If you're gearing up to brave the crowds this Black Friday, consider bringing some Thanksgiving spirit with you and giving an animal in need something to be thankful for.

In the spirit of Black Friday savings, North Shore Animal League America is offering free adoptions for all approved adopters from 9 a.m.-noon on Friday, Nov. 27.

About 350 dogs, cats, puppies and kittens facing euthanasia have been rescued locally from the New York tri-state area as well as from across the country, including a recent rescue of 100 small-breed puppies and dogs rescued from California and flown to Long Island in collaboration with Wings of Rescue.

The animals will be available for adoption at North Shore Animal League America's headquarters, located at 25 Davis Ave., Port Washington.
