You can get a good deal on a lot of items this Black Friday, including a new pet.
Broward County’s animal shelter is letting potential adopters name their own price on a dog or cat between 11 a.m. and 3 p.m. Friday.
According to Lisa Mendheim, who is the public education coordinator for the shelter, you really can name any price—even a penny.
“We’ll take it,” Mendheim said with a laugh. “We usually have people a little more generous than that. We’ve had people give hundreds of dollars for a pet and then others give what they can.”
South Florida shoppers wiped the turkey gravy off their lips and got in line to shop last night as Black Friday morphed backward into Thursday to kick off an ever-earlier Christmas shopping season.
Lines for the early deals began forming before sundown on Thanksgiving and the scenes at the big boxes and malls grew more hectic and even chaotic overnight.
