With millions of people looking for love online, Best Friends Animal Society asks the question: Why limit the search to the two-legged?

"Ask just about any pet owner and they'll tell you, dogs and cats provide them with a lot of joy, comfort and companionship," said Gregory Castle, chief executive officer of Best Friends Animal Society. "And with so many dogs and cats in shelters or rescues waiting to be your one and only, Valentine's Day is the perfect time of year to adopt a pet."

To further promote prospective people and pet matches, Best Friends Animal Society is offering $10 adoptions during "The One" promotion taking place February 13-16 at its adoption centers in Utah, New York, or Los Angeles, as well as through participating No More Homeless Pets Network partners across the country.
