The Most Dangerous Stores on Black Friday

Sick of waiting in insane lines and nearly getting trampled to death the day after Thanksgiving for deals that tend to be mediocre at best? One retailer is looking to provide you with the best possible alternative.

This Friday, thanks to online retailer Zappos.com, you can bring home a new furry friend to love for the low cost of $0.00.

Zappos is teaming up with Best Friends Animal Society to completely cover the cost of dog and cat adoptions at 150 rescue centers across the country, from Black Friday through Cyber Monday.

The process is simple: You simply locate a participating adoption center near you, find the furry friend you want to adopt, contact the shelter, and let them know you want to adopt between Nov. 27 and 30.

After that, Zappos will take care of the adoption fees, and also donate an additional $150 on top of that to Best Friends to help cover the cost of food, medical care, immunizations, training and more for animals awaiting homes. The best part? There's absolutely no purchase necessary.

So what's the motivation behind this random act of kindness? The reason is simply to make the season bright, and have a positive impact on the world. Last year during the holidays, Zappos donated 10 meals per order placed on Zappos.com (up to 5,000,000 meals), in partnership with Feeding America.



So instead of dropping your fork and ditching your family at 6pm to rush out and grab the newest video game console on Thanksgiving night, opt to stay home, and you can provide a loving home for an animal in need the next day.

Isn't that what the holidays are all about?
