Friends of League City Animal Shelter aka League City Pets Alive

LCPA Logo

We are a nonprofit that supports a No Kill municipal animal shelter. We fund essential services like veterinary care and surgeries, medical diagnostic tests, medications, neonatal supplies, heartworm diagnostics, treatment, and prevention. To do this requires community support and funding for our mission.

That's where you come in.....
We want to send a positive, upbeat newsletter sharing success stories of the dogs and cats that have come through our animal shelter and benefited from the services we fund. To share the community service of the League City Animal Care and Adoption Center and all the staff and volunteers contribute to the animals. The more our constituents know about the positive impact, the more they will want to be a bigger part.

We don't tell sad stories and we don't ask for money. Rather, we share what we do which engages and excites people to ask "how can I help". First you have to give, and then you have to be open to receive.

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.
