Are Black Cats Really At Risk At Halloween?

Earlier in October a rescue organization I follow offered all black cats at a greatly reduced adoption fee for one day only. They explained that the shelter was full at the time and they wanted to make room for new cats and kittens in need.

Followers were outraged and they didn't hold back in letting the organization have it in the comments section. It was accused of being irresponsible and putting cats at risk of being abused or killed at the hands of people who target black cats at this time of year with the intention of harming them. Everyone demanded that all adoptions of black cats be put on hold until after Halloween.

I was pleased with the organization's response.
