SCRAPS running cat adoption event through Saturday

SPOKANE, Wash. - Cat adoptions at SCRAPS

The cat population at SCRAPS has exploded in the last two weeks. Since June 1, 108 cats have been brought to the shelter, an average of eight a day, which prompted SCRAPS to hold a two-day adoption event.

No cat wants to spend time in a cage so now it's up to you to find these fur balls a loving home.

"Short hair, long hair, young, older, black striped, anything you want we probably have today," SCRAPS director Nancy Hill said.

This time of year is busy cat season but something about June this year is different.

"We've had an explosion of cats," Hill said. "May was kind of calm and then all of a sudden June came and we are full."

To get these cats moving SCRAPS is holding a cat adoption event Friday and Saturday. Cats will only cost you the licensing fee of $15. Each one will come spayed or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated.

"It's a very good deal and we're hoping that we'll place a lot of cats this weekend because we are overflowing and we want to make sure they all get loving homes," Hill said.

SCRAPS is located at 2521 N. Flora Rd. and is open from noon to 5:30 p.m. Monday through Saturday.
