Friends of League City Animal Shelter aka League City Pets Alive

Kitty Condo Krewe

65% of the shelter's cats under six months of age were adopted at one of our Off Site Venues. The cat condos have increased our live release rate for cats substantially .

We have adoptable cats and kittens residing in cat habitats at FIVE per supply stores. Three in League City and Two in Clear Lake City. PETCO, Petsmart, Pet Super Market and Pet Supplies Plus.

The adoptable cats and kittens are showing and being adopted seven days a week. This agreement with the five stores requires a total of 70 volunteer shifts per week. Volunteers feed, scoop, socialize the cats, talk to potential adopters and talk to potential new volunteers.
While in the store you will talk to potential adopters who stop and ask about the cats. You will explain the adoption process and direct them to our website to complete and application or view our other adoptable cats.

You will invite store customers showing an interest in the cats to join you and become a cat condo volunteer. The store guest must like cats, or they wouldn't stop and they must live close by since they are shopping in the store already.

You can advance in this position if you choose. You can become a Lead for a specific store(s). Train and become an adoption counselor, able to approve and process adoption paperwork. Many stores have weekend adoption giving you another opportunity. You can help and even train to become a Lead for these events. You can become a Feline Friend at the Shelter or foster an animal. You can do as much or as little as your schedule will allow.

Saving Lives is What we do. Come aboard

Mission Statement

Friends of League City Animal Shelter aka League City Pets Alive is a 501(c)3 nonprofit. Our purpose is to stop the senseless killing of companion animals and maintain the "NO KILL" status of League City. We acquire donations or raise funds for the purchase of services and supplies not covered by the City budget. Funds are used for veterinary care, medical supplies. food, related animal supplies, shelter supplies, and volunteer expenses.

Description

In 2013 we set a goal to become NO KILL. We achieved that goal completely in 2017. A shelter is considered "no kill" at 90% live release rate. We didn't stop there. Our volunteers and staff work tirelessly and we achieved 96% live release in 2018 . Committing to be "no kill" means providing treatment for animals that most shelters would kill rather than spend funds to treat. Our community has a generous giving spirit and we are blessed with donations that allow us to save animals with curable diseases or conditions. In 2017 we hired "Dogs Playing for Life" , professional trainers to train our volunteers. Play groups require 50 specially trained volunteers. In 2018 we began treating the most at "risk dogs with heart worms". We have cats showing and being adopted at FIVE area pet supply stores. This increased our live release of cats from 92% in 2018 to 97% for the first quarter of 2019. The Cat Condo program requires 70 volunteer shifts per week.

"No Kill" isn't about warehousing animals. We currently have more animals in foster care than in the shelter. This requires more than 20,000 foster care volunteer hours a year.
We have a new animal shelter under construction which will give us more space to engage the community at the shelter and develop more life saving programs.
