“All of us in animal rescue know this is true, that black cats and black dogs routinely get overlooked by potential adopters,” said Sherry Silk, Executive Director of the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. “And yet, famous leaders favored black pets. For instance during World War II, U.S. President Franklin Delano Roosevelt had a black dog and British Prime Minister Winston Churchill had a black cat. Both pets actually sat in on strategic meetings.”
But the woman who owned the farm in South Korea wanted to get out of the business. Now, 14 dogs are bound for Tampa, where they'll be put up for adoption by the Humane Society of Tampa Bay.

HSTB is a Managed Admission shelter that works to help stop the needless euthanizing of adoptables animals in the Tampa Bay area. We now take owned adoptable dogs and cats by appointment only. We also transfer more than 3,000 dogs and cats from high-euthanasia facilities to our shelter each year. We do not euthanize a dog or cat to make room for another one. The Humane Society of Tampa Bay, a no-kill for space shelter located in West Tampa, is confronting this issue head-on by holding a “Back in Black” adoption promotion aimed at showcasing their beautiful black pets. From November 1 – 30, adoption fees for all black dogs, cats, puppies and kittens will be half-off.Tampa Bay German Shepherd Rescue welcomes volunteers who wish to help.

She transferred from Boston to Tampa with her company traveling with her 3 cats. All rescues, of course. Shortly after arriving, was shocked to find so many homeless cats in the tampa area and started taking them in, getting them fixed, etc. until she had amassed 28 cats and then finally found a no kill shelter. It was in Pinellas county and so she started volunteering with them, mostly fostering cats and sometimes helping with the chores at the kennels. This gave her an in to help find homes (other than her own) for other cats and dogs found wandering in parking lots , etc. She met Kathy, the cat care coordinator, in the spring of 2005 when Kathy came to a neighbors house to help with a rescued cat. She decided to switch allegiance to st. francis at that time and has been happy to be associated with such a wonderful organization. She currently shares her home with 8 cats, several unadoptable fosters and one stray chihuahua she rescued.
