My story

You can fill out an adoption application online on our official website.

Mattie came into the care of LAWS almost a year ago underweight and with really painful stomatitis and ulcers in both eyes. She was a mess but she never failed to show us love and appreciation for our help. With the help of our amazing vets and volunteers, we have nursed her back to health; each day she continues to get stronger and her personality grows more and more! Mattie will likely always have an injured left eye that will need to be treated with medications, however removing all her teeth has vastly improved her stomatitis and she now loves to eat both hard and soft food, and is steadily gaining weight! She does not groom herself well, and will need her human to brush her as much as possible, but as her health improves she may get better at thisl. As Mattie’s health has improved, she has really come out of her shell! She wants nothing more than to cuddle with you all day long, and if you have other pets she will put up a fight to have you all to herself. Because of this, she prefers to be the only animal in the home, and is not a good candidate for a house with small children.

 At Laramie Animal Welfare Society, the first step to adoption is completing an adoption application on our website Once submitted, your application will be reviewed by our adoption team which typically takes up to 7 days.  Keep in mind, the kitten/cat you’re interested in when applying may be adopted and no longer available by the time your application is approved. We do not place animals on hold.   Pending approval, your application is valid for 6 months. Also pending approval, you will receive contact information, so that you may inquire about the personalities of specific animals.   Due to COVID-19, we are highly encouraging foster homes and adopters to speak with one another via phone or video chat to limit in-person contact. If meeting in person at a foster home or at our adoption center, everyone is encouraged to wear masks and socially distance.   Adoptions for individual animals will occur by private adoption appointment. Because we are 100 % foster-based, appointments are scheduled pending staff, foster home, and vetting schedules.  Should you want to proceed with the adoption, a brief appointment will occur at our adoption center to sign adoption paperwork, receive medical records, and pay the adoption fee.   

**Dog/Puppy applications -  Because of the large volume of dog/puppy applications we are receiving these applications may take longer to process, please be patient. We do not do first come first serve but we place the dog/puppy in the best suited home. If you have questions about the Dog/Puppy process please email**
