MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (June 12, 2013)Grimaldi’s Pizzeria will partner with Lowcountry Lab Rescue on June 29 from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. for their inaugural adoption event on behalf of the Charleston no-kill animal welfare organization.

Lowcountry Lab Rescue depends on community support to save the lives of hundreds of dogs each year. Grimaldi’s Pizzeria will provide each person who completes paperwork for the dog adoption process at the event and then finalizes adoption with a $50 gift certificate to celebrate his or her new “slice of puppy love.” The event will take place at Mount Pleasant Towne Center on the patio right outside Grimaldi’s Pizzeria.

Alan Willett, Grimaldi’s general manager, has offered that anyone who drops off a donation of bedding, stainless steel bowls, blankets, 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 Lowcountry Lab 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.

“Grimaldi’s Pizzeria has a longstanding tradition of participating in community events centered on the protection of animals,” said Willett. “We are delighted with our partnership with Lowcountry Lab Rescue. Our goal is to help save the lives of as many dogs as we can.”
