June is Adopt-A-Shelter-Cat month, and did you know that black cats are half as likely to be adopted than cats of other colors? The San Francisco SPCA made this cute video extolling the virtues of owning a coal-colored kitty, and I can also tell you from personal experience that black cats have brought me nothing but good luck (and big, big hair)!
If you're thinking about adopting a cat (of any color!) or volunteering, I recommend checking out Petfinder to find a shelter near you. If you can't add another kitty to your home right now, but are looking for other ways to help, Petside posted this great article about "5 Easy Ways To Help Shelter Cats: Low Commitment Edition," that includes simple tips on ways to help make shelter cats' lives better, by simply donating your Facebook status, or throwing a party!
