Meet Smidgen! Smidgen is an absolute sweetheart. He is gentle, playful and loving. He enjoys all kinds of toys, especially wands and laser lights. He gets along well with cats and kittens alike as he is not aggressive even in play. He loves pets, but not being picked up. He will sit beside you on the sofa and cuddle up with you in bed for a little bit. He will like being where you are and come see you when you come home. He is people oriented and friendly. He is a quiet cat with excellent house manners. Since he started off shy, a new transition may be hard for him so he will do well with a patient family. He gets along beautifully with kittens and cats of all ages. Since being with cats makes him happiest, he must go to a home with another kitten or existing cat. He would do best with kids 10 and older. Come meet him today!

Meet Smokey! This grey tiger and white 5-6mo old kitten is a little timid, but very sweet and gentle. He is gaining confidence steadily and just needs the gift of time. When he is sleepy and laying down, he enjoys pets and purrs loudly. This is his true nature and will be present all the time once he has the sense of permanence, security, and safety he deserves. He has never been aggressive beyond a hiss. He has lovely house manners and does sleep in bed with his foster parents for part of the night. He gets along beautifully with all the kittens he's with and is a little shadow of the two 2 yr. old cats in his foster home. He would do best with a playful, gentle and friendly feline companion in his new home, whether it's cat or kitten, and he cannot be the only cat in his home. As he is still coming along, a quieter home might be best for him, as well as a slow transition to the home with patient people. He would do best with adults and older teenagers. If you think Smokey is your boy, come meet him!

Meet Smudge! Smudge has a lovely, soft grey tiger and white coat. He is a big cat for his 5-6mo. He is a friendly, loving kitten given to bouts of unexpected snuggling! He has a great purr and loves pets. He is sweet, gentle, and playful - never aggressive. He has excellent house manners and isn't the least destructive. There is not a mean bone in him. Because of his unfortunate early months he might be shy or fearful while adjusting to a new environment. Patient people will help him adjust. He loves to play with all of the cats in his foster home, as well as with wand toys and lasers. He is friendly and likes to lay on the couch with you and sleeps in bed with his foster parents. He loves pets, but not being picked up. He likes to be with people and comes to greet you when you come home. He is a real sweetheart! Since he may be shy with new situations, he would do best in a home with kids over 10. Come meet him today!

Meet Ivy! Ivy is a lanky grey tiger and white kitten with grey eyes. She is fun and playful, and great with all the kittens and cats she has come in contact with. She loves to play wand and laser with "her" people. She would make a great companion for a friendly, playful older cat or a friendly kitten. She doesn't like to be reached for or feel chased but can be pet when she is eating or sleepy, at which time she purrs like crazy and rolls around for better body coverage. Her favorite toys are wands, laser lights and track toys. At this point in time she is an independent cat, and will give out the love only when she is in the mood. Ivy has very good house manners and is not at all destructive. If you are looking for a friend for your cat, Ivy is your girl! She must be in a home with a cat companion, and would do best in a patient home with adults and older teens. If you think Ivy is your girl, come meet her today!

Meet Kiki! Kiki is a very pretty and petite black 5 mo. old with lovely bronze eyes. She has great house manners. She is very playful and gets along well with all the cats and kittens in her foster home. She would make a great companion for a friendly cat or kitten. Because her early days were very frightening, Kiki remains shy of being reached for, pet, or picked up. She is not at all aggressive however. She just moves out of reach. She loves to play with people, especially with wands or laser lights and love track toys. She is very food oriented, and her new owner can make friends by offering her treats by hand. Kiki loves other cats, and playing. Those are the 2 things that make her happiest in life, so she must go to a home with a playful cat. She is considered a "spirit cat" and although she will be very entertaining to her new family, and she will make a wonderful friend and playmate to your other cat, she may never be a friendly cat with people. If you think Kiki is the cat for you, come meet her today!

He loves to run around playing with all the toys and the big cats and kittens in his foster home. He also enjoys wand games and laser dot. He has excellent house manners. He will be happiest in a home with a young cat in residence or being adopted with another kitten to play with. When he can't find one of his cat friends in foster he walks around the home crying, so he must be in a home with a cat companion. A family with cat savvy kids over 7 will be okay for him! Come meet this handsome boy today!

She is very playful and plays with everything as if it were a toy. She is happy playing with her many foster siblings and the 4 adult cats in her foster home. She would be happiest with a kitten companion to play with, but a friendly, younger companion cat already in the home would make her happy too. She cannot be the only cat in her home. Cat savvy children over 7 will be okay for her, and she will be happiest in a home where she can get lots of attention as she will not be happy alone all day. Come meet this stunning girl today!

Meet King! King is a large black kitten, the big boy of his litter. He is the most timid of his siblings. In spite of his size, he's still just a frightened little kitten inside. He's come a long way in foster care, but is still a work in progress. When he can relax, he purrs and purrs as you pet him, showing what he can become. But because he is still wary he often shies away from your approach. He seems to be a quieter cat than his siblings. Though he still plays with all the other kittens and cats, he is not as rambunctious. He also backs off of food dishes when other kittens push in, in spite of his size advantage. He is a gentle giant. King enjoys playing with the cats and kittens in his foster home and he will do best having a friendly feline companion to show him how safe his world is now. He would be happiest in a quiet home with patient people to help him adjust. He has never shown any aggressive behavior other than hissing, but it is best that he go to a home without children, again to lessen the unpredictability of his environment. He is going to develop into a lovely feline companion given the gift of time to feel safe and secure, but he may never be comfortable with strangers. He would do best with adults and older teenagers. If you think King is your boy, come meet him today!

