[ARCHIVED] Today is Paws Crossed day

-stop by, enjoy the entertainment and adopt a dog from the best no kill shelter around!

Today is the 4th annual Paws Crossed day.  Paws Crossed is located at 100 Warehouse Lane South (near Sams Club in Elmsford)  and is a no kill animal shelter. This is a fun event - an opportunity to enjoy the entertainment that will be provided by the 107.1The Peak. From 12-3 they will be playing music and handing out lots of fun giveaways.  There will be face painting for kids, great vendors and you can also adopt a dog from the best no kill shelter around.  The motto of Paws Crossed is Rescue one by one until there are none.

The town of Greenburgh was instrumental in helping Paws Crossed find it's home here in Greenburgh.  In 2015 there was speculation that the previous shelter would not be a no kill shelter.  Pets Alive (the former shelter) had cited mounting expenses and major structural problems prior to shutting down the no kill shelter in 2015. They were prepared to sell the property for commercial use.  We objected noting that when the five acre property was sold to the Central Westchester Humane Society by the town in 1995 for $10 there was a requirement that it be used only for an animal shelter or for municipal purposes.  Pets Alive had taken over its operation in 2010 from the Humane Society.

We are all very impressed with the great job that Paws Crossed has been doing.  If you are looking to adopt "a best friend" stop by at the shelter today. You'll fall in love with some of the dogs that want a loving family.
