Black Fur-day’ is back with name-your-price adoptions at Young-Williams Animal Center

Find a furry companion and be thankful all year round during the ‘Black Fur-day’ special at Young-Williams Animal Center on Nov. 23-25 featuring name-your-price adoptions for all pets, excluding puppies.

The three-day special starts on Black Friday, the traditional post-Thanksgiving shopping day, and continues all weekend at both shelter locations at 3201 Division Street and 6400 Kingston Pike. Both locations are open from 10 a.m.-6 p.m. daily and close from 1-2 p.m. for an hour of quiet time for the animals.

“Our kennels are full right now, and we’d love for these pets to find a forever home in time for the holidays,” says Janet Testerman, CEO of Young-Williams Animal Center. “Pets give back so much love and companionship. Please open your hearts this holiday season and save a shelter animal.”

Adopters will be asked to make a mandatory donation in the amount of their choosing to Young-Williams Animal Center. As always, cats 3 years and older are free to adopt. The adoption fee for puppies remains $250.

Every animal adopted during the “Black Fur-day” special promotion will receive the same services covered by the regular adoption fees, which include a veterinary exam, spay/neuter surgery, some standard vaccinations, a microchip with registration and more. All adopters also will be screened by shelter staff.

“Nothing would make us or our animals more thankful than to empty our cages during the Thanksgiving holiday weekend,” Testerman says. “If you have been thinking about making a pet a part of your home, now is the time to adopt and bring a furry companion into your family.”
