Paws Crossed Animal Rescue in Elmsford recently announced the grand opening of its new adoption center.

If you’re an animal lover in Westchester, you’ve likely heard of Paws Crossed Animal Rescue before. The nonprofit and no-kill animal rescue organization has been operating since 2016. In the 914, Paws Crossed and its staff craft a safe haven for adoptable animals. And, to help with this effort, the center’s building has recently undergone a transformation. With the grand opening of the new adoption center, which boasts upgrades for the staff and pets, Paws Crossed hopes to help even more four-legged friends in Westchester.

In Elmsford, the 5,900-square-foot space has two floors and has been reintroduced as the brand-new adoption center. It features four new cat rooms, doubling what the organization had before, three meet-and-greet rooms, a small retail store, offices, a large community room, and an animal clinic.

“We have been dreaming of this incredible day for years.” says Jennifer Angelucci, the President and CEO of Paws Crossed. “With a lot of hard work and planning, tenacity, passion, compassion, big animal loving hearts, and the best community support ever, our dreams are becoming a lifesaving reality!”

With the help of fundraising, the hard-working, big-hearted staff at Paws Crossed, and the community, the new center will impact even more animals in the area. The new space will increase the number of orphaned pets the organization is able to rescue, decreasing overpopulation while also decreasing euthanasia rates. Plus, pets will experience top-tier comfort in the facility along with immediate, in-house medical care.

The adoption process will be swift, thanks to the meet-and-greet rooms that will provide a much-needed one-on-one space for the families to meet adoptable pups.

The Westchester nonprofit’s main objective is to become a bigger resource for the community and help solve the crisis of staggering pet overpopulation, homelessness, and tragically high euthanasia numbers. By doing so, the organization will be more than capable of providing a comfortable place for adoptable pets within the facility.

The Adoption Center received a generous grant from The Thursday Club, a group of women committed to the community. Paws Crossed was one of the four organizations in the running to receive the grant. On April 14, the staff attended The Thursday Club’s Barking ’20s-themed gala to celebrate the acceptance of the grant.

Last month, Paws Crossed held a ribbon cutting ceremony for the new adoption center, which included tours of the building, a tag sale, and, of course, lots of wonderful adoptees in attendance.
