Did you know that black cats and dogs are often overlooked by potential pet adopters? Perhaps the hesitation is due to folklore and superstition. Many years ago, black cats were associated with bad luck and thought of as familiars to witches. Black dogs were associated with the supernatural.
There are cats and dogs of all colors, shapes and sizes who are in need of loving homes. If you are considering adding to your family with a new pet, consider adoption as there are so many great animals just waiting to be adopted from shelters across the nation. Rescue groups often have foster families caring for wonderful pets who are also available for adoption. If you have a very specific breed in mind, consider contacting a rescue group for that particular breed.

And forget the folklore…be sure to think about adopting that black cat or dog!
