Fur Ball

The Fur Ball is Cheyenne’s premiere pet-friendly gala generating over $250,000 in support of the animals and programs of 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.

Fur Ball 2017 -Woofstock was a groovy time! Thank you to our Celebrity Pet, Daisy, for sharing her adventures and being such a trooper at the event!
