Animal Shelter’s Black Fur-Day

The Fairfax County Animal Shelter is holding its own version of Black Friday, on Nov. 29, called Black Fur-Day. The shelter will be open from 10 a.m.-5 p.m. and fees will be waived that day on adoptions of all black and mostly-black dogs and cats. Black and darker-colored animals take longer to be adopted, so this special promotion is to bring them extra attention.

And now through Dec. 31, all adopters will receive a gift bag full of pet-friendly treats and half-off adoption fees for all adult pets. The shelter is at 4500 West Ox Road in Fairfax.
