Especially for Pets Charitable Program Supports Baypath Humane Society

Especially for Pets has donated $8,641 to the Baypath Humane Society of Hopkinton, the first quarter Charity Nail Clipping recipient of 2015. The program involves offering free pet nail clipping services to customers in exchange for donations that are sent to a local animal welfare organization.

“We’re so grateful to all Especially for Pets’ customers who had their pet’s nails trimmed this year,” says Elizabeth Jefferis, Baypath Humane Society’s Executive Director. “These donations have truly helped our animals, present and future.”

The funds raised through the program enabled the shelter to build a new enrichment space for the animals living there. “For a long time, we dreamed of creating a home-like room that allows our animals a place to relax away from their enclosures,” Jefferis says. “This new space offers a break from what can sometimes be a hectic shelter environment.”

Jefferis notes that the quiet space will be set up like a living room and provide a refuge for anxious dogs, an opportunity for one-on-one bonding time with people, and a comfortable place for potential adopters to get to know the animals.

The Baypath Humane Society of Hopkinton is open daily from 11:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. The organization is dedicated to providing shelter, humane treatment and loving homes for stray or unwanted companion animals and making a positive impact on pet overpopulation. To learn more, visit
