For Valentine’s Day, you can get a gorgeous and delicious milkshake for a good puppy cause.

Do you have Valentine’s Day plans?
There’s probably a think-piece or two out there talking about how people would rather spend time with their dogs than other people. With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, those of us who one, don’t have a significant other, two, are away from our significant other, or three, are smart enough to be away from the crowded restaurants and date scenes, those think-pieces ring true. I would much rather spend time at home petting and snuggling with my dog (if I had one) than mess with the anxiety that comes with an awkward V-Day date, and trudging through the snow we have up north this time of year. What would make me venture out? A perfect insta-moment for a dog-related good cause.

If you live near a Shake Shack in New York City, Los Angeles, and Atlanta, then there is a chance that during Valentine’s Day week, you can have your very own Love Shack.

Inspired and created by The B-52s, who are the artists behind the hit 80’s song of the same name, it’s a “strawberry blonde” milkshake with whip cream AND pink glittery sparkles!
What’s so good about it?

Besides probably tasting delicious (my Canadian-Shake-Shack-deprived mouth is watering), it’ll look picture perfect on your Instagram and probably get many likes. You’d get extra points and likes if you get your dog in the shot too!

To add to this amazing, gorgeous, and sweet drink, for every Love Shack Shake sold, $2 will be going towards the Canine Companions for Independence. This non-profit organization provides people in need with assistant dogs and “a lifetime of support free of charge.” You’ll be giving a pup out there an important job!
Turn your Valentine’s Day blues into Valentine’s Day pink and glitter!

Of course, this special milkshake is only available for a limited time and at limited locations in New York City, Los Angeles, and Atlanta from February 9 to February 18. If you’re one of the lucky ones who live by one of the locations serving the Love Shack Shake, take lots of pictures!
