6 year old male chihuahua, short coat / mix in foster
Rascal is an amusing little fellow with a funny underbite. He's super playful, and loves his doughnut toy and any toy that squeaks. He's a great little walker. He's a bit slow going up and down stairs when he first wakes up, but when he gets outdoors, he loves to go for long walks or to zip around in the yard. He's surprisingly fast! He's a social boy who would do great with another doggie companion. He also seems fine with cats. He very much wants to be close to his people and to curl up under the covers. Rascal doesn't like to be picked up, but will happily jump up on the sofa to snuggle with you. Like many chihuahuas, he's a bit of a growly pants around young children so he needs to be in a home with teens or adults. He's house trained and is very well behaved. Once he's had a good walk, he's happy to chill out. Rascal has had seizures, but fortunately they're manageable as long as he has takes his medication twice a day. 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.

This little petite girl has a lot of spunk! Gretta is adorable and has incredible markings. She is true to the calico that if she doesn't like what is going on, she will be sure to let you know. Gretta loves under her chin rubbed and will rub against you for pets. Toy mice and wand toys are a few of her favorite toys but does enjoy playing in boxes as well. Gretta seems to not get along with other cats and very scared of dogs; because of her personality we would prefer a home with no children or older children that understand she may scratch. Please call to find out more.

Hi! My name is Fran! I was transferred here to Baypath from another rescue, and moving is never easy. I am still coming out of my shell here and am getting used to all the people.

I also like to sometimes stick out my tongue when I am getting lots of attention, it is just a funny quirk of mine! The staff members are still getting to know me, but from what I hear, I think they like me a lot. Come visit me to see if you like me too!!

Carver was found as a stray and is ready for his forever home. This guy is about as friendly as they come! His favorite thing to do is rub on your face! He also likes to sit on your shoulders while he does it! He is quit amusing and he is super talkative. When volunteers are cleaning the cat room, he follows them around like a dog. If you sit on the floor, it is guaranteed that he will be in your lap almost instantly! Carver is a staff favorite and would make a great cat! He does not seem to get along well with other male cats, and also no dogs please! Carver tested positive for FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus), but that isn't holding him back!

2 year old male terrier, american pit bull / mix in foster
Bryson is a hunk of burning love!!! Once you meet this handsome king-sized gentleman, you will not be able to resist his charm! He is still learning manners and can be exuberant at times, so therefore we are recommending a household with teens or older. He loves other dogs...a little too much! He can be very excitable around other dogs and his size may be a little too much for other dogs, so it may be best for Bryson to be the only dog in the household. Bryson says no thank you to cats! If you are into positive reinforcement training and then enjoying a well-earned cuddle on the couch after, Bryson is your new best friend!
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. I'm at the shelter this week so please come by and meet me! Love, Tater Tot
13 year old male coonhound / mix in foster
Meet this awesome senior! Titus is looking for his forever home when he can live in the lap of luxury and have no worries for the rest of his days. He's currently in a foster home, and his foster family say he's a friendly boy who wags his tail at everyone he meets. He enjoys walks once he gets going and loves the car too, he just needs a little help getting in and out. He could stand to lose a few pounds, but is absolutely in love with treats. He would prefer to be the only dog in a home with older children or adults. We think he'll do fine with cats. Please call us at 508-435-6938 or email adopt@baypathhumane.org for more info about this terrific dog!

11 month old male domestic shorthair / mix
My name is Cantaloupe! I have a very big head (literally), hence my perfect name. I was found as a stray, but I belong in a home and I am ready for a home to call my own. I am big, but if you walk in the room and hear little chirp sounds, that's me! I am very talkative and all the staff members say I make the cutest little sounds! I just want to be friends with ALL the cats in the whole world, even if they don't necessarily want to be friends with me, I'll still try! I have become best buds with Baby Beth. We balance each other out cause she's so small and I'm so big. It would be awesome to go to a home with her, but I don't have to, I suppose. I am not a fan of dogs, and I think that I would probably like kids if they were 10 years and older, because I can get testy when people touch me on my belly! Please come in to visit me today! Cantaloupe has tested positive for FIV, which means he has a compromised immune system. Please read more at http://consciouscat.net/2010/07/12/fiv-separating-myth-from-fact/
5 year old female domestic shorthair / mix
Hi! My name is Baby Beth! I am super loving and affectionate! Usually I am the first one to run up to you when you enter the room. I love to run around and explore my surroundings, sniffing EVERYTHING because that is just what I do! Then I find myself the perfect spot to rest. I have an old eye injury that doesn't affect me at all, and the shelter staff think it gives me personality. I have become BEST buds with my big friend Cantaloupe. We are in love and hang out together for most of our days! I am a smaller cat, so we make a good pair, because he is so big! I don't have to go home with Cantaloupe, but if you are looking for a pair that love each other, then we are your match! Please come and meet me today!
7 year old female coonhound, redbone / mix in foster
Rosie is a big, beautiful girl who loves her walks and exploring new places. She'll enthusiastically join you for a nice hike or stroll or a game of fetch. This friendly girl relishes meeting new people. Once she gets to know you she's very affectionate. She is super sweet, calm, and really bonds with her people. She's good with other big dogs, and we think she might like to have a playmate. Rosie loves to bask in the sun at her foster mom's home. Her favorite spot is by the front door where she can check out all that's happening in the neighborhood. She's a very good girl who walks politely on leash, and already knows commands like "sit" and "stay". She is housebroken and will let you know that she needs to go out by standing by the door. She'll do best in a home with experienced dog owners and children 15 & older. She shouldn't live with cats (She's a bit too interested in them!) Rosie is in a foster home, so please call the shelter or email Cornelia today at baypathcornelia@gmail.com for more info!
10 month old female domestic longhair / mix in foster
Buttercup is the sweetest girl! She is affectionate and loves company - she will come to welcome you home if you've been out. She likes children and we'd like her to go to a home with kids. She is not a lap cat (yet?) but wants to be near you and will lie next to you to be pet and will purr appreciatively. She is happy to be picked up too. She is inquisitive and playful and will join in games with you or amuse herself. She also loves to birdwatch. Buttercup can be cautious in new situations but generally is very confident and relaxed. Buttercup has the softest fur and the fluffiest tail. Buttercup was brought back to the shelter originally because of litter box issues, which we believe was because of the other cat. She has been in foster for a while and has no accidents. Buttercup needs a home that understands cats. She does need a home without dogs or cats. Please email baypathkatie@gmail.com to find out more or meeting her since she is not at the shelter.
1 year 11 month old male hound / mix in foster
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!
11 month old male plott hound / mix in foster
Sawyer is affectionate, playful, and rides well in the car. This handsome boy needs time to warm up to people but once he feels comfortable he's a sweetie. He can be nervous about new experiences, but he's made great strides in his foster home. His foster dad says: "Sawyer is a fine young man! He's a calm, quiet guy, though he'll give a quick bark to alert me when someone arrives. He seems to enjoy the quiet here. Sawyer loves to go for walks and car rides. He has lots of fun in the yard exploring all the nooks and crannies in the stone walls. Other dogs and their humans are even better! He can be quite timid and sometimes needs reassurance in new places, or just needs a gentle reminder to settle down when greeting new people. He's still young and needs training but he's smart and is doing better as he settles in. He also likes to give kisses!" Please consider giving this special guy a home. Due to Sawyer's nervousness he needs a home with a fenced yard, and will do best as the only pet in the home. He's currently in a temporary foster home. Please contact us at adopt@baypathhumane.org or 508-435-6938 today to learn more about this special guy.
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.
