Pet lovers: Want to shop for a gift for yourself on Black Friday?

The Fairfax County Animal Shelter is hosting Black Fur-Day on Nov. 29.

The shelter says fees will be waived on adoptions of all black and mostly-black dogs and cats. Black and darker-colored animals take longer to be adopted so the shelter is offering a special promotion to bring them extra attention.

The shelter is located at 4500 West Ox Rd., Fairfax. Hours: 10 a.m. to 5 p.m.

The shelter has more than 25 dogs and puppies, 40 cats and kittens, and dozens of small pets like turtles, birds, snakes, and guinea pigs.

The shelter is also celebrating its annual Home for the Holidays campaign. All adopters will receive a gift bag full of pet-friendly goodies and half-off adoption fees for all adult pets through Dec. 31.
