KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WVLT) -- Oak Ridge will offer half-price adoptions on all black cats beginning June 10 through June 30. Adoption prices for these cats will be $55 instead of the normal price of $110.

Robin Smith, who serves as a volunteer spokesman for the Oak RIdge Animal Shelter, says it's something the shelter does occasionally.

"It's tougher to get black dogs and cats adopted; they don't photograph well," Smith said. "We want to give all animals an equal shot."

Smith said the shelter did half-price adoptions on all animals earlier this year and had a high adoption rate; they hope to see the same thing happen with their cats.

The City of Oak Ridge Animal Shelter is open Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. For more information, call (865) 425-3423.
