‘Back in Black’ UPAWS promotion

MARQUETTE -UPAWS is holding a “Back in Black” adoption promotionthrough Nov. 31 to highlight adorable, adoptable black dogs, cats, puppies and kittens.

Supported by national animal welfare organization Best Friends Animal Society, about 100 animal rescue groups and shelters across the country including the Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter are participating. Last year, the Back in Black adoption event was introduced to showcase black dogs and cats and give them the best chance at being adopted.

Adoption fee 50 percent off for black dogs, and adoption fee-waived for black cats/kittens

After all, the color of a pet’s fur has no relationship to their ability to provide unconditional love and companionship.
