I’m just looking for a human who will feed me spaghetti and meatballs and a partner in crime to eat them with.

Drew Lou

I’m a sweet young man looking for a human to spend furrrever with.


Major is an outgoing dog who would love an active lifestyle: hiking, jogging, swimming... you name it! Major is ready to do it!


I’m ready to steal your heart, just like I stole Christmas!


This beautiful girl came to the Cheyenne Animal Shelter as a stray and was completely terrified. Within several days, she has blossomed into an outgoing girl!


This handsome man promises not to bring any drama – just love!


Woodstock is a brave little bird who will bring a smile to your face with his crazy antics.


My personality is as unique as my look. I’m cool and hip, and I know it!
