Here we have Barrett Georges, Jacksyn Rolf and Gabby Yocum. These 9 year old neighbors spent all summer working at a lemonade, granola bar and pop tart stand to raise money for CAS. They donated over $570 to the shelter the day before school started!!

In-Kind Donations: You can also help the shelter by donating gift cards from WalMart, Sams Club, Target, PetCo, Murdochs and PetSmart.  Gift cards allow us to purchase supplies to take care of the animals while saving valuable space at the shelter.

If your company offers a matching donation program, we hope you’ll remember the Cheyenne Animal Shelter.
