Action Cam: SCRAPS Offers Free Adoption With Purchase Of License

Posted: Updated:

KHQ.COM - In a one week period from July 1st through July 6th, the Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service (SCRAPS) has taken in 89 dogs and 145 cats – a total of 234 animals. That’s thirty nine animals per day for the last six days.

"Even during this busy season, that’s an unbelievable amount of incoming animals for us," said Nancy Hill, SCRAPS Regional Director. "These pets have no identification – no license or microchip – so we must find them homes immediately," Last year, SCRAPS took in 43 dogs and 59 cats during the same period of time and that number is considered high.

No matter how you add it up, SCRAPS is full. Every cat cage and dog pod is almost full to capacity and we are seeking the public’s help in finding new homes for the animals in our care. To ensure that each of these animals can find a forever home, SCRAPS will be holding an adoption event here at the shelter. On Tuesday, July 8th through Sunday, July 13th, you can adopt a dog or cat for free when you purchase a license. Licenses are $15 for cats and $25 for dogs. The adoption fee and the cost of the spay/neutering, microchipping, vaccinations and exam are all free.

"If you’ve been thinking about adopting a new dog, cat or kitten, please help us find good homes for these great pets," said Hill. "Also, please remember to license and microchip your animals. It the best way to guarantee they will find their way home." Licensing is required by law for both dogs and cats in Spokane County.

SCRAPS is open Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from 10:00 to 5:30 p.m., Wednesday from noon to 6:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday 10:00 –5:00 p.m. We are located at 6815 E. Trent in the Spokane Valley.
