While each contract varies in scope, the services remain relatively the same.  The Cheyenne Animal Shelter Animal Control Unit investigates possible violations of improper care and inhumane treatment of animals in our community as well as safety violations in our community from potentially dangerous animals by:

Enforcing state laws and local ordinances pertaining to animals;

Educating our community on the responsible care and treatment of animals in our homes, neighborhoods and adjoining lands;

Sheltering and caring for stray, lost or abandoned animals;

Assisting other law enforcement agencies with cases when potentially dangerous animals are present;

Investigating reports of animal cruelty and neglect;

Responding to calls regarding injured, lost, stray, sick or abandoned animals;

Investigating reports of potentially dangerous animals and those that have caused harm to a human or another animal; and

Removing deceased animals from public roadways.

Top priority calls include:

  • Dangerous/vicious animals that may cause immediate harm to a human or another animal;
  • Assisting other law enforcement personnel (police/fire) with cases involving animals;
  • Injured domestic animals needing urgent medical care
  • Abused/neglected animals

While we certainly understand an animal’s excessive barking, trespassing or relieving its waste on your property or a public walkway, or being exercised off-leash by its owner or caretaker can be frustrating, calls of this nature fall lower on our priority list.  An officer will follow up with you at our earliest convenience and we appreciate your patience and support!


When contacting our dispatch office, please have the following information available:

Date, time and location of incident

Description of incident – please include what occurred and what animals/humans were involved, if applicable:

  • A description of the animal you are reporting (if known: breed, color, approximate size)
  • The address where the animal resides, if known; and
  • The owner’s name, address and telephone number, if known.
