On Black Friday, why not shop for a black pet? – OregonLive.com

Instead of fighting crowds at the mall on the seasons’s busiest shopping day, two area shelters are hoping you’ll shop for a new pet (preferably a black one# instead.

Black animals are often overlooked at shelters, so some use the day after Thanksgiving, known as Black Friday, as an opportunity to find these animals homes for the holidays.

Cat Adoption Team offers a $10 adoption special for black or mostly black adult cats #12 months and older) 11 a.m.-7 p.m. on Friday, Nov. 25. The $10 adoption promotion is only available on that day.

The shelter also offers a 50 percent adoption discount for all other cats at the shelter now through Nov. 30. About 100 cats that are black or mostly black are available for adoption at the shelter.

When you adopt a cat from CAT, you’ll also receive $10 off a $50 purchase in CAT’s in-shelter boutique if you adopt a cat from the shelter (CAT also reminds us that its 2012 CAT calendar is now available for $10).
