League City Animal Care Takes in 60 Small Dogs

Shelter needs community assistance to help with facility overcrowding.


Over the weekend, the League City Police Department and League City Animal Care were made aware of an extreme dog hoarding case in a League City home. The owner cooperated with police and animal control officers and surrendered 60 small dogs to League City Animal Care. Many of the dogs had matted fur covered in urine and feces. Local groomers, vets, LCAC staff, and volunteers have stepped up to help clean the dogs and prepare them for adoption, following complete health assessments.

Many of the dogs are now ready for adoption and more will become available in the coming days after they have been groomed and assessed for health needs.

View all available adoptable dogs here.

IMPORTANT: What to Know Before You Adopt

  • League City Animal Care Adoption Center is open Tuesdays, Thursdays, and Fridays from 11 a.m. - 7 p.m., Saturdays from 11 a.m. - 5 p.m. and Sundays from 12 p.m. - 5 p.m. They are closed on Wednesday.
  • Adopters are seen on a first-come, first-served basis. LCAC is not able to place holds on pets in advance. 
  • Please be prepared to take your new pet home with you!
  • All unspayed/unneutered animals will only be available to adopters who reside inside a 15-mile radius of LCAC. Adopters of unaltered pets will be given a scheduled surgery date and must sign a sterilization agreement. Adopters who fail to complete this process will be subject to legal action.
  • All adoption fees are currently waived thanks to a generous sponsorship by BISSELL Pet Foundation & MetLife Pet Insurance. Adoption fees include spay/neuter surgeries, microchips, initial dewormings and vaccines, and more.
  • In addition to these small dogs, LCAC has many others in need of adoption as well.
  • View adoptable pets, read about the adoption process, and view the 15-mile radius map here.

Shelter Still in Need of Assistance 

Even before the small dog intake, the shelter was at 70% over capacity. League City Animal Care kennels are designed to hold around 50-60 dogs and they have been well over that number for some time now. The shelter needs fosters, volunteer groomers, and donations of crates, puppy pads, and wet puppy food.
