ESCAMBIA COUNTY   --  If you're looking for love this coming Valentine's Day, we've found the perfect place,
If your idea of unconditional affection includes puppy tummies and kitten whiskers you're in luck, "Double Time".

Some pairs are apparent.
Mary Kate and Ashley -- clearly go together, other duos aren't as evident but all twosomes are on sale.  It's a two for the price of one special.

(("I would always have two, never just one."))
Monie Russo is the adoption counselor at the Pensacola Humane Society where this Friday and Saturday all approved sets are "adopt one, get one free".

The recently adopted duo of "Bert and Ernie" inspired the "My Furry Valentine" promotion.

Ernie is almost blind -- Bert acts as his eyes.
Russo says the seven year old Chihuahua brothers had to stay together she worried about their placement.

"I'll be darned on Saturday, this gentleman walked in with his dog and wife and they adopted Bert and Ernie. They'd been here almost 7 months."))
   
Osha is the smallest resident.  Goliath  by far the biggest.. The Mutt and Jeff combo adore each other.

Russo says dogs in particular are social creatures and having more than one often cuts down on boredom and bad behavior.
(("They entertain each other."))
   
If you're looking for a double helping of Oreo kitties -- Kyley and Noelle are a matched set.

But the discounted duos can be any combo -- dog and dog, cat and cat, and when they can coexist, one of each.

Surprise Valentine adoptions are taboo.
There's a mandatory "Meet and Greet" to test temperament and chemistry.

(("We recommend everyone in the household plus pets come to make sure everybody gets along and loves each other."))

There is another special pet adoption day on Thursday at the Escambia County Animal Shelter.

It's from 10 am  until 4 in the afternoon.

The first one hundred people to adopt an animal will get a special goodie bag.
