Here is the list of Cheyenne Animal Shelter's Pets of the Week!

Stop by and fall in love with these cuties!

Also make sure to check out their upcoming events!


Punky is a 4 month old male Domestic Shorthair/Mix kitten who is a kind, adventurous soul! He's looking for someone who will let him live his best life - could it be you?


Hershey is a 3 year old female Domestic Shorthair/Mix who is very friendly and looking for her forever companion! She just wants love and attention, and wouldn't mind being your favorite Valentine! Come meet this sweet girl!


Oreo is a 7 month old female Domestic Shorthair/Mix who is a bit on the shy side, but mostly just because she would rather nap than socialize (we couldn't agree more!) Ask to see if Oreo is what is missing from your life!


Hindenberg is a 14 year old male Domestic Shorthair/Mix. 14 years has helped him to gain a ton of wisdom and life experiences, and he would prefer to spend the rest of his days relaxing in a quiet home with a spot to sit in the sun. Come meet this cool guy!


Spike is an 8 year old male Retriever, Labrador/Mix who loves his small humans just as much as his dog friends! He may be an older boy, but watch out - he has some spunk! Please ask to meet with Spike today.


Domino is 6 month old male Terrier, Pit Bull/Mix who loves to run and jump (as most puppies do!) He can be a bit rude with kids, so he can't go home with any children under the age of 12. Domino would benefit with a patient owner who can train him to grow up to be the best dog he can be!

Water Lily

Water Lilly is a 20 year old Aquatic Turtle who would love to teach you how to slow down to stop and smell the roses. Slow and steady wins the race!


Tim is a 10 year old male Chihuahua, Short Coat/Terrier/Mix who is just looking for someone to give him love and attention. He is a bit shy, but will warm up to anyone who has a soft voice and lots of pets to give! Come meet this elderly gentleman today!

Upcoming Events:

And Bingo was his Name-O! For the entire month of February, join the Downtown Development Authority and the Cheyenne Animal Shelter for a month of downtown shopping and donations that could score you a big prize! Pick up a Bingo card at any of the participating downtown businesses or the Downtown Development Authority Office. Squares are marked off by taking a photo with each participating business, bringing in a donation for the Cheyenne Animal Shelter or by purchasing an item in the store. Completed bingo cards can be dropped off at the participating businesses or the Downtown Development Authority Office! Bingo sheets must be returned by March 6th – drawings for the prizes will be on March 9th!

Puppy Love – A Date with your Dog! This Valentine's Day season just got a little bit sweeter! On Saturday, February 8th, from 1-4pm, join the Cheyenne Animal Shelter and Freedom's Edge Brewing Company at the brewery (1509 Pioneer Avenue) for a day of Puppy Love! $20 covers the entire cost of a date day with your dog, a professional digital photo by Jennifer Rood Photography AND a pint of your favorite beer! There will be Valentine's Day crafts for you and Fido to do together, snacks for you and your 4-legged friend, and, most importantly, beer! Space is extremely limited for this special Valentine's Day Date with your Dog, so sign up now before it's too late at! As an added bonus, we will also have a professional photographer there to take Valentine’s Day photos of your furry friend in front of an Instagram-worthy Valentine’s Day backdrop! A digital photo is included in your ticket price, or, if you just want to “do it for the gram” without buying a Puppy Love Ticket, a $10 donation will score you just the digital photo. Head to to register for either the date or just the photo shoot itself!  Questions? Shoot Haylee Chenchar an email at We love love! But we love Puppy Love even more! We'll see you on February 8th!

Fur Ball – The Great Catsby! "A little party never killed nobody," so mark your calendars for our 16th Annual Fur Ball! At “The Great Catsby,” you’ll enjoy libations and a delicious dinner along with our live and silent auction to help the nearly 6,000 animals that will depend on the Cheyenne Animal Shelter this year. You won’t want to miss this year’s Fur Ball, so reserve your seat soon! Visit our website at to buy your tickets or register your table. The pets in our care are counting on kind hearts such as yours to provide love and support in their lives because every seat filled means another life saved. This year is especially exciting, as we are also celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Cheyenne Animal Shelter! To properly recognize this milestone, we are truly pulling out all of the stops for this year's Fur Ball - of all the events this year, THIS is the one to be at! Costumes welcome as we step back (and forward!) into the '20s... we can't wait to see you!
