Southampton Animal Shelter is waiving adoption fees for cats, kittens and dogs with black coats on Black Friday, November 27, and Saturday, November 28.
Between noon and 3 p.m. on Friday, the shelter will offer face painting, refreshments, a bake sale and raffles while potential pet parents are invited to come meet adoptable pets.
Shelters typically have an especially hard time finding homes for black dogs and black cats, and in kill shelters black animals are euthanized more often than others. Southampton Animal Shelter, which is a no-kill shelter, periodically offers promotions to encourage adopters to pick black cats and tuxedo cats, as well as black dogs.
