Love is in the air...for some. For others, love is in the litter box.

Valentine's Day is almost here and those who are in strong relationships are hustling to get their date night plans locked down. Apparently, Americans are going to be spending about $200 on their lovers for Valentine's Day this year (that's up $20 from last year).

Send Your Ex to the Litter Box in Saugerties, NY

Forget the chocolate, flowers and fancy dinners. Those who are broken hearted this Valentine's Day can have some Valentine's Day fun too thanks to Saugerties Animal Shelter.

On Facebook, the Ulster County shelter wrote "We're taking names and the cats are kicking litter" adding a promotional photo for their Not So Sweet Valentine's Day Fundraiser.

For a $5 donation, the Saugerties Animal Shelter will write your ex's name in the litter box at the shelter and let their adoptable cats do the rest of the work. If your ex did you dirty, you can do them dirty, right!?

Donations are to be made through Paypal: @sawf2020 or Venmo: @sawfsas.
