‘Will you be mine?’ Social media got hit by cupid spreading all kinds of love this Valentine’s Day

Who wouldn't love to see such adorable photos of animals in honor of Valentine's Day?

NORTH CAROLINA, USA — With love in the air and Valentine's Day being such a momentous occasion, who wouldn't love to see such cute photos of animals in honor of the holiday?

Here are 9 adorable photos from different organizations in the triad.

1. Burlington Animal Services posted these precious photos of 'Split' with lyrics from At Last by Etta James. The group shared multiple photos of the dog smiling from ear-to-ear.

2. Grandfather Mountain posted this family of otters. "The snuggle is real. Still looking for the perfect Valentine's gift for your significant otter?," the group wrote. "Give the gift of Grandfather Mountain with a Bridge Club season pass!"

Winter on Grandfather Mountain is often described as the "secret sea... son." During the colder months, the park becomes a veritable winter wonderland, taking on a serene, quiet atmosphere - as if visitors have the entire mountain to themselves.

3. Burlington Animal Services also shared a post starring 2-year-old Mitch in honor of Valentine's Day. "Roses are red. Snow is white. If you would adopt me, It would be dy-no-mite!" they wrote. "When he is not writing poetry, he is wishing to be adopted."

Roses are red. Snow is white. If you would adopt me, It would be dy-no-mite! Love, Mitch (Mitch is a 2 year old handsome guy. When he is not writing poetry, he is wishing to be adopted.)

4. "Thank you to the Chatham Charter Knights for sending candy and handmade Valentine’s cards to our staff. It was such a sweet surprise and made us feel extra special and loved—you know just how to make us smile! Happy Valentine’s Day to you, too!," Chatham County Sheriff's Office wrote.

We hope to see you for our next Chatham County Rabies Clinic! Preven... tion is key to helping our pets live happy, healthy lives, and vaccines are only $5 per pet... So what are you waiting for?! Help us keep our beloved animals and community safe by doing your part to prevent disease.

5. Fort Bragg remind people to be safe and to look out for Valentine's Day scams. "LOOKING FOR A VALENTINES DATE? Please consider one of these three. After considering them, swipe left. The two Soldiers on the outside, Eli and Donny, are two of the most impersonated profiles that we see. Mike is the better choice, but he is still a little stiff until you get to know him. 

The group gave a few rules for meeting an "alleged soldier" online and said the most important rule is to never send anyone money because it is more than likely a scam.

"Before you friend any Soldier you don't personally know on social media, please read about online romance scams,"  Fort Bragg said.

Happy Valentine's Day!
