Jessica Townsend says this time of year is tough for animal shelters.

"A lot of times, late November, early December, people aren't coming in because they do like to pair the bringing of a new pet home with a special event like Christmas," Townsend says.

Townsend is hoping a Black Friday Adoption Sale will help. All adoptions are half price. normally the humane society charges 170 dollars to adopt dog, and 85 dollars for a cat.

Townsend says the shelter can help find a good fit.

"The pets we have here -- we do often know something about their background...we can do a fair bit of matching," she says.

The Washington Humane Society currently has dozens of cats and dogs, as well as birds and rabbits available.
