Hi, my name is Jasmine (at least that's what the nice people who found me & took me in call me). I am 5-6 years old, all white, & have beautiful light blue eyes.

Meet Tina, Harry, and Scott! These cuties are ready for their new families.

3 month old female domestic longhair / mix
Meet Charlotte! She would prefer a quiet home and would do best without children. She may be okay with other cats as she comes out of her shell with her brothers. She can be very shy at first but once you spend time with her she will stay curled up on your lap purring. Charlotte tested positive for Feline Immunodeficiency Virus (FIV); however, kittens may have false positive results until they are around 6 month of age. We recommend that Charlotte be re-tested at 6 months but we want any potential adopters to be aware of her test result. You can read more about FIV here: http://www.vet.cornell.edu/fhc/Health_Information/brochure_fiv.cfm

Meet Templeton! Templeton is a funny character. He tends to be a little shy at first but is tempted out of hiding by cat toys and other fast moving objects. He is pretty timid and afraid of children but with more time and patience may be ok. He would do best with another kitty companion as he follows everything Wilbur does, so must go with a sibling or to a home with an existing cat. Come meet him
11 month old male shepherd / mix in foster
Eli is a great young dog looking for an active family. He is an 'adventure dog' who thrives in exciting environments. He loves to go for hikes, play fetch and go for a swim (see video!). He knows several commands and is a people pleasure. He gets along well with other dogs and once he knows he can trust people, he warms up quickly. He is house trained and does great in the house. Because he can sometimes be nervous when meeting new people, we feel a home with older children (13+) or an adult only home would be best. Please email shelter@baypathhumane.org for more info!

If you think you have the patience to help Hannah Rose come out of her shell, come meet her today!

5 month old female domestic shorthair / mix
Hi, Im Dusty! My sister, Rusty, and I have been in foster for a couple months, and are now at the shelter ready for forever homes. When we first came in, we were really shy. But we are both much more comfortable now! We went to a foster home with 2 other more outgoing kittens, and they really helped teach us that people are nice. So, Rusty and I both need to find homes where we have a friendly cat to help us adjust. We are not a bonded pair, and will be happy in a home where we can have a kitty friend. Neither of us would do well in a home with kids, and would be happier in a quieter home with patient people. Although we still look scared at the shelter at first, when people give us some time we will warm up. We love to play with wand toys or balls or stuffed mousies, and you can pet us to your heart's desire as we eat. I am more shy than my sister, and I don't enjoy being picked up. But I will purr once you start petting me. I have a favorite footstool where sit and as long as you don't put your hand directly in my face, I'll let you pet me and I will purr away. And a couple of times recently, our foster dad actually picked me up and put me in his lap, and I stayed there for a while. So, please, when you see us at the shelter, consider us. We're really fun to play with, know how to use a scratch pad, and if you give us some time to get to know you, we will purr away for pets.

Although we still look scared at the shelter at first, when people give us some time we will warm up. I especially love to purr for people I know! We love to play with wand toys or balls or stuffed mousies, and you can pet us to your heart's desire as we eat. I even weave between your legs as you're getting my food ready and like being picked up and petted! My sister Dusty, who's more shy than I am, doesn't enjoy being picked up, but she will purr once you start petting her. She has a favorite footstool she sits on and as long as you don't put your hand directly in her face, she'll let you pet her and, from the purrs, I guess that deep down she really likes it. And a couple of times recently, our foster dad actually picked her up and put her in his lap! Imagine that! I've tried laps a few times and loved it, but I was so surprised to see her up there! So, please, when you see us at the shelter, consider us. We're really fun to play with, know how to use a scratch pad, and if you give us some time to get to know you, we will purr away for pets.
2 year old female domestic shorthair / mix
Ryu is a special girl. She has a history of litter box issues, so we are looking for a very special someone to give her a chance. She would do best as the only cat, and she needs a family who will be willing to be patient and try different things if the litter mistakes continue. She would do best in a quiet home, and although she has never been outdoors she may need to acclimate to being an in/out door cat or a barn cat if that helps with her litter habits. Please call the shelter to talk more about our girl Ryu! Ryu has gorgeous coloration and reminds us of an Abyssinian. She does like to purr and loves to be petted. Ryu is quite talkative and loves to play with any toys. She does well with other cats and cat friendly dogs. At times she is fearful so would prefer a quiet household. Ryu can be stressed easily and will pull her fur out at times. She is a lap cat and will sometimes let you pick her up. Ryu needs a home that will be patient with her and understand she will take time to adjust to everyone in the household. *She is still getting adjusted to shelter lifestyle, please call to see how she is doing. Please come meet her today!

