The Coulee Region Humane Society will offer fee-waived adoption rates for all black felines available for adoption every Friday throughout the month of November.
The event, dubbed “Every Friday is Black Friday,” will waive the adoption fees for all black-colored cats and kittens. Cats of these colors are oftentimes overlooked due to superstitions and other misconceptions.
“Aesthetics has a lot to do with it, too,” said Samantha Luhmann, the shelter’s community outreach coordinator. “Many people prefer a calico or a brown tiger because they are more colorful and have bold markings.
“Our hope with this event is to shine a light on our black-colored cats, and showcase their wonderful personalities, which are no less special.”
The discounted adoption rate applies only to black-colored cats. It does not apply to dogs or small animals. There are currently more than 40 black cats and kittens available for adoption at the shelter.
