Archived: Dog Speed Dating

for Valentine's Day

A new doggy speed dating service has been set up to help Aucklanders find love this Valentine’s Day.

Dozens of Auckland Council Animal Shelter dogs will be looking for love at Victoria Park on Friday 12 February, from 11am to 2pm.

“Some will be looking for lasting relationships, but some are just happy for a casual fling on the day. Dogs are like that, they give their affection freely,” says Auckland Council’s Community Development and Safety Committee Chair, and registered responsible dog owner, Councillor Cathy Casey.

“Our shelters rescue dogs of all breeds, shapes, sizes and ages, so Aucklanders can come down and check them out before making any kind of commitment,” she says.

Dogs will be available for walks, pats and chin scratches, and there will be a “Love Booth” where people can have polaroids taken of themselves with some of the doggy stars.

The dogs have posted profiles of themselves, their interests and preferences for a human life partner.
