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.

Kora

About Kora

The great outdoors!!!   My favorite place (but safely secured in a yard).  I love to spend my days playing frisbee, digging for treasure, zooming around or chewing on any multitude of toys. 

Sometimes I have to be reminded of the things that are NOT toys, but I am easily redirected with puzzles, Kong toys, licky mats…oh – all the flavors and smells!!

I was originally found with my littermate Neeka who has been adopted already.  I’m about a year old, 30-ish pounds, up-to-date on vaccinates, spayed, healthy and even microchipped!  

I’ve been spending time in a wonderful home learning that the world is not so scary.  I am learning to appreciate walks (those used to be terrifying, so quiet areas are still best for me), I am fully house and crate trained, friendly to new people and am working on being more comfortable with other friendly, social dogs (a companion in a new home to show me the ropes might be just perfect). 

I’m a little confused by the small humans and have been known to use my “big girl bark” when things get too chaotic and my anxiety takes over (same with vacuums, brooms, rakes, etc).  I LOVE people and all the attention they lavish on me and in turn, they often mention how soft my fur is.   

If you are looking for a companion, have a quiet-ish lifestyle, and love to spend time outdoors, I’m your girl!   

I am still in my foster home, so please apply to set up a time to meet me!

Jenna – Pending

About Jenna
Here I go again!   This isn’t my first rodeo; I’ve been at Crossroads before.
 
I found my first home in 2018 but, unfortunately, my owner became ill and took me to Metro.  I went to a foster home where they said I was wonderful, but “not a guard dog.” They complained that I didn’t bark enough!  Can you imagine?   Well, then I went to a new family with young children who let me run around outside and let’s just say I found my bark!
 
I am not fond of other dogs and I have not been leash trained, so I pull and pull!  The team at Crossroads is going to work on that, but they feel that if I have a fenced in yard I would love to run, jump, chase balls (and maybe the occasional squirrel) and just play with my humans. 
 
We don’t know what my breed is.  I look like a Labrador, but a miniature version (I’m perfectly sized at only 30lbs).  Don’t let my “sugar face” fool you!  At about 5 years old, I have plenty of energy to spend in a yard, going for a run, maybe a hike and I should mention, I have a pretty awesome vertical jump! 
 
I’m healthy, up to date on vaccinations and spayed.  I would love an active home with someone who wants to put a little time into me and help me be the best dog I can be!  I hope you’ll apply to be my person.

Steven – Adopted!

About Steven

My name is Steven and I love to entertain! 

I may not be a singer songwriter like Steven Tyler, but I sure can Dream On! like he does.  I’m dreaming of my family right now.   

Unfortunately, I got out and my people never found me so here I am at Crossroads.  The staff loves my fun personality…I make them laugh and that sound makes me happy. 

I’m about 2 years old and full of life, love and energy.  I can be picky about my treats, but once we find the right one, my training sessions go really well.  I’m a smart little guy (12 pounds), but I’ve got plenty of spunk!

I keep a very clean kennel, so I seem to be potty-trained and I’m fully vaccinated and will soon be neutered (so I won’t mark in my new person’s house!).  I do that sometimes but the staff & interns usually distract me so I can go outside. 

All I need now is to make like E.T. (directed by another famous Steven) and “go home.”  If you are looking for a little spark plug to keep you laughing and loving life, I may be your guy!  Fill out the application if you want to come meet me!

Nova – Pending

About Nova

I am Nova – hear me meow!

I’ve got it all.  If you are looking for a small package with a big impact, I’m your girl.  I love to play, pounce, hop, jump, stalk, purr….I LOVE to purr! 

I’m about 7 months old and was originally found by a nice lady when she heard my cries during a driving rain. (She couldn’t believe that sound could come from such a tiny body. I am vocal when I want to be).

She brought me to Crossroads where they made sure I got all of my vaccinations, I spent a few months in a foster home and I am now microchipped, spayed and ready for a forever family.  

I’m a little unsure about other pets (I mean, when you’ve got the whole package, who needs more??) and I love kids (as long as they respect me when I’m ready to be done with play).  I am great with my litter box and will sing, chirp, meow and keep you well entertained.

Adoption fee is $125.

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!

Adoption Fees

Adoption fee is $100.
