For the first time in more than a decade, SpokAnimal says they have run out of non-clumping cat litter.
SpokAnimal uses non-clumping litter because the litter boxes are completely changed out every day due to the risk of disease. Staff and volunteers have been forced to use shredded paper and clumping litter as a temporary substitute.
SpokAnimal CARE Director Gail Mackie says it has been an extremely busy season with hundreds of cats and kittens coming into the shelter.
The shelter's cat room uses about 10 pounds of litter every day.
SpokAnimal accepts donations at the humane society Monday through Friday, 9 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Saturday and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.
