It is a tradition for many couples to give flowers on Valentine’s Day. But now there is a way to make romantic bouquets even better! She Loves Me flower shop in Washington DC did something special this year. If customers donated money to an animal shelter, their flowers would be delivered by an adorable rescue dog for Valentine’s Day.

In no time this event became a hit. The store raised over $ 1,000 for rescue dogs, and five special protection dogs had a fun day delivering flowers. It was so successful that it could become a recurring event. What is a vacation without rescue dogs?

Puppy love

Holley Simmons, the owner of She Loves Me, has started the “Puppy Love” campaign in honor of Valentine’s Day. Those who bought flowers for the vacation had the opportunity to donate $ 35 to an animal rescue service. If they did, a rescue dog would deliver their flowers.

Of course, each rescue dog was accompanied by a human who helped deliver the flowers safely. But customers were still allowed to play with the rescue dogs, and each puppy wore an adorable flower collar. All of the puppies looked stylish and happy for the event.

There were five participating dogs: a long-haired dachshund, a miniature doodle, a lab mix, and two chow chows. They are all adoptable dogs from We the Dogs DC and Lucky Dogs Animal Rescue. Those who bought flowers received a bouquet of roses, yarrow, scabiosa and carnations.

Flowers help dogs

In the end this campaign was a great success! Not only were the rescue pups thrilled to be admitted, but they also helped raise lots of money for more dogs in need. More than just $ 35 was donated as part of this campaign. And after just one hour of announcing the event, all 20 seats were occupied.

“Your delivery fee counts as a donation too, so it averages $ 50 per person going directly to the organizations,” said Simmons. “We raised $ 1,000 in a couple of hours, so I’m pretty excited about it.”

Simmons was so impressed with the support this action received. She helped donate lots of money to a good cause while raising awareness about rescue dogs.

She also hopes to continue this promotion in the future. Not only for Valentine’s Day, but maybe also for other holidays like Mother’s Day. So it looks like this is just the beginning of a beautiful tradition.
