This Friday, the Cheyenne Animal Shelter is lowering its adoption fee for any black cats (any black in their coats) to only $5 on Friday, June 1.Because summer is on its way, thus bringing with it hundreds of homeless kitties, the shelter is working to make room and encourage the public to adopt cats and kittens. By neutering every animal that leaves our doors, we are also working to curb the number of kittens that become orphans every spring.

“With this promotion, we hope to inform the public that adopting a neutered animal from us, instead of buying from a pet store, breeder or ‘accidental’ litter, is the humane and responsible choice,” said shelter Executive Director and CEO Rick Collord.  Rick broke the news of the special on KING FM Tuesday morning, listen to the audio here;

Adoption fees for cats regularly run between $35 and $65. However, the Cheyenne Animal Shelter invests over $100 in every animal it adopts out. That includes $30 for neutering, $25 for a microchip and national registration, $15 for vaccinations plus all the boarding costs.

The public is invited to stop by the shelter every day of the week from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. to visit with adoptable animals.


“The mission of the Cheyenne Animal Shelter is to enhance the quality of life for animals and people through compassion, respect and education.”
