Spokane Humane Society Welcomes 47 Rescued Labradoodles

OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE: The Spokane Humane Society welcomed 47 sweet but scared and neglected Labradoodles and other small dogs from an illegal commercial kennel in northern Spokane County.

 Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service, (SCRAPS) and volunteers from the Humane Evacuation Animal Rescue Team (HEART) kenneled, transported and helped the caring staff of the Spokane Humane Society vaccinate and medicate these neglected animals. "Some of these little guys are already responding to our care and attention" said Dave Richardson of the Spokane Humane Society. "Others are terrified and will take many weeks to respond to our loving care, but we are doing what we can to make them comfortable as they begin their recovery and ultimate placement into loving and caring homes.

It will take several days to bathe, groom and address medical, flea and skin issues. Before they are available for adoption, they will be treated, comforted, socialized and most importantly loved. Some of these animals may be placed with experienced foster families for more intensive care; there is an ongoing need for more foster family volunteers. Please visit our website or your local animal shelter for more information on becoming a foster family.

"Thanks to the incredible generosity of animal lovers in our area, we were able to open our kennel doors to respond quickly to this crisis situation to provide these animals with a chance at happiness. Donations will help us provide emergency veterinary care and grooming and canned food and grooming supplies are needed to help speed their recovery" Richardson continued.

We ask you to make adopted your favorite breed. If you are going to make a cat or dog part of your family, please check with your local animal shelter first. There are many dogs waiting for homes in shelters all across the country—and an estimated one in four is a purebred! If your heart is set on a specific breed that you haven't been able to find in a shelter, you can do an internet search for a breed-specific rescue organization.

For more information or to get involved with compassionate care of animals in your community, please contact the Spokane Humane Society at (509) 467-5235.

The Spokane Humane Society is a 501c3 not-for-profit organization last year finding homes for more then 3000 animals and has sustained a live release rate of more than 95% since 2007. Please remember our community's unwanted companion animals by choosing to make caring for critters a priority.
