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

Arya – Adopted

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.

Chleo – Adopted

About Chleo

Hi world!  I’m Cleo and I am not ashamed to admit that I’m a pretty independent gal. 

Don’t be mistaken, though because I do love snuggling up close whenever I get the chance. I tend to be more on the timid side but that really isn’t my fault. 

My owner couldn’t keep me, so they left me at a veterinary office who contacted Crossroads. 

My foster mom says that once I open up, I’m full of energy, adventure, and lots of love!  Don’t worry about forgetting to feed me either – I am very vocal when it comes to my breakfast and dinner so I will always help remind you. I would prefer to be in a home where I am the only cat and can get spoiled with all of the attention.

I am about a year old, up-to-date on vaccinations, spayed and healthy as a….well, a healthy cat!   All I’m missing is my happily ever after family.  If you’re interested, just fill out the application!

 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!

Mango – Adopted

About Mango

Couldn’t we all use something a little tropic right now? 

Even if its just the name of a fruit, I’m happy to bring some color into your life (my photos just don’t do my brilliant orange coat the justice it deserves), help keep you warm (yes, I am a lap cat) or just keep you entertained.  How many shows can you actually binge watch?  And why would you when you’ve got someone like me around to play with, snuggle, and enjoy?  

I am about a year old, and was found outside by a very nice person who got me neutered and took care of me.  When I came to Crossroads, I was immediately friendly and am thrilled to be here while my forever family finds me.  

I’m healthy, love-able (I even give hugs, head bumps and kisses) and ready for my new home.  

What more could anyone want?

Baby Girl – Adopted

About Baby Girl

Small but mighty!  That’s my mantra.  

I’ve seen some tough times in my short life (I’m only about 2 years old) but I’m resilient!  My owner and I were homeless.  I really loved her, and she loved me but the best owners want what’s best for their pups so she felt that bringing me to a shelter where I can get medical care, good food and, eventually, an actual home was the right thing to do.  

Boy do I miss her, but I am being treated quite well here.  I have my own blankets, toys (mini tennis balls are THE BEST), food bowls and the interns even take me out to play! 

I move at lightning speed, and am a busy, active girl.  I’ve been eating 3x/day…they say I need the “groceries” and have put on a few pounds which is good for me.

I’m not a fan of the other dogs here though and I’m happy to tell them that!   I love to sing and make the greatest sounds…that must be due to my being a true Nashville Native!

Even though I didn’t really have a home, I do go potty outside only (unless the routine is off).  I’m pretty clean.  I’ve recently been spayed and am up-to-date on all of my vaccines.  

I’m super friendly and would love a home and family to call my own.

About Razz

Razzle Dazzle – Razzmatazz – all that Jazz, or just plain Razz!  

I am a super smart, high energy guy, but that doesn’t mean I don’t love some gentle pets and attention.  I’m a perfect medium size at about 35 lbs.

Most people don’t know what a Kelpie is…but I’m here to tell you!  We are a proud breed, similar to cattle dogs or Australian Shepherds. We try to see the future, or at least 3 steps ahead of a flock of sheep, a herd of cattle, or a family with children. (I would happily bark, yap and maybe even nip at fast moving little bodies, so the people at Crossroads think I’d be best without that kind of distraction.) 

I am particularly partial to feet and will do my best to try to keep you from leaving me when I want attention by nipping at your toes.   

I do love to spend time outside, but want to be with my people too.   I am very unsure around other dogs, so I hope to be your one and only. As a super smart dog, I do best with slow introductions to new people too.  

I would love long hikes, and would possibly take to frisbee, doggie soccer or even agility if you have the inclination!   Confinement isn’t really my forte, so an apartment or townhouse might not be the best placement for me as I do have an impressive bark.  The Crossroads staff says they are happy that I don’t choose to use it when I’m spending time with my people.

I have very thick (and super soft) fur, so petting me is just as good for the people as it is for me.  I am just over a year old, so still very open to learning. 

I’m pretty clean in my kennel, so house training should be a breeze.  I was recently neutered and am now up to date on all of my vaccinations.  All I need is the right family to find me.

Adoption fee is $150.

Cory – Adopted

About Cory

How might one even begin to describe me? 

Hmmmm – I am a young (2 yrs old) single male, seeking a long term relationship.   Soft, blonde hair, brown eyes, and a winning smile.  Attractive isn’t the right word, how about adorable? 

I love walks through the park, tennis (balls), and music of all kinds.  I am always up for a good time and will win over the hearts of your friends and acquaintances.  I am the kind of guy you can take home to your mother!

I was just neutered, so I tend to leave my mark once in a while, but I’ve heard tell that I’m getting better at that.  (Personally, I don’t see why it might be an issue, but hey – I’m open to change for the right person). 

I was found roaming and never reclaimed.  I was not a big fan of being poked and prodded when they got me up-to-date on vaccines, microchipped me, then put in a small kennel. 

My response showed them that I may not be a great fit for a home with  young children, but I might be interested in meeting them if they can respect my space.   

The people at Crossroads haven’t had any concerns and I love playing with all of them (even some of the other dogs have been kinda fun, but a slow intro is best for me).

If you think you’re ready for a long-term relationship with a guy like me, fill out the application.  I don’t plan to be here long!

About Foxy


Boy oh boy! What a big world this is turning out to be!

I thought life was all about my one person in my one house. I hadn’t ever really even been outside of my house at all except to take a walk in a fenced yard – and that happened so rarely that even doing that was scary. Imagine how I felt when my person wasn’t able to care for me any longer and they brought me to Crossroads.

The first few days were so scary – I showed my teeth to everyone and I barked so much I almost lost my voice. Well, now I feel bad because the people are so kind. I get to sit on laps all day, help them type on their computers, I get treats and good food and I even met another dog! I didn’t even know there were others like me – that was fun and I have made a few more friends since then.

While I’m still trying to figure this out, I hear these people say that I am resilient, sweet and quite the charmer.

I’m potty pad trained, but am learning to go outside now. My owner wasn’t sure of my age, so I might be nearly 10 years old. Don’t worry though, I have all the energy of a much younger dog and am in good health.

I hope for a family who can be patient and understanding of my very sheltered life because I’m ready to face the world (slowly), make new friends and share more love.

I’m just waiting for my shots (should I be scared?) and a heartworm test, then I’m all ready to face my brave new world!

About Neeka

My sister and I were found exploring the the Nashville area. Luckily, Crossroads was able to take us both and soon found my sister a great family. Now it’s my turn!

I’m currently about 10 months old and weigh 30 pounds.

Having been out in the world I know it can be a big, scary place sometimes. Because of this, I usually look to my human companion for direction, confidence, and treats!

I take great pleasure in seeing my handler happy and I’m eager to learn. The next step is to get into a home and a routine to really solidify my potty training and start the understanding of house training.

Not to worry though, I am fully vaccinated, spayed and microchipped!  I’m looking for a patient, encouraging family  and to spend the rest of my life seeing their happy faces.
