Published by PETA.

No matter what you and your sweetheart have planned this Valentine’s Day, there’s always time to show animals a little kindness! Here’s a look at some of the best Valentine-themed ads PETA has published over the years to share the love—and the message. What’s your favorite?

Vegetarians Suffer Fewer Broken Hearts Ad

A 2013 study found that vegetarians are 32 percent less likely to suffer from heart disease. In fact, staying away from all the saturated fat and cholesterol in meat, dairy products, and eggs gives vegans a significant advantage in avoiding a range of life-threatening diseases—including cancer, strokes, and diabetes.

Spread a Little Love This Valentine's Day

These ads reminded people that pigs are smart, sensitive, and inquisitive animals who have the capacity to feel pain—just as humans do—and don’t want to die.

Don't Go Breaking My Heart

When they’re not being confined to filthy factory farms, pigs will spend hours playing, sunbathing, and exploring.

Let's Not Have Another Valentine's Day Massacre

People who run animal sanctuaries often report that pigs—like humans—enjoy listening to music, playing with soccer balls, and getting massages.

They Left My Heart in the Slaughterhouse

Pigs also enjoy snuggling with one another and prefer to sleep nose to nose.

Eating Meat Can Cause Impotence

2010 study suggests that those who suffer from erectile dysfunction “…are twice as likely to succumb to cardiovascular disease or heart attacks as those who do not have the problem.”

PETA’s affiliates have gotten in on the fun as well:

Eating Meat Got You Down? Ad

German researchers say that since penile blood vessels are smaller than those in the heart, atherosclerosis may appear in the penis a few years before it reaches your heart.

Remember, the best way to share the love with animals this Valentine’s Day is to go vegan!  Also, if you’re still looking for the perfect gift for your sweetheart, check out the PETA Catalog for something they’ll really love.

“Almost all of us grew up eating meat, wearing leather, and going to circuses and zoos. We never considered the impact of these actions on the animals involved. For whatever reason, you are now asking the question: Why should animals have rights?” READ MORE
