BARK’s limited-edition Dunkin’-inspired plush dog toys are available November 1 to benefit the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation®

BARK, Inc., a leading global omnichannel brand with a mission to make all dogs happy, and Dunkin’, one of America’s favorite coffee brands, are teaming up for the third year in a row to support an important cause and bring joy to children (and dogs!) across the nation. Dog toys take the form of Dunkin’s signature iced coffee, frosted donuts and MUNCHKINS donut hole treats. 

Starting today, the dog toys are available as a thank-you when Dunkin’ guests make a donation to the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation at participating Dunkin’ restaurants nationwide and at

  • For every $12 donation made at participating Dunkin’ restaurants, guests will receive a Dunkin’ Iconic Iced Coffee dog toy. 
  • For every $15 donation made at participating Dunkin’ restaurants, guests will receive a Donuts on a Rope dog toy. 
  • Guests can also make a $15 donation at and receive a Dunkin’ Chocolate Glazed Donut dog toy or MUNCHKINS Donut Hole Treat dog toys.

Created by BARK’s team of designers, the dog toys feature Dunkin’-inspired shapes and special scents to bring the ultimate joy to America’s pups. The Dunkin’ Iconic Iced Coffee toy is made with a whip-n-flip straw, a deep squeaker, and is packed with fluff. The Donuts on a Rope toy is made with t-shirt rope and includes four squeakers. Each MUNCHKINS Donut Hole Treat toy features a spiky ball and scents of sugar, vanilla, and apple jelly. The Chocolate Glazed Donut toy is made of fabric in the shape of a chocolate-frosted donut, with a cream-scented rubber donut core. 

Since 2020, BARK and Dunkin’s collaboration has raised more than $4 million. To date, the Dunkin’ Joy in Childhood Foundation has funded 33 service dogs across 23 hospitals, impacting hundreds of thousands of young patients.

Donations will benefit the Foundation programs that provide joy to kids battling hunger or illness, including the Dogs for Joy program, introduced in 2018 to bring full-time service dogs to children’s hospitals. These dogs serve as not only a source of happiness for patients, but are also critical parts of patients’ treatment plans, trained to do tasks like teach kids how to take a pill, keep a child calm during a medical intervention, provide incentives for a child to get out of bed for a walk, and much more.
