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 Animal Programs Director will go through them in the order in which they came 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

Our Adoptable Pets


About Arya

Much like my namesake I am an independent, curious young lady.   

I have been a well-loved family cat, but my owner was suddenly taken ill and is working hard to recover.  As hard as it was, she felt it would be best if I were in a home where I could be lavished with the attention and care I deserve.     

I love treats but can a bit picky on which ones…(a girl does  have to watch her figure).  I am talkative and will keep you well informed. I do like to play, but sometimes I get a little worked up, so a home with young children wouldn’t really suit me well.  While I was with a foster, I figured out how to open the bedroom door and showed them how much I love to jump and explore.   Because I am such a creature of habit and had so much stability in my early life, I will need some time and patience while I adjust to new people, places and things.  A slow introduction to a new home, a small and quiet safe space and maybe some cubbies/boxes or hidey-holes to call my own would be heavenly!  I do love it here at Crossroads, but would love even more to find my new family.  Do you have room in your heart for me?

I am about 4 years old, am spayed and up-to-date on all vaccines and am healthy as can be.

Morticia – Adopted

About Morticia

Some may think I’m intimidating, but that couldn’t be farther from the truth.  Just because I tend to be a bit aloof and like to spend time alone doesn’t mean I’m not just as fond of affection and some quiet lap time once in a while.   I had been an indoor/outdoor cat before and that didn’t bode well for me so I prefer to be an “IN” cat!   

My namesake, Morticia Addams, is a purrfect example of my personality;  The real head of the family:  low-voiced, incisive and subtle, smiles are rare, ruined beauty, contemptuous and original and with fierce family loyalty.

I tend to prefer solitude, but can you blame me?  I’ve had 3 kittens who were just so active!  I’m relishing a little time to myself now.

I am very clean with my litter box, I’m only occasionally chatty,  and quite witty.  I am up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed and ready for my new home.

 Jenna Maroney

About Jenna Maroney

“Listen up Fives, a Ten is speaking!” That’s right, I am all that – and more! My whole life is thunder and has been hard for quite some time, but I’m over that now.

I lived outside for years and a family had been watching over me.  After my third (or maybe fourth) litter of kittens, they decided to get me off the streets and find me a home through Crossroads. They were so kind to me that I have learned to do just about anything to get attention (and affection).

Having been on such a crazy diet my entire life, I will eat just about anything now and am loving it!  I have been introduced to dogs, not particularly a fan, but, if they ignore me I’m  content.  I like the company of other kitties but am not really interested in playing.

I’ve been fully vetted, am healthy, up-to-date, have now been spayed (no more kittens for me!) and am looking for someone to love me the way I do – just as I am!

About Buffy

Small but mighty!  That would be an appropriate description of me.  I may be tiny (but to be honest am “wider” than I should be) but I am confident, and loyal.  I will happily sleep away most of the day after a walk to get me moving.  I have no issues letting new people know how I feel about them.  I may begin a relationship with a few barks, but I nearly always follow through by making a new friend.

At 9 years old, I am a senior, but don’t let that scare you!  I’m healthy and happy and small dogs can often live 15+ years if kept in good health.  I know the ways of the world and where I’m supposed to go potty…outside…and have a calm, loving demeanor when I’m comfortable.

I had an owner for several years, so I’ve been spayed and have been kept up to date on my vaccinations, but the time came when they couldn’t care for me any longer.  I’m happy to be at Crossroads, but would really love a new home and family  (and maybe even another calm dog friend) to call my own.

Elmer – Adopted

About Elmer

Hey there!  Elmer here…I didn’t have a name when they found me locked in a crate in an abandoned apartment.  I was a little afraid of everyone at first, but once I know I can trust you, I’ll stick like glue – thus the name, Elmer.

I am a peppy, playful 2 year old little guy.  I love to sniff, chase, jump and play…I love other dogs and especially love attention from my people!   I’m very food motivated and will work hard for treats.  I should be an ace to train because I really just want to make you happy.   I look very much like a Jack Russell Terrier, and am pretty darn smart too.  I don’t bark much and would be happy with one walk a day (with appropriate potty breaks, of course).  Did I mention that I’m house trained???   Yuppers….house trained, quiet, playful, and snuggly.   You really couldn’t ask for much more, but the icing on the cake – I’m neutered, microchipped and up to date on all vaccinations too!   

If you are looking for a pet to form a “strong bond” with,  then get goin’ and fill out that application for Elmer!

Stryker – Adopted

About Stryker

“I may not be here for a long time but I definitely am here for a good time.” These are the words I live by everyday!

My name is Stryker and I’m about 2 years old, and am a recently neutered male. The people who found me and got me to Crossroads really enjoyed that I got along so well with their dogs. I’m pretty laid back until you pull out a tennis ball for some fetch, then, I become a speed racer!

My house training skills are almost perfect, though, I sometimes can’t resist making my mark on the world. Otherwise, I’d say I’m pretty close to perfect and ready to keep the good times rolling with a new family.

Adoption Fees

Adoption fee is $200.
