SCRAPS: 14 Small Dogs Seized

UPDATE: SCRAPS staff and volunteers have been hard at work bathing, grooming and evaluating the temperament of the 14 small dogs released to the animal protection officers on Thursday.  Due to their hard work these dogs will be available for adoption beginning Monday (not Wednesday), September 19th at noon.  SCRAPS staff will hand out numbers to those in line to adopt these dogs.  SCRAPS thanks you for getting the word out about this change in adoption date.

SCRAPS PRESS RELEASE: On Thursday SCRAPS Animal Protection Officers responded to an unusual alleged hoarding situation at the Spokane Valley Branch of the Spokane County Library District. 

When SCRAPS officers arrived on site they found fourteen small dogs living out of a passenger van. The van had a distinct odor coming from it when the owner opened the van the animal protection officers saw that it was cluttered with urine and feces soaked animal crates, clothes and garbage.  "The dogs themselves were saturated in urine and covered in feces.  They were surrendered by their owner to SCRAPS," said Lead Animal Protection Officer Nicole Montano.

There are nine adult dogs and five puppies. Thirteen of the dogs are Pekingeses and one dog is a Brussels Griffon. SCRAPS Animal Protection Officers charged the owner with operating an illegal commercial kennel and confinement in an unsafe manner.

The dogs will be evaluated for health and temperament and will be groomed.  They will be available for adoption on Wednesday, September 21st.

SCRAPS opens at noon on Wednesday and will be implementing a numbering system to those in line to adopt these dogs. The dogs will be spayed or neutered, microchipped, licensed and vaccinated before they go into their new homes. 

Their adoption fee in $87.04.  None of these dogs will be available for viewing prior to Wednesday September 21.
