Crossroads Pets- Shop & Adopt is a neighborhood “pet store” where rescued pets are in need of adoption and the employees are disadvantaged young people in need of job training in a loving and supportive environment.
Crossroads Pets showcases homeless dogs and cats who have “run out of time” at animal control. The animals are housed in a clean, comfortable, and stimulating environment, and our interns spend time with them each day.
"To see these young people be so gentle and patient with these rescued animals is inspiring. Each has seen the other side, but through the dog training, they get to interact in a compassionate way and a safe environment. Kindness is the key that opens the door to our hearts."
Debbie Emory Children's Fiction Author / Dog Trainer
It truly was an honor to be able to be involved in this project with Caring Connections. For both myself and for Dr. Stevens, it truly reaffirmed the positive power of animals to transcend so many differences among people.

A dog's purpose in the world is to love us when nobody else does.
