If you're looking for something different than the traditional bouquet of roses or box of chocolates this Valentine's Day a local animal rescue organization has the perfect way for you to mix things up – with a puppy!

For a $100 donation to Gateway Pet Guardians, they'll deliver a cuddly puppy and a rose to your loved one on Valentine's Day. Each puppy stays at the destination about 10-15 minutes, then they'll be off to make someone else's day. Just fill out the form here and Gateway Pet Guardians take care of the rest.

"This is one of our favorite fundraisers of the year," says Executive Director Jamie Case says. "Offices will go in together & order a puppy gram just to have a puppy come to their office to play."

Their community outreach efforts are what sets them apart from other organizations. Gateway Pet Guardians strives to keep pets with the people who love them. They go beyond rescue. #beyondrescue
