Lovelorn? Vent with a personalized poo-gram that benefits animals

If your significant other — current or former — has you down in the dumps this Valentine’s Day season, a local business has the poop on relieving yourself of that burden.

Region Scoopers Dog Waste Removal out of Crown Point has teamed up with the Humane Society of Hobart Inc. to remind you of how fetid your former flame is via Poo-grams. For $5 a poop, you may submit the name of your stinker, and Region Scoopers will put their name on a fresh, hand-scooped deposit for Valentine’s Day, President Scooper John Noonan said.

While they don’t deliver the piles to your be-loathed, they will take a picture of it and send it for you to enjoy in perpeturdity, Noonan said. What you decide to doo with it afterward is up to you.

“It’s a small price to pay,” Noonan said.

A construction worker who started Region Scoopers initially as a side hustle before digging in full-time after a work accident, Noonan came up with the idea for the Poo-grams after seeing something similar online. He reconfigured the idea, then decided what better way to further celebrate than to help one of his favorite causes.

“They do so much there and deserve all the love, so I know it’s going to a good cause,” he said. “And really, who wouldn’t want to send (a picture of poop) to their ex?”

So far, more than 50 people have dropped a deuce — er, fiver on the fundraiser, Noonan said, and he expects more before the Feb.13 deadline. If you don’t have a feculent friend who deserves a pile, you’re more than welcome to tell the Indiana General Assembly how you feel about what’s happening downstate this session, as one customer did when she bought a big bag and had Noonan write “H.B. 1412” for the Puppy Mill bill on it and posted it to his social media page.

“We haven’t had anything too crazy yet, but it’s whatever I can fit onto the bag, and there’s no limit on the bags,” he said.

To procure a Poo-Gram, those interested can send $5 to either paypal.me/regionscoopers or CashApp: $RegionScoopers with a name and the donor’s phone number no later than Feb. 13, and they will send your picture within 48 hours, Noonan said.
