Animal shelters go extra mile for pets
The MetroWest Daily News interviewed Baypath Humane Society Executive Director Liz Jefferis about preparations the shelter makes to keep the animals safe and comfortable during major storms.
Eagle Leasing Donates Office Space
When Baypath Humane Society reached out to Eagle Leasing about ways to expand their office space, co-owner Mark Eagle graciously offered free use of a 8x28-foot mobile office. This generous gift will give Baypath Humane's staff a quiet work area that did not exist in the busy animal shelter.
The family-owned Eagle Leasing has an impressive history of philanthropic work, from sponsoring local food drives to providing free trailers for relief efforts in the wake of hurricanes and natural disasters. Their gift of new office space will help support Baypath Humane's critical animal rescue work.
Kittens Bring Together Animal Hospital and Humane Society
In June, the Hopkinton Police rescued four young, abandoned kittens and brought them to Baypath Humane Society for care. The Baypath team rushed the critically ill kittens to VCA Westborough Animal Hospital, who sprang into action, providing fluids and much needed TLC. The kittens were quickly stabilized and are growing big and strong.
This interaction sparked a new partnership between the animal hospital and humane society. Baypath was thrilled when VCA Animal Hospitals announced that they would like to be the Presenting Sponsor for their 8th annual Paws & Claws 5K, to be held on October 15, 2017 at Hopkinton State Park.
Celebrating Foster Families
We're thrilled that one of our dedicated foster families was recognized by the MetroWest Daily News in their "Good to Know" column about people who give back to their community. Michelle Kreell, her husband John, and son Sam have given an incredible amount of time, love, and attention to help tougher to adopt dogs find new homes.
Specialized Approach to Pet Adoption
Baypath Humane was honored that NBC Boston featured us in a segment about the Clear the Shelters adoption event, highlighting our Dog Behavior Team, our incredible volunteer network who works with staff to truly enrich the lives of the animals in our care and get them ready for their forever homes.
