Black Friday can be about a lot more then rude crowds and shopping. I support a nonprofit No Kill Cat Shelter in our area, and they are hosting a Black Cat Adoption Special. If you want two cats, they are also offering a discount under their Better With a Buddy Program (1) . If you live in Portland and the six surrounding areas, and are looking for a cat, here is one good option:

The Cat Adoption Team (CAT) is the Pacific Northwest’s largest non-profit, no-kill cat shelter with its own full service veterinary hospital on-site. CAT’s mission is to work with the community to save the lives of homeless, sick and injured cats and kittens by offering shelter, adoption, foster, hospice, spay/neuter and veterinary services to end needless feline euthanasia. A leader in the shelter community with its extensive shelter medicine, adoption and foster care programs, CAT cares for 400 to 600 cats and kittens on a daily basis with the help of a dedicated team of staff and volunteers at CAT’s main shelter in Sherwood, foster homes and various outreach locations throughout the Portland Metro area. CAT not only partners with the community but with local county shelters, rescue groups and veterinary offices to take in cats that might otherwise be running out of options due to medical problems or space constraints. CAT saves over 3, 000 lives per year and relies heavily on the support of the public and generous volunteers. Thank you for visiting our site and helping us save lives!
