League City Mayor Pat Hallisey, council members, city staff and members of the Friends of the League City Animal Shelter gathered on Saturday, January 26 to officially break ground on the new League City Animal Care and Adoption Center. The group donned shovels and wore hard hats with cat and dog ears added to them to celebrate the groundbreaking for the new 13,200 square foot facility, which be located at 755 West Walker next to the City’s Public Safety Building,




“It’s been a long awaited project for the League City Community and for staff, and with today’s great weather, we are off to a great start,” said City Manager John Baumgartner.

The center, which will open in late 2019/early 2020, will replace the current facility located at North Kansas. In addition to serving as a comfortable and desirable space for residents to adopt an animal, it will include space for educational opportunities and community events. In addition to increased dog and cat kennel capacity, the center will feature a meeting and education room, memorial garden, dog exercise area, and community cat room.

“I can’t wait to move into the new facility,” said Animal Services Director Kim Schoolcraft. “I want to thank everyone involved including City Council, the Mayor, all the people who supported this project, the volunteers, and the Friends of the League City Animal Shelter.”

Residents and businesses can support the new Animal Care and Adoption Center, while also honoring a pet or a loved one, by sponsoring a commemorative brick, bench, or engraved leaf that will be part of a large oak tree mural painted in the lobby. The Friends of the League City Animal Shelter is also offering sponsorship opportunities for kennels and naming rights for various rooms, areas, and portions of the new center.
