Hearts and paws were the theme at the Chino Valley Animal Shelter's Valentines Adoption Day at Olsen's Grain on Saturday.
"So far it's been a really great day," said CVAS Adoption Specialist Grace Rentschler. "We've had two adoptions so far and sold a lot of these goodies to raise money for the shelter."
The goodies - homemade cookies and cakes that were donated by shelter volunteers and supporters - were going fast, along with shelter T-shirts and raffle tickets for various gift baskets, also supplied by volunteers and supporters.
Not intimidated by the snow, Brad Ginn, who has been volunteering at the shelter for the past month, enthusiastically greeted Olsen's customers along with Bingo, a 1-year-old boxer mix who is anxious to find a family.
"He's got a lot of energy, but he's really alert and is showing some good training," said Ginn.
Rentschler reminds the public that the shelter has many dogs in need of a good home, but for those families that aren't able to adopt, the CVAS also needs donations of supplies and money.
"We can always use blankets, toys, and dog food," said Rentschler. "And we always need laundry and dish soap, and of course, cash."
