Check Out Our Adoptable Pets

LAWS Adoptables

LAWS adoptables are cared for in foster homes until adopted. A completed adoption application is required, and upon approval of the adoption application, pets will be spayed/neutered and micro-chipped. Learn more about LAWS Adoptables.

Laramie Community Adoptables

LAWS also assists in rehoming for local owners who can no longer care for their pets. These pets are also available for adoption, but adopters will need to contact the owners directly. Visit the Rehoming Bulletin Board.

(NOTICE: We have been having problems with applications not coming through to our software, so if you don’t hear from us within two days, please email us at to let us know you submitted an application and on what date. We are working to clear this up and apologize for the inconvenience.)
