I found out about this cool project through a local pet photographer, and decided to whip up a few Valentines really quickly. They are sending Valentines, along with information and coupons for dog food & treats, to homes with chained or penned dogs, in the hopes of educating people about more humane ways to care for their pets.  I altered some Valentines from the $1 bins at Michaels. I put a little chain across the two hearts and wrote "unchain my heart" and added pictures cut out from Bark magazine, with the caption "dogs love unconditionally". Inside is another pic and the caption "I <3 you. Please <3 me"
I hope they will help!

Thanks, Kitty! I hope it will help some dog owners to find a better way. Reading their website it sounds like they have gotten some positive responses from people asking for help in caring for their pets. If even a few people listen it will be a great result.
