How do I adopt?
If you are interested in any of these pets, please fill out the following Adoption Questionnaire. The e-mail you attached to your questionnaire will provide a link to get scheduled for a “meet and greet” once approved. If you don’t have an e-mail a member of our staff will contact you on the status of your questionnaire.
We generally require you and your current pets to meet the new member of the family in a controlled environment prior to adoption.
Cash and credit cards are accepted for adoption payment only.
For monetary donation we accept checks, cash, and credit cards.

Animal Adoption faq
How do I adopt a pet?
As Wyoming’s largest animal adoption agency, the Cheyenne Animal Shelter has the widest selections of cats and dogs, rabbits, small mammals and more in Wyoming. Visit our Shelter today or log on to our website to view available animals. We have three large dog adoption rooms, “cat alley” and critter space.
While visiting the Cheyenne Animal Shelter, a pet adoption counselor will help you find the pet that is the best match for your family and lifestyle. After you select a pet, you’ll complete an adoption questionnaire and, once approved, a Cheyenne Animal Shelter staff person will begin the adoption process, which often takes as little as an hour. Once you have reviewed all adoption paperwork, you’ll pay the adoption fee. Then, you’re ready to take your new furry family member home.
