United Animal Friends (UAF) is offering two ways for animal lovers to express their affection for companion pets during the Valentine weekend.

UAF hopes to fill the Pet Food Bank trailer Saturday, Feb. 12, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the PetSmart parking lot on Highway 69, Prescott. Volunteers will be on hand to collect dog, puppy, cat, and kitten food during those hours for needy pet families in the area.

Animal lovers can also pick up something sweet for their two-legged sweethearts at a special Valentine bake sale.

As usual, UAF will hold dog and puppy adoptions during its regular Saturday hours of 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at PetSmart.

The next day - Sunday, Feb. 13 - is the grand opening of Kitty City at Petco in Prescott, where UAF will host a "My Furry Valentine" adoption event and bake sale from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m.

Cat lovers are invited to visit the beautiful new adoption center at Petco and possibly meet their special sweethearts during the grand opening. Reduced adoption fees during the one-day event are $35 for cats and $50 for kittens.

Food for UAF's pet food bank will also be collected during the grand opening.

UAF will hold its weekly Sunday cat and kitten adoptions from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. in the newly created Kitty City adoption room. The new space, designed and decorated by UAF volunteers, is provided by Petco.

P.A.A.L.S. has also been invited to use the room during its adoption times - Fridays from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. and Saturdays from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

All of UAF's adoptable cats and dogs can be seen online at www.UnitedAnimalFriends.org. For more information, call UAF at 928-778-2924.
