If you don't have a human valentine this year, you might have better luck finding a new furry friend instead at "For the Love of Dogs," a pre-Valentine's event hosted at Dragonfly Robata Grill & Sushi.

The soirée includes a love-themed photo booth, pug kissing booths, and complimentary goodie bags with treats and grooming supplies provided by Woof Gang Bakery. The restaurant is also debuting its new dog-friendly patio menu.

What oozes love like hugging a pug? That's right — nothing. You can smooch a pooch at the Pug Rescue of Florida's pug kissing booth, run by Elizabeth Ashlea Pet Portraits, by donating a dollar. If you want to go all-in for your pup, you can pay $5 for a photoshoot with props and decor like hearts and baby Cupid.

They will also give away raffle prizes, including restaurant gift certificates, a pug gift basket and gift certificates for grooming and other goodies. All proceeds will benefit the Pug Rescue.

If this sounds like your kind of pre-V-Day shindig, bring your pups to the Dragonfly patio on Thursday, Feb. 13, from 5:30-7:30 p.m. Tickets are free but some spots are limited, so check out their event page for details.
