The Portage Animal Protective League is having its own version of a Black Friday sale after Thanksgiving.
On Nov. 23 and 24, the Portage APL will discount prices on black cats up for adoption. Kitten, adult and senior cat adoption fees on black cats will only be $10 (for qualified adopters) at the Portage Animal Protective League in Shalersville. Regular fees are $50.
"Other businesses have huge sales on Black Friday and so many folks are out shopping. We thought, why not? Black cats are adopted less often than other colors and we have almost 20 that are great, great cats." said Bev Bickley, shelter manager.
"People may have off work for a few more days than usual and be able to spend that extra time with a new family member." The Portage APL is hoping to increase adoptions and find loving homes for as many cats as possible this holiday season.
Portage APL is a private, nonprofit organization and relies on the generosity and kindness of individuals and businesses to make our community a safer place for thousands of animals who have no voice.
