Cat Color Discrimination

Discrimination: Against black and black and white cats!

Did you know?

  • Black cats and black and white cats are the least often adopted.
  • These cats spend the most time living in shelters, waiting to be adopted.
  • At times, shelters won’t accept these cats for their adoption programs because of their color.

You can increase public awareness of this little known form of discrimination by talking about it, and you can help end it by adopting, or encouraging someone to adopt, a beautiful black or black and white kitty. Please consider them the next time you open your home to a new pet.
