Valentine’s Day is all about making those dearest to us feel adored, and we’ve got some stellar ideas for helping animals and making the object of your affection feel loved at the same time. Whether you want to win someone’s heart with a vegan gift or celebrate by showing some love to animals through thoughtful actions, we’ve got you covered.
Being humane and healthy is very attractive, so this Valentine’s Day, ditch meat like it’s a bad date. Physicians agree that consuming meat and dairy clogs the arteries that go to all the vital organs, not just the heart, and that indulging in healthy vegan fare will give you the energy, vitality, and stamina that you need to add some extra va-va-voom in the bedroom.
One Word: Chocolate
What would Valentine’s Day be without candy? For scrumptious treats made without a drop of animal suffering, check out PETA’s Treat Shop. To sweeten the deal, all the proceeds from sales go directly toward supporting our vital work for animals.
Dine-In Date Night
Nothing says, “There’s no one else that I’d rather be in lockdown with,” like making your valentine a romantic dinner. We highly recommend preparing one of these special Valentine’s Day dishes. Earn extra brownie points by letting your hot dish drink wine and chill while you’re in the kitchen unleashing your cooking skills. Enhance the romance by giving those pj’s you wear every day the night off. Dress to impress, starting with enticing and eco-friendly hemp undergarments from WAMA Underwear.
Remember Your Furry Valentine
Animal companions are the perfect valentines. Not only do they give us unconditional love, they also make sure that we’re showered with kisses and cuddles on Valentine’s Day. Show them some extra affection this year and treat them to new toys. Don’t forget about animals who don’t have someone to love them—PETA’s “Buy One, Give One” Dog Toy will help you bring a little joy to a lonely chained or penned dog.
Celebrate Palentine’s Day
No valentine? No problem! Make animals your palentine by joining PETA’s Action Team. If you’re reading this, we already know you have a big heart. Our Action Team will help you speak out for animals and get involved in our campaigns. With your support, we can win even more victories for animals.
Send a Virtual Valentine
Can’t be with someone you love in person this year? Send them a compassionate gift that gives twice. PETA Presents are virtual gifts that power our campaigns. These beautiful and heartfelt e-cards support our life-changing work for animals. The special Valentine’s Day line includes the “You’re the ‘Beary’ Best” card, which helps us end the abuse of bears and other animals used for entertainment, and the “Together FURever” card, which supports our campaigns against the cruel fur industry.
Happy Valentine’s Day, all you cruelty-free cupids! Have fun and keep the love going by extending your kindness and compassion to all animals—every day of the year.
