A 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.
