Buttercup is an eight-year-old Pomeranian mix with lots of life left to live. May she live it with you?  All eight pounds of her?


Candie is just two months old!  She's looking for the perfect start in life in a home that will be hers forever! 


Jerry is a four-month-old shepherd mix.  He's a bit shy and needs someone to help him find his confidence so he can be the best puppy possible!


Isaiah is a seven-year-old neutered male tabby cat.  He's a very sweet boy! 


Rio is a three-year-old hound mix who can be rather dog selective depending on the temperament and play style of the other dog.  He is "rough and tumble" and loves, loves, loves chase!


Marie is friendly little lady who would prefer a quiet home with lots of good places to nap, catch some sun and watch the birds fly around.  She is spayed and is seven-years-old. 


Theresa is a two-month-old Labrador/retriever mix.  One of a litter here, the "T-Squad" is ready to meet you. What begins with "T?" Terribly adorable! 


Pete is a 2-and-a-half -year-old neutered male.  Would you just look at that face?

Annual Special Events

Critter Camp

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.

2019 Critter Camp registration is not currently available.

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.

Dog Jog Presented by Wags & Menace Make a Difference Foundation

The Cheyenne Animal Shelter held its Dog Jog at Holliday Park on August 4th, 2018. This fun 1-mile walk and/or 3-mile color powder 5k race (you’ll have color powder thrown on you at different stations along the route) presents dog owners the opportunity to spend a Saturday morning with their best friend while at the same time, helping to change the lives of countless, homeless animals in Cheyenne. We’ll also have vendors to shop at and games for your pup!

The Dog Jog is very important to the Cheyenne Animal Shelter as it comes at a time when the Shelter is bursting at the seams with animals. Each and every precious dollar is needed to take care of these orphaned pets.


Thank you to 2018’s presenting sponsor, the Wags & Menace Make a Difference Foundation!
