WILLIAMSBURG, Va. (WVEC) -- The Heritage Humane Society is working to spotlight black cats and dogs by offering a special adoption discount before Halloween.

“These unfounded black cat myths prevent many wonderful pets from finding loving homes,” said Darci VanderSlik, the marketing manager for the shelter.

From now until Halloween, HHS is discounting black cat and dog adoptions by $31. The fee reduction will also be honored for cats or dogs with any black spots on their coats.

The $31 discount includes spay/neuter surgery, a wellness exam, deworming, basic feline and canine vaccines, a microchip and more.
