Cheyenne shelter at full capacity, waiting list owner surrenders
This is a surprise, but not too much of a surprise when you look at the calendar.
On their Facebook page, the Cheyenne Animal Shelter announced yesterday that they were busy with the recordings and had to put themselves on the waiting list. Less than a month ago they had an incredibly successful “Empty The Shelter” event with only one dog left. The shelter is now completely full.
You have done a lot of recordings since December 18th.
Since then we have recorded:
11 transfers from other animal shelters
21 Abandonment of the Owner
17 Litter and public levy
38 Animal control, confiscated custody or stray pick-up
As of yesterday they have almost 80 dogs in their shelter. This is usually a really difficult time of the year for shelters in general with heavy uptake. Especially after the holidays and people who don’t want the pets they were given.
They ask that you make sure you have tags on your pets and that they are microchipped to reduce the number of strays they have ingested so you can reclaim your pet immediately.
The Cheyenne Animal Shelter has also adjusted its opening times for adoptions this week. They are open to the public from Monday to Saturday from 12:00 p.m. to 5:30 p.m., with regular opening times from Monday to Saturday from 12:00 p.m. to 6:00 p.m. Adoptions are only possible by appointment.
If you are looking for a new furry friend, make sure to stop by the Cheyenne Animal Shelter to see all of the great potential new family members that they have up for adoption.
