Baypath Humane Society warmly welcomes the community to help celebrate the grand opening of the shelter’s Real Life Room on Sunday, September 20 from 9:30 am to 11:30 am at 5 Rafferty Road in Hopkinton.

The Real Life Room, a multi-functional modular structure, serves as an enrichment space for dogs and cats that will enable the shelter to help more animals in need and increase their chances of a successful adoption. The project was funded by Especially for Pets Charity Nail Clipping Q1 donations and proceeds from the 2015 Baypath Fur Ball.

“Until now, we’ve had to be creative in finding places where we can socialize dogs or where people can meet animals they’re considering adopting,” said Baypath Humane Society Executive Director Elizabeth Jefferis. “With the Real Life Room, we have the safe, quiet sanctuary we need to accomplish all of this and more.”

Designed to look like a living room, the Real Life Room is a comfortable space that’s ideal for one-on-one bonding time with the animals. The shelter will use it for dog training and playtime, adoptions, and more.

Baypath invites the community to tour the Real Life Room and the shelter, enjoy some refreshments, and learn more about Baypath’s mission. “We are excited to share our vision for how the new structure will benefit animals and adopters alike,” Jefferis says.

Space is limited for the event, so please RSVP to Baypath Board Member Sandra Gittlen at [email protected] or 508-393-4194. For all pets’ safety, Baypath requests that guests leave their pets at home.
