It's not too late to score an unconventional, but cuddly Black Friday deal. The Pima Animal Care Center is holding a Black Fur Day sale in hopes of finding homes for animals that need them.

Nikki Reck, a spokeswoman with PACC says the Black Fur Day deal is a great deal.

"If they're over four months old and they have a black spot, a black stripe, black fur, they're free. So, you'll only have to pay the 19 dollars for the licensing fee for a dog, and that's per dog," she said.

All pets adopted from PACC come spayed or neutered, with age-appropriate vaccinations, a microchip, and a free vet visit with the doctor of your choice.

Dogs that do not have a speck of black are still cheaper than usual, Reck said.

"Then, all other pets in the building, if they're four months and older--half off for their adoptions," she said.

The Black Fur Day sale runs until 7 p.m.
