Starting Thursday, June 23 the League City Animal Care and Adoption Center will be closed to the public until Tuesday, June 28. The majority of the shelter's staff have tested positive for COVID or are exhibiting COVID symptoms. Out of an abundance of caution for the health and safety of all city employees and the overall community, the decision has been made to close the center for public adoptions, animal surrenders, and stray drop-offs.
Despite being closed, the shelter is critically over capacity and has many dogs in temporary kennels. LCAC is asking for assistance from the public by encouraging those who are able to foster an animal to please sign up ASAP at https://www.leaguecitytx.gov/3906/Foster
To view animals needing foster care, visit: https://trello.com/invite/b/ipHl9fes/ab3100f8f7691584fabd2b0d24aea1ff/lcac-foster-program
Animals currently at the shelter will be fed and cared for by staff who have tested negative and by volunteers, who will also be assisting with general tasks such as laundry and dishes. The LCAC Outreach Coordinator will also be onsite working to get animals into foster homes.
League City Animal Protection Officers will also be assisting with animal care and will be available to handle citizen service calls including loose or stray animals, injured animals, cruelty reports, and barking complaints. To request assistance from an Animal Protection Officer, please call the police dispatch line at 281-332-2566.
