NOBLESVILLE, Ind. (Nov. 27, 2013)– The Humane Society for Hamilton County (HSHC) announced today that Black Friday is going to be the real deal at the shelter with all black, or partially black, coated dogs and cats available for adoption at fees as low as $5.00.

“We are offering for the first time in the shelter’s history the opportunity to adopt select dogs at a reduced fee of $5 if you are one of the early birds arriving on Friday between 8am and 10am,” said Rebecca Stevens, executive director of the Humane Society. “We have offered the $5 discount for cats before, but it’s still a rare opportunity to get an amazing, lifelong companion for such a reduced fee.”

The Humane Society for Hamilton County’s philosophy is based on giving every animal, regardless of age, breed, medical needs or disability their best chance for a second chance. However, they rely on a steady flow of adoptions to ensure there is always enough room for the day’s new arrivals. Even with some great adoption days over the last couple of months, there are still over 500 animals in the Humane Society’s care who are waiting for homes.

“Our Black Friday adoption special is designed to offer the best discounts the earlier you arrive that day,” said Jennifer Judd, marketing manager for the Humane Society. “We will be opening the doors early on Friday with $5.00 adoption fees from 8am to 10am, $10 fees from 10am to 12pm, $15 fees from 12pm to 2pm and then $20 fees from 2pm to 5pm for all eligible animals.”

Adoption fees include the spay/neuter, microchip, at least one round of vaccines, 30 days of pet health insurance and a free wellness exam with a participating veterinarian.

“Instead of waking up at the crack of dawn to stand in line for year’s hottest toy or video game, why not consider changing your life, while saving another, for as little as $5.00,” added Stevens.
