That's why Orange County Animal Services is hosting a special speed dating event Friday to help match some of their loving animals with forever homes.
Speed daters will be able to walk past 80 dog kennels and 50 cat kennels during the event, then when they feel that special spark they can take the cat or dog to one of the interaction areas to see if it really is puppy love at first sight.“There’s no doubt you’ll fall in love with one of our great shelter pets,” Dil Luther, division manager of Orange County Animal Services, said in a press release.
“So if you’re looking for that purrfect Valentine I encourage you to visit the shelter.”The speed dating event coincides with the shelter's Furever Love adoption promotion, reducing the price per pet by to for cats and for dogs.
But if you can't narrow it down to just one, know that the shelter is doing a buy-one-get-one-free special on cats all year long, and that includes the friendly felines at the speed dating event.
