Lost & Found Pets
Thank you for viewing our lost pets page. The animals showcased on this page were taken in as strays within Laramie County and are not available for adoption. If you have lost your pet, you must come to the Cheyenne Animal Shelter to submit a lost report. Because we receive so many lost animals on a daily basis, we cannot confirm whether or not your animal is here by telephone or email.
If one of the pet’s listed on this page matches the description of your missing pet, please visit the shelter in person immediately to positively identify your animal.
If you do not see your missing pet on this page, please check frequently. Due to the large amount of animals we receive on a daily basis, we cannot guarantee that this page will show all lost animals in our building.
All stray animals are held for a three day period. After the three days, your pet will become property of the Cheyenne Animal Shelter and will no longer be listed on this page. Please reclaim your animal as soon as possible to minimize impound fees.
Starting on January 1st, 2019, the Cheyenne Animal Shelter will require all lost animals that are being reclaimed to have a current rabies tag. If the animal does not have a current rabies tag, the owner is required to pay a $25.00 deposit, which will be returned to the owner within 72 hours of bringing in the proof of a rabies tag. This is stated in Cheyenne city ordinance and is required – by law – to help prevent beloved animals in the Laramie County community from contracting the deadly Rabies virus. As a pet owner in Laramie County, a rabies vaccination and tag is also considered their city license and is required to be worn.
In order to reclaim your animal, you must bring proof of ownership (rabies vaccination, medical documents, etc) and a current ID.
