"Back in Black" adoption promotion

Supported by Best Friends Animal Society®, adoption fees 50% off!

Jersey City, N.J. August 4, 2011 ─  Black tie, black t-shirt or a little black dress…this year’s hot trend is furry, black and will lick your face or purr for you. Whatever your taste, add style and love to your life by adopting a beautiful black dog or cat during the national "Back in Black" adoption promotion. Adoption fees for black animals are 50 percent off!

Liberty Humane Society is holding a “Back in Black,” promotion between Monday, Aug. 15 and Saturday, Sept. 17 to highlight adorable, adoptable black dogs, cats, puppies and kittens. It is part of 34-day promotion across the United States being supported by national animal welfare organization Best Friends Animal Society®.

“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 Daria Benstead, volunteer coordinator for Liberty Humane Society.