Beautiful Abby is one amazing girl that would make anyone lucky to have her! She is 10 years old, but her age NEVER shows! If you are looking for a loyal companion to call your best friend, then Abby is your girl! She must go to a mellow, adult only home that is planning on just letting her hang with her people! She would rather stay home and only go to places that she is comfortable and familiar with. Abby loves to play with toys and is pretty good at entertaining herself! She also is a huge fan of water! When she sees water, she sheds about 5 years! She will jump and splash around and have a blast! Abby can live with another, mellow, dog-friendly dog pending a successful dog meet. She would also do just fine as an only dog as long as her people are home often to give her love and attention. All she wants to do is be in your pocket and please you! She walks great on a leash, and eventually could be an off-leash dog once bonded to her people. If she hears you say the word "walk" she has no problem showing her excitement! She loves to sleep in bed with you and roll over for belly rubs. Abby can be nervous around new people, especially men, but if they just give her some treats, take it slowly, and not pressure her then she quickly realizes that everything is alright! Abby is in a foster home and if you are interested in her then please email baypathdevon@gmail.com.

Requirements/Suggestions: A patient, mature owner (having prior experience with cats would be a bonus). Bailey MUST GO TO A QUIET HOME WITH ANOTHER CAT. Bailey is a shy, gentle, baby girl who yearns for a mother's love. She would thrive in a quiet setting, and with an owner who can dedicate lots of one-on-one time and therapeutic snuggling to her. Despite giving off a skittish vibe in wide/open areas, Bailey can transform into an absolute snuggle-bear* when she feels comfortably contained (a small bathroom/bedroom, etc.). When Bailey opens up her heart to you, it's a bond that'll last a lifetime. Bailey's purr is the best kind of reward, and her stare is truly beautiful when lit up with trust. When we first introduced Bailey to our newest group of kittens, they could sense that she was unsure of what to make of them, so their interactions were limited for the first couple days. However, I later noticed that Bailey began to ‘play paws' with them under the door. This method of playful interaction allowed them to gradually get accustomed to each other's unique smells, and helped establish that they weren't of any danger to one another. The next day, upon me opening the door to Bailey's room, her four new friends rushed in, and she allowed them to sniff and rub up against her without running away. Now she sleeps and plays in the same rooms as them, behaving as though they've been at her side since the beginning! She'll sit on your lap and purr, let you rub her tummy, and permit you to pick her up/hold her. Bailey can be somewhat of a ‘lazy eater' (she has a history of tooth discomfort), so you'll find that she eats the most if you manually spoon-feed her or put out a pile of 'Temptations' treats. Bailey has also shown that she is capable of enjoying dry food despite her dental ailments, which can prove later on to be beneficial in the strengthening of her teeth.

If ever there was a dog in need of country living it's ZZ. This darling girl is super friendly and loves people. She was hit by a car and has recovered, but cars and car noises are stressful to her. She needs to live in a very quiet area where she can play in a large fenced yard and/or get walks in an area with very little car traffic. If you have a pet-free home and either a big fenced yard or live on a quiet street or near wooded trails, ZZ could be the girl for you! She's an extremely smart girl and can't wait to show off all she's learned through the training program she graduated from. Like any young dog, she'll do best with plenty of physical and mental exercise. We think she'd rock at agility training even canine frisbee. She just needs to get into a quiet foster or forever home where she can unwind and let her true, beautiful self shine!

Meet Tina, Harry, and Scott! These cuties are ready for their new families. They didn't get a lot of socialization when they were young, so will need extra patience in their new homes so they can adjust. We haven't had them long, but so far we know they love to play! Tina is the most shy, and Scott is the most brave of the bunch. They should go to homes with no kids, and all should be in homes with a friendly cat to be a role model for them. If you think these sweet kittens might be a good fit for you, come meet them today!

1 year 11 month old female dalmatian / mix in foster
Pigeon is a special girl! She's super social and seems to get along well with lots of dogs, though sometimes she's perfectly content to hang out by herself. Pigeon is not good with cats. She is very affectionate and loves her people. She has a youthful, playful side but also likes to chill out by your side. Pigeon is very high energy and walks great on a leash. She would do best with an active owner with previous dog experience who is willing to tucker her out. She is young and will require additional positive reinforcement training. She is extremely responsive to yummy treats which will help greatly in her training. We believe she is deaf, but that doesn't seem to bother her. She loves to play with toys and goof around. She's a good girl who's already crate trained. She's just the right size - not too big and not too small. She is a love bug and cute as a button...those ears...so adorable. Please call for more info or come and meet Pigeon today!

Nova is a star of a dog! He is high energy and would love to be part of an active household. He would do best in a home with older teens or with just adults because of his rambunctiousness. His ideal home would have a fenced-in yard, and would benefit from a lot of play, exercise, and positive reinforcement training. He would get along well with another active dog since he might come on too strong for some. He is a goofy, fun-loving dog who loves to give kisses!

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!

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!'

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
1 year 11 month old male terrier / mix
Fraggle is a young terrier mix whose adorable face and 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, since he is reactive on leash. 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 is house trained and crate trained. ** Please note: We know Fraggle looks like an adorable muppet, but he's an anxious guy who is frightened by children and should not live with them. He's been through a lot and needs just the right home to feel comfortable. Must haves for Fraggle: A quiet single-family home with NO CHILDREN, NO CATS, AND NO DOGS. He would not be suitable for an apartment lifestyle. If you fit that bill and have experience with anxious dogs, please give us a call. ** 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!

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.
