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.   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 children wouldn’t really suit me well.  And, I really need to be the only cat. 

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. 

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

Adoption Fees

Adoption fee is $90.

Addie – Adopted

About Addie

If you look up my name, you’ll find something along the lines of, “Old-fashioned nickname with sweet turn-of-the-last-century charm.”  The people at Crossroads think that suits me perfectly. 

I was found as a stray with my friend, Arlo.  We waited for our people to come find us, but they never did, so now I’m looking for my next family who will love me forever.   I’m about 2 years old, so I have a long life ahead of me.  

I have been very quiet in my kennel and keep it very clean.  I’m house trained, spayed and up-to-date on all my shots.  They noticed that  my rear end doesn’t match up so I’m going to a vet soon to see if they can fix me.  Really though, even if I’m a bit crooked, I’m still a very sweet girl.  You might say I’m perfectly imperfect.

Adoption Fees

Adoption fee is $150.

Arlo – Adopted

About Arlo

I am dachshund through and through! 

I am solid, sturdy, strong and determined….but don’t let that scare you.  I’m really a sweet guy, about 3 years old and really just want to be loved. 

I was found with my friend Addie and they think we lived together, but we don’t need to stay together.  

I would love a place where I can go out and sniff and dig all day, then come in for some snuggles.  

I’m recently neutered and have been microchipped and vaccinated.  I’m ready for a new home – are you ready for me?

About Cheo

If there is a contest for best underbite, I am certainly a contender.  Can you not tell by my deliciousness that I am a force of nature?  I have had 6 years to find my stride and I’m living the high life now.

I hail from Puerto Rico where I was found working my way around town, then brought here by Nashville Humane Association.  NHA felt I might do best in an environment where people could relate to me and all of my chihuahua perfection, so here I am at Crossroads for the time being.  

While I may only be 8 pounds, I am a big personality and have no issues letting people know just who I am and what I’m all about.  Children are not “my thing” and I will protect my food from another dog (well, and my humans if I feel the need) so someone savvy to my ways will be important for our success.

I would love to have a home of my own to strut around in.   Can you handle this Cheo?

Adoption Fees

Adoption fee is $100.

Gordy – Adopted

About Gordy

Phew!  That was RUFF!  I was out and about and all of a sudden, I had no idea where I was! 

My people must have gotten lost. They still haven’t found me so I came to Crossroads. 

I have a soft, shiny coat and a little nub of a tail much like an Australian Shepherd, but I’m only 15 pounds.  They say I’m a real looker but I’m a bit self-conscious and can still be a little nervous. 

I’m about 5 years old, so I’m mature, but young at heart.  I was just neutered, so I may not be feeling like myself and would love a home to call my own and some new people to love me.

Adoption Fees

Adoption fee is $150.

Hardy – Adopted

About Hardy

Hardy can mean a lot of things.  It can mean robust…capable of enduring difficult situations.  It can also be comical as in “hardy, har, har”, or it is sometimes confused with “hearty”.  All of those things apply to me!   

I was found running loose out near Pet Community Center, which happens to be a partner of Crossroads and Metro Animal Control. So when MACC brought me in and weren’t able to find an owner it just seemed to be fate that I would come to Crossroads.  I am also a little nervous when meeting new people, so it’s a good thing I’m here to build my confidence.  

I don’t like to be left alone for long periods of time, but I DO love to play and snuggle.  

I’m about 2 years old, so fully grown at 18 pounds.  I am neutered, microchipped, up-to-date on vaccinations and even house trained!!   All I need is an owner who is willing to share their heart with me.  

Adoption Fees

Adoption fee is $125.

Leo – Adoption pending

About Leo

Little Lion…that’s me, but I’m not big on the “rawr” part.  I just happen to be the same color and have a little “fluff” around my face, but those are the only similarities. 

I was picked up as a stray and have been very scared in these new places.  I prefer to just spend my time curled up in a cozy lap or giving gentle kisses.  

They say I am around 5 years old, but I look like a perpetual puppy.  I was just neutered (and not very happy about it yet) and am now up-to-date on all my vaccinations.  I even have a microchip.  

I would love a quiet home with someone who just wants a snuggly little companion (and who likes dog kisses).  Is that you?

Adoption fee is $150.

Piper – Adopted

About Piper

A photo may be worth a thousand words, but how about this face?

My name is Piper and I’m about as sweet as they come! I seem to like other dogs who give me a little space when we first meet.  I can be a bit unsure, but if you show me the way, I’m certain to become near a near perfect pup.

Right now, I am about 27 lbs, but my friends here at Crossroads tell me I’ll probably grow into my feet, so I will likely grow to be a big girl.

I was picked up as a stray by Metro Animal Care & Control. My family never came for me, but I probably had one because I’m quite well mannered for such a young pup.

I try to keep my kennel clean.  Once in a while I have accidents if they can’t take me out in time, but  I am nearly house trained.

I’ve already been spayed, am up to date on my vaccinations and just need a loving place to call home and a family who will love and care for me the way I deserve.

Adoption Fees

Adoption fee is $200.
