CHEYENNE ANIMAL SHELTER CHOSEN FOR  LIFE-SAVING CAT PAWSITIVE PROGRAM

The Cheyenne Animal Shelter has been selected by
The Jackson Galaxy Project  (JGP), a Signature Program of GreaterGood.org, to participate in the Summer 2018 Semester of  Cat Pawsitive , a life-saving initiative that introduces positive-reinforcement training to cats in shelters and rescues. Supported by the Petco Foundation and Halo® pet food, this innovative training program for cats aims to increase feline adoption rates and maintain cat "mojo."

Jackson Galaxy (star of the television show  My Cat from Hell on Animal Planet, and founder of JGP) developed  Cat Pawsitive with a team of feline behavior experts. Highlights of the program include:
  • Maintaining cat "adoptability" and feline social skills by enriching cats' day-to-day lives
  • Increasing adoptions
  • Decreasing length of stay
  • Engaging and empowering volunteers and staff
  • Showing potential adopters that cats are cool and can even be trained!
The Cat Pawsitive program is designed to keep adoptable cats mentally and physically active in a shelter or rescue environment. The focus is on fun, positive reinforcement-based training sessions that go beyond playtime-as-usual to help cats maintain their mojo and connect more quickly with potential adopters . From teaching high fives and head bumps to "sit" and "come when called," caregivers at
Cat Pawsitive  participating organizations engage with cats in a brand new way to really help cats to "click" with adopters.

The Cheyenne Animal Shelter's Behaviorist, Brooke Byelich, applied for the grant opportunity, "I'm really excited to get started on this training!" said Byelich. "We have a strong program for training and socializing dogs. We're hoping this will bring the same opportunity to our cats."
KAHLA GETS HER GROOVE BACK AFTER LEG AMPUTATION

Kahla was brought into the Shelter by a member of the community in late April. She arrived covered in blood with a severe fracture of the leg after being attacked by another dog. Sadly, the break was so severe that she needed to have her leg amputated, but fortunately the amputation isn't stopping this girl! Kahla has made a full recovery and is absolutely "personality plus!"

Her favorite things are butt rubs and hearing the sound of her own voice. If you are looking for a dog you can talk to - this is your girl! Kahla has been at the Shelter for almost two months, and is looking for a new home. She's a part of our Lonely Hearts Club, which is comprised of the animals who have been at the Shelter the longest periods of time, and her adoption fee is being waived until July 4th thanks to Best Friends Animal Society's Save Them All Promotion!




Are you looking for a new best friend? Now is a great time to adopt a cat or dog for FREE! The Cheyenne Animal Shelter is teaming up with Best Friends Animal Society and more than 270 other partner rescue groups across the country to offer fee-waived adoptions in hopes of finding homes for 10,000 pets in 10 days.
 
The adoption fees were covered by generous animal lovers who wanted to "pay it forward" and help find homeless cats and dogs new loving homes over the summer holiday.
 
"If you get excited when a stranger pays for your coffee, imagine the joy you'll feel when adopting a pet whose adoption fee has been covered," said Julie Castle, Chief Executive Officer of Best Friends Animal Society.
 
Getting adoptable pets into homes is crucial this time of year, as each July, shelters across the country are flooded with cats and dogs. Many of those intakes happen around the July 4th holiday, when, driven by a fearful reaction to fireworks and other loud sights and sounds, pets flee from their homes and end up in municipal animal shelters.
 
"We're in the peak of kitten season, so our cat population is through the roof! We also have about a dozen dogs that have been in the Shelter for more than a month," said Cheyenne Animal Shelter Manager, Stephanie Bilbro. "We're hoping this promotion will help get some attention for all of our animals waiting for new homes."

***During this time fees will be waived for:***
- Adult and senior cats (any cat older than 7 months)
- Lonely Hearts Club Dogs  (Look for the sign on the kennel or heart on the picture on our website)

Adoption fees for other animals are regular price.
