CHEYENNE, Wyo. (Wyoming News Now) - Nationally, we have seen an increase in animals being surrendered to animal shelters. However, the Cheyenne Animal Shelter is seeing quite the opposite.

Between July 1st and July 19th, the Animal Shelter saw 183 adoptions of cats, dogs, and other fuzzy friends. Additionally, In just the span of one week, 87 animals were adopted out of the Cheyenne Animal Shelter.

Niki Harrison, of the Cheyenne Animal Shelter, says these numbers are higher than usual, but it’s not all about the numbers.

“Whatever the reasons are, we’re really excited. And we don’t always measure our success here at the animal shelter by the number of animals we intake or adopt, It’s really based on the quality of life that can be provided and matching them up with those great homes.” she said.

The Cheyenne Animal Shelter hopes to keep these numbers up, and expects over 200 adoptions in the month of July alone.
