SCRAPS offering adoption special on cats

The Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service (SCRAPS) is bursting at the seams with cats! According to Shelter Operations Manager Mary Reynolds-Paullin, SCRAPS has been inundated with cats all summer and now the other local rescue groups are full.

“Our cat room is overflowing with beautiful, adoptable cats that desperately need loving homes,” Reynolds-Paullin said.

SCRAPS is offering a great cat adoption special starting on Friday, September 12th and Saturday, September 13th. Cat adoption fees will be waived and cats and kittens can be adopted for just the price of a license ($15).

SCRAPS also reminds the public that they have spay/neuter vouchers available for both cats and dogs. For the price of a pet license, SCRAPS will provide you with a ‘dollars off’ coupon to have your pet spayed or neutered.
