A large pet adoption event will take place throughout Cincinnati and Northern Kentucky Saturday, as local animal shelters and rescue groups hope to break adoption records for homeless pets.
My Furry Valentine, which will take place from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., will have 1,826 adoptable animals (and counting) at nearly 40 locations in Greater Cincinnati. The main adoption event will take place at the flexi distribution center, 8494 Firebird Drive, in West Chester Township.
At flexi, which is off Union Centre Blvd., there will be hundreds of healthy adoptable pets including dogs, cats, rabbits and guinea pigs.
Every animal adopted during the event will receive a free goody bag filled with a flexi leash, toys and treats (valued at more than $80).

Mayor Mark Mallory has already officially proclaimed Feb. 11 “Pet Adoption Day in the City of Cincinnati.”
“My Furry Valentine will feature a tremendous amount of activity including lovable adoptable pets, music, family entertainment, prizes and education about pet care and resources explaining the importance of adopting from shelters and rescue groups,” said Carolyn Evans, event organizer.
“By hosting this event, we’re making it easy, fun and convenient for people to meet-and-greet adoptable pets who need and deserve loving homes.”
