Across the League City and Bay Area,
summer is the peak season when the number of animals coming in to shelters
grows, while at the same time, pet adoptions temporarily dip. The League City Animal
Shelter is no exception, and the facility is near capacity with dogs and cats who
are looking for their forever home.
To help empty the shelter, League City is hosting its 5th annual Paws and Claws Adopt-a-Thon on July 20 and 21 at Hometown Heroes Park located at 1001 E. League City Parkway.
All animals will be available for a $20 adoption fee.
Hundreds of kittens, puppies and full grown dogs and cats are being brought in
from surrounding shelters in the Houston and the Galveston area and will be available
for adoption on both days, along with animals from the League City Animal Shelter
In addition to adoptions, citizens can bring out their
pets for free microchipping and reduced price vaccinations. There also will be plenty
of fun for the whole family with vendors, food, and a silent auction.
