Cats and kittens are presently left on Bay Village streets to fend for themselves. If you are concerned with the safety of Bay Village’s pets, please join us to ensure that the city of Bay Village undertakes the construction of a new kennel.
The Friends of the Bay Village Kennel has secured the funding from a Bay Village family to construct a brand new kennel facility. The current kennel now only houses dogs, which if not claimed, are transported to the Cuyahoga County Dog Kennel, which has had in the past a 48% kill rate (per public records), cats and kittens continue to fend for themselves on the streets of Bay Village.
In the past, meetings with the mayor have not proven to be an effective means of resolving this issue. Further, the mayor has made it clear that she is unwilling to have public discussion on this issue. Until further notice, FOBVK will endeavor in other areas.
FOBVK will continue its efforts to assist distressed animals through the use of generously donated monies for purposes including spaying, neutering, other veterinary care, food, medications, etc.
FOBVK also continues to have the support of a benevolent benefactor willing to fund the construction of a new kennel facility within the city. This facility would, however, be owned by the city with stipulations and / or codified regulations requiring city participation and cooperation. FOBVK would, then, be happy to volunteer TO HELP with its operation and maintenance.
