Animal shelters are always coming up with ideas to grab attention and raise funds.
An Ohio animal shelter is offering a plan that may appeal to anyone still feeling the ache of a toxic ex.
For a $5 donation, the Animal Friends Humane Society will write your ex’s first name in a litter box and give it to the cats.
Don’t spend this Valentine’s Day down in the dumps! Instead cheer yourself up while making a difference for animals in need, the shelter wrote on its Facebook page.
The donations have been pouring in. One donor said.
I just donated for a friend AND myself, two guy names, one shared great evil. Willing to send more to see names actually pooped on. 😂
On Valentine’s Day, the shelter will post a video on Facebook showcasing all of the names it receive, in the litterboxes.
Other animal shelters and zoos are also taking on an anti-Valentine’s Day message. The San Antonio Zoo is offering donors the chance to name a cockroach after an ex and feed it to an animal
The annual “Cry Me a Cockroach” fundraiser will “support the zoo’s vision of securing a future for wildlife in Texas and around the world.” the San Antonio Zoo says.
Those not into bugs can choose a vegetable for $5 or a rodent for $25 instead.
All donors will receive a digital Valentine’s Day Card showing their support for the zoo. They can also opt to send their ex-boo a digital Valentine’s Day Card informing them that a cockroach, rodent, or veggie was named after them and fed to an animal.
Those with an especially stubborn ex can pay for a $150 upgrade, which includes a personalized video message to the recipient showing their cockroach, rodent or vegetable being devoured by an animal.
The annual event is a hit, Cyle Perez, the zoo’s director of public relations, told CNN.
Last year, they received more than 8,000 donations from all 50 states and over 30 different countries.
“Right now, we are on track to break last years record, with ‘Zach,’ ‘Ray’ and ‘Adam’ being the most submitted ex-names so far,” Perez said.
