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.

Stella loves to sit on the back of the sofa behind people. She might even play with your hair too! Stella lived with two dogs. One was good with her and one chased her a lot. Stella might be comfortable living with a chill cat savvy dog. Stella also lived with children ages 11 - 18 and she was tolerant of the younger children but didn't seek them out.

Pat the Cat is a big, classic tiger kitty ready to find his new family! He's a very friendly boy and loves to be pet. He's looking for a low key household to lounge around and be spoiled in. Pat has a temptations-tooth, and will come running for treats! He is still new to the shelter so we are still learning about his favorite things as he settles in. We're unsure how he feels about other cats or dogs at this point. Come meet him today!
2 year old female golden retriever mix in foster
*** Shila is not at Baypath Humane - This is a Courtesy Post for Yankee Golden Retriever Rescue! *** Boy oh boy was this a trip! I have come a long way and still have some to go, but I hope this all ends up with me in a great home! I am a very peculiar girl, but not in a bad way. I think I just haven’t experienced a lot of the things you American people do with your dogs!? I would love to have a home as the only dog. I wouldn’t say I am completely against meeting other dogs, but I need more time and practice before I can feel completely comfortable. So living with one would probably be way too much. I would love to work on this in my new home and get better and better at it. I think my inexperience hinders me here. I would love to get attention all day long. I’m not super into toys, although I am learning they can be fun. Can I tell you a secret?? I think my favorite thing to play with is YOU! That’s right! I love it when my human friends jog around, playbow to me, get me all excited and run around some more. It is the most fun game I’ve ever played! I get the zoomies and start running around and will playbow back at you and then dodge and juke you out of your shoes! I do have some sensitivities. The first being strangers. If you let me take the time to get to know you then I am much more comfortable than if you rush me. The second sensitivity is my ears. When I arrived at Yankee from Turkey, I had a pretty bad ear infection on top of a wounded and bloody ear. So I can be a little head shy and really am not sure about people touching my ears until I am comfortable with you. Then the last sensitivity is my skin. I have sensitive skin so keeping a consistent diet is best and also taking my daily meds for any itching is helping a lot! I’m hoping that you will find me cute and fun even though it means you have to play back! It is a fun game, I promise! *** If you are interested in finding out more about Shila please email adoption@ygrr.org ***
2 year old male domestic longhair / mix
Wells just arrived to our shelter and is looking to settle into his new, comfy forever home! He was brought to us after being found as a stray, neglected and left outside, and his coat was so dirty that it was best for him to get shaved and start fresh. When you see him you might giggle, but try not to embarrass the poor guy! Now he's recovering comfortably and trying to acclimate to his new surroundings (and grow his coat back) - understandably, he's a little nervous and hand shy, but if you go slow and let him come to you he's a headbutting sweetheart. But we can tell he's sweet and so deserving of love and attention. We're still learning as much as we can about him as he settles in, so please call to find out more or come to meet him today!
2 year old female domestic shorthair / mix
Snickerdoodle is a wonderful cat who has been a fantastic mother to her six kittens. Now she is ready to relax and be pampered all by herself. She enjoys luxurious head scratches and sitting near people she feels comfortable with. She sometimes likes to play, but mostly enjoys resting. She's a dignified lady! She likes attention on her terms, so if you offer her your hand, she’ll rub her head against it when she wants attention. She would do best in a home with adults and no young children. She would prefer a home by herself, with no other pets that may get in her space. If you think you can give our beautiful girl the comfort she deserves, please come meet her today!
10 year old male persian mix
Marc is a charming, older gentleman who has experienced some changes in his life and found himself in need of a home. He has a sweet personality in such a petite body! He can be nervous and a little hand shy at first, but is very once he feels comfortable he's so friendly. He's looking for a person to bond with. Marc loves it when you scratch his head and he can be a lap cat when he's in the mood. He can be a talkative boy, and some of his favorite pastimes include sunning himself when it's warm and finding a heat vent to snuggle on when it's cold! He gets along well with other cats, but has never seen a dog before. He would thrive in a quiet home where he can lounge around happily like the couch potato he is. Please call the shelter for more information or come meet this cutie today!
