Shelter Animals Love the Valentine Wish Giving Tree

Do you love animals, but unable to commit to having a pet, or another pet? Animal Services has opportunities for you show your fond affection for furry friends in a fun way!

Animal Services designed a beautiful Valentine Wish Tree brimming with valentine wishes for the shelter’s animals for pet toys, peanut butter lick mats, cat scratch pads, squeaky toys and more!  

Each unique valentine ornament features a picture of an animal cared for by Animal Services during the past year with a special valentine wish. 

Staff creatively put technology to work by including a scannable QR code on each valentine wish to help make wishes magically come true for the animals from the comfort of your home. 

Not sure how to use a QR code? Open the camera on your mobile device and hover over the digital square. After a second or two, an alert to open your internet browser will appear which will include the direct link to shop or donate, depending on the item scanned.

Click here to see valentine wishes with scannable QR codes.

Simply choose a gift item, scan the QR code and link directly to wish list items on Amazon, or the Arlington Online Store. The Valentine Wish Tree will be displayed in the shelter atrium at 1000 S.E. Green Oaks Boulevard through the end of February 2021.

Every donation, no matter the dollar amount, directly impacts animals in our care. 

If this happens to be the perfect time for you to introduce a furry friend into your life, visit our adoptable pets website, Facebook page, or better yet, come by the Animal Services Center in person to meet your awaiting valentine while there is a $50 valentine adoption fee special, and $25 to adopt a VIP pet. All adoptions include core vaccinations, spay/neuter surgery, FIV/FELV testing for cats, heartworm testing for dogs (if the dog or cat is over the age of six months), a microchip and more!  Valentine Wish Tree
