Get Help with Pet Care Expenses in Wyoming

If you need help with pet care in Wyoming, you’re not alone. We’ve had many requests for information in this area. Fortunately, we’ve been able to find a few agencies that can help.


Don’t forget to check out our list of federal pet assistance programs as well!

Need help with spay or neuter costs?

There are many agencies that offer low-cost spay and neuter services for low income families.

Black Dog Animal Rescue

This organization is building a surgical suite onsite. Follow their progress here.

Central Wyoming Spay & Neuter Foundation

You may be able to receive vouchers from CWSNF. The vouchers have a value of between $35 – $60 each. Vouchers do not cover the entire cost of the procedure, so owners are expected to make up the difference. The vouchers can only be used for spay and neuter services at participating vets in Casper, Glenrock or Douglas.


Cheyenne Animal Shelter

Through “The Big Fix” program, CAS offers low-cost spay and neuter assistance to the low income community. Up to 15 pets per month are altered through this program. You can find an application on the CAS website.

Spay Wyoming

Spay Wyoming is part of the Spay USA network. Their website has very little information, but I recommend contacting them if you need assistance.

Affordable microchipping is also available.

Some agencies offer additional services.

Black Dog Animal Rescue

Microchipping is available for a very low cost $20. This includes the registration of the microchip. Details here.

Need help with with pet food?

Pet food can be expensive. Fortunately, you can get help with free pet food in Wyoming!

Black Dog Animal Rescue

This shelter offers free dog and cat food, as well as other supplies. The name of their pet food program is The Empty Dish Pet Pantry.

Pet food appears to be limited to owners who live in Laramie. However, you can receive food up to three months per year without demonstrating need. If you need more than that, you can discuss your needs with the shelter.


Need help with boarding expenses?

Pets are part of the family. Fortunately, there are some agencies that can help when your pet needs somewhere to stay temporarily.

Cheyenne Animal Shelter offers Shelter Boarding

If you enroll in COMEA or Safehouse, the shelter at CAS will offer very low-cost boarding to your pets. The goal is to keep your family together, including your pets.

The cost is $30 per pet. If you are staying at COMEA, you may be able to volunteer for four hours instead of paying the boarding fees. The program includes a spay/neuter service and vaccinations. Microchips can be added for a small additional fee.
