Our shelter does, they make you wait until after Halloween. Gives them more time to check you out to make sure you want to adopt for good reasons.

We don't have a policy for black cats in October. We really don't place very many cats, and we've hardly ever had black ones available.

When some people from SCARF attended the "Adoption Options" workshop a few years back, we were told that there wasn't any evidence that bad things happened to black cats that were adopted near Halloween. Most rescues and shelters require applications, adoption fees, interviews, etc., so it would be difficult for someone with ulterior motives to obtain a cat of any color. I would imagine that people who want to hurt cats answer the ads for "free" cats and kittens.

In this area the rescue groups are really picky.
Sometimes the shelters are loosey goosey.

Our shelter checks with landlords to make sure they allow pets, they check the credit to make sure folks can afford a pet, and check to make sure they haven't been charged or turned in for animal cruelty. Sometimes the fosterers insist on visiting the prospective home too.

a lot of rescue groups have people who are trained to go to houses and what to look for in adopters. i know at one point andrea was one of those and used to go check on who wanted to adopted the rescue weinies.

I just saw an ad in the newspaper last night that offered "free kittens--mostly black--to good home". I just hope nasty bad people don't respond to that ad.
