I know it to be true, because when I used to volunteer at a cat shelter in college we had a ton, but why are black cats considered less adoptable? We adopted one, and he's the best cat in the world. :)
I own (am owned by?) two black rescue cats, and they are awesome.
Black cats and dogs RULE! So do seniors and special needs pets.
Well, I've already done my part. I had 4 black cats at one time, now having had my sweetest black boy Woody put down on July 4, I'm down to one. I wasn't really looking for another cat, but about 3 weeks later kept looking at a poor older boy at my local Petsmart. The staff said he had been there about a month with absolutely no interest from anyone. It got to the point when I or anyone would come into the cat enclosure and all the other cats would come to the front of their cages wanting attention, poor Scruffy would just lay there not even looking since no one ever paid attention. He was part of Alley Cat Rescue and even though his chart said 6 years old, he looked at lot older to me. Long story short, I just had to get him out of that small metal cage and bring him home. Although he is not black, he is older (vet estimates closer to 12), has bad back legs (can't jump up on anything--actually not such a bad thing for me)and has a milky spot on one eye. He is gray and white and I've renamed him Possum and he is getting along well with the others in my herd. Through his file found out he was with a feral group and taken in, in 2010 to be neutered, etc. In 2011 they found him in bad shape (no explanation about what that means) and took him in to recover and found out he was very gentle and docile so he has been in the foster/Petsmart cycle looking for a home for over a year. Well, he is home now!
