Pet Pantry Programs

Forging Critical Partnerships

A key part of Baypath’s mission is to keep pets in their homes when possible. Doing so is healthy for the pets and their people. However, when pet owners face financial hardship, even the daily aspect of pet ownership such as buying food and treats or getting flea and tick medicine can be out of reach. Baypath is proud to provide a link to basic everyday needs through our partnerships with local food pantries, including the Metrowest Pet Pantry and Project Just Because.

Based on our success with the two pantries, our local Animal Control partner, Melinda MacKendrick, is now collaborating with us to provide food and supplies to the Grafton Food Pantry. We are also honored to partner with the Pawsitive Pet Pantry, a nonprofit that connects people in need of pet food with resources in their community.

With families still facing difficult times, we are honored to be able to give back to our community in such a meaningful way.

Featured Partner: Project Just Because

In the past year, we have seen an increase in need in our immediate area of Hopkinton, as well, and have responded by becoming a pet supply partner to the Project Just Because food pantry. Since 2004, Project Just Because has been serving the metrowest community as a resource for items that families need, such as food and clothing, while also educating families that want to help people but don’t know how.

Now, thanks to a sponsorship from our friends at Middlesex Savings Bank and our Pet Pantry Coordinator Jus, we have been able to help Project Just Because formalize a section of their food pantry dedicated to pet supplies. We installed clearly marked shelving to display pet food, treats, and essential supplies such as bowls and leashes. We are able to keep this area stocked in part from the generosity of our own donations, happily paying forward the excess we receive.
