Adoption Fee includes spay or neuter surgery, appropriate vaccinations including rabies vaccines, and microchip.

Heart to Heart

Adopting a heartworm positive dog may sound daunting at first, but it's really not as scary as it may seem! Heartworms are treatable and not contagious to your other pets. League City Animal Care will sponsor the heartworm treatment with our partner clinics at no cost to adopters!
So what can you expect? Adopters will need to bring their new dog to their scheduled appointments for treatment with our veterinary partners. During the treatment period, your new pet will need to reduce exercise and enjoy calm activities with you. Once the treatment is complete, your pet can resume normal activities and can go back to being your partner in life's adventures!

Thanks to an anonymous donor, the first 20 dog adoptions are currently sponsored. That means NO ADOPTION FEE! After those adoptions, all adoptions will be 50% off until the shelter is back under capacity. Are you looking for a new best friend? YOU GOT IT, DUDE!

We are always looking for new corporate sponsors and individual donors to help encourage adoptions! If your group or company would like to get involved as a corporate sponsor, please email our Community Outreach Coordinator at Lynette.Bodmer@LeagueCityTX.gov. Corporate sponsorships may include sponsored adoptions, events, t-shirts, supply sponsorships, and more!
