Prepare To Fall In Love With These Shelter Pets Who Hope That One Picture Saves A Life!

No person or animal should have to spend Valentine’s Day alone. Unfortunately, over 7 million cats and dogs in the United States are surrendered to shelters every year, and a large number of those animals will never make it out alive. The One Picture Saves a Life program is committed to making that number zero by helping shelter staff increase animals’ chances for adoption through great photography. Across the country, talented photographers are teaming up with One Picture Saves a Life to give shelter animals a better chance at finding a forever home. Check out these adorable shelter pets all decked out in their Valentine’s Day best. Could you be their forever valentine? Shelter animals are like humans on Valentine’s Day – they just want to be loved!
