A Year of Cats!

scraps logoA record 355 cats and kittens have come to SCRAPS in the first two weeks of September.  Last year during the same period, SCRAPS impounded 150 cats and kittens.

“This September we have had an overwhelming number of cats brought in,” said Nancy Hill, Director of SCRAPS.  “If we adopted one cat per day, it would take almost a year to empty out our cat room.”

Unfortunately, SCRAPS doesn’t have a year to find homes for these animals.   So far this summer, over 500 kittens have been placed into the SCRAPS foster care program.  These babies are so young they must be hand-fed.  As they become available for adoption, they will continue to keep the cages full in our new facility.

All of the animals taken into SCRAPS are from the Spokane area – SCRAPS does not import animals from out of the area into our shelter.  These cats and kittens are from Spokane and need homes here in Spokane.

Please remember to spay/neuter, license and microchip your pets.

CAT SPECIAL THIS FRIDAY, SATURDAY, and SUNDAY!
The SCRAPS cat room is nearing capacity and they need the public’s help in finding homes for all of the cats and kittens in their care. They are offering a special starting Friday, September 19th through Sunday, September 21st 2014. Owners can adopt an adult cat, young cat, or kitten for $15 – the cost of a license. This includes spay/neutering, micro-hipping, vaccinations, and exam.

Featured Pet: Allegra #6223

allegraadoptedAllegra (#6223) is a beautiful four-year-old long-haired Calico cat. She was picked up and brought in to SCRAPS and is now waiting for the perfect forever home. She’s very sweet and affectionate and does have a bit of a mischievous side to her. She’s happy to cuddle and nap with her family, but also likes to play on occasion. Allegra has a lovely long coat that she maintains fairly well on her own. But long hair can easily become tangled and matted and she’ll need to be brushed on a regular basis to keep her coat in great shape. The adoption fee for Allegra is $40 and includes spaying, micro-chipping, and licensing, among other things. If you are interested in adopting her, please head out to SCRAPS news location at 6815 E Trent, Spokane Valley, and ask for Allegra by ID number 6223!

Featured Pet: Spartacus #6597

spartacusadoptedSpartacus (#6597) is a four-year-old male Bernese Mountain Dog/Shepherd mix. He was picked up and brought in to SCRAPS and is now looking for a new forever home. He is young and full of energy and, while he wants to be a good boy, doesn’t always pay attention to what is being asked of him when he gets too excited. He would definitely benefit from some obedience classes and luckily SCRAPS offers them twice a month for FREE. He would be great with a family of adults and old kids, as his size and exuberance might be overwhelming for smaller children. The adoption fee for Spartacus is $87.04 and includes neutering, micro-chipping, and licensing, among other things. If you are interested in adopting him, please come to SCRAPS and ask for him by ID number 6597!

Featured Pet: Snookie #5821

Pet of the WeekSnookie (#5821) is a spayed two-year-old tortoiseshell tabby cat. She’s sweet and playful and loves to eat, which is evident by the extra pounds she is currently carrying around. She was brought in to SCRAPS along with 13 other cats after her previous owner passed away. While she was in a large pet family before she was taken care of very well and is now looking for a new home where she can find love – and hopefully a diet! She has no current health issues but will need to lose some weight so that she can stay healthy. She would be fine with a family of any size, with or without kids, and does well in a multiple cat household. The adoption fee for Snookie is $40 and includes micro-chipping and licensing, among other things. If you are interested in adopting her, please head out to SCRAPS new location at 6815 E Trent, Spokane Valley, and ask for Snookie by ID number 5281!

Featured Pet: Bella #6360

bellaadoptedBella (#6360) is a beautiful four-year-old Border Collie. She has a lot of energy and loves to play, run, chase frisbees, and cuddle. She isn’t a puppy any longer but even adult Border Collies need time and attention or their behavior can become destructive. While she knows basic commands such as “sit”, she could use a little more obedience training. Luckily SCRAPS offers FREE dog training classes twice a month! Bella was surrendered by her last family because they didn’t have the time to give her all of the attention and training she needed. She would do great with a new family that is active and has a lot of time to spend with her. The adoption fee for Bella is $87.04 and includes spaying, micro-chipping, and licensing, among other things. If you are interested in adopting her, please come to SCRAPS and ask for her by ID number 6360!
