In 2011, my husband and I adopted a dog, and last year we adopted two cats. I cannot say enough about Baypath - the people that work there, especially Cornelia, Julie and Liz, are incredible. They are so caring, knowledgeable, passionate and committed to what they do! Kudos to everyone at Baypath for being able to handle the tough jobs they have so well!

A few weeks ago, we adopted a dog from Baypath Humane Society and he has been such a wonderful addition to our family! This was our first time adopting a dog and our experience at Baypath was excellent! Everyone there was very attentive, friendly and able to answer all of our questions to help us make the final decision to move forward with the adoption. All of the animals at the Baypath facility seemed well-cared for and happy. We would highly recommend Baypath Humane Society to anyone interested in adopting an animal!

We adopted our sweet black lab mix girl from Baypath over 2 years ago. The people there knew her well, including an issue she was having being overly reactive on leash. I felt as though they were upfront about both her wonderful traits (a loving personality, sweetness) and the things she needed to work on. They even followed up to see how she was doing and asked any advice we would have for adopters dealing with dogs being overly reactive, to see if we could help others.

I am currently fostering a litter of kittens for this shelter and I am always impressed by their efficiency, knowledge, and concern for the animals.

The staff is always reachable when I have questions, though my questions are few since they provided such good written documentation and directions when I first volunteered to foster. They use their web site and Facebook page to communicate, too.

I have also made donations in the past of animal supplies, blankets, and towels and they were always extremely receptive and thankful.

The organization seems well-run and efficient. I wish someone would leave them a large enough donation to increase their space. It amazes me how much they accomplish with what they have.

I adopted my 1 year old yellow lab from Baypath and I can't say enough about how happy I am with her. The staff were all extremely helpful and dedicated to finding the perfect match of me and Chloe. I would highly recommend anyone who's looking for a pet to go to Baypath as my experience with them was exceptional.

Baypath has done so much in the community for animals in need. I have rescued several cats from this facility and they are knowledgeable, supportive, and devoted to the animals. Have had a great experience, and also have many friends who have had great experiences adopting here. So happy to have an organization like this caring for these animals and making great adoption matches.

I began my Baypath experience as a Volunteer several years ago. Since that time, have adopted several dogs, fostering additional dogs whenever our circumstances have permitted. My involvement and enthusiasm about Baypath's mission has inspired several friends and family members to adopt Baypath cats and dogs, which has been a joy.

A few years after I began as a Volunteer, I became a Board member. I have found this work engaging, meaningful, and a true labor of love. We Trustees work to support Baypath, bringing our assorted professional backgrounds and interests together. We work diligently to organize various fundraisers throughout the year, designed to appeal to supporters of all ages, and growing our outreach efforts, as we continue to spread the word about the positive impact Baypath Humane Society of Hopkinton seeks to make in the community!

Baypath Humane Society of Hopkinton has been a force in the region since its inception in May 1977, and our wonderful Staff love nothing more than helping cats and dogs in their moment of need, getting to know all of their traits, likes, dislikes; what makes them unique - and in turn finding a wonderfully well-matched home for therm. I feel so fortunate to be able to be affiliated with this truly special Shelter, and am proud indeed of our fantastic, hard-working Staff, whose genuine love and passion for animal rescue is evident in everything they do!!!

Expand Baypath's physical space, which will in turn permit us to serve all the more animals in need, and to provide additional services to the community - as we continue to seek ways to broaden our outreach efforts!

Over the past ten years, I have adopted two dogs from Baypath Humane. Both dogs were in great health and had been assessed very well by the staff. They were able to show me which dogs were good with children, house trained, etc and more recently, which would be likely to work well with my senior mother. They are also very accommodating. I asked to take my new dog home before he was neutered and return him a week later for his vet visit. Baypath worked with me on this to get my sweet guy out of the shelter environment.

From a business perspective, this business person is continually impressed with the fundraising efforts and strong community connection Baypath has forged over the past 10 years. When the have a compelling need for supplies or a dog with a compelling story that needs extra help to find the perfect home, the Baypath Facebook community consistently steps up to the plate.

I am very impressed by this organization and hope to continue adopting my dogs from them for many decades to come.

We are so happy with our experience with Baypath. We went on Mother's Day to look for a cat. They were so helpful, friendly and caring. They were very professional in their approach to adoptions. It is quite evident that everyone there loves animals and they are very invested in making sure that all their animals find good homes. I would recommend them to anyone! I would also like to thank them for taking such great care of our little Bianca before she found her "forever home" with us!
