SCRAPS adopting animals seized from Deer Park property

SCRAPS is now looking to find new homes for nearly 100 animals seized from a Deer Park home last Friday, where they were corralled in cramped quarters in unsanitary conditions.

Now those animals are at the Spokane Fair and Expo Center ready to be adopted to someone who has the space.

The seizure last week was one of the largest in recent history, with nearly 150 animals taken from the property.

he animals were kept in very unsanitary and not good conditions,” Nancy Hill with SCRAPS said.

While prosecutors will weigh criminal charges for the property’s owner, SCRAPS moved the animals to the Spokane Fair and Expo Center and has been nursing them back to health and now they’re ready for new homes.

SCRAPS is holding an adoption event Wednesday at the fairgrounds from 2 p.m. to 6 p.m.

Two billy goats are up for adoption for $50 each while rabbits are up for adoption for $25.

“They make great household pets. They can be spayed, neutered, litter box trained and they’re really lovable and cuddly,” Hill said of the rabbits.

The roosters are going for $10 but are going to need a more rural setting.

“Roosters are not allowed within the city limits of Spokane and likely not in other cities as well because as you can hear today they’re waking us up constantly,” Hill said.

Hill added they’ve already adopted about 50 of the animals through their partner agencies, with those animals heading off to better homes, ranches and farms.

All proceeds from the sales will help replenish SCRAPS animal medical fund.