4 year old male dsh
Matthew just loves to have his big cheeks rubbed! Once he starts getting attention, he becomes a purring machine. He is a little nervous in new situations, and is looking for a quiet home that can give him time to settle in and adjust to his new surroundings and come out of his shell. We think he would do best in a home without children because they might be a little bit too much for him. If you think he might be the right fit for your family, please call the shelter or come and meet him today!
6 year old male domestic medium hair / mix
His name might be 'Little Guy', but his personality and looks pack a big punch! He is so social, loving to spend time with people and get pets. His long coat is surprisingly soft like down and he'll twirl around you to show off. Unfortunately, Little Guy's past homes were a bit unpredictable and tumultuous so he's looking to settle into a permanent, loving environment where he can be the only cat to soak up all the attention. If you think Little Guy might be the companion for you, come meet him today!
2 year old male domestic shorthair / mix
Hank's tiger stripes are turning heads here at the shelter; match that with a friendly and affectionate personality and you might have met your perfect companion!

Hank has tested positive for FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus), but it doesn't get him down, and it shouldn't for you either!

If you're looking for the next heavyweight champion of your home, Rockey has entered the ring! Weighing in at almost 20lbs, Rockey is ready to ring your bell. This sweet boy loves to lounge around and clearly never turns his nose up at treats. He likes to circle your legs when you enter the room and twirl around for scratches. He may enjoy living with another lowkey cat, but is overall looking for an quiet, mature home to settle into. Please come meet him today!
10 month old male mixed breed in foster
Dougal is an absolute sweetheart of a dog who made the trip up from Louisiana. Dougal is not quite a year old yet, but his relatively laid back demeanor would make you think he's older than that! He's an old soul, but one that loves to romp around and play. He gets along well with his buddy Chester, which would lead us to believe he would be fine living with another dog, but it always depends on the meet. He is definitely overwhelmed with his new surroundings and having met so many new people so he's going to need a quiet, mature household to be most comfortable. ** Dougal is a lucky boy currently hanging out in a temporary foster home, so please email adopt@baypathhumane.org to find out more!
11 month old male mixed breed
Chester is a tall drink of southern water who made the long trip up from Louisiana to find his forever home. Everyone whose met Chester has described him as one big goober! He is young, energetic, and loves to give and get affection. He'll play with toys until he drops, especially the stuffy ones. He loves to go for walks in the woods and chase after tennis balls. Chester will benefit greatly from training classes - we can tell he's a smart boy, and training can help teach you appropriate ways to keep his brain busy and happy! Chester seems to get along well with other playful dogs, but it always depends on how the meet goes. Chester would do best in a mature home. Come meet him today!
3 year 1 month old female mixed in foster
Baypath has been waiting for Cheyenne to come north for awhile now. Cheyenne came to us from Louisiana where she successfully completed the long treatment for heartworm. The pictures do not do Cheyenne justice, because she is probably one of the cutest dogs ever!! Cheyenne is a little overwhelmed with her new environment but she warms relatively quickly. We think Cheyenne might be okay living with cats too! She is currently hanging out in a foster home, so please email adopt@baypathhumane.org for more information.
3 year 1 month old male domestic shorthair / mix
Louie is such a looker! This gentleman needs a little time to get to know his new people, but he does well alongside other cats and must go home with a confident one to help him come out of his shell in his new environment. Once he knows you, he enjoys being petted and brushed. Sudden loud noises tend to scare him and he'll hide as a result, but only to come out soon after. Curiously, Louie's favorite toys are the ones that make noises back at him! Please come and meet this sweet boy today!
7 month old female mixed breed
Ashley made the long transport up from South Carolina and is now ready to find a forever home with patience, love, and understanding towards her nerves! The drive was long but so worth it for this beauty to find her people. Ashley is wiggly and playful, but understandably fearful in new surroundings with new experiences. If you have yummy cheese or chicken to treat her with, she's your girl! Ashley would do best in an adult home, preferably with shy dog experience. We think she may gain confidence and benefit from having another confident dog in the household pending a meet. She absolutely loves to run around with toys and walks so well on a leash. She has even mastered "sit", and we know she's more than ready to keep learning! Please call or come meet her today!
7 month old female mixed breed

10 year 1 month old male domestic shorthair / mix in foster
Meet Biscuit! With all cups of great tea, you need an equally great biscuit - and he's your man. Biscuit is very sweet and likes to be scratched. He's a quiet boy who prefers to hang out and mind his business rather than get into trouble like those kittens! He is a true people pleaser. While Biscuit doesn't seem to like other cats and would prefer no children, 'orange' you looking for one wonderful companion? Biscuit has tested positive for FIV (feline immunodeficiency virus), but it doesn't get him down, and it shouldn't for you either! You can read more about it here: http://bestfriends.org/resources/fiv-cats-faqs. Biscuit is currently hanging out in a foster home, waiting for his forever. If you think you'd be a good fit for Biscuit please send an email to adopt@baypathhumane.org!
6 month old male mixed breed in foster
Ruston came to us from...you guessed it, Louisiana! Ruston is a beautiful puppy who has lived a very sheltered life so far. This means that the world is a strange and scary place. He is going to need a quiet home alongside another dog and mature owners who have had dog experience, ideally shy dog experience. Another dog is necessary to show him the ropes of living in a home and feeling comfortable with people. As a 5 month old pup, Ruston can only be left alone for 4 hours at a time. Are you and your dog a good match for Ruston? Ruston is currently spending time out of the shelter in a temporary foster home, so please email adopt@baypathhumane.org to find out more about his application process!
4 year 2 month old male domestic shorthair / mix in foster
Mountain Dew is a cheeky little fellow found stranded out in the cold. He's been through a lot and is still learning that it's okay for him to trust people! For the people he sees on a consistent basis and has safe experiences with, he does well. He enjoys a slow chin scratch and if you exercise patience, you'll even have him eating out of your hand! Just recently, he's begun to surprise volunteers by climbing right into their lap to enjoy some pets. He's finally coming to realize the joy of receiving affection! He also has a playful side, which reveals itself when the wand toys come out. Mountain Dew is a little too stressed to enjoy the presence of other cats right now so he'd really do best as the only pet in the home. Mountain Dew is hanging out in a foster home right now, so if you think you could be the right match to give this boy the comfortable life he deserves please email adopt@baypathhumane.org to find out more!
8 year 3 month old male domestic shorthair / mix
Are you familiar with how '50 First Dates' went? Siam sure is. It may just take 50 first dates until he feels comfortable with you. He's striking to look at - and to be frank, that's all you'll really be able to do until you two get to know each other on a more personal level. He's been through a lot and needs significant time to gain trust. He is slowly improving with people who exercise utmost patience, and boy is he deserving of that. Siam is food-motivated and can eat from your hand or off a spoon. He has one special, blue-feathered wand toy that he is over the moon to track down and wrestle with! Once you've met each other a few times and he knows you have the best intentions to respect his comfort level and go at his pace, he may allow you to pet him. If your back is turned for a moment, sometimes he'll surprise you by quietly appearing behind you, just peering over your shoulder in curiosity! Siam is great with other cats and we believe he'd be happy to share his home with another confident one to help him adjust more quickly. Please call the shelter to see if you'd be a good fit for Siam!
1 year 4 month old male domestic shorthair / mix in foster
Rio is quite affectionate and loves to be the center of attention. His foster says this sweet boy enjoys pets and lounging in your lap, so he's ready to find you! Despite his lovable demeanor, he also has a fresh side - when overstimulated from touch or excitement, he'll start with love nipping and playful paws. This frisky kitty needs lots of playtime but also a good amount of down time. He absolutely loves chasing and batting around wand toys. He will definitely need an understanding and cat-savvy family, a family who will help stimulate him in positive ways. He would thrive in an adult home either alone or possibly with another confident cat that can handle his playful antics! ** Rio is hanging out in a temporary foster home, so please email kcaron@baypathhumane.org to find out more or set up a meet with him!
