Casie Carbone, the social media manager and “overall organizer master” at the shelter knew she wanted to do something clever for the dogs at the shelter this Valentine’s Day. The shelter is filled with beautiful, loveable dogs, and she wants people to know it.

“We are trying to find a playful way to highlight our dogs but also (highlight) our longer-stay dogs and try to describe who would be the best type of adopter,” she said.

Unfortunately, adoptions have been slow lately, with only one dog finding a home last week and five more dogs coming in.

The dogs at Lighthouse Animal Shelter have all come from Southern high-volume kill shelters.

“Most were pulled within hours of being euthanized for no other reason than the shelter needed space,” she said.

These dogs don’t deserve that. These dogs deserve love.

This Valentine’s Day, Carbone and the team at Lighthouse hope to unite their loveable dogs with the perfect families.
