PHOENIX (3TV/CBS 5) -

If Valentine's Day has you feeling that you need a companion, the Maricopa County Animal Care and Control shelter is offering quite the deal so you can have a furry friend.

The organization is waiving adoption fees on all dogs and cats from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. on Singles Awareness Day, which is Feb. 15, the day after Valentine's Day.

There are about 600 animals at the shelters.

Both shelter locations are participating in the event. Again, the deal is only good for those two hours on Wednesday.

"Hey, if you didn't meet the love of your life on Valentines Day, come in on Singles Awareness Day and meet the love of your life at a shelter. And that is the point of the special, to encourage people to come in because the advantages of having a pet over a boyfriend or a girlfriend are numerous," said Melissa Gable with Maricopa County Animal Care and Control.

If you're still on the fence about getting a pet, just remember that they are amazing at keeping secrets, are great listeners and will give you unconditional love.

The MCACC West shelter is at 2500 S. 27th Ave. in Phoenix and MCACC East is at 2630 W. Rio Salado Pkwy in Mesa.