10 year 5 month old female domestic shorthair / mix in foster
Oh, did you say you wanted some personal space? Bernadette doesn't really know what that is! She'll follow you around until you figure out she always wants to be petted. Bernadette doesn't do well with other animals, but would really like a home to call her own and be comfortable. She certainly deserves it! She seems like she would do well with children over the age of 7, if any. ** Bernadette is currently looking for a hospice home. Unfortunately she is showing signs of cancer, but is keeping her strength and does not require medical care at this time. If you'd like to learn more about Bernadette and setting up a meet with her, please email kcaron@baypathumane.org!
10 year 6 month old male mixed breed, large (over 44 lbs fully grown) / mix in foster
Meet Spencer -- or Mr. Wiggle Butt as his foster family affectionately calls him! He's a social butterfly who's excited to greet new people as friends. This happy boy loves nothing better than to snuggle under the covers with his humans. Rub his super soft belly and he'll be your best pal! Fetch is Spencer's favorite pastime and he'll leap in the air to catch a ball or a toy. He enjoys going out on hikes in the woods, and then curling up on his bed afterwards with a nice stuffy toy. Spencer is a smart cookie is already knows how to sit and give paw, walks politely on a leash, is house trained, and is a dream in the car. His foster parents shared that he's a very good boy who loves to chill out on the sofa after a walk and is very good in the house and out. Spencer is looking for an adult home where he can be your one-and-only pet. Because Spencer has been bounced around a lot in his life, he does take time to acclimate to his new home, so he’ll need a patient, loving adopter who can spend some extra time with him in the early weeks when he’s transitioning to a new home to help him get comfortable. Our staff can provide many resources to help set you up for success. He just needs someone who understands that Spencer will be a delight to have in your home once he settles in. ** Spencer is hanging out in a temporary foster home, so please contact us at jlorusso@baypathhumane.org for more info about this big love and his application process!
12 year old female mixed breed, large (over 44 lbs fully grown) / mix in foster
Look at this face! Gretta is a super friendly girl who is sure to win your heart! She loves to be by your side, going out for a long walk or chilling out on the couch. She's happiest riding in the car, soaking up the sun in the yard, or finding a cozy spot in the house to hang out. Her foster mom says Gretta has a special way with people. "My kids say Gretta has human eyes. Her eyes tell you stories of her life, she has been there done that, she has seen a lot yet she still opens to love." You could never guess her age from all the pep in her step. She has lots of energy to take out on squeaky toys and rope toys! This polite lovebug is housetrained, wonderful in the house, and knows several commands (stop, no, wait, sit, down, stay). She'll do best in a home free of cats and dogs since she gets a little too excited when she sees them. ** Gretta is currently in a temporary foster home, so please email adopt@baypathhumane.org to find out more about this delightful girl's application process!
1 year 8 month old female mixed breed, medium (up to 44 lbs fully grown) / mix in foster
Kourtney is a very special young girl who has come all the way from Jamaica to find her forever home. She brings a sweet & compassionate energy to her foster home where she has made friends over the last year. Becoming accustomed to life not on the streets has been hard for Kourtney, but she is making progress every day. A life of routine & patience is what Kourtney is looking for in her forever family. She will do best in a positive minded home with older children (teens) & a fenced in back yard to chase tennis balls in the sunshine. Kourtney's foster family says she establishes great companionship with other confident dogs which help her open up once she feels comfortable. Letting Kourtney just be a dog & not forcing her to be anything more than what she is safe with is the key to winning her trust. Kourtney is a treat & food driven hound. High value treats seem to give her enough encouragement to approach & possibly even paw for attention. She is smart, playful & entertaining to have around the house especially if you already have a dog who needs some friendship. Kourtney will attach to their hip & pick up on the daily life activities quickly. To help Kourtney with a successful transition to her home, she will require a fenced yard (she is not quite ready for walking on a leash with a new family yet), and another dog to help her continue to gain confidence. Kourtney is currently in a foster home, if you are interested in learning more about this special gal, please email adopt@baypathhumane.org. We look forward to hearing from you!
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!
