Stop by the shelter and speak to one of our staff members about the things you are looking for in a pet. The Adoption Center at the Cheyenne Animal Shelter is open more days than 95% of other shelters in the country. We’re open 361 days a year!
One of our adoption counselors will fill out an Adoption Application for you by asking questions about your home environment, family members and pets in the home to determine if a particular breed or adoptable animal at the Shelter might suit you.
You can take a pet into a “Get Acquainted Room” to spend some time with it or possibly bring it outdoors (usually dogs on a leash). Please listen carefully to our staff for tips and advice as well as recommendations while you are getting acquainted with some of the animals.
If you feel there is a match, you can take your new pet home. Costs vary from $5-$150 depending on the type of pet and the age of the animal.
We also advise that you check with your landlord before adopting a pet, because although you are allowed to return a pet to the Cheyenne Animal Shelter, we do hope that the pet is allowed to stay in your home.
Remember, because all of our animals are already neutered before they are adopted, you can't get a nice pet any less expensive AND you can take pride in the fact that you are providing a home for an orphaned animal.
It is the highest priority of the Cheyenne Animal Shelter to adopt out healthy and behaviorally sound animals to our caring community. Our adoption fees help to offset the cost of evaluation, housing, feeding and medical care for the thousands of animals that need our help. We do our best to keep our adoption prices reasonable while generating income to support our goal of caring for adoptable animals until we can place them in a loving home. Because we are a nonprofit organization, donations subsidize the gap between the cost for care and the adoption fee. It is only through the generosity of our donors that we have the resources to help so many animals.
Our cat adoption fees range from $35 to $65 and our dog adoption fees range from $75 to $150. If any sponsored animals are available, their adoption fese will be noted at the shelter. You'll find that the adoption package at the Cheyenne Animal Shelter is a great value.

Microchip and national registration
