Yesterday was Friday the 13th.... Wooooo spooky! Nah, not really :)
Did you know that black cats and dogs are less likely to be adopted??
Its true and rather ridiculous. Have we not yet learned color means nothing? Only what is in your heart and soul matter not the color of your skin or fur!!
Even rescue groups discriminate against the animals they are saving. Many groups won't take pets that they don't think they will be able to adopt despite their need for a rescue/shelter. I have experience this first hand as a litter of kittens was abandoned at my clinic. We called a rescue willing to take them but then they asked what they looked like, and began making snide comments about how they were all black and would be very difficult to place.
Response in my head: Shut the hell up, these are babies in need. Take them or not but I don't need your stupid fucking comments. UGH. Needless to say we don't call that rescue anymore since they apparently discriminate based on coat color.
Have we not learned anything from human history? Stop discriminating based on looks. Damnit.
