Black Friday goes to the dogs in Wichita

Associated Press Published: November 22, 2012

WICHITA, Kan. (AP) — For a 12-year-old Wichita girl, Black Friday is taking on a whole new meaning.

Madison Bell volunteers at the Kansas Humane Society and says too many black dogs are staying in shelters longer because adoptees often end up preferring lighter-colored animals.

Bell wants to change that. The Wichita Eagle ( ) reports that on Friday, Bell will help host the Black Dog Adoption Drive to help darker pups find homes. During the nine-hour event, the Humane Society will waive adoption fees for all black animals.

Society spokeswoman Jennifer Campbell says a bias exists against black dogs, often because their facial expressions are harder to see and to photograph.
