What's the best way to tell someone you love them? With puppy kisses, of course!

Last Hope Animal Rescue in Cedar Rapids will once again be selling Pup-a-Grams for Valentine's Day this year. An official post on their Facebook page reads:

"We aren't going to let COVID stop our FAVORITE fundraiser... it's Pup-a-Gram time!! Things will look a little different this year, but we're still excited to share some love with our adoptable animals and raise funds for a good cause!"

Because Pup-a-Grams have been so popular in the past, in-person deliveries will be available for two days this year on Friday, February 12th and Saturday, February 13th. You can schedule a delivery between 9 a.m. and noon, noon and 4 p.m., or 4 p.m. 6 .p.m. either day, but the delivery location must be here in the Corridor. They cost $30 and include a small floral arrangement courtesy of Anamosa Floral.

Because of COVID-19, all the volunteers will follow social distancing guidelines this year, but you will be able to pet the pups since they'll be on leashes! Volunteers will also be health-screened and masked and will sanitize between visits. Deliveries can be made to both businesses and residences, but volunteers will not be going inside unless the business has a lobby or entryway. Visits to residences will take place on the porch.

If you'd rather take part in an online version of the fundraiser this year, you can choose a virtual Valentine for a $10 donation fee and Last Hope will send a custom message and a photo to your valentine via email.
