Ok, remember that best animal charities list we gave you at Christmas? Well, here’s part 2 to help with your Valentine gifting! 🙂 Maybe one thought for your sweetheart that’s “hard to buy for” is to donate on their behalf to an animal charity. AND, even if you did use our list from the holidays, here are even more places you can donate!
