Cheyenne Animal Shelter Seeks Additional Funding

to Cover the Cost of Services


As you have probably heard, the Cheyenne Animal Shelter Board of Directors is asking both the City of Cheyenne and the Laramie County Commissioners for a significant increase in funding to properly cover the cost of providing animal control and sheltering services to the community.  
To better explain, we have prepared a list of frequently asked questions above.  Please take a look and then consider contacting your city councilman or county commissioner and ask him or her to support this much-needed community service. 
We so appreciate your support and generosity on behalf of the over 6,000 animals we care for each year!

2019 Critter Camp Registration is now open!

Critter Camp is the Cheyenne Animal Shelter’s day camp for children ages 7 to 12 years old. This camp, now in its ninth 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, per week or $150 per camper, per week if more than one child is enrolled. Registration includes a t-shirt, camp supplies and a field trip. Campers will need to bring their own lunches.
