Smooch a Pooch at County Animal Services this Valentine’s Day

Love is in the air at County Animal Services. Adopt any dog through Valentine’s Day and get half off the adoption fees. Then pucker up for the Valentine’s Day kissing booth!

A student from Pacific Ridge High School created three “Kissing Booth” photo frames for people and their newly adopted pets. The frames were made for each of the County’s three animal care facilities and quickly put to use at the Carlsbad location when a dog was adopted later that day.

Your sweetheart of a pooch could be waiting for you, too, at a County shelter near you. And what better way to show your love, than a visit to the kissing booth?

All of you cat and rabbit lovers, don’t despair. Those cuddly animals are also available at half price through Valentine’s Day. Be nice to Fido and see if you can’t sneak a kiss inside the booth with your new sweetheart too!

If you do find yourself smitten and snap a photo, share it on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram with #SmoochYourPoochSD. We just might share it!
