St. Francis Animal Shelter

What We Do

Our objective is to improve life for cats, dogs and our community. St. Francis Animal Shelter was founded in January of 1997. We are a NO KILL shelter providing shelter for more than 170 animals each year along with low-cost vaccinations, microchipping, and spay & neuter clinics.


Community Services

We offer low cost Vaccinations, Microchipping, City Tags, Spaying & Neutering, in addition to our Trap-Neuter-Return Program and Loan Closet to all Johnson County residents. Call us today at (307)684-1738 if you have any questions or would like to be added to our vet’s schedule.
