SCRAPS asks for donations to care for 41 cats that were ‘living in decrepit conditions’

April 2, 2019

Nearly four dozen cats “living in decrepit conditions” were seized Monday afternoon by Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service workers from a home in Spokane Valley.

In a Facebook post Monday night, the agency said the 41 felines, many of whom were underweight, ill and in need of baths, were living in their own filth for a “long time.” SCRAPS currently has them housed in their Spokane Valley facility.

The post asks for donations of dry and canned cat food, which can be dropped off at 6815 E. Trent Ave.

Throughout the years, SCRAPS typically receives and catches more cats than they can adopt out. In many cases, the animals are transported to local and regional shelters in Seattle and other major cities.
