CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Barking dogs at the Casper Humane Society wait for community members to come in and bring them home. In 2020, they got  184 dogs and puppies and 188 cats into new homes.

They’ve also rescued guinea pigs, lizards and rats. “We even had a pig this year that got adopted,” said Sally Reinhart, the president of the Casper Humane Society board.

They were closed to the public for a while to prevent the spread of COVID-19. They also couldn’t hold most of their fundraisers, but one worked out well.

“We had a mailing for a COVID ball so people didn’t have to come in person,” Reinhart said.

This year, they spent $40,000 on vet fees to get the animals spayed and nurtured. Reinhart adds they also pay for dental treatments or anything they need.

She adds they’ve had a good year despite the challenges. “It was hard having to close but all in all we are happy with how it turned out and grateful it wasn’t terribly hard on us,” Reinhart said.
