Couple adopts the last dog left in the shelter, disabled German Shepherd
In the animal world, Black Friday means much more than crazy crowds and great savings. Many shelters are waiving their adoption fees over the Thanksgiving weekend to help pets in their care find accommodation for the holidays.
