CASPER, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - The Casper Humane Society welcomed eight dogs of all different sizes to their no-kill shelter this week. These dogs came from Texas.

Sally Reinhart, the Casper Humane Society board president, said Texas has a high kill rate and is glad these dogs are safe here in Casper. She added that the small dogs they picked up will add variety to what is at the shelter now. The Casper Humane Society usually sees small dogs get adopted faster than larger ones.

“I think people like smaller dogs because they’re easier to take care of and bigger dogs need a big fence and a yard,” Reinhart said. These dogs coming in were fully taken care of with vaccines and other medical care before they were picked up. “They fit in great with the population we already here,” Reinhart said.

The Casper Humane Society also brings in animals from Metro Animal Control and other areas of the state when they can. The last time they got in animals from another state was before the outbreak of COVID-19.
