Valentine’s Day Puppy-Grams return for 2020 in Fayetteville

Puppy-Grams will return for another Valentine’s Day season in Fayetteville this year.

For a suggested donation of at least $30, the Fayetteville Animal Shelter will make sure your valentine receives a 10-minute visit from a lovable shelter dog.

The program first began in 2014, but the shelter took a break in 2019.

Those receiving a Puppy-Gram will also be presented with one long-stemmed rose and a card acknowledging that a donation has been made to the shelter in their honor.

“We are so excited to offer an opportunity for people to help the shelter while also providing a unique way to surprise a loved one on Valentine’s Day,” said Justine Lentz, shelter superintendent. “Also, don’t hesitate to treat yourself or your best friend to a puppy-gram! It is such a fun and special gift.”

All of the funds raised will go into the shelter’s donation account to be used as needed throughout the year and all donations are tax deductible.

Puppy-Gram visits are available from 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 13 and Friday, Feb. 14.

The service is available for Fayetteville addresses only, and shelter officials are asking applicants to please make sure it is permissible for your valentine to receive their Puppy-Gram at the desired location.

To sign up, visit the shelter at 1640 S. Armstrong Ave., or call 479-444-3456.
