Lady adores people and one of her favorite activities seems to be riding in the car seat next to you. Lady has been in her FIDO training program for three weeks. Lady needs to live in a home with no cats. If you are interested in meeting Lady, contact Kim Lytle at (509) 892-2483. Her adoption fee is $125 and includes her rabies vaccine, first year’s license and follow-up training.

Foundation for Invested Dog Ownership is a volunteer organization of dog trainers who come to the shelter to train the dogs. FIDO dogs have solid temperaments but need a little extra help winning someone’s heart – and good-dog behavior does that. A home visit is required before the adoption can be approved. Adopters of FIDO dogs are asked to attend a free training class at SCRAPS so that they can maintain training.
