Cheyenne Animal Shelter

The mission of the Cheyenne Animal Shelter is to enhance the quality of life for animals and people through compassion, respect and education. For over 40 years, the Cheyenne Animal Shelter has extended the hand of kindness to neglected and abused companion animals in the city of 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. Thank you for visiting us and we hope to see you in person someday.

Adoption Process

Stop by the shelter and speak to one of our staff members about the things you are looking for in a pet. The Adoption Center at the Cheyenne Animal Shelter is open more days than 95% of other shelters in the country. We’re open 361 days a year! One of our adoption counselors will fill out an Adoption Application for you by asking 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. You can take a pet into a “Get Acquainted Room” to spend some time with it or possibly bring it outdoors (usually dogs on a leash). Please listen carefully to our staff for tips and advice as well as 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 $5-$150 depending on the type of pet and the age of the animal.

Please note: After submitting an adoption application, we recommend that you follow-up with the shelter to ensure they have received your adoption application from Petango. The shelter’s contact information can be found in the left hand column. Thank you.
