The primary objective of the members of the Laramie Division of Animal Control and Welfare is to provide quality service to citizens, while dedicating themselves to improving the co-existence of animals and humans.

We shall provide humane law enforcement throughout the City of Laramie and by example and through education, we shall promote and advance responsible, humane companion animal ownership.

We will provide the highest quality care for the displaced animals of our community and will make every effort to secure compassionate, responsible, permanent homes for the adoptable animals in our care.

WELCOME!  Take a look around!!

We are very proud of our facility and the services we provide.  We welcome you to visit and meet your Shelter staff as well as the many wonderful adoptable animals seeking new homes.

Your Shelter is conveniently located in the West end of LaBonte Park.

Adopting a new friend and companion from the Laramie Animal Shelter is simply the best, most responsible way to add a companion animal to your life. 

Check Out Our Adoptable Pets

  If you see someone you are interested in, stop by the Shelter and a member of our staff will be happy to help you get acquainted.

Our Adoption fees are very reasonable:    

Dogs and Cats = $35         All Other Pets = $10

All dogs, cats and rabbits adopted from the Laramie Animal Shelter are spayed or neutered at no cost with the help of the Laramie Animal Welfare Society.  All dogs, cats and ferrets come with a microchip for permanent identification  We provide a free first city license for adopted dogs, cats and ferrets and free collars and tags for both dogs and cats. If the Shelter provided a rabies vaccination for the dog, cat or ferret being adopted, there will be an additional $20 fee for that vaccination at the time of adoption.

Here is the application form:
  Adoption Application             

Please feel free to print an application and bring it with you when you visit.  If you fax your paperwork to the Shelter, please know that we often require that existing dogs meet dogs being considered for adoption as part of the application process. 



Look Here If You Are Missing Your Pet

Also, please contact the Shelter and complete a "lost report" so we know who to call if "Fido" or "Fluffy" arrive at our door.

If your animal is impounded for safe keeping in the Shelter there is a $35 impound fee. There is also a $12 fee for each night an animal stays at the Shelter.

Personal checks and cash are accepted here but the facility is not able to process a debit/credit card.

If your animal is impounded and you wish to redeem the animal on a Sunday or Monday, when the Shelter is normally closed, you may contact the Laramie non-emergency dispatch center at 307-721-2526 and a dispatcher can put you in contact with the on duty officer between the hours of 8 am and 6 pm to arrange to redeem your animal.
