This Valentine’s Day, animal shelters across the country are inviting people to embrace the kind of love that doesn’t need flowers or chocolate. A number of rescue organizations are celebrating with discounts on the warm fuzzies you can’t find in a store: the unconditional love of a pet.

Looking for a furry sweetheart to call your own? Here are a few Southern shelters offering incentives to help their animals find their forever Valentines:
