We are transforming lives by creating opportunities for individuals facing poverty and homelessness to care for homeless dogs and cats.
Our services lead the way to a better community.
Crossroads Campus provides paid job training in pet-related careers, affordable housing, social-emotional support systems and life coaching to break the cycle of poverty among young adults.
Any day of the week you can find those of us at Crossroads working hard to transform the lives of people and animals.
We create paid job-training internships for young adults who lack the connections and experience needed to break into the workforce.
We provide affordable housing for young adults on the brink of homelessness; offering stability, safety and community to those who need it most.
We find loving homes for dogs & cats.
Educate and empower
We educate and empower people to take care of their pets.
Empathy and compassion
We enhance empathy and compassion for all living things through positive interactions with animals.
Shop with a purpose
We support pet owners through our social enterprise that offers high quality pet products and grooming services for consumers looking to make a “purchase with a purpose.”
Your purchase has purpose at Crossroads Pets – Shop & Adopt. In addition to providing top quality pet products in our charming retail store, rescued dogs and cats are available for adoption and young adults receive job training, mentoring and access to affordable housing. All proceeds from our shop go back into supporting the Crossroads mission.
Your pets deserve the best! Our professional dog (and cat) groomers treat your pets like family when they visit the Crossroads grooming salon. All the proceeds from our professional grooming services go back into supporting our mission of improving the lives of the youth and animals in our community.
We provide young adults with paid job training internships through our Pet Retail Store, Grooming Salon, Animal Care/Pet Adoptions and Dog Treat Bakery. Our program participants also receive social work case management and have access to affordable housing.
When you support ANYTHING we do, you support EVERYTHING we do!
