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.

1 year old male domestic shorthair
Meet Olde Macdonald (also known as Curious George by his foster)! This little guy has had a rough start, but is now up and running and ready for his forever home. You can probably tell right off the bat that there is something a little different about this cat: Olde Mac had to have surgery to remove his eyes. He came to us with shrunken and nonfunctioning eyes, and to avoid potential future medical issues, our veterinarian recommended they be removed. Thankfully, his hasn't slowed him down at all. From day one, he has loved cuddling and being petted! Although he cannot see, he loves to play with wand toys - he can hear and sense the vibrations of the toy in the air. He does occasionally get too excited when playing and may grab your hand, but is easily redirectable. He is looking for a home with children 12 and up and with no other animals, and most importantly one that will be patient with helping him adjust to their home. To learn more about Olde Macdonald and our Covid process, please email us at adopt@baypathhumane.org!

3 year 1 month old male mixed breed (75 lbs)
Are you looking for a big lap dog to join your family? What about a big ham?! Meet Joey! This giant goofball is looking for an experienced dog owner to call his own. Joey has the best butt wiggle and will always show you just how happy he is to see you! We think that Joey may not have the best auditory hearing, but that does not seem to slow him down in life at all. He is happiest when he has a toy to wrestle with and could entertain himself for hours. Spending time with people is just as good as playtime for Joey! Joey will jump up to sit with you, and is not shy about getting comfy right in your lap. Joey would do best in a home with a yard that he can run in. He is looking to be the only animal in his home.

If you are looking for a playful buddy to hang out with, please email adopt@baypathhumane.org today to learn more of sweet Joey!
1 year 1 month old male domestic shorthair
Sepia is hoping someone can bring him home soon! The most important thing in his life is other cats; he bonds much more easily other cats than to humans. He needs a new, confident cat friend (or friends!) to help him come out of his shell. He also wants his friend to be young like him, so they can share their young cat antics and play games. He isn't picky about male vs. female either! Sepia finds dogs and children very scary, so he says no thanks to that. Sepia is still very nervous of people and will hide if given the chance. Sepia has started opening more and more to everyone; he enjoys a good chin scratch and may sit in your lap if you give him the time. He likes his food and yummy treats, so maybe that, combined with time and patience, he may come around to his new owners. He does promise to be your cat's best friend at the very least! If he is the friend your cat is looking for, please email adopt@baypathhumane.org to learn more about Sepia and our Covid adoption process!
2 year 1 month old male domestic shorthair in foster
Meet Melvin! Melvin is what you might call a velcro cat - he always wants to be in your space and will follow you around. He loves to play and hasn't met a toy he doesn’t like yet! Melvin can be very active, but once he is tired out he likes to sit on the couch next you and knead blankets. He might sounds like the perfect cat, but he does have some quirks he is working on. He gets so excited when he is pet, he overreacts and may nip or swat you. His foster is working with him to get him used to being pet in a friendly manner, and it's important that his future home is able to continue to work with his training. He must be the only animal in his home since he doesn't enjoy their company. To learn more about Melvin and our Covid process, please adopt@baypathhumane.org!

8 month old male domestic longhair in foster
Meet Alpha! Alpha is a handsome long-haired gray kitten who has come a long way in his foster home. He was extremely shy and fearful upon arrival, but with time, love and patience he’s learned to trust and relax. He is now a purring, sweet and affectionate kitten who enjoys playing with toy mice and will nudge you for pets and chin scratches. He is unsure about the world around him and the people who are trying to show him love, so will require a home that understands this and is willing to be very patient and give him the space and time he needs to feel safe. His new home should be calm with older teens or adults only and because he is still shy, he will need to go to a home with a confident cat companion. He may always be more of a friend for your cat. He will also do well with a cat-friendly dog. Alpha has FIV, but that does not slow him down a bit! Read more about FIV here - https://resources.bestfriends.org/article/fiv-cats-faqs-feline-immunodeficiency-virus. If you’d like to know more about this sweetheart, please email adopt@baypathhumane.org today for more info!
