League City Animal Care and Adoption Center to open in April

League City Animal Care and Adoption Center will open April 11 at 755 W. Walker St., League City. The new shelter will offer microchipping services daily and will have 60 total indoor and outdoor kennels that are behind glass, reducing both noise and smell. There will also be an education room designed to engage community members in classes, training and other events.

The facility will be more welcoming to families looking to adopt and less stressful for animals waiting to be adopted, League City officials said. The shelter will also partner with the Animal Alliance of Galveston County to offer a program that provides spay and neuter services to low-income families, including a rabies vaccine and a microchip with each surgery.
