ANCHORAGE, Alaska -- The Anchorage Animal Care and Control Center made some happy couples on Valentine's Day at a pet adoption fair. There were lots of fun things to do like the dog kissing booth, a Valentine-making station, dog fortune-telling and door prizes.
The center says it was a successful day, and many pets were adopted.
"We do have an excess of animals in the community, but there are a lot of really great animals here," said volunteer Mary O'Connor. "So it's good that people can come in and see them without being afraid to come in, that it's going to be a sad and depressing place."
The center's best advice on passionate pets, however, is to get them spayed and neutered.
