Cat with hearts

This Valentine’s Day, share the love with our animal friends! Whether you’ve got a special someone to impress or are celebrating with your closest friends, make the holiday even sweeter with welfare-certified candies, dairy-free ice cream, plant-based cookie dough and other humane treats straight from our Shop With Your Heart Brand List. (Psst: Goodies for furry friends are also listed below!)

Look for the labels! These are the 3 certifications recognized by the ASPCA Shop With Your Heart program:

Animal Welfare Approved

Global Animal Partnership (GAP)

Certified Humane

Animal Welfare Approved (AWA) Global Animal Partnership (GAP) Step 2 and Up Certified Humane (CH)

(or a plant-based alternative, denoted by this icon !) When a product shows the basic GAP label without a number, look for separate language on the package identifying the product’s step level.
