This Year’s Dog Jog Color Run: Presented by Wags & Menace Make a Difference Foundation

This year’s Dog Jog Color Run has been scheduled for Saturday, August 24th, and we couldn’t be more excited! Much like last year, the color-run race will have a 5k color powder course to run/walk, or a 1 mile (non-color powder) course to walk with your furry friend so that they can also participate in the day! We will also have vendors (18 of them, to be exact) to browse and games for you and your pup!

Tickets are $25 per person and include a race bib, t-shirt and swag bag. Registration begins at 7:00am, the 5K Color Run begins at 8:00am, and the 1 Mile Dog Walk begins at 8:30am.

To purchase your tickets, click here.

After the race, head on over to Freedom’s Edge Brewing Company for their Asanas and Ales does the (Downward) Dog Days of Summer from 11am-1pm. $20 buys you an hour of yoga and a pint, and $5 of every spot sold will benefit the Cheyenne Animal Shelter!

Once you’re all downward dog-ed out, head on over for Mary’s Mountain Cookies – Cheyenne‘s Grand Opening, where they will have a special Dog Paw Cookie for the Dog Days of Summer. The best part? 100% of profits from this cookie will benefit the Cheyenne Animal Shelter!

Later that evening, meet us at Danielmark’s Brewery and Tap Room from 4pm-7pm where $1 from every beer sold will benefit the Cheyenne Animal Shelter! This is the perfect pre-game spot before Edge Fest 2019 Featuring K Flay – an event you won’t want to miss!

August 24th is a packed day, and what better way to start the day than with the Dog Jog Color Run? We’ll see you there!

The Dog Jog is very important to the Cheyenne Animal Shelter, as the event happens during a time when the Shelter is bursting at the seams with animals. Every ticket purchased and dollar donated is truly appreciated, as it all goes toward helping to take care of the many orphaned animals in our care. Thank you so much for supporting the Cheyenne Animal Shelter!

Thank you to 2019’s presenting sponsor, the Wags & Menace Make a Difference Foundation!

Email [email protected] for more information.

This year’s Discers for Whiskers event was held on Saturday, July 13th, 2019, and was a fabulous day for everyone involved!  Thanks to our incredible board and Cheyenne Animal Shelter supporters, we had the maximum number of people registered for the frisbee golf tournament, and ended up raising over $14,000 on behalf of the animals in our care.  Aside from the tournament, the day included a fabulous BBQ lunch provided by our board member, Richard Mincer, an adoption booth with available pets from the Shelter, and plenty of laughs and fun in the sun!  We had a great time at this year’s Discers for Whiskers, and we are already looking forward to next year!

Thank you to our sponsors!

Fur Ball

The Fur Ball is Cheyenne’s premiere pet-friendly gala which raises money in support of the animals and programs at the Cheyenne Animal Shelter.

These funds allow us to maintain critical programs to care for and protect homeless and unwanted animals in our community, ensure that all animals adopted from our shelter are spayed or neutered, investigate animal cruelty and neglect and to provide funding for low-cost spay/neutering through our Big Fix program.

On the evening of April 13th, 2019 we want you to join us at Little America and become part of our density… we mean “destiny!” We’ve been having fun re-visiting the iconic movie “Back to the Future” planning fun all around its kookiness!

Jump into our “time machine” and catapult into the future… a perfect future where all animals find good, loving homes!

At “Bark to the Future,” you’ll enjoy tasty appetizers, libations, a delicious dinner along with live and silent auctions to help the over 6,000 animals that will be in the care of the Cheyenne Animal Shelter this year.
