VALDOSTA, GA (WALB) -

The Lowndes County Humane Society is trying to bring awareness to the low adoption rate of black animals.
 
That's why the humane society is holding an adoption event at Griner Nissan in Valdosta Saturday, May 10th, from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. The event's coordinator hopes this will help prevent many of these animals from ultimately being euthenized.
 
 
"Back in Black is spotlighting the black and mostly black animals. These animals are the most frequently overlooked and, also, unfortunately the most frequently euthanized in shelters," explained Jan McMullen, Back in Black Coordinator and humane society volunteer.
 
 
About 30 dogs and 15-20 cats will be available for adoption. All pets have been spayed or neutered and have their rabies shot. The adoption fee is $95 dollars for dogs and $75 dollars for cats.
