Puppuccino Pals

A Matcha-Made in Heaven: Become a Puppuccino Pal

Beginning in April 2016, Kitsap Humane Society was looking for ways to promote adoptable animals when a former team member and a current volunteer came up with the idea of Puppuccino Pals.

A “puppuccino” is a small cup of whipped cream, and KHS found a partner in showcasing adorable adoptable pups with these pint-sized cups in a local Starbucks.

This marketing and social media promotion took off! And Kitsap Humane Society was featured in several local and national publications, including: The Dodo, The Bark, Teen Vogue, AOL News, Refinery29, and more, where Kitsap Humane Society was credited with popularizing the “secret menu item” at Starbucks and other coffee shops.

And for the last five years, KHS has continued to share Puppuccino Pals every Tuesday across our social media platforms, reaching over 80,000 followers.

Now, we’re looking for new ways to freshen up the program as well as highlight local coffee shops and stands through a formalized sponsorship agreement that will not only help find homes for dogs in need but also showcase your coffee shop or stand as a local business to support!
