Join Bay volunteers in caring for distressed animals

The sweet, skinny, young adult black cat pictured here was recently found abandoned on Huntmere Drive in Bay Village. This is one of multiple cats and kittens that the Friends of the Bay Village Kennel are currently assisting. FOBVK reminds residents to advise the Bay Village Police Department of all animal-related issues.

The city's current kennel only houses dogs, which are transported to the Cuyahoga County Dog Kennel if not claimed. Cats and kittens must fend for themselves on the streets of Bay Village. 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.

Until further notice, FOBVK will continue to assist distressed animals through the use of generously donated monies for the purposes including: spaying and neutering, other veterinary care, food, medications, etc.

FOBVK continues to have the support of a benevolent benefactor willing to fund the construction of a new kennel facility within the city. However, this facility would be owned by the city with conditions requiring city participation and cooperation. FOBVK would be happy to volunteer to help with the operation and maintenance of this kennel.

Visit our website at and visit our table at the Bay Cares Fall Fest on Saturday, Oct. 4, 11 a.m.-2 p.m., at the Bay Village Branch Library for more information and free giveaways while supplies last.
