CELEBRATING OUR 50TH ANNIVERSARY
50 years and thousands of lives saved in Cheyenne and Laramie County.
What are the requirements to adopt a pet?
Are adoption fees negotiable?
Why do I have to do a dog-to-dog meet?
Do I have to get the pet I’m adopting from CAS spayed/neutered?
If you don’t have what I’m looking for, how often should I come in?
Will you let me know if my cat/dog I surrendered gets adopted?
If you euthanize my cat/dog will you tell me?
I can’t afford cat litter, will you give me some?
Will you vaccinate my pets?
Are you a No-Kill Shelter?
For dogs, our live release rate is over 90 percent! For cats, however, we continue to struggle with the feral cat and neonatal populations during kitten season. Because of this, we are constantly looking for more foster homes to help save the under-aged kittens, as well as funding to expand programs such as our Feral Cat Program, TNR, Barn Cat Program, and other community resources as funding allows. We have seen our live-release rate for cats steadily increase over the years and will continue working to achieve ever-higher live release numbers!
Do I need an appointment to visit with an animal?
Yes. Adoptions are by appointment only. Applications for dogs, cats and critters must be turned in to receive an email where you can schedule your appointment. Open walk-throughs are from 3-5:30 p.m. daily. We are open most every day of the year with the exception of New Year’s Day, the 4th of July, Thanksgiving and Christmas.
What is included in adoption?
Does the Shelter ever deny an adoption?
How often do you get puppies?
Can you call me if you get a specific breed?
All adoptions are on a first-come, first-served basis. The Adoptable Animals page on our website is updated in real-time, and we recommend checking there frequently if you have a specific breed you are looking for.
