Humane Society Calumet Area Black Friday Event to Feature Adoption Specials and More

This year Humane Society Calumet Area is extending its popular Black Friday Adoption Event to three days, Nov. 27-29. In addition, on Nov. 27 HSCA will offer photos with Santa, a holiday-themed scavenger hunt and more.

Adoption fees will be waived for animals with black markings (a black nose, a black nail, and even black pupils qualify) Nov. 27 through 29. A qualifying application is required. Other exclusions and additional fees may apply.

The adoption special is open to the public and takes place from noon to 7 p.m. Friday through Saturday and noon to 4 p.m. Sunday at the adoption center, 421 45th St, Munster, Ind.

On Friday from noon to 5 p.m., HSCA will offer holiday photos with Santa in front of the building inside a vintage camper decorated for the holiday. Family, friends, couples, children, and pets are welcome to choose from a selection of ugly Christmas sweaters courtesy of Erna & Co. to wear for the photo. Prints are $6 each and proceeds benefit the animals of HSCA. The sweaters will be available for purchase as well.

Additionally on Friday, the public is invited to HSCA’s Paw Pals boutique where gift items for pets and homemade dog treats will be available for purchase and kids can enjoy a holiday-themed scavenger hunt hosted throughout the adoption center for a chance to win a prize.
