The Animal Care & Control Team of Philadelphia (ACCT Philly) will host a most unique Black Friday event tomorrow, by offering reduced pet adoption fees, with an especially deep discount for those who adopt black pets.
For just one day, the adoption fees will be $5 for cats, $10 for dogs, $100 for puppies, with fees waived for black animals. So they’re free! Plus, the agency will be open during extended hours, from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m.
As those who work at rescues will tell you, black pets, especially cats, are the least likely to be adopted and the most likely to get euthanized in shelters. As I have been mom to two black kitties, I can tell you that they are wonderful pets that deserve good homes. And you sure can’t beat that price.
ACCT Philly is at 111 W. Hunting Park Ave. in North Philadelphia. Visit their website at www.acctphilly.org.
