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.

6 month old male domestic shorthair / mix in foster
Bear is currently in a foster home, please email nbaltas@baypathhumane.org for more info about his adoption process! Bear is a shy, bobtail kitty who is making great strides in his foster home. Doesn't he have those "adopt me" eyes? He's described as a curious little fellow who likes to explore the room and peruse the different toys available to him. His favorite is a wand toy with a stuffed mouse at the end - the two are a package deal! Bear is looking for a patient, adult home that already has another friendly cat companion to help him feel more comfortable. He loves to play and enjoys being pet once he bonds to you. He is perfectly content to lounge next to you and share some quiet time, maybe even binge watch some Netflix! He is not a fan of being picked up. If you think your home is right for Bear, please email nbaltas@baypathhumane.org!
6 month old female domestic shorthair / mix
** Runts has special medical needs, please call the shelter for more information, 508-435-6938 ** Runts is an absolute doll ready to find her forever home. Her foster says she loves to be with her people and adores being the center of attention. She is a high energy bundle of joy that would do great alongside another cat in the home to help her expel all that energy! With patience, we think she'd do fine in a home with young children. When she first meets you she may play coy, but it won't take you long to win her affection - a few chin scratches and ear rubs and you'll be forever hers! Runts is expecting your visit - she hopes to see you soon!
8 month old female domestic shorthair / mix in foster
Cumin is currently in a foster home, please email nbaltas@baypathhumane.org to find out more about her adoption process! Cumin is a sweet but very timid kitten. What she lacks in confidence, she'll make up for in affection once she gets to know and trust you! She will shy away from any new person initially, though she is super playful and loves her treats (hint hint...this is a way to win her over!) Once comfortable, she'll open up bit by bit, and it's so rewarding to watch her blossom with you. Eventually she'll allow you to pet her and will eat treats straight from your hand, so with the right amount of time and love, we know she'll continue to surprise. She will thrive in a home with adults who have another cat already who can show her the ropes and help her gain confidence. Please email nbaltas@baypathhumane.org for more information about meeting Cumin!
8 month old female domestic shorthair / mix in foster
Paprika is currently in a foster home, please email nbaltas@baypathhumane.org for more information about her adoption process! Like her sister Cumin, what Paprika lacks in confidence she will make up for in affection once she knows and forms a bond with you. She truly enjoys the company of her humans - she loves to be pet and will gladly sit in your lap for some loving once she's comfortable. Like any kitty, wave a wand toy to engage her and she'll play until she drops. She's never said no to a treat, either! She would do great in a home with adults and teenagers, and she also must go to a home with a cat companion to help her gain confidence. Since she is in foster, please email nbaltas@baypathhumane.org for more information about meeting Paprika!

Hey, you! Yes you! Are you looking for a playful companion kitty who can keep you on your toes? Keep reading about our sweet Gilly! Gilly is a young, playful, spunky cat. She's been through a lot of transition in her life so naturally it takes a little patience for her to trust you and your intentions. Once she knows you, you're in! She's thrilled to see you every time you enter the room! She'll twirl and spin around you to get your attention. Given the chance, she'll even hop right into to your lap to knead and purr away. It's just pesky, loud noise or sudden movements that make her nervous, so she's looking to relax in a quiet, adult home without any other pets. How could you blame her? She is just looking for someone to be her companion and let her live her best cat life at her own pace. If you think you could give our Gilly the wonderful forever home she's been waiting so patiently for, please email kfarrell@baypathhumane.org!
Helpful hint: Please bring copies of your vet records if you're considering adopting. This will help speed up your adoption process.
