Show your Love for Animals on Valentine’s Day
Five animal-friendly tips to make your heart beat faster this Valentine's Day
1. Choose sweet treats that are animal-friendly
Pralines, chocolate and sweets are proven classics on Valentine's Day. All the better if it didn't include hidden animal suffering. Pay attention to sweets containing palm oil, as the production is not only ecologically very questionable but also damages the habitat of many endangered rainforest creatures, such as orangutans. Also, many baked goods unfortunately still have cage eggs as ingredients, sadly rarely labelled. Animal-friendly alternatives make hearts beat faster!

You have to be very careful with chocolate and flowers if cats, dogs and free-ranging rodents live in the same household. Romantic gifts are often poisonous for four-legged friends – especially chocolate!
2. The way to the heart is through the stomach
How about a romantic homemade dinner for Valentine's Day? Do not panic! Cooking animal-friendly and plant-based meals can be very simple.

3. Animal welfare is sexy
Many people do not know that even condoms are not purely vegetarian. They often contain the animal protein casein from cows. Surprise your loved one this Valentine's Day with vegan condoms, because considering animal welfare is really sexy! And keeping this in mind: the whip does not have to be made of leather, there are already very good imitation leather and feathers!
4. Pamper your loved one with animal-friendly gifts
Regardless of whether it is pampering time with vegan cosmetics, valuable time together or donating towards animal welfare, there are many romantic options for animal-friendly gifts. How about, for example, a nice dinner in a chic, vegan restaurant nearby?
FOUR PAWS wishes all animal lovers a wonderful Valentine's Day!
