Leonardo, a senior mixed breed, was dumped in a high-kill gassing facility. He is now safe...and as you can see, has plenty of love left to give and life left to LIVE..

Our passion is providing a second chance...

Paws Crossroads (formerly Pennsylvania Stray Save, Inc.) is a small group of volunteers located in northeast PA dedicated to the rescue and adoption of death-row shelter animals, from areas all along the east coast. Many of these animals would be put to sleep, simply because the shelters lack the space to provide them enough time to find the right forever home. 

We founded our Organization in 2008 and have helped hundreds of animals find the road to their new life in that timeframe. We have a small core group of supporters and foster homes that has remained vigilantly by our side throughout our quest in saving lives. For these supporters, foster homes, and adopters we are eternally grateful. Without them, PCAR simply would not be.

Paws Crossroads Animal Rescue, Inc. is a 501 c 3 non-profit organization - all donations are tax deductible. Although we do not have a physical kennel facility, we are a licensed rescue kennel network in the State of Pennsylvania, and are inspected by the Department of Agriculture.
