It’s Black Friday tomorrow, and instead of waiting in lines and fighting crowds, the Windsor-Essex Humane Society wants Windsorites to help combat “Black Animal Syndrome”.

The problem that plagues animal rescues and Humane Societies across the nation is simply that black-furred animals have a difficult time finding their forever homes.

The Humane Society’s Melanie Coulter says, “Whether it is due to silly superstition, or because they lack the interesting patterns and colours of other available animals; black cats and dogs can sit waiting for months”.

Tomorrow, on Black Friday, the Humane Society is hoping that you will come out and bring some love into your homes in the form of the numerous black animals, including dogs, cats, and rabbits.

All black animals (any with the majority of their fur solid black) will have their adoption fee reduced by 50 percent!

The Black Friday special is one day only, during adoption hours from 11am to 8pm.

You can view the Humane Society’s animals online at www.windsorhumane.org.
