Loving dogs on Valentine's Day

LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - To celebrate Valentine's Day, one local group hopes to spread a little love to their furry friends. The adoption company called, "A Place for us Greyhounds" met Saturday for a meet and greet to answer questions about their favorite breed of dogs. The organization says they chose Valentine's Day because Greyhounds are loving pets, so why not adopt a sweetheart of a dog.

"We came out for one meet and greet, and Lola Grace was here, and she stole our hearts," said Greyhound owner Sherry Grusendorf. 

The group also chose Valentine's Day for their event because it's PetSmart's "Charities 2nd Chance for Love" adoption weekend. This organization is promoting adoptions of all breeds of dogs and cats through in store promotions all weekend.
