I am thrilled to be a Best Friends Ambassador and share with you information that might encourage you to adopt your next best friend or donate to Best Friends Animal Society. As always, at Daily Dog Tag, we only share information about organizations and products that we believe in.
Valentines Day is just ten days away. I know a lot of people consider Valentines Day to be stressful, annoying and or downright depressing. If you aren’t looking forward to spending Valentine’s Day without a date, Best Friends Animal Society shares a dozen reasons why your #RelationshipGoals should include the pet adoption option.
12 Reasons To Adopt A Pet for Valentines Day
1. Hanging with a pet will give pleasant new meaning to “Netflix and chill.”
2. Your pet’s lasting love will make you never fear being “ghosted” again.
3. Adopting a pet will help you overcome that fear of commitment.
4. You’ll always have someone there to kiss you good morning, even before you brush your teeth.
5. Walking a cat on a harness and leash is a guaranteed attention-getter.
6. Chances are your pet will love to spoon and snuggle as much as you do, if not more.
7. Your new canine companion will give you a valid reason to hang out and meet people at the dog park.
8. More than 63 percent of people consider pets to be members of the family (according to the AVMA). So no matter what the configuration of a family unit, pets are a perfect source of love and companionship.
9. If you’re not finding true love on Tinder, adopting a pet may be your answer.
10. A pet will help you get accustomed to 24/7 adoration and unconditional love.
11. An adopted pet can help you become less self-centered, as you learn to put another’s needs before your own.
12. If you’re looking for love, but are freaked out by forever, check with a local shelter or rescue to find out about fostering. Contrary to what you see online, there’s plenty of drama-free companions out there.
To make it even more attractive, Best Friends Animal Society and its official media sponsor, Hallmark Channel are offering pet adoption fees starting at $14 to help you find “The One.” The national event is taking place February 1-15 at Best Friends adoption centers in Utah and Los Angeles, and at an event in New York, as well as through participating No More Homeless Pets Network partners across the country.
“If you’re looking to bring home a new pet, few people will argue that adopted animals reward their people with a depth of love and loyalty that pets from other sources often don’t seem to rival,” said Gregory Castle, co-founder and chief executive officer for Best Friends Animal Society. “They seem to know they were given a second chance, and they spend their lives repaying their families.”
Take this fun quiz from Hallmark and Best Friends to see what your ideal match is.
