For the month of November the Cat Care Society in Lakewood will be partnering with the Best Friends Animal Society to offer the Back in Black adoption program for black cats. All black cats at the CCS will be “Name Your Price” for November.
A recent study by Colorado State University verified the long-held belief that cats with black fur have longer shelter stays than cats with other colors, even black and white or “Tuxedo” cats. The CCS would like to point out that black cats make wonderful pets so for the month of November adopters can “Name Your Price” on any black cat the shelter has up for adoption.
The shelter’s Back in Black campaign states, “Although they’re every bit as adorable and sweet as other animals, pets in black often wait longer for homes than their lighter-colored pals. So Best Friends created the Back in Black campaign to shine a spotlight on these often-overlooked pets and help them find good homes.”
So for those looking for a new cat or kitten, visit the Cat Care Society and check out these black beauties: Brietta, Cairo, Caroline, Charlene, Isaac, Mo, Saturn, Talia, Tara and Venus. More information about these wonderful cats can be found on the CCS website or on the Petfinder.com adoption page.
