Black cat adoption event
Meow! Won’t you help a black kitty? According to the Companion Animal Trust and Alley Cat Gallery, black cats are victims of the black cat syndrome and are often the last cats adopted from shelters and rescues. Some people associate them with old myths and superstitions that claim black cats are bad luck. This thinking causes more black cats to be euthanized in shelters than non-black cats. The Companion Animal Trust is trying to dispel these myths so more people will choose to adopt a black cat or kitten.
This Sunday, Oct. 25, from 1 to 4 p.m., the Trust and Alley Cat Gallery will host an all black kitten adoption event in Jersey City. The event will take place at the Gallery’s headquarters located between 4th and 5th Streets in the East-West alley between Jersey and Coles Ave. The first adopter will receive a free bag of Halloween Trick or Treat Candy.
All kittens are spayed or neutered and vaccinated prior to adoption. For more information call (201) 884 9649 or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
