Following an extremely wet winter, most people aren’t wishing
for April showers and wet winter. However, League City is asking residents to do their part this month to
“shower” the City’s animal shelter with supplies and donations. For the entire month of April, League City Pets Alive is collecting donations for the shelter’s neonatal puppies and kittens, which typically increase during spring’s warmer weather. Here are some the items needed:
· KMR or Breeder’s Edge formula (can and
· Replacement nipples
· Royal Canin cat food (dry and wet )
· Royal Canin starter mousse (puppy)
· Gram scales
· Puppy pads
· Pet store gift cards
Donations can be dropped off at the shelter throughout the month of April on Tuesdays through Thursdays from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. and on Fridays and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. League City Pets Alive also has created a "wish list" on Amazon and residents can order directly off this list and the items will be delivered directly to the shelter.
Although donations are extremely important in keeping newborn
animals in a healthy condition, League City Pets Alive is also in need of volunteers and fosters. According
to Jasmine O’Keefe, LCPA Volunteer Coordinator, “Last year we had over 400 kittens and puppies that came into our shelter that all were neonatal, and bottle fed infants. Our annual kitten and puppy shower helps us make sure that all of our fosters are prepared and supplied to take care of these animals”.
