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 – Pending

Razz

Gender: Neutered Male

Age:   2 years

Adoption fee: $150  

About Razz

AT LAST! They have finally figured me out!  The Crossroads team was so invested in my personality as a CATTLE dog, that they missed out on my true self which is more like a CATtle dog.   

They called me anxious…that’s true – but only during times of uncertainty and transition (like most cats).  I love snuggles and attention…on my own terms (like most cats). 

I can be choosy about my people (like most cats), and if things don’t go my way I can often act like a diva before eating a Snickers bar.  Do you see where this is going here?   I’m a 35lb, low-riding, often persnickety dog who acts much like a cat!  

On any given day, I will likely display all 5 types of cat personality:  

1. Neuroticism (I have a hard time with new situations/people), 

2. Impulsiveness (with a high distractibility factor), 

3. Extraversion (I am highly active, curious and ridiculously smart),  

4. Agreeableness (once I know my place/people, I am quite affectionate), 

5. Dominance (don’t take this the wrong way – dominance in dog language is a myth – but I can be quite jealous and may come off as fickle if I don’t get my way).

I love small, fast-moving toys that squeak.  I keep myself clean and I’m happy to stay to myself.  Give me a comfy bed/blanket and a chew toy and I will be content to find a sunny spot in which to nap throughout the day. 

I am species neutral (I get along with dogs and cats with appropriate introductions), neutered, up-to-date, microchipped and once I’m comfortable I am a sweet, snuggly guy who just wants a home/person to call my own.

Teddy

Teddy

Gender: Male

Age:   2 years

Adoption fee: $250  

About Teddy

Teddy – soft, sweet, cuddly, with a dash of spunk…that’s me!   

I am sweet, a little nervous at times, but I put on a big show when that happens.  Someone realized they couldn’t care for me any longer and left me tied to a fence at Metro Animal Control. 

Nobody should be mad though, cuz my people tried to take care of me.  I was healthy and clean and clearly loved my people.  The new place was a bit overwhelming so I came to Crossroads where it’s much quieter.  I’ve made many new friends – some two-legged, some four.  

I really hate to be left alone, but maybe you can understand why.  

I would love a quiet-ish home where my people can spend a good part of the day with me. 

I am up to date on vaccinations and I didn’t realize I was broken, but they say I can go home once I’m fixed and chipped.  I have an appointment soon, then I’ll be ready for you. 

Are you ready for me?  If so, please complete the application so I can start my happily ever after.  

Zena

Zena

Gender:  Female

Age:   3.5 years

Adoption fee: $200  

About Zena

Xena, Warrior Princess!!  That’s some other girl – I’m Zena with a “Z”!    Ziptastic, Zoolicious, Zapnado, Zena! 

I love life (even though it’s scary sometimes!!)   I was pulled from my home because I hadn’t been very well cared for, but I didn’t know that.  I just know that it was hard and sad, and I was scared. 

The shelter that picked me up had met me before and this time they fell in love with me but soon realized that I was not adjusting well.  I had lived pretty much alone for my almost 4 years and was afraid of all the noise and didn’t understand why there were so many different people all the time. 

Well, they called Crossroads who came and swept me off my feet (almost literally, but there was a kennel involved and some leash thing…)  That’s neither here nor there, but now I’m actually here and can show them what a happy, “zippity-do-da”  type of Zena I really am!   

I love other dogs (but that’s why they call me Zapnado…I can be a bit much). I appreciate a slow intro and quiet voices. 

I’m house-trained, energetic and loving.  I could use some training, but I’m also already spayed, up-to-date on vaccinations, microchipped and I am one smart cookie who wants to learn with you! 

Are you ready to add a little zest to your life?  Then apply for me today and let’s do this thing called life together!

Ellie

Ellie

Gender: Female spayed

Age:  7 years

Adoption fee:  $100 

About Ellie

Big lady with a big personality!

I came to Crossroads seeming to be scared and antisocial. This couldn’t be further from the truth!  

During my stay here they have worked on shedding some of my weight so I got my living space upgraded to the administrative office.  (Don’t worry, I won’t lose my authoritative airs as I continue to slender down.)

Once I moved to the office, I got to spread my love and my fur to everyone I met!

Crossroads quickly realized that, while I enjoy humans, I really don’t enjoy the company of other felines so it would be best that I go to a home as an only child.

If you have space in your heart from this large and in charge lady, apply for me today!
