Our Adoptable Pets
It’s been a hard knock life for me. I was spotted running and eluded capture for several months. When they finally caught me, I had a metal ring around my neck that was embedded into my skin. I was sick, scared, in pain, and very shut down. Crossroads saw me and the deal was sealed…my “ruff” days are behind me.
I’m staying in a foster home where they call me Shorty (trying to remind themselves that I’m only here for a short time). I’ve become very attached to my new dog friend, but am still a little leery of the humans. My foster mom says they just need to take it slow…and I love her for it. They say I’m a foodie and am now a healthy weight and my wounds are healed. They are thrilled that I am house trained! I’m very curious, but can be nervous with new things. I love chew toys, bones and tugs, but mostly just love to play!
I’m about 2 years old, and perfect at under 40 pounds. I am neutered, fully vaccinated, microchipped and would love a forever home (a dog friend would be a huge bonus). I’m ready to put the past behind me. Can I do it with you?
Adoption fee is $150.
Wendell – Adopted
Zip-a-dee-doo-dah, zip-a-dee-ay. My, oh, my, what a wonderful day!
Hi! I’m Wendell and today I was pulled from a large Animal Control facility and taken to Crossroads. I’m a happy-go-lucky guy who loves life. No one appreciates a rousing game of fetch more than I do, but unfortunately, that’s why I ended up in a shelter. Sometimes I get so excited when grabbing a ball, that I don’t notice there might be a hand in the way.
I’m sweet as honey and as smart as they come. I already know sit & lay down, I seem to be crate trained and did I mention that I’m a champion at fetch? I’m young too, about 10 months old, so I have a lot to learn still but I’m just about full grown at around 60lbs. I’ve been neutered, am up to date on all my vaccinations and microchipped.
I know there’s plenty of sunshine headed my way, I just wonder if you’ll be the one with me for these beautiful days.

It’s a scary time in America right now, but I’m here to remind the world that there is hope. You see, I’ve lived my entire life (10 years or more) in a horrible situation. I didn’t get proper nutrition, medical care, or even access to go outside. I was “impounded” as a cruelty case. That might sound bad to you, but that was the best day of my life.
After a quick once-over at the shelter, I came to Crossroads. I smelled terrible, I had patches of missing hair, I itched all over to the point of making myself bleed, and I could barely stand for more than a few seconds at a time.
Here’s where HOPE comes in to play. People thought I was on my last legs and just wanted to find a comfortable place to live out my days. Since coming to my foster home, I am now clean, I’m getting proper nutrition, my itching has nearly stopped, my fur has started growing in, and I LOVE going for walks and exploring the neighborhood! I feel like a new (old) dog!!
I do well with other dogs and am house trained. I am most happy when I can lie down near an AC vent and take a nap. I am spayed, up to date on all vaccinations and every day seems to bring me more promise. I may be a senior, but I know my best days are ahead of me! Will you be the one I spend them with?
Adoption fee is $100.
Paris – Adopted
If a name can affect personality, I am a purr-fect example. I am elegant and like to take my time and observe before venturing too much, but once I’m comfortable, I can’t wait to explore. Like a typical Parisian, I won’t eat just anything. I am a bit finicky, so could stand to gain a little weight.
I enjoy my time lounging on a sunny windowsill watching the birds and squirrels go by and love to snuggle with my companion, Valentine.
I am 3 years old, up to date on vaccinations, spayed and have a microchip. All I need is a forever family to call my own.

Valentine – Adopted
All I need is love, thus the name Valentine. I won’t give my heart to just anyone though. It’s been broken before, so I take my time warming up. When I do, it is well worth the time and effort to gain my trust.
My favorite pastime is drinking from the faucet! I also enjoy sitting in a sunny windowsill with my bestie, Paris. We can spend hours watching the wildlife. We are both very calm kitties who are well behaved.
I am also about 3 years old, up to date on vaccinations, spayed, microchipped and ready for a new family. I hope you’ll come to meet me soon!

Kit – Adopted
I am a bit of a mystery – nobody knows where I come from or what I’ve seen, but I’m ready for a new life. I came to Metro Animal Care & Control and was nervous and shy. My foster home has dogs – I like them and they are very respectful, but I keep a little distance. It took me a week or so to get comfortable enough to explore this new place, but now I venture out more and am getting to know the people and find them to be interesting and am starting to appreciate the occasional snuggle.
I am just over a year old, vaccinated and microchipped. I still need to be spayed but am waiting for MACC to re-open for surgery. I’d love to stay with someone as a foster so we can get to know each other then make it my forever home. Are you up for it?
Adoption fee is $90.
You love animals and refuse to let them suffer abandonment and neglect.
