Suns Out, Tongues Out ~ Summer Happenings!

We are finally feeling like summer has arrived and that we have hopefully seen the last of the snow. Visitors from around the world have been stepping foot in the Animal Adoption Center (AAC) and families are in the market to adopt!

5 Years With Monroe!

I am celebrating 5 years with my pup Monroe! I went to the AAC on a whim (after a long time wanting a dog of my own) where one of AAC's staff asked what I was looking for in a dog.

Josie the Cajun mutt

When Josie first came to the Animal Adoption Center in September 2016, she was an absolute mess! She was brought to Wyoming via a "Dog is My CoPilot" flight from Louisiana, where disastrous flooding was causing many shelters to evacuate.

FIV: A New Outlook

Two of the Animal Adoption Center’s adoption counselors, Amanda and Jenna, recently traveled to New Orleans to attend the Humane Society of the United States annual Animal Care Expo.

10 years, 12,000 spay/neuters facilitated and counting!

In 2019 the Animal Adoption Center (AAC) celebrates its 15thAnniversary and the 10thAnniversary of Spay/Neuter Wyoming Program. Spay/Neuter Wyoming is designed to attack the root of the pet overpopulation problem through spay/neuter.


The day that I moved into my first dog-friendly home in Jackson, I didn’t waste any time. I adopted baby Otter the same day. Boxes still unpacked, feeling slightly crazed and tired, my boyfriend and I picked up Otter to start our new life, in our new space, together.

Toby – Hurricane Katrina Rescue

Since it’s the 15th Anniversary of the AAC, I felt it’s time to give a shout out to our grumpy old man Toby who’ll be 15 in December 2019.

Tillie – Might, Power & Battle

I was waiting all summer of 2017 for my perfect dog to come through the  Animal Adoption Center. I stopped in frequently; followed closely on social media, fostered a few and then finally found a puppy I set my heart on.

Juno The Wonder Mutt

Four years ago we lost our 16 year old mixed breed dog to an aggressive form of cancer. My husband and I were devastated and I hated how quiet the house was.

Drift ~ The Traveling Cat

We adopted Drift in July 2018 from the Animal Adoption Center in Jackson, Wyoming. The struggle of choosing the right pet was real.

Bert & Baby – A Love Story

We first moved to our new house in February and our dog Baby went from living in a home with other dogs to being an only child. Before adopting Bert we would come home and he would not have touched his breakfast or daily bone and he would be over joyed we came back.

The Adventures of Chet and Cooper

We knew that our playful husky Cooper needed a “buddy”, and Chet was just the pup for the job! He is the sweetest boy and perfect addition to our house.
