Baypath seeks help fostering dogs

Baypath dog Bella

Baypath Humane Society in Hopkinton is seeking a foster home for Bella and other dogs.

Baypath Humane Society is putting out a call for community members to care for a dog in their home temporarily until the shelter finds them a permanent home.

Dogs like Bella (pictured above) have a tough time staying in a shelter, and will benefit greatly from staying in a loving home with a patient person who can help her become more comfortable. She tends to be frightened of men, and needs some love and kindness in a home with adults or teens.

“Fostering dogs is an incredible experience,” said longtime Baypath volunteer Leslie Doyle. “There is no better feeling than when a frightened dog comes out of their shell and starts to relax and trust you.”

Baypath needs volunteers on a short-term basis who can care for puppies in need of socialization, dogs recovering from or awaiting a medical procedure, shy or scared dogs who need a place to unwind, and dogs who need help learning new skills like leash walking or house training.

Baypath covers medical costs through the shelter veterinarian and is happy to provide food and supplies. The shelter also provides expert behavioral support to help set up each dog for success. Learn more at baypathhumane.org.
