Black Everyday: Animal shelter promotion features black cats, dogs

CUMBERLAND — With Black Friday soon approaching, the Allegany County Animal Shelter has declared Black Everyday during the month of November.

Celebrating the second anniversary of a “shelter of hope” policy, all black cats and dogs may be adopted during November for only $2 each.

All other colors may be adopted for just $20.12. Most of the adoptable animals have been microchipped and are up-to-date on shots. Many of the animals have been spayed or neutered.

“We have so many wonderful animals that need to find a home and a family,” said shelter director Karl Brubaker. “Black November is our way of promoting, and hopefully adopting out, many of our animals.”

Adoptable shelter animals can be seen at or by visiting the shelter located at 716 Furnace St.

Shelter hours are weekdays from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Saturday from 9 a.m. to noon.
