Black Goes with Everything

Hoju (A159296) is a Siberian husky/
border collie mix available for
adoption at the OHS!
This month, the Ottawa Humane Society is highlighting the many wonderful black animals available for adoption with a Black Goes with Everything promotion. 

The event is intended to remind people that black animals make great pets too. Myths about black animals – from black cats being bad luck to black dogs being more aggressive – may cause some potential adopters to overlook these pets.

As part of the promo, people who adopt a black animal in October qualify for two ballots into a draw to win a digital camera from the OHS, valued at $250.

Anyone who brings home a black pet will also get 15 per cent off purchases at the OHS Buddy and Belle Boutique that day, excluding food.

Panther (A154519) is a 5-year-old cat
available for adoption at the OHS!
Adopt a featured black animal in October and get free pet bed. Information on the featured pet is available at the OHS.

The fun isn't limited to adopters. All visitors to the OHS Adoption Centre in October will get one ballot for the camera draw. The winner will be chosen during the OHS Howl-O-Ween party on Oct. 27, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the 245 West Hunt Club Rd. location.
