Mark your calendars for the biggest event of the year:


is a 5 month old male Domestic Longhair/Mix who is very curious about life! He is looking for his forever home - could it be with you?


is a 6 month old male Saint Bernard/Mix puppy who will live up to his given names. While new things are a bit scary to him, he will learn to be fearless against them as he grows older! Come visit this legend today!


is a 3 year old female Domestic Shorthair/Mix who is a friendly little thing looking for her new best friend! She loves to be petted and to eat treats - come let her do that at your house!


is a 2 year old male Border Collie/Mix who is a staff favorite! He loves to run and play, and deserves a wonderful forever family! Due to his herding tendencies, Smiles can't go home with small children under 10 or small animals under 30 lbs. Despite this, we know he is going to make someone's life complete!


is a 14 year old male Domestic Shorthair/Mix who is just looking for a quiet home to retire to. Come meet this fellow today!


is a 10 month old female Akita/Mix who is as cute as she is furry! This floof would prefer a home without other dogs, but if you decide she's the one for you, you will quickly realize she is all you need! Come meet her today!

Barn Cat Esmeralda

is a 1 year old female Domestic Longhair/Mix who doesn't want to stay in your house - she would rather protect you from all of the mice outside! Come meet her and let her patrol your property!


is a 1 year old female Retriever, Labrador/Border Collie Mix who is tons of fun! She has lots of energy and love to give, and will give it to basically anyone and everyone but cats (she doesn't like those.) Come meet this sweet girl!

Purr-fect Silent Auction Item Basket Ideas

Fur Ball is upon us and we can barely contain our excitement!  Will hope to see you Saturday, March 14th at The Great Catsby for a night of food, fun, and excitement!  Best of all?  All proceeds from this gala event fundraiser go directly towards the nearly 6,000 animals in our care at the Cheyenne Animal Shelter!

If you can’t attend this year but still want to show your support, please consider putting together a basket of goodies for our silent auction!  Every dollar raised from this silent auction counts, as it is used to buy essential items such as milk for our kittens or life-saving vaccines for our puppies.  Stumped for basket ideas?  Never fear – our Marketing Director has put together a handy list of basket themes!  Check them out below!  If you are kind enough to put together a basket, you can either bring it out to the Cheyenne Animal Shelter or we would be more than happy to pick it up from you!  Please contact either our Donations Coordinator (Karen Staples) at 307-271-5962 or at [email protected], or our Marketing Director (Haylee Chenchar) at 307-278-6195 or at [email protected] and we can coordinate a time to pick up your very generous contribution.  As always, thank you so much for your support of the Cheyenne Animal Shelter.  Our animals (and our staff) so appreciate you!
