The Erie Humane Society is kicking off Valentine’s Day a little early.
This morning, Mercyhurst University students brought President Michael Victor a Critter Gram.
The Valentine’s Day surprise is a visit from a dog, as well as, fresh flowers and a card. It allows shelter dogs to get out for the day and bring a smile to everyone’s face.
The fundraiser has been going strong since 2016.
“I think for dog lovers it’s a lot of fun to get a valentine from a shelter dog,” said Chad Redmond, Volunteer, Humane Society.
This year has set a new record for the Humane Society with 51 Critter Grams being delivered over today and tomorrow.
