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 (35#)
Meet Holly! Holly has quite the story to tell - she is a survivor! Holly went through life saving surgery when she was rescued and she is now feeling better than ever! Holly loves life - playing with toys, spending time with people, and even hanging out with her dog and cat pals! Holly is a young and sweet natured girl. She is quiet and happy to snuggle up on the couch, or go for a nice hike in the woods. Holly is looking for a home in a quiet area as she is not prepared for city life. She would be happy as the center of attention or with an animal companion. We think Holly would do well with kids over 7. If you think Holly is the dog you have been looking for, please email adopt@baypathhumane.org today!
3 year 3 month old female mixed breed (55#)
Meet Eclipse! This nervous lady is looking for a patient family to help her learn about life as a beloved pet! Eclipse is new to the shelter, and we are learning more about her sweet personality as she opens up more each day. Eclipse is very shy with people, but she loves other dogs! Eclipse gains confidence from other dogs, and tends to follow their lead. She is looking for a home with a confident dog pal to help show her the ropes! Leash walking is new to her, so she is still learning how to walk on a leash. She would do best in a home with a fenced in yard. Eclipse is looking for a home with adults and older teens (15+). If you think she is the dog for you, please email adopt@baypathhumane.org today!
5 year 6 month old female mixed breed ( 52#)
Meet Honey! This gorgeous girl is ready to settle into her new home! Honey is new to the shelter so we are still getting to know her. She is a very sweet girl and she enjoys spending time with people. Honey is nervous and is still getting used to her surroundings. She absolutely loves other dogs, and gains confidence when she is with dogs. She is looking for a home with another dog to show her the ropes! Honey has a nice level of energy and we think she will enjoy walks in the woods or play time in the yard. Honey is not suited for city or apartment living, she prefers to live in a quieter area. Since she is nervous, we think she would do best in a home with kids over 10. If you think she could be the dog for you, please email adopt@baypathhumane.org today!
8 month old male mixed breed (12#)
Meet Charlie! This young guy is ready to meet his new family! Charlie is a shy, but sweet pup. He loves to play with squeaky toys! Right now the leash is new to Charlie, and he is not quite sure what to do on leash. He may do best in a home with a fenced in yard as he learns how to walk on leash. Charlie takes some time to get to know new people, so he is looking for a home with older teens (13+) and adults. If you think Charlie could be for you, please email adopt@baypathhumane.org today!
1 year 5 month old male mixed breed (10#)
Meet Rocky! Rocky is a little dog full of personality! He is young and energetic, but is still learning about walking on a leash. Right now he is enjoying his exercise in our fenced in areas! Rocky is a very nervous dog and needs time to warm up to new people. He is looking for an adult only home. We are looking for an owner with dog experience for Rocky. If you are interested in this little guy, please email adopt@baypathhumane.org today!
3 month old female domestic shorthair
Meet Margaret! This cute kitten is shy, but friendly on her terms! She is looking for a home with older teens and adults only. She must go to a home with a friendly cat companion. Cats really help her come out of her shell! If you are looking to open your home to a shy kitten, please email adopt@baypathhumane.org today!
8 year old male mixed breed (80#)
If there's one thing that Chance deserves more than anything in his life, it's exactly what his name says! This handsome older gentleman is new to Baypath and is quite the charmer. He has quickly become a staff and volunteer favorite. How could you resist that salt and pepper beard?! Chance is looking for a quiet, comfy home to spend his golden days of retirement. He is a typical lab mix; very sweet, gentle, and loves to be in the company of his people. He is more than happy to hang out with you on the couch or sniff around in the yard. Chance has an old injury to his right front leg, so he gets around using only 3 legs and struggles to go on long walks. He is an active dog, just needs to pace himself! Chance would be happiest as the only dog in his home to absorb all your attention. If you think Chance is the dog you have been waiting for, please email adopt@baypathhumane.org today!
7 month old female domestic shorthair
Are you looking for a friend for your cat? If you are, then meet Heliconia! This petite girl is looking to find her new family. She is looking for a quiet home with patient people - no kids for her! She is shy of people, and is not quite sure what she thinks of them sometimes; however, she does love other cats, and is looking for one to call her new best friend! We are hoping that Heliconia's new cat companion will help her feel safe, and come out of her shell. While she does enjoy being pet occasionally, we do think it is possible she could always be shy, and will mainly be your cat's best bud. If you are interested in sweet Heliconia, please email adopt@baypathhumane.org today!
7 year 2 month old female mixed (25#)
Marcie is a special girl looking for an experienced home to set her up for success in the best way possible. Like a lot of us humans, Marcie deals with significant anxiety, and can become high-strung or hyper-aware of noise or movement in her environment. She deserves a family that is empathetic to her challenges and can help her work through these anxieties. She has had great success on anxiety medication to help her progress, along with a lot of quiet "zen" time spent with staff and volunteers to relax. Marcie is looking to live with only adults, preferably those that have had experience living with terriers and can happily accept her quirks. She does needs to be the only dog at home and really needs a home/neighborhood where she doesn't see dogs as she is very reactive to them. So if you are looking for a dog to walk through a neighborhood or take to the park, Marcie would not be a fit. She just prefers to be with humans! Due to her disposition, she's looking to live in a quiet area without much going on. A fenced-in yard would be a huge bonus, like a oasis of her own! She would not do well in an apartment setting or busy neighborhood. Once Marcie settles in, she is a sweet girl and loves her people. Check out her little video! If you think you could be the family Marcie has been waiting for, please email adopt@baypathhumane.org today!
5 month old male
