Friends of League City Animal Shelter aka League City Pets Alive

We are a NO KILL animal shelter. That means we treat animals other shelters would euthanize. We treat most dogs for heart worms and keep all dogs on prevention while in our care. We do not have funds for all animals to see a veterinarian. We diagnosis and treat the most common issues like diarrhea, upper respiratory, conjunctivitis, ringworm, etc. We have successfully treated parvo, and pan leukopenia. We have an incredible team of staff, volunteers and fosters that treat the animals for medical conditions. We need a higher level of skill to improve out treatment of our animals. We will be moving into our NEW SHELTER which will give us a new medical treatment room and more isolation space. If you are a Vet Tech and want to give back to the community, or if you are a Vet Tech in training and want to practice and hone your skills, we can use your knowledge and skills to further ours. We are hoping to document the success of having a Vet Tech so we can get the City to put a salary in a future budget.

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 mostly for veterinary care, medical supplies, puppy and kitten food, and related animal supplies.

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 to maintain over 95% live release. 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 treatable conditions or curable diseases. We hired "Dogs Playing for Life", professional trainers to train our volunteers. Play groups require 50 specially trained volunteers. We test and treat heartworm positive dogs. We have cats available for adoption seven days a week at FIVE area pet supply stores. The Kitty Condo Krewe increased our live release of cats significantly. The Cat Condo program requires 70 volunteer shifts per week.

"No Kill" isn't about warehousing animals. We typically have more animals living in foster homes than in the shelter. This requires more than 20,000 foster care volunteer hours a year.

We are delighted to have moved into our new shelter in 2020. The new shelter gives us more space for animals and the ability to engage the community at the shelter and develop more life saving programs.

Come join us in saving lives.
