Meet Your Match pet adoption: AnimalSave has come up with a very cute idea to match people and pets in time for Valentine’s Day. (Note to Mr. Readers’ Corner – I still want a dog!) Anyway, the first event is Saturday at Kmart, and AnimalSave, along with other animal organizations including Nevada County Animal Shelter, Tiny Paws Rescue and Chow Chow Rescue, will hold the first “Meet Your Match” pet adoption. Animal matchmakers will be on hand at Kmart Plaza at 111 W. McKnight Way from 11a.m. Ð 2 p.m. to pair loving families with their true pet companion. Then, on Valentine’s Day, (Note to Mr. Readers’ Corner, next Tuesday) several businesses in Grass Valley and Nevada City will host their own “Meet Your Match” pet adoption. From noon to 4 p.m. on Feb. 14, pet lovers can find furry feline valentines to adopt 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. (Note: Another cat would be nice, too!) All fuzzy dog and cat valentines adopted during AnimalSave’s “Meet Your Match” pet adoptions will go home with their new family as well as an AnimalSave gift all their own. The gift consists of an array of Valentine’s goodies including something sweet for the whole family from Confectionary Mine and free pet grooming from Bubbles and Bows. For more information, call Kira Swaim at AnimalSave at (530) 271-7071×203 or e-mail her at
