The Cheyenne Animal Shelter Foundation, which was established in 2006 ensures the long-term sustainability of the Shelter.
The Cheyenne Animal Shelter’s mission is to enhance the quality of life for animals and people through compassion, respect and education. Each year more than 6,000 animals pass through the Shelter’s doors and almost 3,000 animals are adopted. This is possible through donations provided by the community, adoption fees, city and county funds, and money provided by the Cheyenne Animal Shelter Foundation.
The Foundation Board invests donations made to the Foundation – currently at approximately $5 million and returns $41,000 to the Shelter each month to assist with daily operational costs.