6 year old male chihuahua, short coat / mix in foster
Rascal is a happy little guy who's super playful. He's a social boy who will do best with another dog companion. He likes dogs big & small. He also likes to be close to his people and to curl up under the covers. He's a great walker who loves to go for long hikes or to zip around in the yard. He jumps for joy when you take out his leash to go out. His favorite thing is to run around the yard. He could play fetch for ages! He loves his doughnut toy and any toy that squeaks, and will happily throw them up in the air. Rascal is house trained and is very well behaved. He likes to chill out on the sofa next to you, and will be extra happy if he can snuggle up with you in bed at night. He has had seizures, but fortunately they're managed as long as he has takes his medication twice a day. He'll do best in a home with a fenced yard or a quiet place to walk. We think he'd do great with another good-natured dog. He seems much more contented and happy around other dogs. However, he can't live with a cat. Like many chihuahuas, he's a bit nervous around young children so he needs a home with older, dog savvy children or adults. He's currently in a temporary foster home until he finds his forever home. Please contact baypathleslie@gmail.com or 508-904-4967 to learn more about Rascal today!
3 year old male coonhound / mix in foster
Meet this awesome boy Topper! He is a big boy and can be a love with patience. He's looking for a quiet home where he can have a peaceful life. Topper is the cutest boy; he absolutely loves to play the chase game and will play bow his human friends. He also loves squeaky toys and will throw them in the air by himself. Here is a great update from his foster family: 'Topper adjusted to his new environment (big back yard with some woods...not too bad to take for a hunting dog) in just a few days. He is very affectionate with me; probably because he knows I will be there to give him those long walks he so enjoys. To get my attention he will use his paw to "touch" me...although he doesn't realize his touch is a little strong or he will come up to me and lean into me devouring all of the attention I am so readily willing to give. He so enjoys human attention but also displays independent tendencies. He is a hound through and through..enjoying the game of searching for the neighborhood foxes when we are out walking. Fortunately we have options on which road to take so he can be diverted before he goes into full out hunting mode. We have had a puppy visitor a few times and they adjusted to each other pretty well, but I think he would be best suited with a household without other animals. He is a loveable dog who wants a human to love him!'
2 year old male terrier, american pit bull / mix in foster
Bryson is a dog like no other! He may look like a big lug (and he is) but he's also super athletic, and loves everything from swimming to frisbee. Throw a tennis ball and he'll go airbound for it! This boy has an unmatched exuberance for life! If you want a dog who'll keep up with your every move on the go, Bryson may be your guy! He already knows sit, down, drop it, wait, touch, and let's go, and is working hard to learn new things so he can find a home of his very own. He also keeps his kennel clean at the shelter. Bryson likes to get in the car and go places. He's got a lot of energy, so needs someone who can ensure he gets plenty of exercise and positive reinforce. He'll do best as a solo pet in a home with adults, with a big fenced yard to romp around in. Call us today to learn about this larger than life boy!
3 year old male coonhound, redbone / mix in foster
Hi, I'm Tater Tot! I'm happiest when close to people. I also love to run and play with other dogs. Being out in a fenced yard would be awesome! My human friends say I'm good on walks-I love checking out the neighborhood! I'm polite, rarely bark, and am already housebroken. Because of my good behavior, I have the run of the house with my foster parents. I like when they come home and tell me what a good boy I am! I need my forever home to be a calm, adult only place where there is no pressure from lots of noise or kids. Although I love to chill out, I can be very timid around new things like walking through doorways, seeing reflections from TVs and skylights. I just need someone loving and patient who'll give me the time to get to know the lay of the land. Love, Tater Tot
11 month old male terrier / mix in foster
Fraggle is a two-year-old terrier mix whose adorable face and winsome personality will win your heart. He might look like a Wheaten Terrier, but he is a mix breed and is probably not hypoallergenic. According to his foster family, he loves to play, especially with his ball, but is also just as happy to sit quietly by your feet while you're busy with other things. He also loves to go for walks in areas where it's quiet and he isn't worried about lots of people and other dogs. Like many adolescent dogs, Fraggle can be anxious when strangers come in to the house or come too close to him too quickly when outside. His foster mom has been working on this with him and he is definitely making steps towards becoming more confident. He can also be reactive to other dogs when on leash, but is learning to be comfortable with another family dog. However he does not want to live with another dog. CHILDREN: Fraggle will do best in a quiet home without the flurry of activity that goes along with children. DOGS: As Fraggle is anxious around other dogs, he will do best as an only dog. CATS: No. HOUSETRAINING: Is both housetrained and crate-trained. Fraggle would not be suitable for an apartment life style. TRAINING: Fraggle is easy to walk on leash and responds to cues for sit, down, paw, wait and "watch me" (especially if he knows there are cookies nearby). He loves to train and is able to learn new behaviors very quickly. As he is still working on his reactivity to other dogs and strangers, his training can easily be done at home with great success. He will also do best in a home with a fenced-in yard so that he can burn off some of his energy without the worry of strange dogs or people approaching him. Positive reinforcement is the way to help this boy achieve his potential as a great companion!
12 year old male norwegian forest / mix in foster
Meet Artie! Artie is between 10-12 years old and is a domestic long-haired white cat with one green eye and one blue eye and a cauliflower ear adding extra character. Artie is a big beautiful boy with an adorable personality. He will continuously make you laugh. For example, when Artie feels lonely and wants to find his human he will meow (quite loudly as he is hard of hearing); however his meow literally sounds like he is saying, "helloooo". Another cute trait is that Artie loves to be vacuumed! When he sees the vacuum wand come out Artie will be quite obnoxious until he gets his vacuum massage. Artie loves to play. His favorite toys are feather wands and chasing laser lights. Artie loves to be brushed before bedtime and will purr quite loudly and shower you with kisses. Artie's favorite places to sleep are his small dog bed and the cat tower by the window. Artie can become stressed if he feels threatened. As a result he must be in a home with no young children or other animals. Artie also gets very stressed at the vet's office and is difficult to exam; therefore it is recommended to find a vet that does house visits. Artie has a slight heart murmur, common for older cats, and a cauliflower ear that needs cleaning on occasion, but otherwise is in great health. Artie is currently in foster care. Please email Nikki at baypathnikki@gmail.com to make an appointment to meet Artie today!

