Humans are not the only ones looking for love this February.
The Kurth Memorial Animal Shelter has plenty of dogs and cats that want the love of a forever home this month. The shelter is trying to help that dream become a reality by offering discounted adoptions until Valentines Day. According to Shelter Director Aaron Ramsey, adoptions normally cost $60 but until the day of love, adoptions will be $14.
"The adoption cost covers the adoption, the spay and neuter procedure, and the first round of vaccines," Ramsey said. "We always ask people that before you buy from a breeder to come check the shelter out because there is great, great animals that need a home."
The event is part of a national campaign by the Best Friends Network. The shelter is located on Hill Street in Lufkin and is open 10 a.m. to 4:45 pm , Monday through Saturday.
