For every meowbox sold, meowbox donates a can of cat food, or monetary equivalent to a shelter or rescue. This month, we donated to the Dog and Cat Shelter in Sheridan, WY.
The Dog and Cat Shelter of Sheridan, Wyoming had humble beginnings, operating out of a modest building for years after its opening in 1969. Eventually, what started as a project to help the area’s animals turned into a pivotal part of the community, and the shelter grew into what it is today: a happy, enriching space with heated kennels, a playing area and catio for cats, and a staff of compassionate animal lovers.
Some of the shelter’s programs and services include low-cost spaying and neutering; daily training for adoptable dogs; pairing senior pets with senior citizens, and funding the veterinary bills; designating certain shelter dogs to help veterans; and housing the pets of people who have been hospitalized, incarcerated, or placed in care facilities.
The shelter vets potential adopters to ensure every animal finds the forever home that best suits them. There are currently a number of kitties in the shelter’s care who have been waiting to get adopted for over a year:
