Going to the Dogs

Fur Real, Life's been Ruff: Dogs and Whataburger Make it Better

No doubt about it, dogs are the MVPs of the pandemic. They get all the extra ear-scratches when we're working from home, provide the perfect "the dog ate my homework" excuse for remote learners, and cheerfully leash up for extra walks to help us keep moving while the gym is closed.

So of course, Whataburger needed to pull out all the stops to celebrate National Dog Day with the Ulti-Mutt Pooch Party alongside our friends at the San Antonio Humane Society.

What happens when Whataburger takes over a shelter for a day? We bring out all the treats: a Whataburger doghouse, new pet gear, lots and lots of playtime, and a bacon-topped cake as we celebrate Whataburger's 70th Anni-fur-sary (that's 490 in dog years!)​.

Whether you want to adopt a dog, bid on that sweet Whataburger doghouse, unleash your dog's inner diva with our new pet swag, or just stare at cute puppies, we've got you covered. Sit. Stay. Order delivery. Fur real, you've earned this.


Whataburger has focused on its fresh, made-to-order burgers and friendly customer service since 1950 when Harmon Dobson opened the first Whataburger as a small roadside burger stand in Corpus Christi, Texas.
