Some furry friends have found their forever homes as part of the Charlottesville-Albemarle's Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals’ latest adoption special.

This black-tie adoption affair over the weekend of May 12 and 13 offered a discount for families looking to take home a cat or dog with black fur.

The shelter says black animals often have a harder time getting adopted.

“Typically, it’s just because of kennel lighting, and they typically just don't stand out as much in the darker kennels or cages as the lighter-color animals and they’re just a more prominent color so we get a lot of them in, especially cats,” says Lindsey Huffman, the CASPCA’s adoptions manager.

Families adopting pets also had the opportunity to pull from a hat for a chance to win a free adoption.

Nine black cats and dogs were adopted over the weekend.
