, rehoming, advocacy, and education, our mission is to "Rescue One By One Until There Are None". Paw Crossed was formed when the previous organization in Elmsford closed their doors in Sept 2015 and consolidated all assets (funds and animals) to their other location. The community demanded a true no kill return to Westchester.... and Paws Crossed was born and has been a whirlwind ever since! As a new organization we work on a shoestring budget, and as you can imagine, 5,000 meals for our furries would be a much needed, and well used gift. In addition to our constant rescues (our goal is 1,000 for 2017!), we have just received the 1st half of the 'legacy dogs' back from the previous organization. These dogs are ones that may have an issue, whether resource guarding or people selective, etc... but each dog has a group of Westchester people that adore them. The remaining dogs will be returned, at the latest, in January 2018. Thank you for this opportunity! We look forward to participating in the contest staring Feb. 19th, 2017!
