Love is in the Air at Woods 

In celebration of Valentine’s Day, Woods Humane Society has a special that could help readers find true love. 

The “Love is in the Air” adoption event runs through February 14. The promotion reduces standard adoption fees to $14 for adult pets (5 months or older), down from the typical range of $65 for senior cats to $150 for adult dogs.

“At a time when our kennels and those of our shelter partners are absolutely brimming with adoptable animals eager to give their hearts to a family, Valentine’s Day seems like a great reason to remind our community of the incredible love and companionship they can find by adopting a shelter pet,” said Woods CEO Neil Trent.

In creating the artwork for the adoption special, Woods asked the community for submissions of photos demonstrating their love for their pets and received more than 200 submissions on Facebook in one weekend.

The selected photo (above) shows recently adopted Woods dog Indi with owner Robyn Friedman O’Leary, a three-time adopter, long-time foster volunteer, and supporter of Woods. “In the short time Indi has joined our family, she has become a happy, confident dog who loves to meet new people and other dogs,” said O’Leary. “She has learned so many manners and, most of all, brings us love and joy every day. She is simply fabulous and does something every day that makes us all laugh.”

All animals available for adoption have been spayed/neutered, vaccinated, microchipped, licensed, and treated for parasites. Adoptions also include a voluntary 30 days of pet insurance and a free wellness exam at a local vet clinic.

Woods Humane Society is located at 875 Oklahoma Ave., San Luis Obispo, and at 2300 Ramona Rd., Atascadero, CA 93422, and is open to the public daily from 12-5 p.m., with adoption hours from 12-4 p.m. For more information about Woods, visit www.WoodsHumane.org or call (805) 543-9316.
