I'm Arya! Contrary to popular belief, I am not bad luck just because my coat is black! The only thing that is true is that it is difficult for cats and dogs with sleek black coats like ours to find homes because people choose to believe the rumors! If you should ask me, I would tell you that I would make a wonderful addition to any family should they take the time to know me as opposed to brushing me off because of something that I have no control over (coat color)! I am like any other cat, in that I love to play, but am also content to bask in the morning sunshine coming through the window! The only difference is that I do not always get the chance! Will you be the family that shuts down the rumor mill and allows me to prove I am not unlucky? Please be that family.



We have many more dogs and cats at the McKamey Animal Center. Please visit our Center to meet your new best friend! All dogs and cats are spayed or neutered, vaccinated and microchipped before adoption.

Hours: 11am-7pm Tuesday thru Saturday and 1pm-5pm on Sunday
