When is this day celebrated? February 1
What is this day? Lonely Hearts are animals that have been in shelters for a significant period of time. These animals are often overlooked for various reasons including disabilities, health, or the color of their coat. Some may require extra care but the bond they create with their forever home can be incredibly strong.
Who created this day? This day was founded by Companion Animal Alliance in 2020.
