SPOKANE, Wash. – The crash on I-90 Friday morning has had an unexpected benefit for hundreds of cats at SCRAPS.
According to Washington State Patrol, two semis collided on I-90 near Medical Lake. One of the semis rolled over in the median leaving cat food blocking the roadway westbound. No one was injured.
SCRAPS was called by the towing company as they started cleaning up the highway. Members of SCRAPS, volunteers and some helpful citizens quickly responded and were able to salvage hundreds of cans and boxes of cat food.
SCRAPS leaders said they are headed into the busy season and will begin impounding as many as 30-40 animals per day.
"During the busy season, donations at the shelter go down. We are so thankful someone thought to call us and the bulk of the food didn't end up going to waste," said Nancy Hill, Executive Director of SCRAPS.
