Ellie was originally from our shelter and was adopted out and turned in to the shelter in Sheridan. They signed her over because she does not do well with small dogs and cats. She is very playful and energetic. She is an athletic dog who needs lots of exercise. She is very sweet and friendly. She does well on a leash too!!!

Apollo was turned in by the owner because they were moving and couldn’t take him with. He’s very sweet. He’s cuddly too. This is a very good looking cat.

Athena was turned in by the owner because they were moving and couldn’t have cats in the new residence. She is very sweet and friendly. Very nice cat!!!

Sly is a sweetheart. He and Moose were turned in by the owner because they were moving far away and couldn’t bring them with. He’s very sweet and friendly. He’s a bit curious too. He does NOT like to be brushed was the only bad remark they had about him. I picture him like Simba when his mom was grooming him and he’s like Mom, Mom, you’re messing up my mane!!!

Dawg was turned in by the owner because they didn’t have enough time to spend with her. Dawg loves attention and can be pretty needy in that department. She’ll do great in a home by herself. She is pretty laid back. She is a lap cat. She just wants to cuddle.

Meet Wander! She has been at the shelter since October. They have been working with her as she wasn’t a social dog when she was brought in. She is very friendly now and such a lover! She does well with other dogs and cats. For more information on her give the Gillette Animal Shelter a call at 686-5249.

Moose came in with Sly. He is very friendly and curious. He wants to go outside really bad was the only thing they said about him that wasn’t good. He is a good looking cat too!!!

Meet Jacks!! He was turned in by the owner because their other dogs were beating up on him. This dog would be amazing at agility and the high jump and fetch events. He can really jump high for a toy. He is an absolute doll!! He is very smart and willing to please. He needs some training not to jump on people, he gets so excited to be around people he tends to jump up. This dog is a diamond in the rough.

Meet Alcatraz! He originally came in as a stray. He got away from me when I was putting him in his cage when he came in, so he got dubbed Alcatraz since he’s an escapee. He was with us for some time and was our kitten babysitter while he was here. He was then adopted and recently brought back because the owner didn’t have time for him and his buddy Peabody. Super sweet cat loves attention and doesn’t mind dogs.

Meet Maybelline!! Maybe she’s born with it, maybe it’s Maybelline!!! This sexy lady came in as a stray. She really loves everybody and loves to play. She’s got tons of energy, give her a toy and she’ll be your friend for life. This dog is super sweet and loves attention!

Meet Derek! Derek was caught wandering the streets. He is a young male neutered. He is a sweetheart and loves people. He is a pretty cat. We are black cat central at the moment.

Meet TJ! He is a male kitten neutered. T.J. came in to the shelter as a stray. He was very sick with Distemper when he came in. He went into foster care and was able to fight it with amazing care!!! He is a sweetheart!!! He is an absolute lover!

Meet Sage!!! She was turned in by the owner because she became destructive when she was left home alone for long periods of time. She is a very nice dog. She is still a puppy and needs some training. She does well on a leash. She has lots of energy and likes to play. She is very friendly.

Meet Summer! She is a Springer Spaniel. Beautiful dog. Very friendly. Would need to go to a home with no cats.

Meet Titus! He is a one year old Pit Bull Boxer Mix. Very energetic! Will need to go to an active home with older kids and no cats. Call the Gillette Animal Shelter for more information or stop by today when they open at 1 to check him out! Very happy dog!

Meet Bella! A two year old female black and white Shih Tzu! She is so adorable. Would be great for anyone looking for a relaxed dog. Rides in the car well. Loves to be the star of the show!

Meet Killer! He is about 10 months old. He is litter box trained and pretty low maintenance. He loves people and attention. He enjoys being out of his cage getting exercise. He doesn’t mind being held. This is a great project for someone wanting a first time pet or a 4-H project.

This is Scooter. Very sweet dog.

He is a very energetic man. He loves to be with people. He will sit, lay down and learn new tricks for a treat. Scooter loves a good belly rub and is happiest when with a human. 
On the down side. When Scooter is in a home with other dogs, he tends to mark his territory. Since he’s been at the shelter, he has not marked at all. He is vocal here, but that’s because he’s a little dog and he feels he has to compete with other dogs for the attention of prospective adopters, he doesn’t realize that not all humans like the barking. HE FOUND HIS FOREVER HOME DECEMBER 7TH!!! 

Meet Blossom! The Animal Shelter says that Blossom came to them as a stray. They are estimating her to be about 9 months old. She is quiet and laid back. She is quite a sweetie.
Vaccinations up to date, spayed / neutered.

