CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - December 7th marks the first day of the Cheyenne animal Shelter’s “Empty the Shelter” holiday adoption drive, and they’re encouraging the community to adopt a new companion for the holidays.

“Here at the Animal Shelter, one of our main tenets is to preserve and promote that human-animal bond. So, we’re really here easer to help people really live their best life by helping match them with a pet that’s going to suit their needs,” said Animal Shelter CEO Britney Tennant.

The Animal Shelter partners with Bissell Pet foundation for these adoption drives.

There’s a $25 adoption fee for all adult dogs, buy one get one free with kittens, with all adult cats and other critters being free.

The Shelter currently has around 44 pets available for adoption, including all different kinds of unique critters.

“Right now in the animal shelter we have several Guinea Pigs like my friend Jennie here, a couple of rats, several rabbits - rabbits are actually the third most common animal in animal shelter - and we also have some fish available for adoption as well,” said Tennant.

The adoption drive will last a total of eleven days, concluding on December 18.
