October: Black Cat Discrimination Month
SPA Canada and Black Cat SEO join in supporting black cats
Ottawa October 9, 2020 – The Society for the Protection of Animals (SPA) Canada and Black Cat SEO have joined forces for October in a campaign to destroy prejudice against black cats and promote their adoption rates.
Black cats have long been associated with negative beliefs. SPA Canada and (a well-named) Black Cat SEO want to destroy these prejudices against these creatures and remind people that “as with humans, we must not judge cats by their color,” said Dominique Routhier, Acting Director and Animal Biologist for SPA Canada.
Today, even if black cats are not associated with the myths of witches, negative prejudices still exist. Everyone knows that black cats are unfortunately the least to adopt, and the first to be euthanized when the shelters are full. Black cats stay in shelters 24% longer than other cats. Yet a cat is a cat, whether it is white, black or grey! SPA Canada and Black Cat SEO are joining the fight against black cat discrimination this month to destroy myths about them and promote the adoption of these adorable companions.
