New York Ice Cream Shop’s Pup Cups Raised Over $1K For Shelter
2020 is now a little less ruff thanks to the folks at De Dee's Dairy in Niagara Falls.
The Western New York ice cream shop set out with a fun new idea for this year's summer season. Back in June, the shop started selling pup cups, vanilla custards complete with dog bones, and made a donation of $1 to the Niagara County SPCA for each pup cup sold.
As if this idea couldn't get any cuter, De Dee's stuck pictures of some of the shelter's adoptable dogs on popsicle sticks in the pup cups, all in hopes of spreading the word and encouraging people to adopt local shelter dogs.
Last week, De Dee's Dairy presented the Niagara County SPCA with the final check, which totaled $1,100. The shelter shared the news on its TikTok page, and one of its pups, Macey, was there to join in on the celebration.
Pretty stinkin' adorable, right? Macey has since been adopted and is living her best life in her forever home.
You may remember another sweet pup named Joey, who just a couple of months ago, was finally adopted after spending more than 500 days with the Niagara County SPCA. It was an emotional goodbye for all of the shelter's staff, who sent Joey off with a bunch of colorful Hawaiian leis and love.
Joey is more than grateful to be with his forever family, so much so that the shelter said in every photo Joey's owners send them, he's giving them hugs.
