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

Shorty – Adopted

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 can be dog selective and 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 (the right dog friend would be a huge bonus).   I’m ready to put the past behind me.  Can I do it with you?

Nova – Adoption Pending

About Nova

“Star light, star bright, the first star I see tonight…

I wish I may, I wish I might, have the wish I wish tonight.”

I’m a little star who is wishing for someone to show me the world. I’m not sure why I’m here and I really just want a person or people to call my own.

When Crossroads picked me up, they were told that I had a little dog friend once…before my family took me to a shelter, but he tried to eat my food and I didn’t react very well to that. I don’t mind if the people try to take it.

The nice people here say I’m very thin and have flat feet so maybe I haven’t had very good nutrition which would make me feel REALLY hungry all of the time. Now that I’m getting plenty of good food, I don’t seem to mind little dogs so much!

At my young age of 7 months, I am house trained, spayed, up-to-date on all my shots and even microchipped!

I’m very attentive. I love to sit for treats and am learning to lay down too! I could use more training because I’m full of fun, puppy-like energy but really, I just keep wishing for my super star to come along.

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 eventually taken from my home and  “impounded” as a cruelty case.  That might sound sad 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?

Milo – Adopted

About Milo

If you’re looking for a low-maintenance dog, well, I’m your guy!  

My name is Milo, and yes I know I’m a cat, but what cat follows his people around, rolls over for belly rubs and asks for petting and affection?   I am really the best of both worlds!    You never have to take me out for walks or carry around bags of poo (I can’t believe you humans really do that several times a day) and even better, I have lived with a dog and loved him! 

The staff at Crossroads said I am their first COVID-19 victim…my person lost her job and her home so she felt it was best to find a new family that could continue to care for me. 

I am 3 years old, up to date on vaccinations, neutered and have a microchip.  Can I be your dog/cat?

Hotch – Adopted

About Hotch

Imagine a life at only 12 inches tall and 8 pounds on the mean streets of Nashville (OK – I know Nashville is a friendly town, but let’s just go with it for the sake of my story). 

I’m a senior (somewhere between 8-10 years old), so part of the “vulnerable” population during these COVID-19 days, and I was found as a stray. 

A very nice person found me running – so I bit her.  Well, I didn’t actually bite, but I was clearly afraid of her and let her know I’m not to be messed with but she took me in anyway.  She fostered me until MACC could take me in. 

Again, I was so scared at first they could only touch me with a spoon (peanut butter helped) but I warmed up after a few days and once I was up-to-date on vaccinations and they were able to get me neutered, Crossroads seemed like the perfect place.

Since I’ve been here, I have been a perfect gentleman.  I solicit attention, give kisses and love to jump up for affection.  I’m very interested in the other dogs but they are much bigger than me.  

I still get nervous once in a while, so it’s good to go slow when I’m getting to know you.   I’m happy to be off the “mean streets” and living the good life while I wait for my forever home.