Looking for a cat? Here your chance to adopt this sweet girl.

 ADOPTED DECEMBER 17th THANK YOU! Burton came to the Gillette Animal Shelter as a stray. He is a sweet heart. He reminds them of Tim Burton they think…. He’s very laid back. He is a bit of a chatterbox at times. ADOPTED DECEMBER 17TH THANK YOU!

So if you know her or her owners please call the shelter so she can get back to her family. She gets along with other dogs and is house trained.

Meet Pumpkin! She was picked up prowling the neighborhood. She is very sweet. She is ready to rule the roost at her forever home. She’s friendly and likes to play. She is about a year old. She is such a sweet thing.

Meet Cloud! Very sweet girl! Cloud was floating around the neighborhood. She must’ve gotten lost at her last turn. She is ready to put somebody on Cloud 9 for Christmas! She is a sweetie and loves to play. She is a typical kitten, so she is full of energy. She is curious about everything and she also has a cuddly side.

Meet Cassie! She came in with Menace. She is a little timid to strangers at first. She has the typical German Shepherd bark and personality. She has some separation anxiety and tends to become destructive when left home alone. She is very sweet. She does good on a leash. She knows her basic commands. If you give her a squeaky toy she will keep you entertained with the way she squeaks it non stop. She has lots of energy and will need to be exercised regularly.

Meet Baker! He showed up as a stray at someone’s house and tried to make himself at home, but was not welcomed, so he was brought to us. We call him Baker because that is what he does all day is knead on his bed. He will make a great cuddle buddy. If he was a dog, he’d be a lap dog for sure. He is very sweet and friendly.

Meet Dozer! He was turned in by the owner with Cleo. They were fostering these dogs and the agency never got back in contact with them. This gentle giant looks older than he actually is!!! His teeth make him seem about 4-5 years old. They guessed him around 6 years. He is very quiet and listens really well. He’s good on a leash.

Lucky is one lucky guy. He came down with a very bad cold, he wouldn’t eat and was just miserable. Then his health took a turn for the better and he has been doing great. We worked very hard to nurse him back to health. We thought we were going to lose him a couple times, but he bounced back finally. This is a very sweet cat. He is ready to go to his forever home for Christmas. He has the potential to be a good mouser or just a companion for someone. He does like to cuddle at times and is very friendly.

Meet Quinn! He was caught roaming the streets. He had his six shooter on him and looking for a fight. He was prowling for the ladies and would shoot any man in sight. Ok, so it was an exaggeration, but it sounded good. Quinn is very much the opposite of how this story goes. He is very laid back and not very motivated to do anything. He truly did come in as a stray. He will do great in any home. He’s very friendly. He enjoys being brushed.

Kitty here was turned in by the owner because she was naughty and making a mess of the place, spilling food all over and just being rowdy. Ok, so she likes to party at night, is that a crime? She had a playmate or should I say a partner in crime, Butterball. He’s still on hold while he settles in a little more to the shelter setting. She is friendly and a little shy at first when meeting new people, but she comes around quickly. She is sweet and enjoys attention. Brushing is her favorite.

Jazzy is very friendly. She likes to be brushed and petted. She is looking for a lap to lay on and keep warm. Coat Length is short. She is house trained and up to date on vaccinations.

Cinnamon was also another kitty that caught a bad cold and has finally bounced back as well!!! She’s very friendly. She seems to like everybody. She enjoys getting attention and a good brush. She will do best in a home by herself with no other cats. She is ready to rule your roost and is hoping to win the lotto in homes.

Meet Junkyard! This dude seems to have had a rough upbringing. He’s actually very sweet. His exterior is a bit rough too. He may be rough around the edges, but don’t let that deter you from this kitty. He loves attention. He could use a groom to give him a fresh start on his long coat. He is very friendly and curious about everything in his surroundings.

Rose is also a resident from No Place Like Home. She is kind of shy at first, but comes around quick. She actually is pretty friendly once she comes out of her shell. She is good with other cats, but is a little timid around children. Not sure about dogs. She will do well in a quiet home.

This is Ginger she is 11 years old. Now don’t let her age deter you as it is just a number. She has spunk and lots of energy for an ol’ girl. She is very friendly and loves everybody. Again could use a diet and a groom and she’ll be in good shape. She has aged very well for this size of dog, so again don’t let her age deter you from adoption. She will do great in a quiet home where she can retire pampered!!!