Looking for that perfect dog? Well keep looking, because I am NOT your man! It's true! Your kids can't sit on my head or dress me up and wheel me around in a wagon, there won't be any cute selfies of us sharing a slice of pizza and I definitely won't be cuddled up next to you in bed! In fact, I have to be honest with you...after having been bounced around to a number of places over the last year or so, I'm at the point where I've gotten pretty darn picky about who I'm going to be heading home with. One-nighters with people who fall in love with my smiling face but don't want to take the time to get to know the real me behind the irresistible grin just aren't cutting it any more. So let's be honest here. If this is going to work for the both of us, there are some things you need to know about me. Don't worry, I won't judge your stuff if you don't judge mine! I'm generally a pretty happy guy but like that certain friend everybody has, I can be a little bit...quirky. In fact Liz, the Shelter Director, calls me "crazy pants." What? I think it's cute! The Bad and The Ugly...Let's start with the bad and ugly first. I don't like sharing my food. Be honest with me here. Do you really want someone reaching over and grabbing your last French fry? Right...me neither! I just need a little space if I'm going to be able to enjoy my meal. Being up on the furniture...not a good look for me. Remember when you were little and your brother wanted the whole couch to himself and he pushed you on the floor when your mom wasn't looking? Yeah, I admit it, I'm that guy. My foster mom Terry (who is the most awesome person!) says I am happier on the floor or on my own bed or in my crate. And she's right...I mean really, we all know I'm a dog right? The floor's A-okay with me! And last, but not least, I'm a bit of a freaky sleeper. Startle me when I'm sleeping and I come up swinging! Dude, I need my beauty sleep to be uninterrupted! You think these good looks are easy to maintain? Just give me a heads up, call my name when you're coming and it'll be just fine. So, still on board? Great! Finally! On to the good stuff! As I said earlier, the aforementioned exceptions not withstanding, I'm a pretty happy guy. Other dogs? Love 'em! Nothing like a little four-legged companionship to make a guy feel complete. You know what I mean...talking to me all day might be fun, but sometimes don't you just want a conversation where somebody speaks your language? Me too! Kitty in the house? Meow baby - I can speak that language all day long! However, if you don't have a live-in friend for me, no worries, I promise it's not a deal-breaker. Wheels! I love 'em! Car, truck, motorcycle side-car...man, I'd live on the road if I could! Anywhere you want to go, I'm the co-pilot for you! Balls? Sticks? An old boot? I'm your boy! You throw it, I'll bring it back. And my favorite thing? Food! My foster mom says I am super food-motivated and easy to train. I have no idea what that means, but you bring the cookies and I'll do the dancing! Oh, and I never "go" in the house. Yay me! So what do I really need? Patience, time, understanding, some training (honestly, can't we all improve just a little bit more?), no kids (man, they kind of freak me out a bit), basically a family of one or more who gets my weirdness and embraces it. I think Dr. Seuss said it best; "We are all a little weird, and life's a little weird, and when we find someone whose weirdness is compatible with ours, we join up with them and fall in mutual weirdness and call it love." So what do you think? Want to get weird together? If you think you can handle it, give the shelter a call and maybe we can meet and split some fries (on our own plates of course!) ***Thanks to a Petco Foundation grant, Baypath will be sponsoring a training class for his lucky new family!
1 year 11 month old female retriever, labrador / mix in foster
Cora is one energetic young dog who would make a fantastic running partner. She loves to be on-the-go with her people or to get out and play with other dogs. She & her pal Ernie here at the shelter occupy themselves playing for hours! She gets along well with young, energetic dogs. Cora is super smart and would excel in an environment where she can gets plenty of physical and mental exercise. She's enrolled in obedience training and is impressing everyone with her abilities. She's a quick study & is already picking up many commands. She also has a playful side, and loves toys and goofing around. Cora has also been a great pal on the road. She's calm in the car & is happy to ride along with you. She needs an adult home, ideally with an experienced owner who understands the value of positive reinforcement for a young dog.
