Lost & Found
Pets on this page are not available for adoption.
The Cheyenne Animal Shelter is actively looking to reunite them with their families.
- Pets having NO ID — rabies tag, owners tag or microchip will be held for 3 days once they are picked up per our city/county ordinances, after which they become the property of the Cheyenne Animal Shelter.
- Pets having an ID — a current rabies tag, currant owners tag or a current microchip will be held for 5 days once they are picked up per our city/county ordinances, after which they become the property the Cheyenne Animal Shelter.
If one of these pets belongs to you, please call 307-632-6655 to schedule a reclaim appointment. You will need to bring a current driver license, proof of ownership of the pet i.e. a rabies certificate or veterinary records in your name and a photo of the pet.
Lost Pet Tips
- Check with neighbors, mail carriers, neighborhood watch captains, and other individuals familiar with your area. Let them know your pet is lost so they can keep an eye out.
- If you don’t find your pet immediately, take a break and try again later. Pets often return to familiar areas. If you see your pet, bend down into a squatting position and call the pet’s name. Remember to keep your voice light and happy, and to praise your pet for coming back. Do not punish your pet as this will teach him or her to ignore your calls.
- Check local shelters. Visit the Cheyenne Animal Shelter every day. Pets are held for three-five days once they are picked up, after which they become the property of the shelter.
- Check Facebook. We have a Cheyenne Animal Shelter lost and found page run by some very amazing volunteers. https://www.facebook.com/groups/LostandFoundCAS/?ref=bookmarks
Here are a few other local lost and found Facebook pages we are not affiliated with to check for and post your pet on.
- Newspaper ads: When placing a newspaper ad remember that the ad will not appear until the next newspaper cycle.
- Posting Notices: When posting a notice, include a picture of the pet and description including color and size. If you have a purebred pet and no photo, look at the library for a picture of a similar pet. Place notices in neighborhood gathering places such as grocery stores, laundry mats, veterinary offices, libraries and schools.

Animal Adoption faq
How do I adopt a pet?
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 application 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.
Adoption Package Includes (worth roughly $370):
Microchip and national registration: $50
One month of pet health insurance for $1
At least one set of vaccinations: $40
A certificate for a free veterinary exam
Can I put a pet on hold?
If you choose not to adopt, the $25 fee becomes a donation to the Cheyenne Animal Shelter!
