Other Programs

 The Cheyenne Animal Shelter offers several programs and assistance for the Laramie County community – from finding a missing pet, animal control services, help for low cost spay and neuter, micro-chipping, and of course the facilities the Cheyenne Animal Shelter houses.

 

 

Safehouse Shelter Boarding

When a person enrolls in Safehouse, the shelter provides very low-cost boarding to their pets in an effort to try to keep pets with their people. We offer boarding for $30 per pet. Pets enrolled in this program may be visited by their people during their stay, and are provided with daily food, water, walks and socialization, and enrichment.

This program offers spaying and neutering and rabies vaccination of pets at no additional expense to the owner, and low-cost microchips to the owner in addition to the boarding fee.

 

Comea Shelter Boarding

When a person enrolls in COMEA, the shelter provides very low-cost boarding to their pets in an effort to try to keep pets with their people. We offer 30 days of boarding for $30 per pet, or 4 hours of volunteerism at the shelter in lieu of boarding fees. Pets enrolled in this program may be visited by their people during their stay, and are provided with daily food, water, walks and socialization, and enrichment. This program offers spaying and neutering and rabies vaccination of pets at no additional expense to the owner, and low-cost microchips to the owner in addition to the boarding fee. (COMEA boarding contract is required for enrollment.)

Information on Microchipping

Microchips work like an identification tag. But, microchips cannot fall off, get lost or be forgotten. They are tiny, harmless devices that are implanted between an animal’s shoulder blades. They transmit a signal with a number that can be detected by special wands. The number corresponds to a number in a database, linking the animal to its owner’s contact information. If an animal gets lost, anyone with a wand can link the microchip to the owner’s contact information and get him or her home quickly.

Choosing to microchip your pet is an inexpensive, responsible and often life-saving decision. We will microchip your pet for just $30, which includes the initial registration to the owner. Just bring your pet to the shelter between 11 a.m. and 6 p.m. The process only takes a minute, and no appointment is necessary.

 

Food Assistance

The Cheyenne Animal Shelter provides a food assistance program to help people of the Laramie County Community during rough times. We have a fairly large community to assist, therefore we need to make sure we always have some food available. In order to better control the amount of food given out, we have established strict guidelines to be followed Shelter wide. In order to be considered for the Food Assistance Program, you must:

  • Be at least 18 years of age
  • Have Valid formal identification
  • Have NOT received food assistance in the last three (3) months
  • Understand that you will NOT be eligible to adopt from the Cheyenne Animal Shelter for six (6) months
  • Understand that Cheyenne Animal Shelter can only provide the food that is donated to us. CAS cannot accommodate specific food requirements. CAS does not provide any canned or wet food (dog or cat) and does not provide litter under the Food Assistance Program.
