Our Adoptable Pets

If you’re looking for a loyal, loving life-companion who will always be happy to see you, consider adopting a pet! Here at Crossroads Campus, we pull dogs and cats of all breeds, sizes, and ages from our partner, Metro Animal Care and Control. 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 at our Crossroads Pets- Shop & Adopt, Pet Retail Store.

About Chester

Nobody knows the troubles I’ve seen, nobody knows what I am!   I’m a “big” dog (in body), but I’m a small dog (in legs).  I have some Cattle Dog  markings, but a Basset Hound shape.  My head says I might be a Labrador, my coloring might lead some to think I’m a beagle.  I am Chester and all you really need to know is that I am adorable!  

I am super playful with blankets and like to tug, but don’t really know what toys are.  I can be nervous in new surroundings, but also LOVE to have hands on me.  Despite my low rider status, I have a fantastic vertical jump.  Unfortunately, I was given up when I jumped on someone and scratched them, so I am told I should work on my manners. 

I am neutered, up to date on vaccinations and  microchipped.  The people at Crossroads are still getting to know me, but think I’ll make a great pet for someone.   Could that be you?

Adoption Fees

Adoption fee is $125.

Shimmer – Adopted

About Shimmer

My name is Shimmer and I am ready for my turn to SHINE!

My mom was a boxer who was dumped in the country when she was pregnant and some very nice people took care of her.  I had 2 brothers who found homes too.  I had a family.  I heard the word divorce a lot, then spent most of my days living outside. 

My dad didn’t think that was a good life for me, so he brought me to a shelter so I could go to Crossroads.  At first I was so sad to not be with my dad, but after a few days I realized that the interns are taking great care of me and I’ve become quite spunky and playful.  I love other dogs (unless food is around) but new people are still kinda scary.

I am 10 months old, (still kind of a teenager) almost fully grown at 32 lbs and would love to learn what the world has to offer!  I’m up to date on vaccinations, spayed, microchipped and I’m now looking forward to a future with a new family.

Adoption Fees

Adoption fee is $150.

JoJo – in foster

About JoJo

I’m a tiny little thing and think the world is big and scary…I’m happy that the kind people at Crossroads are teaching me otherwise, but children are terrifying.

I was found all by myself in the big world where my only companions were fleas.  When the Animal Control Officer found me,  I was terrified and growled a lot.  I tried to show my teeth (but I don’t have many left).  I was overwhelmed in the big shelter, but here at Crossroads, I’m feeling better.  I’m still nervous with new people, but the few I’ve chosen say I’m quite sweet and loving.  I love their laps and snuggling into my little bed (when it’s on the desk top so I can see my person, it’s even better!)

I’m only 11 pounds, love string cheese, am spayed, up to date with vaccines. I’ve been microchipped and my flea friends are all gone.  I would love for my forever family to find me soon and let me choose them as my new people.  Could it be you?

About Loretta

I’m Loretta.  I’ve lived the shelter life for way too long.  Crossroads took me in when they realized that even though I’m social, friendly and affectionate, I was the longest term resident in the cat room at Metro Animal Control.  Nobody really understands why, I mean, I get along fine with other feline friends, I might even appreciate a respectable dog.  I do like things on my own terms, but hey, a girl should be able to speak her mind once in a while.  

If I do say so myself, I’m really quite attractive (the vet says my eyes are the most incredible shade of green and they especially like that I’m an easy patient who goes into a carrier all on my own).          

I am spayed, microchipped, healthy and up to date with vaccinations and that means it’s time for me to finally find my furever family.

Adoption Fees

Adoption fee is $150.

Of course the best way to know if a pet is the right fit for you is to meet him or her. If you see a dog or cat that you’d like to meet, stop by our Crossroads Pets – Shop & Adopt Retail Store at 707 Monroe Street in Germantown!
