League City has city ordinances that address animal nuisances, requirements, occupancy, and a number of other questions you may have.
Leash Laws & Containment
The city’s ordinance prohibits animals from “running at large”. This means that animals must be under “direct physical (not verbal) control” and/or in a secure enclosure in both public and private places.
The ordinance requires that all dogs, cats, and ferrets over 3 months of age be registered with the city annually and wear a city registration tag. To register your pet, please visit the shelter during business hours with a current rabies certificate.
No registration fee.
$4.00 registration fee.
Keeping of Wildlife & Exotic Animals
Wild or exotic animals may not be kept as pets within the city.
Residents may not keep, harbor, possess, or maintain more than four dogs or cats within the city.
