Shelters and rescues around the country are celebrating Black Cat Appreciation Day on Aug. 17. 

The ASPCA says due to outdated and incorrect myths and superstitions, black cats have a really hard time getting adopted.

Also, black cats simply don't stand out in photos online, so they are often overlooked.

That’s why shelters are celebrating the black cats and encouraging people to adopt them.

So if you're looking to adopt, head to your local shelter and check out the black kitties.
