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.

2 year old female mixed breed
Trudy is a love who likely had a not so great start in life. She is great in the home - house trained, quiet, moderate energy, no destruction, etc - and will be your best friend. She just needs someone who understands and accepts her potential limitations and can provide a safe environment for her. Her biggest ‘quirk’ is her greeting style - she barks out of what we feel is frustration, but with just a little bit of time and effort… and some excellent treats she is great with everyone. And when you’re in, you’re in! She would do great with someone looking to do more training - she loves it! We are looking for a quiet adult-only pet-free home for this girl. We are committed to doing right by her and will sponsor training to help her settle in and empower her family to help her! Please email Trudy@baypathhumane.org to learn more. We have a ton more info and videos of this brindle beauty to share!

8 month old female mixed
Sophia is a precious young tripod is ready to meet her new forever family! Sophia is about 8 months old and currently weighs about 45lbs. When she was rescued back in July, her right hind leg was severely compromised. Her leg needed to be amputated and she is now getting used to getting around on 3! She is getting stronger each day, and loves to run around and go for hikes. She is still such an energetic and playful pup. A fenced in yard would be a plus for her, and Sophia must live in a quiet area. City living is just too hectic! Sophia is so smart and loves to keep her mind busy with training or enrichment activities. She loves big squeaky toys, especially her stuffed Lambchop. Sophia needs an adult-only, dog-experienced home that is committed to helping her refine her manners and work through some mouthy behaviors. She's a social butterfly and loves her people - if she were a student, she'd be teacher's pet. She cannot wait to go to training and show off! Although she can keep up and play with other energetic dogs, she wants to be the only dog in her home so she can soak up all your attention. No cats for this lady, she's a bit too interested! If you are interested in learning more about Sophia and our current adoption process, please email adopt@baypathhumane.org today!
2 year 4 month old male mixed breed in foster
Please email adopt@baypathhumane.org for more information about Chester during our COVID adoption process! 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!
