In 2013, we rescued Bella. She was about to be euthanized, but we knew she needed another chance. We gave her love, medical attention, and watched her grow into a loving, happy girl that LOVES to play ball.
In 2016, we decided that there are plenty of "Bellas" that could use another chance at love and happiness, so we started a rescue. We became Crossroads K9 Rescue, a 501c3 non-profit organization in July of 2016.
We brought in one, then two more, and watched them change and learn about love. Since beginning rescue operations, we changed the lives of over 120 canines and almost as many families.
In 2018, we took our passion for rescuing dogs and combined that with the love and respect we have for U.S. Military Veterans. We became affiliated with Patriot K9 Partners, a program that provides the training needed for rescue canines to become service animals for veterans struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD), Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI), and Military Sexual Incident (MSI)
We are a volunteer driven non-profit organization that is dedicated to rescuing dogs left homeless and/or abandoned, dogs in overpopulated shelters where they are at high risk of euthanasia, and those in danger of abuse or neglect. We take the time to ensure each of our rescues is restored to physical and emotional health as they await their forever home.
We place dogs in loving, responsible, committed permanent homes, following a comprehensive adoption process, which includes taking considerable care in finding good matches and educating prospective adopters and offering continued support.
Each animal is thoroughly vetted, spayed/neutered (if age appropriate), and microchipped before heading to their adoptive home.
Our rescue remains interested in and committed to the welfare of the dog beyond the adoption process. We strive to work with our adoptive families to offer support, continued training, and develop a network of supporters in order to create a better world for our rescues.
