Posted: Updated:

TUCSON, Ariz. -- A local shelter is helping you find a companion this Valentine's day.  The Pima Animal Care Center is offering holiday gift certificates for a discounted rate.

You pay $50 and your loved one can purchase any animal at the shelter.  The certificate never expires, so the recipient can adopt a dog or cat when the time is right for them.

"Just getting the word out there that there are a lot of adoptable animals here that just need a loving home and hopefully someone will come out here and find their forever friend," said Field Supervisor for the Pima Animal Care Center, Jeff Carver.

The Pima Animal Care Center is open Monday from noon to 7 P.M.
