The amazing deals at Helping Hands Humane Society were something to bark about on the busiest shopping day of the year.

The shelter hosted Black "Furday" all day Friday.

Adoption fees for all black or mostly black animals were waived Friday only.

Officials at the shelter say that black animals are the hardest to find forever homes for.

"I have two black dogs already and my adopt-a-mom told me that black dogs don't get adopted as often, and she volunteers here, and so I was like 'what? I have to go get a dog now!", said Chianne Martinez.

"This was fun for us because it looked like we were one of those major retailers at 11:30 when we opened," said Bill Acree, Executive Director of Helping Hands Humane Society. "We had folks backed up and out into the parking lot just waiting to come through the doors."

Helping Hands also offered a $10 discount on all other pets Friday.

On the Helping Hands Humane Society Facebook page, they said they had a new daily record of 38 adoptions -- many of which were black or mostly black animals.
