These Valentine's Dating Profiles of Pets Looking for a Home Will Melt Your Heart

Pet supplies retailer Chewy is teaming up with a Florida rescue shelter this Valentine's Day to find some four-legged friends their forever home.

The pets have been given their very own dating profiles, looking for love of a kind different than that found on Tinder or Hinge.

Just like with real dating though, the pets are putting their best paw forward with adorable profiles listing their vital qualities and dashing photos to match. No catfishes here, much to the disappointment of the feline friends.

According to their adorable profiles, Luxor is 16 (and thriving) but "here for the head and ear rubs." While 2-year-old June is great with small kids and loves a good mani-pedi.

Lola ranks "zoomies and chill" as her perfect day and Toby, 5, is both an enthusiastic tennis ball fetcher and a serious cuddler.

Unlike real dating profiles however, they do admit their flaws: Lorie the cat loves to lurk and observe, she warns.

It certainly isn't the first time four-legged friends have given online dating a shot. In 2021, a "Tinder for dogs" called Pawmates hit over 10,000 downloads after being created by a Toronto dog owner.

The app allows owners to match their dogs with others in the local area willing to meet up for playdates. Just like human Tinder, owners can swipe left or right on dogs within a specific radius, before matching and starting a conversation.

These heartwarming profiles were released ahead of a TikTok Live event hosted by Chewy and the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League based in West Palm Beach, Florida.

"Some Buddy To Love" is set to feature adorable animal show-and-tells with pets who are yet to find their companions, puppy and kitten livestreams and even a festive kissing booth. The Live event will be hosted on the official @Chewy TikTok account at 4 p.m. EST and is expected to run through 7 p.m.

If viewers of the TikTok Live are interested in welcoming any animals they see on screen, they can visit the Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League page on Chewy's Adoptable Pet service to take the next steps.

Although all the dogs and cats being shown during "Some Buddy To Love" live in Florida, national viewers can still visit Chewy's Adoptable Pet service which has thousands of pets looking for their new loving owners.

In the U.S. it's estimated that around 6.3 million companion animals enter shelters each year, making missions like this to provide them with loving homes vital. Mita Malhotra, vice president of Chewy Health and Shelters, told Newsweek: "We are always looking for innovative ways to support our rescue partners and we are excited to spotlight some amazing lovable animals who are searching for their forever homes.

"Through this Valentine's Day event, we're excited to lean into a fun cultural moment, make new connections with our TikTok friends and lend a hand to our rescue partner, Peggy Adams Animal Rescue League. Our goal is to spread the love to pet enthusiasts everywhere, and hopefully we can inspire love-seeking viewers to adopt a furry Valentine."
