An influx of cats to the Spokane Regional Animal Protection Service is prompting the rescue group to offer incentives for adopting one this week.
In the last week, SCRAPS has taken in 24 cats that were released by their owners. That compares to eight during the same period last month. Seven of the cats came from one owner.
Friday and Saturday, adoption fees are $15, which is the cost of the license. Spaying and neutering, vaccinations, exams and microchipping will be free. Adopters will also receive a free SCRAPS tote bag filled with food, treats and toys.
The two-day adoption special will run from noon to 5:30 p.m. both days.
