Dunkin’ Donuts has reteamed with BARK for brand-new dog toys that are sure to delight any pups.
The second collaboration between the two brands is comprised of two dog toys: a treat-dispensing Dunkin’ coffee cup plush and a Dunkin’ donut plush and bag. Now available at participating Dunkin’ Donuts restaurants nationwide, both dog toys support the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation and its mission to bring joy to kids battling hunger or illness.
Fur parents can avail the dog toys by making a donation to the Foundation while supplies last. For a $12 donation at participating restaurants, customers will receive the Dunkin’ coffee cup plush, which is crinkly and packed with squeakers. It also features a small tab at the top that “pawrents” can lift to hide treats inside.
Meanwhile, for a $15 donation, guests will receive a Dunkin’ Domutt To-Go 2-in-1 toy, which includes a strawberry frosted donut plush filled with squeakers, and a crinkle to-go bag where dog treats can be kept.
Like all BARK dog toys, these Dunkin Donuts-inspired merchandise items are bright, durable, and perfect for dogs of all ages and sizes. Starting August 26th, dog parents can also get these limited-edition dog toys through BARKShop.com and BarkBox. Super Chewer subscribers can also get these dog toys as add-ons to their monthly box through Add-to-Box.
Following the official July 26th release of the dog toys, Dunkin’ Donuts is also launching its one-day-only Cup for Pup program on August 4th. Under the program, customers who bring their dogs with them on their Dunkin’ run can donate $1 to the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation and receive a Cup for Pup as a thank you. This dog treat features a 4 oz whipped cream delight in a cup, which is especially sized for a doggie snout.
“There is a continued need to raise awareness and funding for children battling hunger or illness, and at Dunkin’ we are always looking for meaningful opportunities to support this issue,” said Karen Raskopf, Co-Chair of the Board of Directors for the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation. “As dogs bring us all so much joy in our lives, this BARK partnership and the one-day Cup for Pup program celebrate our precious companions while providing an opportunity for our guests to help us raise significant funds for children in need”
Last year’s first Dunkin’ Donuts and BARK collaboration raised more than $1.8 million for the Foundation programs, including the Dogs for Joy, which brings full-time service dogs to children’s hospitals. The Foundation has granted more than $30 million since its inception in 2006 and will grant $7 million this year.
