Bow to Wow: Heartwarming pets to bring home on V-Day


Four dogs and a cat, all with Valentine's-themed names, get adorable new looks as they wait for their forever homes. TODAY animal advocate Jill Rappaport reports.

Just in time for Valentine's Day, we're featuring the sweetest group of pets up for adoption on this segment of Bow to Wow. 

At Animal Care and Control in NYC we found "Smooch," an adorable Chihuahua-mix puppy that you will not be able to stop kissing. Another precious pup up for adoption is "Heart," a Norfolk terrier mix that will melt your heart as he melts in your lap.

Then say hello to another dashing lad: "Valentino!" This affectionate Bichon Frise is a very special boy whose eyes will slay you.

We also have 1 1/2-year-old "Sweetpea," a delightful Cavalier-Spaniel mix who is a true "fur angel." And finally, a little "Meow to Wow" with "Cupid," the cutest black-and-white domestic short hair kitten.

Consider adopting one of these five fabulous animals waiting for a loving home on Valentine's Day. It's the perfect time to share the love!
