CBHS Celebrates National Black Cat Day…All Week!

It should come as no surprise that the Cedar Bend Humane Society has a LOT of cats waiting for homes.  And black cats are certainly no exception.

Maybe it’s just a coincidence, or maybe it’s superstition, but black cats are less than half as likely to get adopted from shelters as cats of other colors.

Monday, August 17 was National Black Cat Appreciation Day.  Here at CBHS, we think our black cats deserve to be celebrated all WEEK, so we’re extending our promotion through the weekend.

From now until Sunday, bring in a qualifying wet or dry cat food donation, and we’ll waive the adoption fee for any black or partially black kitty!  Kittens too young to have been altered will still include a refundable $50 spay/neuter deposit.

We will accept any brand of wet food, but are specifically looking for Iams, Science Diet, and Purina One dry food.
