This time of year is typically SCRAPS busy season.
But the number of pets they've received this year,
far exceeds years passed.
ON AVERAGE THE SHELTER WILL TAKE IN JUST OVER 100
ANIMALS DURING WHAT THEY CALL THEIR BUSY SEASON.
Janet Dixon/ SCRAPS :53W13 26
We have had since July 1st coming into our facility,
This is 89 dogs.
and that's from the first to the 6th to June.
JANET DIXON FROM SCRAPS SAYS IN MOST CASES.
THEY HAVE NO WAY OF CONTACTING THE ANIMAL'S OWNERS.
SHE SAYS COLLARS ARE NOT FASHION STATEMENTS.
THEY SHOULD HAVE TAGS HANGING ON THEM.
Many of the dogs that
we have received have no identification
what so ever.
Your license, your microchip, is your animals phone
SCRAPS WILL HOLD DOGS FOR FIVE DAYS.
BUT CATS ARE PUT UP FOR ADOPTION UPON ARRIVAL.
OFTEN TIMES BECAUSE OF THE LARGE QUANTITIES THEY RECEIVE.
IN A DAY SCRAPS CAN RECEIVE 7 LITTERS OF KITTENS.
TOTALING AROUND 35 KITTENS TOTAL.
That's an incredible amount of kittens for us to get
Most of these kittens are what's called a neonate
which means they've been seperated from their mother
too soon they have to be bottle fed.
IF A LITTER IS BOTTLE FED.
SCRAPS HAS TO FIND THEM A FOSTER HOME.
THAT CAN BE SEVEN FOSTER HOMES A DAY.
DIXON HOPES THAT OWNERS BECOME MORE CAUTIOUS AND PAY
BETTER ATTENTION TO CLOSING DOORS AND BACK GATES BEHIND
We're hoping that the influx does not last into the
PET OWNERS CAN LICENSE THEIR ANIMALS ONLINE OR BY
GOING TO THE SCRAPS SHELTER.
