SCRAPS a good deal for Liberty Lake

Liberty Lake needs to show some heart and soul to find money in the budget to renew the contract with SCRAPS. Don’t they realize the added value that SCRAPS provides?

The SCRAPS Hope Foundation, low-cost spay and neuter vouchers, dog obedience classes to help people deal with problem pets to keep them out of the shelter system, the Patricia Simonet dog park, the Mutt Strutt, programs that donate doghouses to people who can’t afford to buy them for their pets, and programs to transport pets to shelters where they have a better chance to be adopted into loving forever homes are just some of the many services that will be threatened by Mayor Peterson’s desire to make animal control “revenue neutral.”

The Spokane County Regional Animal Protection Service has a great reputation and has cultivated trusted relationships within the community, with our local businesses, with our local vets, with the Animal Advocates, and with the many animal rescue groups that work with SCRAPS within our local community. Let’s move forward with SCRAPS. We are already getting more than a fair deal!
