7 photos of pets celebrating Valentine’s Day
The Sanctuary is full of love every day of the year, but on Valentine’s Day, there’s a little extra magic in the air. While it’s best known as a romantic holiday, Valentine’s Day isn’t just for couples. It’s also a great day to show a best friend how much you care. These animals are showing us just how much fun life can be when you add one plus one and become a dynamic duo.
Horses have a ball
“This is why young horses need other young horses,” says Horse Haven trainer Ann Hepworth. Dusty and Prince are like giant toddlers at a never-ending birthday party. Thank goodness they have each other, and their jolly ball.
Cockatoos’ new shoes
Shopping with a friend is always more fun, and these two cockatoos are having a blast trying on their new shoes. The question is: Which tastes better, purple or blue?
These pelicans buddied up for a short time during their rehabilitation at Wild Friends. The large aviary gave them a chance to test their wings and get ready for release back into the wild. The guy in front shows his buddy how it’s done.
Spatz and Maisie know how to keep warm during a long, cold winter in southern Utah. Both of these kitties used to be a bit shy around other cats when they first arrived at the Sanctuary, but it’s obvious from their cat tree snuggle sessions that they’ve won each other’s hearts — and ours.
Dive on in
This ball pit pool is big enough for two. When it is too cold for the pools to be filled with water in Dogtown, the ball pit pool is the next best thing. Stax shows her best friend Fenway just how fun it is to dive on in and romp around.
The “adopt me” twins
Siblings Abu and Raja really looked like twins, especially when they assumed the most adorable yin-and-yang position in their matching “adopt me” vests. Did the pose pay off? You bet it did. Abu and Raja have both been adopted and are in happy new homes.
Two pigs in a pod
What’s better than adopting one guinea pig? Adopting two guinea pigs. Brandy and Ivy recently went to a great new home. Now, they’ll get to spend the rest of their lives as two peas (or pigs) in a pod.
