Free adoptions at SCRAPS through June 8

SPOKANE, Wash. - Animals at SCRAPS will be free to a good home starting Thursday as the facility is getting ready to move to a bigger location and it wants to avoid transferring animals if it can.

The adoption fees for all animals at SCRAPS will be waived starting Thursday and will run through June 8. Adopters still have to pay for the pet license fee which varies depending on the animal. The license for cats and kittens is $15 and dogs and puppies are $25.

The adoption includes spay/neutering, vaccinations, micro chipping and an exam.

The goal is to move as many animals as they can into new homes rather than their new facility at the old Harley Davidson building on Trent. Shelter staff say right now they are overflowing with animals.

"Our capacity here is about 80 dogs and probably 80 to 90 cats and we're almost to capacity now. So we have a lot of animals for adoption and we'll continue to have for the next week to 10 days until we move," SCRAPS director Nancy Hill said.

Animals that are not adopted during the sale period will be transferred to the new facility, which is scheduled to open June 12.
