National Black Cat Appreciation Day

The Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Shelter in Marquette County held a special event today. August 17th is national black cat appreciation day.

The shelter is celebrating black cats today because of a “black cat” syndrome that seems to be striking many animal shelters across the country.

Upaws currently has about a dozen black cats. The shelter celebrated the black cats with free adoptions until 4 p–m today.
