[Editor's Note: This story was first published on February 14, 2023. However, the zoo has re-introduced the same fundraiser this year.]

San Antonio Zoo in the United States is hosting a fundraiser allowing people to name a cockroach, rodent or veggie after their "not-so-special someone".


The cockroach, rodent or veggie will then be fed to an animal at the zoo, in a creative Valentine's Day fundraiser.

The zoo has asked interested customers to make a donation of $5, $10, or $25 in exchange for the same.


The campaign, called 'Cry Me a Cockroach', will send the donor a digital downloadable Valentine's Day card which will show their support towards the campaign.

People can also choose to send their "not-so-special someone" a Valentine's Day card informing them they were named after a cockroach, rodent, or veggie and fed to an animal at San Antonio Zoo.

The zoo also offers a $150 upgrade in which they would create a personalised video message of the cockroach, rodent, or veggie being fed to one of their animals for the donor to send to their "not-so-special someone".

The money collected in the fundraiser will be going towards their mission of securing a future for wildlife.
