The 2024 "I'm Rescued and Notorious” Calendar Contest Is Now Open!

It's time to enter your pet in The Crossings Animal Society's 5th Annual calendar contest.  This year’s contest, “I’m Rescued and Notorious”, celebrates the behavior of our companion animals that can make you laugh, sometimes irritate you, or have you rolling your eyes and shaking your head.  

The contest opens on Wednesday, August 30 at 8:00 a.m. and ends on Sunday, October 15 at midnight.


Entering the contest is easy. Submit a photo of your rescue pet, along with a $10 entry fee. Then, in 250-300 words, tell us the story of your notorious pet -- how s/he became part of the family, what your pet means to you, and exactly how s/he can be notorious.  (If you need assistance with your story, we can help.)  

The contest is open for all companion animals adopted through a rescue organization or shelter or found as a stray. 

What if your pet is not a rescue?  You can reserve a calendar day for his or her photo to appear on. You can also reserve a day to honor your pet.  

Photos of the 12 companion animals who receive the most votes, along with their stories, will be featured on a full page above one of the months on the calendar.


Attention rescues and sheltersThe rescue or rescue or shelter with the most combined number of votes wins a $500 grant!

The net proceeds from the contest and calendar sales will support the work of The Crossings Animal Society, serving dogs and cats in need in our community.

We Need Your Help to Save the Lives of Trenton Dogs!

Trenton Animal Shelter has been directed by the City of Trenton to  begin killing healthy and adoptable dogs. They are now putting down FIVE DOGS A WEEK!

The dog pictured here, Laura, is one of the Trenton Dogs.

The Crossings Animal Society (CAS), has pledged to help as many of these dogs as we can.

We are taking responsibility to assist with seven of the Trenton Dogs, six of whom are currently housed at Yardley Animal Kennels - Block, Myla, Sasha, Chapo, Laura, and Violet.  Angel is current at Trenton Animal Shelter.

We need your help to save these seven dogs, then many, many more.  


All 10 Trenton Dogs who were "time-stamped" to be put down have been saved!  For more details, and to find out how you can help, Click Here:

Introducing "Fur-ever Match",
our new adoption program

We know how challenging it can sometimes
be to search for a rescue dog or cat.  In our new program, we do the searching for you!

All you have to do is complete an adoption application.  Once your adoption is reviewed


and approved, we'll search for just the right dog or cat for your family. We take into account the size, age range, temperament, gender, activity level, and other-pet friendliness of the rescue you want to add to your family forever.  

All the pets we adopt are spayed and neutered, as well as up-to-date on all vaccinations. All are healthy; in cases for which there are health concerns, they are fully disclosed.

For more information and/or an adoption application, email us at


There's so much going on in the world to day that is out of your control.  But what you can do as a CAS volunteer makes a big difference in the lives of homeless dogs and cats, and the families who adopt them forever.
This year, our volunteer teams include:

  • Adoptions, surrenders, and fosters

  • Fundraising

  • Education

  • Communications, Promotion, and Public Relations

  • Community Partners and Donor Relationships

  • Animal Help & Adoption Network

We'd love to have you join us as a volunteer team member. For more information, click on our Volunteer Opportunities page and request an application.​
