An animal shelter in Western Massachusetts is getting into the Black Friday madness by offering furry felines for just $5.
The Dakin Pioneer Valley Humane Society said starting at noon Friday until 5:30 p.m., all of their cats 6 months old or older can be adopted for the $5 bargain and that even includes all the "trimmings" like its spay/neuter surgery, all vaccinations, testing, microchipping, a jewel-tone collar, an ID tag and even a bag of starter food.
"We always have many lovely cats in need of homes and right now there is an abundance of felines who fit that description," said Executive Director Leslie Harris. "We're eager to see great cats find new homes and, in addition, adopting one of our $5 felines helps Dakin make room for cats in need of placement from shelters in Hurricane Sandy ravaged areas. Together, we can save lives."
Dakin said she was assisting other animal shelters that have been hit hard after Hurricane Sandy by receiving animals already in shelters when the massive storm hit.
The $5 cats will be offered at the shelters two locations. The Dakin Adoption and Education Center in Springfield is located at 171 Union St., or at the shelter's Leverett location at 163 Montague Rd.
