Our Adoptions Process


Crossroads Campus partners with animal care facilities throughout Middle Tennessee to bring in dogs and cats of all breeds, sizes, ages and conditions.  We believe that each of these animals is unique and waiting for that ‘just right’ person to provide them with a loving, lifelong home. Our adoptable pets are available to meet by appointment at our Crossroads Pets- Shop & Adopt, Pet Retail Store. 
If you see a dog or cat that you’d like to meet, please fill out our adoption application or contact our Animal Programs Director for more information.
Please note that we do not ‘hold’ pets, so we encourage same day adoptions if you find your match.  When you come to meet any of our adoptable pets, please bring the following: 
  • Valid ID with proof of address verifying that you are over 21 years of age
  • Phone number of 2 personal, non-relative references
  • Veterinarian reference (if you have a veterinarian)
  • Copy of lease agreement or condominium association codes validating that pets are allowed

About Shorty

It’s been a hard knock life for me.  I was spotted running and eluded capture for several months.  When they finally caught me, I had a metal ring around my neck that was embedded into my skin.  I was sick, scared, in pain, and very shut down.  Crossroads saw me and the deal was sealed…my “ruff” days are behind me.

I’m staying in a foster home where they call me Shorty (trying to remind themselves that I’m only here for a short time).  I’ve become very attached to my new dog friend, but am still a little leery of the humans.  My foster mom says they just need to take it slow…and I love her for it.  They say I’m a foodie and am now a healthy weight and my wounds are healed.  They are thrilled that I am house trained!  I’m very curious, but can be nervous with new things.  I love chew toys, bones and tugs, but mostly just love to play! 

I’m about 2 years old, and perfect at under 40 pounds.  I am neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped and  would love a forever home (a dog friend would be a huge bonus).   I’m ready to put the past behind me.  Can I do it with you?

Wendell – Adopted

About Wendell

Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay. My, oh, my, what a wonderful day!

Hi! I’m Wendell and today I was pulled from a large Animal Control facility and taken to Crossroads. I’m a happy-go-lucky guy who loves life. No one appreciates a rousing game of fetch more than I do, but unfortunately, that’s why I ended up in a shelter. Sometimes I get so excited when grabbing a ball, that I don’t notice there might be a hand in the way.

I’m sweet as honey and as smart as they come.  I already know sit & lay down, I seem to be crate trained and did I mention that I’m a champion at fetch?  I’m young too, about 10 months old, so I have a lot to learn still but I’m just about full grown at around 60lbs. I’ve been neutered, am up to date on all my vaccinations and microchipped.

I know there’s plenty of sunshine headed my way, I just wonder if you’ll be the one with me for these beautiful days.

About Gretta

It’s a scary time in America right now, but I’m here to remind the world that there is hope.  You see, I’ve lived my entire life (10 years or more) in a horrible situation.  I didn’t get proper nutrition, medical care, or even access to go outside.  I was “impounded” as a cruelty case.  That might sound bad to you, but that was the best day of my life.  

After a quick once-over at the shelter, I came to Crossroads.  I smelled terrible, I had patches of missing hair, I itched all over to the point of making myself bleed, and I could barely stand for more than a few seconds at a time.  

Here’s where HOPE comes in to play.  People thought I was on my last legs and just wanted to find a comfortable place to live out my days.  Since coming to my foster home, I am now clean, I’m getting proper nutrition, my itching has nearly stopped, my fur has started growing in, and I LOVE going for walks and exploring the neighborhood!  I feel like a new (old) dog!!   

I do well with other dogs and am house trained.  I am most happy when I can lie down near an AC vent and take a nap.  I am spayed, up to date on all vaccinations and every day seems to bring me more promise.  I may be a senior, but I know my best days are ahead of me!  Will you be the one I spend them with?

Paris – Adopted

About Paris

If a name can affect personality, I am a purr-fect example.  I am elegant and like to take my time and observe before venturing too much, but once I’m comfortable, I can’t wait to explore.  Like a typical Parisian, I won’t eat just anything.  I am a bit finicky, so could stand to gain a little weight.

I enjoy my time lounging on a sunny windowsill watching the birds and squirrels go by and love to snuggle with my companion, Valentine.

I am 3 years old, up to date on vaccinations, spayed and have a microchip.  All I need is a forever family to call my own.

Valentine – Adopted

About Valentine

All I need is love, thus the name Valentine.  I won’t give my heart to just anyone though.  It’s been broken before, so I take my time warming up.  When I do, it is well worth the time and effort to gain my trust.

My favorite pastime is drinking from the faucet!  I also enjoy sitting in a sunny windowsill with my bestie, Paris.  We can spend hours watching the wildlife.   We are both very calm kitties who are well behaved.  

I am also about 3 years old, up to date on vaccinations, spayed, microchipped and ready for a new family.  I hope you’ll come to meet me soon!

Kit – Adopted

About Kit

I am a bit of a mystery – nobody knows where I come from or what I’ve seen, but I’m ready for a new life.  I came to Metro Animal Care & Control and was nervous and shy.   My foster home has dogs – I like them and they are very respectful, but I keep a little distance.  It took me a week or so to get comfortable enough to explore this new place, but now I venture out more and am getting to know the people and find them to be interesting and am starting to appreciate the occasional snuggle.

I am just over a year old, vaccinated and microchipped.  I still need to be spayed but am waiting for MACC to re-open for surgery. I’d love to stay with someone as a foster so we can get to know each other then make it my forever home.  Are you up for it?

Adoption Fees

Adoption fee is $90.
