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.

      Black cats are considered lucky in the UK - but we rescued one in Canada that had been horribly abused just because of its fur colour, which was so wrong!
