The mission of the Cheyenne Animal Shelter is to enhance the quality of life for animals and people through compassion, respect and education.
Cheyenne Animal Shelter
Who we are
For 40 years, the Cheyenne Animal Shelter has extended the hand of kindness to neglected and abused companion animals in Cheyenne and Laramie County. Today, we are involved in an ever-expanding effort to accomplish a mission that goes beyond sheltering the homeless and unwanted pet population. Our goal is to find a home for every adoptable companion animal brought to our door. To reach this goal, we must increase the number of pets we place and decrease the number of pets relinquished. We hope to achieve this goal through ongoing community relations programs, such as humane education, offsite adoptions and outreach.
What You Should Know Before Adopting a Pet
Having pets carries financial, physical and emotional responsibility. Although some believe they require just food and water, much more is involved. Love, companionship and care promotes life long happiness.
Stop and think about how many offsping and each generation an unspayed or neutered animal produces. The numbers are staggering.
Stop by the shelter and visit our terrific animals. You can speak to one of our staff members about the qualities you are looking for in a pet. They will ask you questions about your home environment, family members and pets in the home to determine if a particular breed or adoptable animal at the shelter might suit you. We have an open adoption policy that means we don't turn away anyone for an adoption (except in very rare cases where we believe the animal could be in danger.)
You can take a pet into a holding area to spend some time with it or possibly bring it outdoors (usually dogs on a leash). Our staff will provide tips, advice and recommendations while you are getting acquainted with some of the animals.
If you feel there is a match, you can take your new pet home. Costs vary from $10-$150 depending on the type of pet, size and age of the animal.
Remember, because all of our pets are already spayed or neutered, will receive a registered microchip before they go home, and come with a certificate for a free veterinary exam, you can't get a nice pet any cheaper.
Call the shelter if you have any questions. (307) 632-6655.
Thank you for visiting us and we hope to see you in person someday!
