Mark your calendars for the biggest event of the year:
is a 9 year old male Domestic Shorthair/Mix who is not the kind of cat who needs a lot of attention - he prefers to do his own thing. If you're wanting a cat that will be in your face. well, that's not him! He's used to coming and going as he pleases, and may even be happy in a protected barn as long as he gets to come in when the weather gets cold. He doesn't mind a soft pet from time to time, just as long as he can maintain his independence. Come by to see if this is the cat for you!
is a 5 year old female Terrier, American Pit Bull/Retriever, Labrador Mix who will prove to you that her love for you will last much longer than diamonds, gold and fancy cars! She can't go home with children, but you won't need any with her in your life! Race down to the Shelter to meet her today!
is a 9 year old male Domestic Shorthair/Mix who, along with his brother, Freddy, is a retired "neighborhood roamer." They are both looking for a forever family who will let them chill and hang out. If you have room in your house for two retired sprinters, ask the front desk to meet them today!
is a 2 year old male Border Collie/Mix who came to us from the Panhandle Humane Society. He was a staff favorite there who stole a ton of hearts! Smiles is very energetic and would love an active family. He can't share a home with children or small animals because of his herding tendencies, but trust us when we say he would be the perfect addition to your life!
is a 3 year old female Entlebucher Mountain Dog/Mix who is very loyal and protective! She can be a bit skittish when you meet her but warms up quickly with treats! Sassy is very selective of other dogs and extremely barrier and leash reactive. She would benefit greatly from basic obedience training and boundary setting. Sassy must meet everyone she will be going home with - both two and four legged, but would still love nothing more than to go home with you!
If you have a life-threatening emergency, please contact 911.

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!
