COLUMBUS, GA (WTVM) - A Columbus animal shelter is doing their part to help one type of overlooked shelter animal find a loving furr-ever home.
In honor of Black Cat Appreciation Day, PAWS Humane waived all adoption fees to any black or black and white cat that is three months or older at the shelter on Wednesday.
Employees say black cats are typically adopted less frequently, and they simply want to make sure they can find a home as well.
"Black Cat Appreciation was made because a lot of the cats were getting overlooked. a lot of it due to superstition, which a lot of it is untrue," said Animal Care Tech Tyree Brown.
Even if you missed out on Wednesday, you can still visit PAWS Humane any time during their hours of operations to adopt a black cat or any other animal for that matter.
