'Friends of the Animal Shelter' in Aiken are working overtime this November, hoping to get black dogs and black cats adopted.
Officials said there is a stigma attached to many black-haired animals, and blond or brown dogs and cats are usually the first to find homes.
Through the month of November, anyone looking for a dog with black hair can adopt for a fee of $35. The fee to adopt a cat is $20. Both prices include shots, micro chipping and spay and neuter.
