Welcome to Laramie Animal Welfare Society (LAWS)

We are a non-profit organization dedicated to helping the animals of Laramie, WY. We also assist the work of the Laramie Animal Shelter to promote responsible pet ownership.

If you see what you think to be abuse or neglect of an animal, or you need to inquire about a lost pet, contact the Laramie Animal Shelter.

Check Out Our Adoptable Pets

All 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.

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.
