Cry Me a Cockroach Fundraiser

Back for its third year, San Antonio Zoo hosts its Cry Me a Cockroach Fundraiser, where funds raised support the zoo’s vision in securing a future for wildlife! This Valentine’s, join in the fun by donating to symbolically name a cockroach, rodent, or veggie after your ex-partner, boss, or bestie. Now here’s the best part…you then get to watch as we offer it up as a snack to some of the animals!

As a part of your donation, you will receive:

  • customizable certificate showing your support for the Cry Me a Cockroach Fundraiser. Be sure to share the fun on social media with hashtag #CryMeACockroach and tag @SanAntonioZoo on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and TikTok!
  • An email with a video of a cockroach, rodent, or veggie being fed to an animal here at the zoo.


Did your ex-partner, boss, or bestie really make 2021 difficult? Upgrade your donation to our personalized option, and we’ll send you a personalized video message of your cockroach, rodent, or veggie being fed to one of the animals. Let’s keep it PG-13 of course! Keep in mind, this option is limited and will sell out fast as only a total of 50 personalized video messages will be accepted.
