Posted by: tdt -

Dalhart Animal Wellness Group and Sanctuary (DAWGS) that has many animal shelters and rescue groups have placed a freeze on all adoptions for black and white cats until after Halloween. Many shelters have reported hearing horror stories of these cats and kittens being tortured and killed in connection with the candy filled holiday.

“We will take adoption applications,” stated Diane Trull. These animal groups hope that by cutting off adoptions, they can reduce the number of animal cruelty cases. Many animal rescue organizations and shelters have noticed an increase and a recent trend of people adopting the cats right before the 31st, and then returning them days later.
