Petco shows love for pets ahead of Valentine's Day

LAREDO, TX (KGNS) - Valentine’s Day is less than a week away, and a local pet store is showing some love for our pets right before the holiday.

Every month, Petco teams up with LAPS to put together pet adoption events to help find homes for animals without a home.

The Laredo Animal Protective Society has plenty of different pets that are looking for homes, whether you are a dog or cat lover.

Richard Barazza with LAPS says if you are looking for a new friend, it’s better to adopt than shop.

The adoption event will take place this Saturday at Petco North from 12 p.m. to 3 p.m.

The event is open to animal lovers of all kinds.
