  1. Fill Out a Volunteer Application: All prospective volunteers must fill out a Volunteer Application. You may call the shelter to request one at 307-213-3058 or download the Volunteer. Fill out the information and either bring it with you to the shelter, or fax it to 307-634-7361. Or if you prefer, mail the completed Volunteer Application to the Cheyenne Animal Shelter – 800 Southwest Drive Cheyenne, WY 82007, Attention:  Volunteer Manager.
  2. Attend an Orientation Session and Tour: Once we receive your Volunteer Application Packet, the Volunteer Manager will contact you to schedule an Orientation Session.  Orientation allows you to become more familiar with the Cheyenne Animal Shelter and gives you the opportunity to decide in what areas you would like to volunteer.  The Volunteer Manager will then schedule an interview with you. Once your interview is complete, you will attend a training session on your area of interest.
  3. IT’S OFFICIAL: After training is complete, you will become an “official volunteer” with the Cheyenne Animal Shelter and will remain so as long as you continue to volunteer on a routine basis.
