We welcome your comments—of whatever nature or position— and will take effort to integrate your opinions and interests as we prepare content for the launch of this site. Something to share? Let us know!
Our goal is to determine areas of common concern and interest, identify and target opportunities for improvement; and use this awareness to build communal relationships between the dog guardian and non-dog guardian communities of Fairfield county. Further, we seek to foster productive associations amongst these groups and Town of Fairfield, CT government.

Izzy: anxious to hit Jennings Beach... but patiently waiting for her (too, too slow) guardian to catch up...
“January 19. Arthritic and weak, my old dog Hattie stumbles behind me over the snow. When I stop, she stops, tipped to one side like a folding table with one of the legs not snapped in place. Head bowed, one ear turned down to the earth as if she could hear it turning,
she is losing the trail at the end of her fourteenth year. Now she must follow.
Once she could catch a season running and shake it by the neck till the leaves fell off, but now they get away, flashing their tails as they bound off over the hill. Maybe she doesn’t see them out of those clouded, wet brown eyes... maybe she no longer cares. I thought for a while last summer that I might die before my dogs, but it seems I was wrong. She wobbles a little way ahead of me now, barking her small bark, then stops and trembles, excited, on point at the spot that leads out of this world.” —Ted Kooser
You can brighten the long, lonely day of a needy dog:consider volunteering at a shelter. Your used but servicable linens, towels, bathmats, or cushions can provide comfort while he waits. Need help affording veterinary care? click HERE • Find low-cost spay neuter services: click HERE

To think about: American taxpayers spend more than $1 billion annually to fund municipal animal shelters.
In those facilities, 14,000 animals are killed each day, often brutally: even in archaic gas chambers...
many within merely hours of their arrival: why are they called shelters?
