In shelters all over the world, more black cats (and dogs) are euthanized every day than all other colors combined. The reasons are multiple. In the 21st Century, many folks still think that black cats are bad luck. This creates a problem at the pounds. Since black cats don’t get adopted as quickly as others - or at all - they take up valuable cage space, so they are often put down to make room for “more adoptable” animals. In addition, many shelters refuse to adopt out black cats, for fear they might be sacrificed in certain pseudo-religious rituals, so they’d rather end their lives humanely. The 13th Floor will specialize in black cat and dog adoption. Our motto: “It’s Bad Luck To Be Superstitious.”
First, potential adopters must fill out an adoption application. Then, depending on how the potential adopters fill out the application form, our organization contacts them for an interview, and home visit to check the residence for any potential hazards. Next, assuming they successfully pass the interview and the residence is safe and secure, we begin the process of re-homing an animal to their new adoptive parents.
