Already this summer, SCRAPS Animal Protection Officers have responded to dozens of pets left in hot cars. Please leave your pets at home during the summer heat. The temperature inside your car, even with the windows open, can quickly soar to dangerous levels.

The owners of a German shepherd mix that came to SCRAPS surrendered him for an unusual reason – he ate the siding off their house. They lived next to a police shooting range and the dog wanted back in the house any way he could. When he arrived at the shelter his nervous disposition made him unadoptable. He was transferred to Kootenai Humane Society who partners with a group that provides intense training for dogs with just this type of behavior. The dog is doing great in training and will be placed up for adoption shortly.

The tumor was removed (it was benign) and she quickly found a home
