In an effort to find more families for black felines, the Toledo Area Humane Society and Planned Pethood, Inc. will offer reduced prices on black cats and kittens through July 13.
Whether because of color preference or superstition, black cats have been found to be far less likely to be adopted than other cats. Shelters across the country have noted that black cats spend the longest in shelters and are also more likely to be euthanized.
The promotion offers black kittens for $30 each or two for $50, and black cats for $20 each or two for $35.
Non-black kittens will be $55 each or two for $90, and non-black cats will be $40 each or two for $70.
Cats and kittens from the Toledo Area Humane Society will be available at 1920 Indian Wood Circle, Maumee, and at Petco in Bowling Green, Petsmart in Rossford, and ReTail Shop in Toledo. Planned Pethood’s felines will be available at Petsmart Spring Meadows.
