To pet food and pet supplies manufacturers: Feature black cats and dogs in your advertising.

Black (and black and white) cats and dogs are largely ignored at shelters--they are the least likely to get adopted in favor of "flashier" colors. There are also still ignorant people who believe that black denotes bad luck. I have noticed that pet food companies and pet supply companies have never featured a black coated cat or dog in their advertising or commercials or on their website or product packaging. Featuring a black coated cat or dog in their advertising would help dispel the myths and promote these animals as loving pets, helping to raise their visibility in shelters.
