Masman Jewelers in Morgantown hosts Black Tie and Tails adoption event

Monongalia

When a black cat crosses your path many people think of the old superstition, but one local organization is trying to change that stereotype.

The Mountaineers for Mutts organization held its second Black Tie and Tails event at Masman Jewelers in Morgantown Thursday evening.

This was an adoption event with 23 black and white cats and kittens in attendance trying to get adopted. President and founder of Mountaineers for Mutts, Debra Tennant, said this was a free event that also included door prizes along with a silent auction to try to raise funds for its cat rescue efforts.

“We’re featuring cats that are either black, or black and white and they’re all decked out with with bow ties, it’s a very formal thing, but also black cats and black dogs typically are harder to adopt out of the local shelters, so we felt that they deserved a little bit of a bigger feature to try and find them homes,” said Tennant.
