What is better than chocolate, flowers, and dinner for two at a romantic restaurant?
How about puppy cuddles? Or kitten kisses?
Valentine’s Day is coming up, and so for this February 14th why not consider adding some extra love to your home…the four-legged kind! With millions of animals waiting in shelters and rescues, now is a great time to think about adopting a pet.
After all, what’s more loveable than a cat or dog?
So, without further ado…
Here are 3 reasons to consider fostering and/or adopting a pet this Valentine’s Day.
Bring on the Love with Pet Adoption
- Find Your Fluffy Soulmate
First, have you ever heard the term “heart dog?”
This is used to describe that once-in-a-lifetime pooch who takes up a special place in your heart. Sort of like a soulmate (but with paws). Although we tend to think of soulmates as being fellow humans, the truth is animals can be deeply connected to our souls, too.
At Animal Care Centres of NYC, there are currently 300+ pets waiting to be adopted. Browse them by clicking here.
Maybe one is your potential doggy soulmate!
- The Best “Netflix and Chill” Buddy
Secondly, Valentine’s Day is a wonderful time to adopt a pet because by doing so, you will be gaining the best television buddy.
Can’t decide which movie to watch? Tired of arguing over romcoms, thrillers, and actions flicks? Butter on the popcorn or no? With a cat or dog, it doesn’t matter. An adopted pet will just be happy to chill together on the couch.
Cat Adoption Team has kittens and cats eager to be your next “Netflix and Chill” pal.
- Overcome Your Fear of Commitment
Lastly, having a pet is a 24/7 responsibility.
If you are somebody who feels emotionally and financially ready, adopting a pet is a great way to overcome any commitment fears. Never be lonely again!
In summary, sure roses, jewelry, and pink balloons are nice.
But nothing says, “I ruff you” like fostering or adopting a pet for Valentine’s Day! Check out the two animal organizations mentioned above to see available pets and get inspired about other ways to help animals in need.
Wishing you a love-filled Valentine’s Day, from Petting Bliss!
