Prices & Packages

Our adoption fees help to offset the cost of evaluation, housing, feeding and medical care for the thousands of animals that need our help. Because we are a nonprofit organization, donations close the gap between the cost for care and the adoption fee. It is only through the generosity of our donors that we have the resources to help so many animals.

Adoption Package Includes: Worth roughly $370

  • Neuter/Spay: $250
  • Microchip and national registration: $50
  • One month of pet health insurance for $1
  • At least one set of vaccinations: $40
  • De-worming: $30
  • Pet information
  • A certificate for a free veterinary exam

Thank you to the following veterinary clinics for participating in the free veterinary exams for adopters:  Avenues Pet Clinic, Broadmoor East Veterinary Clinic, Cat Clinic of Cheyenne, Cheyenne Pet Clinic, Dell Range Animal Hospital, Frontier Veterinary Clinic, Tri-State Veterinary Clinic, and Yellowstone Animal Hospital.

Identification will be necessary to receive the reduced fees; discount is not applicable in our gift shop.

Sponsored Adoption Fees

On occasion animals will have a special adoption fee because they are a sponsored pet. This means that a generous community member has given money towards that animal to lower their fee. All sponsorships are marked on kennel cards so make sure to check them out!


The Cheyenne Animal Shelter relies on public donations to perform the services we can provide. Any donation you can provide to help us find homes for homeless pets is greatly appreciated.
