McKamey Animal Center > We are opening an hour early on Black Friday to bring you our biggest adoption event ever with Name Your Own Price adoptions! It’s a perfect time to add that special four-legged family member. All animals come with age appropriate vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery, and microchip. We will be open from 10:00 am until 5:30 pm. Adopt, don’t shop!


Humane Educational Society > It’s Black Friday and we’re slashing adoption fees on pets with any black fur. They can be solid black or have a single black spec, either way they will make great companions at a great price! Adoption fees are $30 for dogs with black and $15 for cats with black. Adoption fee includes all age appropriate vaccines, spay or neuter surgery and a microchip. Black animals are the least likely to be adopted in shelters around the country but they are just as lovable and make wonderful companions. Help us show the world that black animals make great pets and find your forever friend just in time to share the holidays together!
