Partners in Rescue
Too often, dogs and cats in shelters are at risk of euthanasia simply due to shelter overcrowding and a lack of resources. To help prevent this – and to stem the tide of pet overpopulation in the southern United States – Baypath transports cats and dogs up from Florida, Georgia, South Carolina, Texas, Indiana, and West Virginia.
We have longstanding partnerships with great groups on the ground in these communities, and their advocacy and ours help bring these animals north to our shelter so that we can fulfill our mission of matching so many loving families with these great animals in need.
We’re so honored to have the unique privilege to take in and care for so many wonderful cats and dogs that may otherwise not have a chance.
Our Commitment to the Program
Our Animal Transport Program is more than just transport – it’s truly a partnership. We provide behavior support, supplies, and cover the cost of transport. And while our trusted sending organizations do so much of the work on their end, the efforts continue on our end once these cats and dogs arrive.

Our Animal Transport Partners
Baypath is so grateful to our dedicated animal transport partners. They do a wonderful job understanding our needs and requirements and matching us with cats and dogs who will work best in our program. They do a thorough job assessing them behaviorally and medically and ultimately traveling hundreds of miles to get them their shot at a forever home.
Featured Partner: Iron Paws
We began working with this Texas-based transporter in 2021. They work with several great shelters and rescue groups in Texas to bring dogs from their more overpopulated region up to the Northeast where they often have a better chance at getting adopted.
We have worked with Iron Paws on dozens of transports to date and are so grateful for their partnership.
