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.

10 month old male hound mix in foster
Hot Toddy trotted up all the way up from Kentucky and came from a litter of 13! Can you imagine? The poor mom! According to his foster in KY, Toddy loves squeaky toys and playing with other dogs. He's practically mastered house-training and is very food motivated. He can be understandably hesitant in new situations after such big transition, but his confidence is growing and he'll never turn down a treat, which helps! He would greatly enjoy being at home with another dog to romp around with pending an introduction, or even dog friends to have playdates with in the future. Because of his boisterousness, he'd do best with an active, mature family that has had some dog experience and is ready to help him adjust to all the new sounds and smells. Hot Toddy is beating the winter blues in a temporary foster home, so please email foster@baypathhumane.org to learn more about his adoption process!
4 year 1 month old female mixed breed in foster
Cute and spunky Cornbread appreciates the simple things in life, like loving to retrieve and run around with her squeaky toys. They make her so darn happy! She also enjoys spending her time outside in the fresh air and going for walks, which she's hoping you'd join her on. In the house she makes a wonderfully lowkey companion. She is crate trained and doing very well with housetraining. Cornbread will do best in a home with older teens and adults that have some dog experience. Her new family will need to be understand and patient with her as she takes a little time to trust and get used to new people. She prefers a quiet, predictable home without a lot of visitors. She would feel most comfortable in her home as the only dog (and will bark at them while out on walks) and she is not a fan of cats. Cornbread is lucky to be hanging out in a temporary foster home, so please email foster@baypathhumane.org for more information about her adoption process!
1 year 9 month old male mixed breed in foster
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 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 loyally 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 look forward to answering any questions you may have!
11 year 4 month old male mixed breed 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 foster@baypathhumane.org for more info about this big love and his application 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!
