Upgrade rejuvenates League City Animal Shelter

Signs of progress are happening throughout the City with the latest improvement project focused on the League City Animal Shelter.

A project to expand and upgrade the current shelter at a cost of $150,000 was approved by the City Council of League City on March 22, 2016.

Improvements for the shelter, located at 821 N. Kansas, include the cleaning and resurfacing of floors and kennel areas; the installation of a modular office building for administrative space; a re-working of existing fencing; the addition of storage facilities; and remodeling of existing shelter space.

“Our mission is simple – we care for the many pets that others cannot care for and help them find homes with a caring family,” said Kim Schoolcraft, League City’s Animal Services Manager. “We are striving to transition to a no-kill status and these improvements will enhance our ability to care for the pets as we develop plans for the City’s new shelter.”

The addition of the modular building is expected to enhance City staff’s ability to manage volunteer support, animal adoptions, intakes and the issuing of animal licenses.

“The more animals we take in, the bigger the need to properly care for and facilitate adoptions,” continued Schoolcraft. “The new administrative area is geared towards enhancing our customers experience when they come in to adopt a pet. It also provides us with a more space for our volunteer support and check-in process.”

City officials anticipate animal shelter staff to be fully moved in to the modular building and completion of the remaining improvements (i.e., resurfacing of the floors and kennel areas) by the second week in July.

Interested in adopting a pet? Stop by the animal shelter between Tuesday thru Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Friday and Saturday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.; and closed on Sunday and Monday.

Customers looking for lost pets or a potential pet to adopt should enter the main building. Volunteers or kennel staff will greet customers upon entrance to the main building and help address their concerns or questions.
