Calverton, NY - October 24th, 2013 - Kent Animal Shelter is holding a “Back in Black” promotion throughout November to highlight adorable, adoptable black dogs, cats, puppies and kittens. It is part of a promotion across the United States being supported by national animal welfare organization Best Friends Animal Society. Adoption fees for black animals are 50 percent off!

“Rescue groups and shelters across the country know black cats and dogs are often incredibly friendly and loving, sometimes really silly, they can be your best hiking buddy or a real lap baby….they each have their own personality. Unfortunately, they get overlooked. By participating in this national promotion and featuring only black animals -- and cutting adoption fees in half -- we are hoping people will take a second look and get to know these characters for the wonderful four-footed family members they can be,” said Pam Green, Kent’s executive director.
This adoption event is part of Best Friends Animal Society’s lofty, but reachable goal of No More Homeless Pets, which aims to end the killing of dogs and cats in America’s shelters. Kent Animal Shelter is a participating member of the No More Homeless Pets Network, a program of Best Friends Animal Society, offers help and support to animal rescue groups that save lives in their communities.
Kent Animal Shelter is a 501C3 organization established in 1968 in Calverton, NY that provides a no-kill haven for homeless animals, adoption services, a spay/neuter clinic, and humane education. Please visit their website for more information.
