Adopt a Tuxedo Kitty for Half Price on Tuesdays at AHS
Join the Asheville Humane Society for Tuxedo Tuesdays – Every Tuesday in the month of September is a ‘Tuxedo Tuesday.’ Adopt a black-and-white ‘tuxedo’ cat for half off the usual adoption fee.
The fee to adopt a cat is normally $85; during the month of September on Tuesdays only, the fee will be $42.50. Kittens, usually $100, will be $50. In addition, if you adopt a tuxedo cat and you would like to adopt another cat, the fee for the second cat is waived. Any cat that is black-and-white (or even an all black cat with only one white whisker!) is considered a ‘tuxedo’ in the month of September.
