Meet your newest furry friend

The Union staff

AnimalSave will take on the role of matchmaker this week, hoping to pair homeless dogs and cats with new owners in celebration of Valentine’s Day.

The “Meet Your Match” pet adoptions begin Saturday, as the Nevada County Animal Shelter, Tiny Paws Rescue and Chow Chow Rescue join AnimalSave from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at Kmart Plaza, 111 W. McKnight Way.

“Anyone who owns a pet knows how much critters can enrich your life,” Kira Swaim, AnimalSave Program Director, stated in a media release. “Valentine’s Day is a day we celebrate love and those we cherish. … It is a great time to adopt an animal into the home. You can open your heart and receive the unconditional love that animals offer – along with a wealth of other lessons they’ll teach over a lifetime.”

In addition to Saturday’s event, several businesses in Grass Valley and Nevada City will host a “Meet Your Match” adoption on Valentine’s Day.

From noon to 4 p.m. Tuesday, furry feline valentines will be available at Booktown Books & Tomes, Incredible Pets, Planet Pet and Scraps Dog Bakery in Grass Valley and at Harmony Books and Wisdom Café and Gallery in Nevada City.

For those who meet their match Tuesday, they’ll go home with not just a new friend, but also a gift from Confectionary Mine and a free pet grooming from Bubbles and Bows.

For more information, please contact Kira Swaim at AnimalSave via e-mail at kira@animalsave.org or by phone at 271-7071, ext. 203.
