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.

Available dogs (7)

10 year old male mix
Meet Scout! This handsome boy is looking for a quiet home to live out his retirement. He came to us from a partner shelter where he lived with 3 other young pups. He may do well living with another dog, but would not enjoy and active or crazy pup! He is most content when he can spend the day napping in a cool and comfy place. He does still get excited for a quick stroll around the block, but his marathon days are over! Scout is about 75 lbs and is looking for an adult only family. If you are looking for a sweet senior pup, please email us at adopt@baypathhumane.org to learn more about Scout and our current covid process!
2 year old male mix
Meet Caesar! This active 50lb pup is looking for a family who is ready to play! He loves going for walks, and is also happy to entertain himself with a good squeaky toy! Caesar is looking for an adult only home with some dog experience. He is smart and food motivated, so would love to go to training classes with his new people! If you think Caesar is the guy for you, please email adopt@baypathhumane.org for more info on our covid process!
2 year old female mix
Meet Ruby! This sweet lady is looking for a home to call her own. She loves spending time with people, whether its hanging out on the couch or going for a brisk walk. She would prefer to be in a home with adults or kids over 10 years of age. She is about 45 lbs and estimated to be 2 years old. She came to us from Texas where she lived with 3 other dogs. If you think this cutie could be the right fit for you, please email us at adopt@baypathhumane.org for more information on our current Covid process!
2 year old female mixed breed in foster
Meet Willow! This sweet girl is ready to meet her new family! Willow has been in foster and enjoys spending time with her foster mom and her small dog friends. While she loves to play with small dogs, she gets overwhelmed by large dogs. Willow is blind and mostly deaf, so she needs an adopter who is understanding of her. She does not like to be left alone, and has some anxiety that we have been working on in her foster home. She is a very sweet girl! If you think Willow could be the right dog for you, please email foster@baypathhumane.org for more info!
1 year old male mixed breed
Please email adopt@baypathhumane.org for more information about Petey and our COVID-19 adoption process! Petey is best described as a big goof ball! He came up from Texas and is ready to find his forever home. Petey is large and in charge, weighing about 70 lbs. Petey is young, rambunctious, and strong like an ox. He's looking for an moderately-experienced dog owner who is willing (and eager!) to keep up with his energy level and size. Petey would greatly benefit from training classes to help him gain confidence, show off his intelligence, and form a bond with his person. He might enjoy doing agility work! He loves to be active and go on walks and has done very well with a harness to help him from pulling too hard. He seems to enjoy hanging out with other dogs and may do well living with another pending a proper introduction, but he does have a significant prey-drive so he wouldn't do well living with cats or small critters. Due to his strength and his size, we’re recommending a dog-experienced household with adults and kids older than 13 years. If you think Petey could be the right match for you, please email adopt@baypathhumane.org for more on our COVID adoption process!
3 month old male
If you are looking to adopt a puppy, please email us at adopt@baypathhumane.org! Due to COVID-19, we have had to change our process for all adoptions. We do not currently have any puppies available for adoption. We do not know when we will have puppies ready for adoption. In preparation for when we do have available puppies, we will be starting to collect and pre-approve applications now. We will keep these applications on file to match with future puppies as they become available. ** Please note, most of our puppies will be medium to large-sized dogs! ** Please email adopt@baypathhumane.org with any questions about this process!
2 year 2 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!
