OMAHA, Neb., Aug. 17, 2023 – Even though it’s the dog days of summer, fall will be top of mind as Scooter’s Coffee puts a fun spin on its puppy-loved Pup Cups for National Dog Day on Saturday, Aug. 26. Dogs can enjoy a free, fall-inspired Pumpkin Spice Pup Cup made up of all dog-friendly ingredients, including whipped cream, a pumpkin dog treat, and a dusting of cinnamon. Also, in honor of National Dog Day, Scooter’s Coffee is funding adoption fees for dogs and cats at the Nebraska Humane Society, Aug. 26-27.

In addition to the Pumpkin Spice Pup Cup giveaway, the first 15 canine customers at each Scooter’s Coffee store on National Dog Day also will receive a bandana imprinted with the Scooter’s Coffee signature Smiley logo, at participating locations while supplies last.

“With the upcoming launch of the Scooter’s Coffee fall menu and popular pumpkin offerings, we wanted to provide something special for our pup friends to celebrate National Dog Day. It’s always fun to see our customers’ Pup Cup photos, and we look forward to seeing how their dogs enjoy the new Pumpkin Spice Pup Cups,” said Scooter’s Coffee Chief Community Officer Bill Black. “We also know how much dogs mean to our customers, so we are honored to help families provide pets a loving home by partnering with the Nebraska Humane Society.”

Scooter’s Coffee also is launching a search for the first-ever Scooter’s Coffee Dogfluencer. A participant may enter their dog in this Contest by timely completing all of the following actions:

Each year, National Dog Day raises awareness of rescue pets. That’s why Scooter’s Coffee is teaming up with the Nebraska Humane Society to make it easier for families to adopt a new best friend. The weekend of National Dog Day, Aug. 26-27, Scooter’s Coffee will fund pet adoption fees for dogs and cats, up to $5,000. Adoption fees ensure pets have been spayed or neutered, microchipped and vaccinated. A leash, collar and swag bag also are included when adopting a pet. 

“There is currently a nationwide influx of dogs entering shelters, and on any given day at the Nebraska Humane Society, there are approximately 150 rescue pets up for adoption,” said Pam Wiese, Vice President of Public Relations and Marketing at Nebraska Humane Society. “With help and support from Scooter’s Coffee, families can give pets a second chance at life by helping them find their forever home.”
