Believe it or not, dogs and cats with black fur are often overlooked when it comes to adoption. Shelter works say that some of the reasons include that they don’t always photograph well, and people fall prey to superstitions about them.
But never fear — Back in Black 2 is here. The Utah-based Best Friends Animal Society has launched its second annual month-long campaign to find homes for black pets — and their poster with a funny take on Men in Black doesn’t hurt.
Last year, more than 900 pets around the country were adopted during the event, and the group is hoping to break the 1,000-pet mark by the end of May.
