Animal Rescue During a Global Pandemic

On March 14th, 2020 the Animal Adoption Center (AAC) closed its doors to the public due to the COVID-19 pandemic. The AAC staff did not know what was to come and what animal rescue would look like moving forward. Operations were shifted, a new normal was adopted and our community showed up to help. Thank you to our wonderful supporters that stand by the AAC’s side no matter what. You are driving our mission.

Millions of adoptable dogs and cats are euthanized each year in America due to overcrowding in animal shelters. At the AAC, we are committed to solving the problem of pet overpopulation. We believe that spaying and neutering is the most effective way to exponentially reduce the number of homeless pets. The goal of the AAC Spay/Neuter Wyoming Program is to make sterilization services available to those who might not otherwise be able to afford them.
