​​​Crossing Paths Animal Rescueis a 501(c)3 organization based in Locust Fork, Alabama,  dedicated to placing abandoned and homeless pets into new forever loving homes.  


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.   Many of the dogs are adopted by families in the Northeast and 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.
