Programs and results

What we aim to solve

SOURCE: Self-reported by organization

We began as a simple rescue. We rescued and rehabilitated canines we pulled out of shelters, but wanted our re-homing or return rate to be 0%, so we began training in basic obedience so each canine adopted went to a home fully vetted, micro-chipped, and trained in the basics. From there, we took our passion to the next level and recently started training diabetic detection dogs. With the increasing rate of diabetes in Americans, the need for diabetic detection dogs has increased. Having a diabetic detection dog increases a persons lifestyle and decreases stress since there is less worry of having an undetected diabetic emergency.

New in 2019, we are developing a program to train a police dog for a surrounding police department in need of a new or retiring K-9. The K-9 will be a donation, training the K-9 will be provided by Crossroads. We will work with the community to raise funds to offset the costs of the rest (vetting, food, equipment)

Charting impact

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

What is the organization aiming to accomplish?

We would like to improve our training/kenneling facility, increase resources available, and become one of the top facilities in the Country. We currently have a small facility with less than 2,000 sq feet of training room, 6 kennels. We have a 10 acre property, but need to fence in a portion of that for training and exercise. By the end of 2019, we would like to have our current facility remodeled, fully updated, and have the needed equipment to train easily and effortlessly so we can get the dogs into the homes they need to be in. We would like to be in full training mode for our Crossroads K-9s for Cops program and increase the number of diabetic detection dogs through our facility.

We have set up three fundraisers for 2019 thus far, possibly a fourth. Our biggest expense is vetting each dog, so any revenue above our operating cost is greatly diminished on unhealthy, unvetted, or dogs that have not been spayed/neutered. We also volunteer time at Lambeau field to bring in money during the winter months to offset heat expenses, additional vet bills, or emergent bills that come in. Our trainer is also in school to train at the professional level for obedience, puppy imprinting, scent detection, and K-9 work. He will donate his time to training basic obedience on all rescue intakes, as well as our yearly Crossroads K-9s for Cops canine.

In the latter half of 2018, we brought on a marketing team that takes care of our website, promos, and fundraisers. 2019 will be the first full year that we have had a full marketing team. Our social media has grown tremendously since the start of the marketing team, our name has gotten out to the local community and beyond. We have begun remodeling our kennel building and purchasing training aids. Our trainer also now is at the facility full time to support our operation.

We will know if we are making progress by meeting goals. 1. Finish training classes in the Professional level 2. Remodel of current facility completed 3. Pay off current debt 4. Increase the diabetic detection canines through the program 5. Donate the first Crossroads K-9s for Cops to a local PD in need

We have taken a simple rescue and turned it into something bigger than we ever dreamed. The future holds endless possibilities, but whatever we do, we want to be the best. We want our adoption return rates to continue to be 0%. We want to continue to offer support and training for all of our adopters for the remainder of their pets lives. We would also like to start a public education program about the German Shepherd and Belgian Mallinois breeds.
