VANCOUVER — A&W Canada is the first Canadian QSR to introduce a Pup Patty. Until June 23rd, dog parents can visit their nearby A&W drive-thru and purchase a Pup Patty for $2. The patties are cooked without A&W seasoning.

A portion of the proceeds from every patty will be donated to non-profit organizations in Canada dedicated to raising and training service dogs that provide life-changing independence to Canadians living with disabilities. The organizations include the Pacific Assistance Dogs Society (PADS).

“I’ve been a PADS volunteer for the past two years so this program is very close to my heart,” says Amanda Wang, A&W’s director of Marketing. “When I’m out with a service dog in training, it’s not just a learning opportunity for the puppy but it’s often a chance to enrich the public’s understanding of working dogs as well. I’m very grateful for the support from the whole A&W organization in running this campaign to help further the awareness of non-profits like PADS.”

“PADS is grateful to A&W not only for this imaginative approach to supporting assistance-dog programs across Canada but also for their corporate culture of volunteerism. The A&W team is truly changing lives, one dog at a time,” says Tara Doherty, director of Communications at PADS.
