SCRAPS opens new in-house veterinary clinic

The Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service, or SCRAPS, officially ‘cut the leash’ to open its new in-house veterinary clinic Friday morning.

SCRAPS says the new addition will provide high quality healthcare to nearly 10,000 animals housed there each year.

Before the clinic opened, staff and volunteers had to schedule appointments at outside veterinary clinics for sterilizing, rabies vaccinations and medication.

SCRAPS has hired a new veterinarian and veterinary technician.

A grant from the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals paid for the start-up equipment and a bequeath to the SCRAPS Hope Foundation funded the interior remodel.
