SCRAPS Press Release:

SPOKANE, Wash. -  Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service (SCRAPS) has completed its investigation of Evergreen Pet Shop, 14319 E. Sprague Avenue, in the Spokane Valley.   The investigation was triggered by complaints in November of neglected animals.   The store closed to the public in August but animals were still being maintained in the building.

As part of the investigation, SCRAPS Animal Protection Officers visited the store and conducted interviews.   They also spoke with local veterinarians and reviewed veterinary records.  The complaints included concerns of dead animals in the store, lack of proper food/water/sanitation and failure to provide appropriate medical attention.

The owners, operators and employees of Evergreen Pet Shop are all listed in the SCRAPS report and in the charging request.   The case has been turned over to the Spokane County Prosecutors office for review and potential charging for violations of the Revised Code of Washington pertaining to Animal Cruelty in the 1st degree – a class C felony, Animal Cruelty in the 2nd degree – a gross misdemeanor and Confinement in an Unsafe Manner – a misdemeanor.
