Animal Control
Animal control is a division of the League City Police Department and is responsible for the enforcement of city ordinances and state laws pertaining to animals and fowl. The mission is to provide humane education to the public, promoting responsible pet ownership and humane treatment of all animals, and to provide the enforcement of city ordinances and state laws pertaining to animals and the welfare of the citizens of League City.

Animal control is dedicated to educating / informing the public of their responsibilities to their animals, their neighborhood, and ultimately to their community, then enforcing the ordinances of our city when our education efforts are not enough. Animal control strives to reduce the dangers and nuisances caused by irresponsible pet ownership and to protect pets from abuse.

Other services provided include an adult and junior volunteer program, tours of the shelter, and guest speakers for a variety of audiences.

Adoption Informationanimal shelter dog in tutu_thumb.jpg
A innovative new way to adopt our animals in the form of a storefront adoption center opened on September 7, 2014.  The Adoption Center is run by trained shelter volunteers.  The fun, friendly atmosphere provides prospective owners the opportunity to meet and get to know the animals without being in a shelter environment.  Operation costs are reduced due to the generosity of the owners of Cornerstone Shopping Center and Angelo's Pizza and Pasta, who donated the space.  Adoptions of cats and dogs are also available during normal shelter business hours.

The pet adoption fee is $75.  This fee includes spay or neuter of the animal, rabies shot, first round of vaccines, and microchip.  To view available pets, visit the Petfinder website.
