On Thursday, May 6, Finn's Grill took the opportunity to turn the exchange into something more.

On their Facebook page, the restaurant made a call for fans to share their post, pledging that the business would donate $1 to the shelter for every share it got, up to $2000.

Finn's Grill also offered to accept $1 donations in the store, and offering to match each one up to another $1,000.
