Black Cat Adoption Stand

In honor of Halloween and the October full moon we've been busy at the Greenville PetSmart since October 10th having a special adoption stand for our black cats!  Before we left for the Luv-A-Pet center in Petsmart 59% of our feline residents were black or mostly black, a common trend in shelters.  Because black cats are associated with negative stereotypes and can be more difficult to see in their cages they tend to take the longest to find their forever homes.

To combat this trend we took 6 of our loveable black cats to Petsmart and it's been a HUGE success!

So far we've found homes for one all black kitten named Belle, a black and white kitten named Aurora, and one of our long-time residents and all around purrrfect kitties: SHADOW!  We are so glad that all of them found their forever homes this week and I'm sure their new owners are raving about the good luck they've had since those black cats crossed their paths!

If you're interested in adopting one of our black cats please stop by the Greenville PetSmart during any of the following times:

Sunday October 16th from 2-5pm
Monday October 17th through Friday October 21st from 5:30-8pm
Saturday October 22nd from 11-5pm
Sunday October 23rd from 2-5pm

Currently at Petsmart we have 6 cats available for adoption:

Brandon!  A sweet little gentleman who is just over a year old and loves treats and attention!
****UPDATE 10/16****
Brandon was adopted today!!

Two kittens from "The Office" littler are still available, Jim, and Stanley who is always busy doing a crossword puzzle waiting for his forever home!
Jim & Stanley have both been adopted!

One kitten named Jasmin who is mostly black with a smudge of white on her face. She is about 11 weeks old and eagerly awaiting her forever home since her sister Aurora got adopted!
Jasmin has been adopted!

Two adult sister cats names Lucy and Aggie who have been with us for a while and would love to go home with YOU!  They are about one year old and have been with us for some time so we are really hoping they get adopted during this special event.

Please visit our website or check out our facebook page to see photos of these great cats!

Many of the HSEC staff members have (or have fostered) black cats and we promise you they love pumkins!  Check out our black cats available for adoption at Petsmart this week or stop by the facility, we have more black cats, black dogs, and other wonderful animals waiting to find their forever homes!
