Adoption Frequently Asked Questions

How do I adopt a pet?
As Wyoming’s largest animal adoption agency, CAS has the widest selections of cats and dogs, rabbits, small mammals and more in Wyoming. Visit  our shelter today, or visit Adoptable Cats, Adoptable Dogs or Working Cats to view pictures and profiles of all pets in need of homes! Visit our website to see available animals or visit the adoptable animals at the Cheyenne Animal Shelter. We have three large dog adoption rooms, “cat alley” and critter space.

While visiting the Cheyenne Animal Shelter, a CAS adoption counselor will help you find the pet who is the best match for your family and lifestyle. After you select a pet, you’ll complete an adoption application and, once approved, a Cheyenne Animal Shelter staff person will begin the adoption process, which often takes as little as an hour. Once you have reviewed all adoption paperwork, you’ll pay the adoption fee. Then, you’re ready to take home your new furry family member.

Why do I have to pay an adoption fee?
Our adoption fees help to offset the cost of evaluation, housing, feeding and medical care for the thousands of animals that need our help. Because we are a nonprofit organization, donations close the gap between the cost for care and the adoption fee. It is only through the generosity of our donors that we have the resources to help so many animals.

Adoption Package Includes: Worth roughly $370
Neuter/Spay: $250
Microchip and national registration: $50
One month of pet health insurance for $1
At least one set of vaccinations: $40
De-worming: $30
Pet information
A certificate for a free veterinary exam

Why do you have different adoption fees for the animals?
We determine each pet’s adoption fee based upon their age, breed and suitability with children and other pets, as well as other factors. Dogs and cats with a higher adoption fee leave a financial legacy for those animals who need extra help – whether they need extensive medical care or just a little more time to find a loving home.

Can I put a pet on hold?
We are more than happy to place a 24-hour hold on a cat or dog you’re interested in adopting but must be done in person. The hold fee is only $25, and can be paid by credit card or cash. If you decide to adopt that pet, the $25 will be applied directly to his/her adoption fee.

If you choose not to adopt, the $25 fee becomes a donation to the Cheyenne Animal Shelter!

I already have a dog at home. Can I bring him to meet the dog that I want to adopt?
Absolutely! We strongly encourage “meet-and-greets,” where you bring your resident dog to meet the dog you plan to adopt. An adoption counselor will assist you with the dog-to-dog introduction. Your dog MUST be up-to-date on immunizations before we can allow an introduction with one of our adoptable pets. Unfortunately, we cannot do any off-site “meet-and-greets.”

How many pets do you adopt out each year?
In 2015, the Cheyenne Animal Shelter found homes for more than 2,347 dogs, cats, rabbits, birds and other small animals. We are proud to be the state’s oldest and largest pet adoption agency, thanks in large part to our generous sponsors and donors.

How long do pets remain up for adoption?
At the Cheyenne Animal Shelter, there is no “time limit” for cats and dogs that are up for adoption, and we find homes for every adoptable pet under our care. Some pets are adopted within a few hours, while other pets remain in our care for months!

Do you adopt out purebred cats and dogs?
Absolutely! Many of our adoptable pets are purebreds. Since new pets are made available for adoption every day, we encourage you to check our adoptable dogs and adoptable cats pages often.

Can I adopt a pet as a gift for someone?
We do not adopt out pets as surprise gifts to family and friends. At the Cheyenne Animal Shelter, we believe it is very important for individuals to choose their own pet, so they can find the perfect match for their family, lifestyle and expectations. However, we do offer Cheyenne Animal Shelter gift certificates. To order, contact (307) 632-6655 or development@caswy.org.
