For hundreds of Greater Cincinnati families and individuals each year, Valentine’s Day has come to be extra special as a holiday when they adopted a dog, puppy, cat or other small animal at My Furry Valentine. The event has grown to be the largest mega dog and cat adoption event in the region, and attracts over 1400 visitors to the Sharonville Convention Center. It has more than 700 animals (dogs, cats, birds and some other species) from dozens of rescues. If you are looking to add a non-human friend to your household, you just may find your new companion there!
Going to a pet adoption event like My Furry Valentine, it is so easy to fall in love at first sight. Those dogs and puppies (and kittens and other animals for that matter) have a way of getting into your heart, and before you know it, you are walking off with a new friend…with whom, if all goes well, you will be sharing a home for many years to come.
My Furry Valentine, the region’s largest annual animal adoption event, is coming up this Saturday & Sunday, February 13 & 14, 2016, from 11am – 5pm, at the Sharonville Convention Center, 11355 Chester Road, Cincinnati, OH 45246.
All too often puppies and dogs find their ways into shelters, for many reasons, often for no fault of their own. They are the victims of circumstances beyond their control, like an illness or death in the family, divorce, growing family, family relocation, or improper training and preparation from owners.
