Our Adoptions Process

 

Crossroads 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.   Our Adoptions Coordinator will go through them in the order in which they come in and will contact approved applicants to set up appointments.  Applications will be kept on file for 6 months after submission.
 
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

Razz

About Razz

Hi my name is Razz and my anxious alter ego is Razzle Dazzle!

I think we can all agree that this past year has brought in social anxiety with everyone.  Well, I can say it definitely has for myself!

I don’t like being in the hustle and bustle of people and lots of noises. I am hoping to find someone that enjoys a quiet home and is happy to allow me to hang around whatever they may be doing. At night, I love to be able to sleep with my human but this isn’t a hard and fast requirement.  Of course, who wouldn’t want to be woken up by me for cuddles and pets?!

I can be a fantastic alarm clock in the mornings. I am definitely partial to the ladies, but with some patience and work I could come around to a guy or two.

As you can see in my picture I enjoy the outdoor life and going on hiking adventures. I’ll happily get my feet wet to cool down but don’t expect me to be a water dog.  I really have no interest in making any male dog friends.

As a herding breed, I NEED good mental stimulation from my human. I already know: sit, down, touch, shake and circle. I am working on my impulse control by learning to wait at doorways.

When I’m really feeling my anxiety and there’s a lot going on I have been known to nip at feet but this has subsided as my anxiety has become more manageable.

Long story long…I’m really ready to find my home and be the best cat-like dog for the right human.

Roo

About Roo
Hi I’m Roo! Crossroads scooped me up and helped me feel safe enough to show my true personality.
 
I’m a very springy little guy (all 12 pounds of me) with a touch of timid. I’m nervous with new people but warm up pretty quickly. Once that happens I’m as light as a bird and these LONG legs can bounce up almost to eye level.
 
I want to make doggo friends but so far everyone seems wayyyyyyyyy too excited to chase me when I run away which only makes me want to run away more! Maybe if I found a friend that was less like Tigger and more like Eeyore I’d be happy to bounce with them as well.
 
I understand why Crossroads has to keep me in a kennel but I don’t understand why I have to be in there alone. I truly want to be a companion in every sense of the word.
 
I’m kennel trained, up to date on vaccinations, microchipped and will soon be neutered. If you want a Roo to complete your Kanga apply for me today!

Butterscotch

About Butterscotch

Hi I’m Butterscotch! I’m a young adult neutered male.

Ya’ll ready for some sweetness that melts into your hands?? That’s me!

I was found by a loving family when I was just a kitten. They wanted to keep me but I really just didn’t vibe with their current feline family member.

Since being at Crossroads I have become the favorite (don’t tell the others). I am playful but I appreciate the cuddles and pets just as much!

I have gotten used to being around but not in direct contact with the other cats but I think the single life is best for me.

If you have a sweet tooth that can only be filled by kitty cuddles, apply for me today!

Denali

About Denali

They call me Denali.  I’m a sweet girl and lately I’ve been keeping to myself, but that’s probably because my whole world has been turned upside down.

After almost 3 years of being an “only child”, my mom had a baby and the house was a completely different place…new things everywhere, loud noises like I’d never heard before and strange people coming and going all the time! 

I started hiding and swatting at new people and they finally realized how unhappy I’d been.  I’ve been to the vet for a full work-up and I’m healthy…I just needed some respite.  

I’m here at Crossroads now and have slowly been coming out of my shell.  The interns and staff have been letting me adjust slowly because they know transition is hard for any cat, but especially for me.

I love getting my cheeks rubbed and stretching my legs.  When I do find a quiet new home to call my own, I may need some extra time to decompress. 

My new family will eventually find that I am soft-hearted as well as soft-furred!   If you’re looking for a soft-spoken, furry companion, I might be your girl!
