The Fairfield Bay Animal Shelter

The Fairfield Bay Animal Shelter is operated by the City of Fairfield Bay. The purpose of the Animal Protection League (APL) is to prevent animal cruelty by promoting enforcement of animal cruelty laws, humane education, and by maintaining our local Animal Shelter as a temporary refuge for lost, abandoned and unwanted cats and dogs from within the Fairfield Bay community.

You Can Help by Volunteering to:

  • Serve on the Board of Directors of the APL
  • Walk Dogs – Groom Cats and Dogs
  • Help socialize the Animals
  • Transport Animals to and from Local Vet Clinics
  • Perform General Office Duties
  • Do Laundry
  • General Cleaning – Indoors
  • Monetary Donations:(donations are tax-deductible)
  • Membership Dues
  • Memorials
  • Bequests


When adopting a cat or kitten, or a dog or puppy from our Shelter, the animal will have been neutered or spayed, vaccinated against rabies, and we now test our adult dogs for heartworm –
all this is included in the adoption fee

Adoption Fee –

  • Dog $50.00
  • Cat $45.00

Please note that FFB residents must obtain a city license for their dogs and/or cats
