Debunking the Myth: Black Cat Safety on Halloween

This month, as in previous Octobers over recent years, many animal shelters across the country are running adoption specials for black cats.

Consider the fact that shelters have a vetting process. This does not put black cats in danger, but rather it saves their lives.
