Black may be the choice of chic dresses and power business suits, but it is the toughest color for dogs and cats who need new homes.
Black pets seem to hide in the dark shadows of runs and cages at shelters, and the color often doesn’t photograph well in adoption pictures. Some people are under the misconception that black dogs and cats are meaner and more threatening.
Under those neon coats, which are usually glossy and shining once they’re groomed and brushed, they are bright and loving pets. So take a special look at the black cats and dogs when you’re looking for a new family member at your shelter or rescue group. They really need your love!
