Reduced adoption fees on black dogs and cats

The Santa Fe animal shelter is teaming up with Best Friends Animal Society to help find good homes for homeless harley Samaripets through its special Back in Black adoption promotion through April.

The shelter is waiving the adoption fee on all-black adult animals and offering half-price adoptions on adult dogs and cats with some black in their fur. The adoption fee is waived on all senior dogs, 5 years and older, and senior cats, 9 years and older, with any black in their fur.

The promotion aims to highlight black-furred dogs and cats, many of whom are overlooked simply because of the color of their fur. The shelter is among 160 shelters and rescue groups throughout the nation participating in the promotion. Last year, more than 3,400 black dogs and cats were adopted during the promotion.

To view adoptable dogs and cats, visit the shelter’s website at or call the shelter’s adoption desk at 983-4309, ext. 610, for more information.
