Our shelter has an Adoption Application, and a standard adoption fee of $75 cats/$85 for some dogs - cash or check only. This fee INCLUDES a one-year rabies vaccination, spay/neuter surgery, and also includes a microchip and registration. SUCH A DEAL! Adoptions may be done through one of our adoption-partner agencies, including League City Animal Shelter, and Friends of League City Animal Shelter. Dogs and cats old enough for surgery can remain at the Shelter until sterilized, or may already be done. All pets not yet sterilized, will be just microchipped, and adopted out under an Adoption Contract. You still pay the $75/$85 fee, because you pre-pay us for the spay-neuter surgery and rabies shot. You may bring them back to us, to be neutered and vacc'd for rabies, within 30 days of adoption, or by the date set in your contract. You may also take them elsewhere for this, at your own expense. Proof of this being done MUST be supplied to the Webster Shelter, by the date set in your contract. This is REQUIRED by State law, so the City authorities enforce this with citations if you do not comply.
PLEASE NOTE: The City budget DOES NOT COVER VET EXAMS OR TREATMENT for these animals. We advise that each adopted animal get a complete Veterinary exam (including fecal), within about a week of adoption.
PLEASE NOTE: Our Shelter DOES NOT SHIP ANIMALS. You must come IN PERSON to sign for, adopt, and take home your new pet.
Please help keep the homeless pet population down, and reduce behavior problems in your pets. Have all your pets spayed and neutered.
