We're always happy to accept collars, leads, bedding, coats etc......
Paws Crossed is a not-for-profit organisation. Rescue doesn't come free; as well as the tears..... the transport costs, food & housing, and vet bills for the rescue are significant.
All our dogs are given thorough health checks, are vaccinated, wormed &flea'd, micro-chipped, spayed and given any other treatment including surgery where necessary, to ensure they have the best possible chance.
Many will need grooming due to their poor state; matted and urine stained coats don't just look and smell horrid but they are very uncomfortable and make the dog's skin sore.
Unfortunately some of our dogs have had troubled pasts, mostly they just need time and a calm, consistent, loving environment to nurture them back to the life they deserve. But sometimes they have been severely traumatised and this can affect their behaviour; they are scared and don't understand. Where necessary we ensure an experienced dog behaviourist is involved, this may sometimes need intense residential rehab.
If you are able to help by donating dog bedding, collars, leashes, dog food or anything you think one of our dogs might be in need of please get in touch.
Any monetary donations cannot be currently paid directly to Paws Crossed but can be paid to our Vets at Colne Valley Veterinary Practice to help pay for Veterinary fees.
If you would like to run a fundraising event please get in touch to discuss how your fundraising can be used to help as many dogs as possible. Lets us know when and where and we can list it on our Event and Facebook page.

Your Time - Fostering.....
We have a dedicated team of fosterers whose love, kindness and care help to settle the dogs and allow them to adjust to a home environment, as well as affording us the opportunity to assess the dog fully to ensure the right home can be found for them and to provide some day-to-day training to optimise their settling in to their forever home. Depending on the dog's needs this may be emergency fostering to ensure the dog has a safe place short term or for slightly longer, as a stepping stone to adoption. Fostering is not an easy role but if you feel this is something you could help with please get in touch to discuss.
