Grimaldi's Pizzeria Pizza & Pups Adoption Event on Saturday May 4

We are delighted with our partnership with Big Dog Ranch Rescue.

Grimaldi's Pizzeria will once again partner with Big Dog Ranch Rescue on May 4 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for an adoption event on behalf of the Wellington no-kill shelter. This is the second time Grimaldi’s Pizzeria has hosted an adoption event with Big Dog Ranch Rescue.

Big Dog Ranch Rescue depends on community support to save the lives of hundreds of dogs each year. Grimaldi’s Pizzeria will provide each person who adopts a dog that day with a $50 gift certificate to celebrate his or her new “slice of puppy love.” The event will take place at Downtown at the Gardens in Center Court right outside Grimaldi’s Pizzeria.

John Boinis, Grimaldi’s Area Manager, added that anyone who drops off a donation of bedding, stainless steel bowls, blankets, dog food, dog toys or a cash donation during the week prior to the event will receive a Grimaldi’s $5 gift card as a token of appreciation from the restaurant and Big Dog Ranch Rescue. On the day of the event, he and his staff will provide free mini pizza bites and cannoli tastings while visitors mix and mingle with the pups of all breeds and all ages.

“Grimaldi’s Pizzeria has a longstanding tradition of participating in community events centered on the protection of animals,” said Boinis. “We are delighted with our partnership with Big Dog Ranch Rescue, and were pleased with the results from last fall’s adoption event. Our goal is to make this one even better by helping save the lives of as many dogs as we can.”

Spotlight on Jack & Jill
Grimaldi’s Pizzeria’s highlighted “spokesdogs” for the May 4 Adoption Event at Downtown at the Gardens are Jack and Jill, best friends who have been at Big Dog Ranch Rescue for about one year. They were found wandering the streets of Miami together until a good person brought them into Miami Dade Animal Care & Control. From there, they went to BDRR and are still waiting to find their new home. Jack and Jill are about three years old and need to be adopted together as they are very, very bonded. They will do best in a home without cats.

Jill will rid any yard of unwanted lizards, or at least chase them away. Jack likes to play dress up and Jill is happy just putting her head on the nearest lap – both of them are a favorite among children. They are the odd couple, the yin and the yang, but really just Jack & Jill looking for a loving home, ideally at the top of the hill.
