The Big Fix
The Big Fix, a proactive program of the Cheyenne Animal Shelter, offers low-cost neutering to income-eligible families in our community.
Each month 15-30 animals are altered through the Big Fix, slowly reducing the number of unwanted animals that are turned in to the shelter each year. The program targets low-income families and individuals that do not utilize veterinary services because of economic barriers and offers financial assistance for neutering of cats and dogs.
The Cheyenne Animal Shelter would like to thank the following Veterinary Clinics for helping with the Big Fix program: Avenues Pet Clinic, LaZoetry Veterinary Clinic, Cheyenne Pet Clinic, Broadmoor East Veterinary Clinic, Frontier Veterinary Clinic and Tri State Veterinary Clinic.
For more information about the Big Fix program, call 307-286-0177.
Feral Cat Program
Cheyenne is a community with many feral cats. These animals are not accustomed to contact with people and are too wild to be handled. These felines are often cared for by concerned citizens who have taken it upon themselves to feed these animals. Often, these caregivers do not have the financial resources to provide veterinary care for their feral community.
In an effort to reduce the overpopulation of cats in our community, and to help the caregivers of feral cat colonies, the Cheyenne Animal Shelter offers an affordable program to help neuter and vaccinate feral cats. Through the Feral Cat Program, feral cats are neutered, vaccinated, tested for disease and then are released back into the wild by their caregivers. These cats are free of deadly diseases, can no longer reproduce and are vaccinated against rabies.
The cost per animal to participate in our Feral Cat Program is $30. This fee includes neutering, testing for FIV and FeLuk, and administering vaccinations, including rabies.
To make an appointment to have a feral cat neutered, call 307-632-6655 ext. 24. Appointments fill quickly, so make sure to call at least one day ahead of time. A limited number of humane traps are available at the Cheyenne Animal Shelter, call first to ensure availability.
