The Fairfield Bay Animal Control Shelter is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization established in 1994 by The Fairfield Bay Animal Protection League. The Fairfield Bay Animal Shelter provides shelter, care, resource, and adoption services for the many domestic cats and dogs that stray, become lost, or are abandoned each year in our area..    We depend heavily on donations for our shelter.


  • To provide warm, nurturing surroundings for animals at the shelter and to seek loving, compatible homes for those in our care.
  • To provide medical care to dogs and cats at the shelter, within policy guidelines, and to ensure that all of our animals are spayed or neutered and properly vaccinated for adopters.

If you are looking to provide a forever home for a loving friend and companion, please consider one of the many cats and dogs at The Fairfield Bay Animal Control Shelter. If you are interested in helping and supporting The Fairfield Bay Animal Shelter’s efforts, please.

Feral Cats/Kittens

According to Ordinance, there is no hold time for healthy feral cats. We do work with trusted farms that will place our altered ferals into their colonies. We do this to avoid euthanizations as well as to give our ferals the freedom they are so used to. We do this only with permission from these farms as well as City and County acceptance. We do NOT release ferals back into FFB City Limits.
