Dunkin' Donuts Shows Love for WNY Animals With Special Sale of Heart-Shaped Treats

Buffalo, N.Y. (WKBW release) -- Dunkin’ Donuts is brewing up a special treat for man’s best friend when heart-shaped donuts return to the restaurant’s shelves this November in support of the second-oldest humane society in the country.

All participating Dunkin’ Donuts locations throughout the greater Buffalo area will offer guests a special heart-shaped donut as a thank you when they make a $1 donation to the SPCA at participating restaurants.

“Dunkin’ Donuts is honored to support the critical work and innovative programs of the SPCA, which provides the highest quality of care to both the animals and residents of Western New York,” Dunkin’ Donuts Franchisee Tim Cloe said in a news release. “I encourage residents throughout the greater Buffalo area to enjoy a special treat while supporting the SPCA. I am confident our loyal guests will be as enthusiastic as ever in raising funds for an organization that is so important to our community.”

The specialty donut is a heart-shaped yeast shell filled with angel cream and topped with blue icing designed to resemble the SPCA logo. The donut will be available at participating Dunkin’ Donuts locations throughout the greater Buffalo area through December 10.

The availability of the heart-shaped donuts leads up to the 8th annual Radiothon to benefit the SPCA, which will return to the airwaves on December 8 through 10. During the three-day event, local radio stations WBEN 930 AM and 107.7 FM and Star 102.5 FM will give a voice to the animals through a live broadcast from the SPCA’s headquarters in Tonawanda, NY, to raise funds for the SPCA and its services.

Over the past seven years, the annual radiothon has raised nearly $1.3 million for the programs and services of the SPCA, including 24-hour animal rescue, animal cruelty investigations, emergency veterinary care, animal adoptions and admissions, and humane education for children and adults.  For more information about the SPCA, please visit www.YourSPCA.org.
