FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE / PRURGENT
Johnstown, NY - Let’s be honest: While your significant other may think Saint Valentine’s Day is all about them, you know that Fido or Whiskers is your real Valentine. We’re pretty darn sure that the anonymous poet who wrote, “A hundred hearts would be too few to carry all my love for you,” was referring to their four-legged sweetheart.
Every day is Valentine’s Day when you look into your pet’s soulful doe-eyes. But if you’ve spent the past year enjoying an unexpected and unprecedented amount of time at home snuggled up to your darling pet, it only makes sense to shower them with extra love in all its forms - namely with gifts. Pets love gifts.

A word to the enthusiastic gifters out there: Shipping delays are to be expected, so shop early as you wouldn’t want to let your special Valentine down with a late gift. Yes, we understand that the average pet may not recognize that Saint Valentine’s Day is February 14th and is a significant cultural, religious, and commercial celebration of love in many regions of the world. Do our furry friends know when it’s their Birthday or Christmas/Hanukkah/Kwanzaa either? No. Will your best pet friend be uber-thrilled to get even more attention from you followed by a heart-shaped super delicious treat anyway? Heckin’ yeah!
