Volunteer Application Process

Thank you! We love that you are interested in volunteering to help us help the animals we serve here at the Cheyenne Animal Shelter and can’t wait to meet you!  Whether you enjoy real “hands-on” experience working with animals or would prefer an office atmosphere, teaching children the humane treatment of animals or if you are great interacting with the public – we have a job for you! The list of current opportunities changes monthly and is available at each orientation.

All volunteers are asked to make a minimum six month commitment to the shelter of at least two hours per week. Learn more about the various volunteer opportunities the Cheyenne Animal Shelter has to offer.


Our Volunteer Program has a variety of opportunities for volunteers of all ages, talents, and abilities!

We provide training at every level of volunteering and have ongoing training and educational opportunities throughout the year.

Please note that all volunteers will be asked to submit a $20 administrative fee upon registration ($5 for kids 9 and under). This fee helps offset the cost of your t-shirt, name badge, and other costs associated with training.

The first step in becoming a volunteer is to attend a Volunteer Information Night.
Information Nights are typically held a few times a month and must be attended by anyone who is interested in moving forward in the program.

These sessions usually last about one hour and include information on the various programs the shelter offers, as well as the various volunteer opportunities. You don’t need to register or apply in advance – you can just show up!

Upcoming Volunteer Information Night Schedule:
Monday, April 30, 2018 at 6:30 pm
Saturday, May 19, 2018 at 10:00 am
Tuesday, May 29 at 6:30 pm

If you decide you would like to become a volunteer after attending Info Night:

  • Complete the Volunteer Application that will be emailed to you.
  • Register for a two-hour New Volunteer Orientation shift, and submit your $20 administrative fee ($5 for kids 9 and under).
  • Complete the New Volunteer Orientation Shift.

During Orientation, we will issue your volunteer shirt, get your name badge ready, and show you how to clock in for your shifts. We will also give you a brief refresher tour of the shelter, and provide training for some “behind-the-scenes” work that helps us keep things moving along smoothly at the shelter, such as laundry, dishes, paperwork, and more.

  • Register for and attend a Dog Walker, Cat Socializer, or other position training. Dog Walker or Cat Socializer training is the first step for all animal-handling positions.
  • Start volunteering at the shelter!
