As the month of October rolls around, the Roice-Hurst Humane Society will adopt out black cats but won't let them leave their establishment until November.

This is because black cats are a target for cruelty during Halloween. The shelter has had different experiences like a cat having its eyes poked out, cats being dipped in oil and then set on fire, and even being hung from trees and gutted.

All black cats are available for adoption. The only stipulation, they must stay at the Roice Hurst facility until November. This is to guarantee the cats safety.
