Fourteen cats have become the latest residents of the SCRAPS free roaming cat room after they were surrendered. They are all adult cats that came from one home and are in good health and ready for adoption. They joined the already near capacity number of felines, both adults and kittens, that are in the SCRAPS cat room.
“Our new facility holds almost twice the number of cats as before, but we are still almost full in our cat room,” said Nancy Hill, Regional Director of SCRAPS. “This has been an incredibly busy kitten season and now we are seeing more and more adult cats being surrendered including this latest group.” The pet parent of these cats passed away and the family could not find homes for them. The limit for pets in one house-hold is four cats and four dogs in Spokane County (and just four pets total in the City of Spokane).
To ensure that each of these cats and all of the felines at the shelter can find a forever home, SCRAPS will be holding a two-day cat adoption event. On Friday, July 25, Saturday, July 26th and Sunday, July 27th, you can adopt a cat for free with the cost of the license, which is fifteen dollars. The spay/neutering, microchipping, exam and vaccinations are all free.
“We have every age, weight, size and breed available,” said Hill. “Our facilities are really stretched to the limit and we hope the community will help us and come find a forever friend.”
SCRAPS is open seven days a week: Monday, Tuesday, Thursday and Friday from noon to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday the shelter is open from noon to 6:30 p.m. and Saturday and Sunday from 10 a.m. – 5 p.m. SCRAPS is located at 6815 E. Trent in the Spokane Valley.
