This camp, now in its eighth year, is an excellent educational opportunity for children. Campers learn how to treat animals with compassion and respect. Children attending camp interact with a variety of animals from the shelter and the community, learn about animals from local experts, and participate in games, crafts and educational worksheets. The cost is $175 per camper or $150 per camper if more than one child is enrolled.

Strange Remedy Benefit Concert

Strange Remedy is a group of longtime friends and local Cheyenne doctors who occasionally put down their stethoscopes and scalpels and pick up their guitars! You’ll jam to their cover music of your favorite rock hits of the 60’s, 70’s and 80’s. You’ve never seen your doctor like this before! Strange Remedy’s Rock and Roll – it’s just what the doctor ordered!

Stay Tuned for the 2017 Date!

Fur Ball

The Fur Ball is Cheyenne’s premiere pet-friendly gala which raises money in support of the animals and programs at the Cheyenne Animal Shelter.

These funds allow us to maintain critical programs to care for and protect homeless and unwanted animals in our community, ensure that all animals adopted from our shelter are spayed or neutered, investigate animal cruelty and neglect and to provide funding for low-cost spay/neutering through our Big Fix program.

The 14th Annual Fur Ball is upon us! On April 14th, 2018, Little America will be transformed into an “It’s 5 o’clock somewhere” state of mind for “Dogaritaville!”

There will be tasty appetizers, island entrees, margaritas and of course, the largest live and silent auctions to help the nearly 8,000 animals that will be in the care of the Cheyenne Animal Shelter this year.

We count on the kindness and generosity of our supporters and we thank you that you always come through for the animals! We hope “Dogaritaville” will be as successful as past years!


Fur Ball 2017 – Woofstock was a groovy time and a resounding success raising $198,000. Thank you to our Celebrity Pet, Daisy, for sharing her adventures and being such a trooper at the event!
