At Baypath, we do our best to collect both behavior and medical histories on our animals, as well as do our own evaluations and observations. We gather as much information as we can to suggest what we believe to be the ideal situation for each animal. We do this in the interest of the animal's quality of life as well as to assist our potential adopters. As always, safety is of the utmost importance in our decision making process.

We are always more than happy to discuss our animals with you and highly encourage you to call or email the shelter at info@baypathhumane.org if you have any questions or want more information regarding any of our animals.

7 year old male domestic shorthair
Meet Brawny! This handsome boy is new to the shelter so we are still getting to know him. He is very friendly and loves spending time with people. He is a purr bucket and loves attention! We think he would do well with kids over 10. Brawny did test positive for FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus), but it doesn't get him down in the slightest, and it shouldn't for you either! Our staff is happy to speak with you more about FIV positive cats and you can read more about it here: http://bestfriends.org/resources/fiv-cats-faqs If you think Brawny Is the cat for you, please email adopt@baypathhumane.org for more information about our current COVID-19 adoption process!

2 year old male mixed breed in foster
Oh, handsome Chester! Months of diligence, consistency, and a caring foster home have allowed him to make significant strides in reaching his best potential as a canine companion. He is truly a diamond under a rough coat. Chester is a mixed breed, weighing approximately 65lbs and is around 2 years old. He is goofy, playful, and inherently loyal. As a strapping young lad, he thrives on being active with moderate exercise and being kept busy. He'll do best having a secure, fenced-in yard to be his domain to romp around in without the distractions of passerby's. Pending a proper introduction, he may enjoy living alongside another dog. Since coming to our shelter in need of support, he has made significant progress in learning about how to be appropriate and polite when introduced to new people. He's also getting better at feeling settled and confident when left alone, and has nearly mastered good house manners (including house-training)! While this is a continuing journey for Chester, he is a loyal goofy boy who keeps you smiling. If you have a patient, dog-experienced family looking for a notably affectionate and loyal dog, we can help support your family and Chester. Since he sometimes has issues sharing possessions, we are recommending a home with adults or older teens. If you’d like to help Chester live the good life and be the companion he truly loves to be please inquire at foster@baypathhumane.org. We can also provide you more information about our Covid 19 adoption process!
Helpful hint: Please bring copies of your vet records if you're considering adopting. This will help speed up your adoption process.
Note: Animals in foster are living in temporary foster homes and are available for adoption. Please contact us at adopt@baypathhumane.org or 508-435-6938 to learn more about a dog or cat who's in foster. Thanks!
