Black Friday Adoption

Generally, the day after the U.S.A. Thanksgiving Day is called “Black Friday” and starts off the Christmas shopping season. A lot of people rush to stores in the hopes of getting extra discounted sale prices on Black Friday, but if you check your local newspaper .. you will see a lot of your local pet rescue and adoption centres are having their own Black Friday special! I think it’s a great idea (if you are planning on adopting a pet anyway)

A lot of shelters are offering discounted adoption fees if you come in this Friday to adopt a BLACK cat, dog, or other animal. Some examples in the news are:

* Fees cut for black pets on ‘Black Friday’

* “Black Cat Friday” A Spin-Off to Holiday Shopping

* Sale reduces adoption fees for black pets during November
