Not Feeling the Love This Valentine’s Day? 14 Reasons "The One" for You May Have 4 Legs

“The One” Promotion Offers Reduced-Fee Pet Adoptions Feb 13-16 from Flagler Humane Society and Best Friends Animal Society®

Palm Coast, FL, February 07, 2015 --( Flowers. Candy. Declarations of love. For those happily coupled, Valentine’s Day can be one of the best times of the year. For some of the 102 million singles in America, according to, the holiday can be awful.

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 and Flagler Humane Society are offering $10 adoptions during “The One” promotion that applies to specially marked animals throughout the shelter. "We are specifically targeting animals that have been at the shelter over two months," said Amy Carotenuto, Flagler Humane Society Executive Director. "These are the animals that need homes the most and we want to make it easier for them to be adopted."
