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.

Is your dog looking for a friend? Do you have a quiet home, and patience to help a shy dog blossom? If so, Tiny could be for you! Tiny and Trina are new arrivals here at Baypath. They came from a home with many dogs, and not much human attention. Because of this, they are very shy with people. Both girls want to be brave, they just need more time and patience to help them feel safe. If you sit with them and offer them treats, they start to warm up and show their true personalities. Tiny is looking for a quiet, adult only home. She needs to go to a home with an outgoing dog to help her gain confidence. She would benefit from a fenced in yard. If you think Tiny could fit in well with your family, please email adopt@baypathhumane.org today!

3 year 1 month old male mixed breed (60lbs) in foster
Say hello to Austin! This good looking guy likes exploring the great outdoors, eating chicken, playing with his toys and laying across your lap....size (and space) means nothing to him. And like the title of Michael Bolton's song, all he really needs is some "Time, Love and Tenderness". Once he is comfortable, nothing but love from this guy as that is all he wants in return. He will be all about spending time with his humans, and well, food too. He's food motivated and a smart cookie, so he practically will do a back flip....or a really good sit (and more), for a yummy treat! He's house trained, well mannered and a "go with the flow" type of guy. Pretty low key with the occasional zoomies, but hey life is all about having fun right?! Though he is a friendly guy, we think he'd benefit from being in home with kids 13 and up, being the only pet as well so he can soak up all the attention! Because all you give to him, he will give in return tenfold. Interested in meeting this handsome fella? Email adopt@baypathhumane.org today!

4 year 5 month old female bernedoodle in foster
Bobbi is an active, intelligent, and sweet young dog! She has a great energy level for toys and playtime with her people, exploring the outdoors and riding in the car. Bobbi is known to form a very strong bond with her person, so she would do best as the only animal in her home. While she used to be able to enjoy play dates with other dogs, she now prefers her time alone with people. She says she deserves to be the one to soak up all your attention and praise! Bobbi will benefit from continuing obedience training where she can learn to gain confidence and direct her excitement for life in appropriate ways. She is non-destructive and housebroken, and very eager to learn more. Because of the exuberant side of her personality, she will do best living with adults who have had experience with dogs who need more guidance with learning their manners. Bobbi cannot live in a home with kids, now or in the future. Bobbi would absolutely love a fenced yard of her own to romp around in and someone who will spend lots of time with her enjoying the great outdoors and keeping her mind working with games, puzzles, and tons more enrichment. Bobbi does have anxiety and has a relationship with a great trainer and behaviorist at Tufts. She is looking for an owner who understands dog behavior, and is committed to following through with her behavior plans. If you’d like to learn more about Bobbi, please email adopt@baypathhumane.org! **Please note - Bobbi is a Baypath Courtesy Posting. She is in foster and we are helping to facilitate her adoption**

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. Joey loves to play and romp around with female dogs. He prefers to be the only boy, and we do not know how he would be with cats. We think Joey would be happiest in a home as the only animal, to be the center of attention, or with a canine sister! When Joey gets excited, he can become jumpy or mouthy with people. Having a fenced in yard will be really helpful for his adjustment to a home! He needs an adult-only household with people who are ready to continue training with him and set him up for success.

1 year 2 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!
9 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!
