14 Reasons “The One” For You May Have 4 Legs

With millions of people looking for love online, Best Friends Animal Society asks the question: Why limit the search to the two-legged?

The One Kitten

“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 is offering $10 adoptions during “The One” promotion taking place February 13-16 at its adoption centers in Utah, New York, or Los Angeles, as well as through participating No More Homeless Pets Network partners across the country. More information about the promotion can be found by visiting http://bestfriends.org/TheOne/.

The One Puppy

Still not sure about a four-legged Valentine? Best Friends Animal Society offer 14 compelling reasons why a pet might just be “The One” for you:

1. Pets won’t play hard to get.
2. Pets won’t break up with you on Twitter.
3. Pets won’t mock you for eating ice cream out of the carton.
4. Pets will never take the last beer.
5. Pets don’t care what kind of car you drive.
6. Pets love binge watching “Orange is the New Black” as much as you do.
7. Pets have no desire to trade you in for a newer model.
8. Pets couldn’t care less about your hair or what you wear.
9. Pets love it when you leave your clothes on the floor (instant nap spot!).
10. Pets won’t look at their smartphone when you are trying to have a conversation.
11. Pets are cheap dates – no fancy dinners or expensive jewelry required.
12. Pets drooling and snoring are pretty cute. Humans, not so much.
13. Pets will snuggle whenever you want.
14. Pets think every day is Valentine’s Day – just one more chance to show you unconditional love!

“We encourage anybody looking for love to go to one of our adoption centers or your local shelter or rescue to find that perfect match,” Castle said. “Big and small, young and old, there’s a wonderful adoptable pet waiting to meet you and make this your most special Valentine’s Day ever.”

    Why most people want love from a two legged animal is that they don’t know the difference between love and lust hence the two legs.

    To them love is all about them and themselves only. Totally deluded to reaching out to fortune tellers or God who ever he is be it Buddha, Allah or the Litter Day Sins and etc. Ring-ring, “Is ‘dat you God”? “Hello sailor.

    All the usual hocus pocus stuff till one Nun said, forget the Hocus, just Poke Us will ya!.

    Love is giving without wanting or expecting anything in return. Love is without finding fault or having to complain.

    When my dog wants to go out walkies more than fives a day. I give in to her what ever the weather. You see, it keeps me healthy.

    Yes, walking is fat free for both Willow and I as we are both fat free with unlimited loyalty to one another.

    It’s called The Commitment. No not the Ten Commandments idiot, The commitment a word very rarely understood till death us do fart.

    Dog Bless and errrrrrr— Meow. Double Meow, Here pussy pussy. Sorry mate not the Sheilas, a real pussie-purrrrrrrrrrr.

    From Australia where else..
