National Black Cat Appreciation Day was yesterday, August 17. Did you know that black animals are less likely to be adopted than their light-colored shelter mates? Black cats are often overlooked by potential adopters because of old myths and superstitions that they are bad luck. Please remember that these beliefs are not true! A black cat could be the perfect addition to your family. The lower adoptability of black pets is known as Black Dog Syndrome. In addition to superstitious beliefs of black cats, black pets are also less likely to be adopted because of size, unclear facial features, the “genericness” of black pets, and more. Fight the stigma and adopt a black cat (or dog) today!
