Our goal is to help you and your new pet have a happy life together. Our adoption counselors are on-site daily to help you find the dog or cat who will be the best fit for their family. Last year alone, Baypath Humane found loving homes for more than 1,200 dogs and cats.
We are fortunate to have a dedicated team of volunteers, who ensure that the animals get plenty of daily exercise and playtime. The shelter also offers a stimulating environment for the animals. The cats can sun themselves in the screened in climbing area, while the dogs can enjoy a large fenced play area as well as miles of wooded trails. We also create tailored plans for dogs & cats who need more attention.
No matter how nice the accommodations, living in a shelter can be a very stressful experience. Our staff is dedicated to finding the best solution for each individual animal’s needs. This may include: Teaching agility skills to give an anxious dog something fun to work on; Providing positive reinforcement to a frightened dog or cat; Investing in training classes to help a dog become a better companion; or socializing a stray cat.
Animal education and outreach
We host Girl Scout troops and corporate groups who are interested in community service. In addition, our staff and board members participate in outreach events focused on creating awareness of animal adoption, animal overpopulation, and pet care.
