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.
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.
