Black Cat

Did you know that during the month of October many adoption centers and animal shelters are afraid that the black cats that they adopt may be used to accessorize haunted houses or used in cult rituals? Many of these agencies will not adopt black cats throughout the month of October due to the fear that the cat will be adopted for these means and then returned.

Studies have shown that black cats at adoption centers often get overlooked, not only during the month of October, but throughout the year. The color of a cat certainly has no effect upon its personality or qualities it may have, but cats of multi-colors such as white, brown, and orange are more likely to be adopted than a black cat.

The Mary S. Roberts Pet Adoption Center has decided to be part of the movement to "de-bunk" myths surrounding black cat adoptions during this time of year and celebrate our black cat population with a "Me & My Shadow" Campaign on October 30th, 31st and November 1st and 2nd.

All black or black & white cats will have a reduced adoption fee, Adult Cats: $25, Kittens $35.  Adopters who adopt a black or black & white cat will receive $10 in Critter Cash to our Pet Store and a free carrier.

All cats & kittens are micro-chipped, are spayed/neutered and have received age appropriate vaccinations.  Click here to view cats and kittens awaiting forever homes.
