Israelis have shown a preference for adopting light-colored animals from shelters, the ISPCA, Israel Society for the Protection of Cruelty to Animals, says.

As a result, the organization has begun a new push against the discrimination of animals with black and darker fur, reminding people that all animals are created equal.
