Back in Black 2013

Back in Black - the national campaign dedicated to finding great homes for black cats and dogs - is back for a third lifesaving year!

We all know that amazing pets come in every color, but strangely, pets in black often wait longer than their lighter-colored counterparts to get adopted.

So we're showcasing these fabulous animals the entire month of November.

Special adoption events will be hosted throughout the month by Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, our Los Angeles and Salt Lake City adoption centers, and participating No More Homeless Pets Network partners around the country.

Thanks for caring about pets in black. Together, we can Save Them All™.

Check out these locations listed below to find your adoptable pet in black.

Best Friends Animal Sanctuary

Fall in love with a pet in black at Best Friends Animal Sanctuary but live outside the area? No problem! We'll spring for the transportation. Best Friends Animal Sanctuary will be waiving their adoption fees for all pets in black for a limited time. Learn more about adopting a pet in black from Best Friends Animal Sanctuary.
