Any dogs or cats that are black or have a significant amount of black are half price.
The society has a 3 to 1 ratio of cats to dogs and a good amount of the cats are black.
All animals are spayed and neutered.
"Making a connection between the animal world and the human world, especially for a little kid, I think it's really important to teach a young child to appreciate connection. They become caring human beings and they care for people more," said Tom Ayres, the president of the Humane Society of Chittenden County.
