How Cane Rosso Restaurant Is Helping Rescue Dogs

At Dogster magazine, we love when a restaurant goes to the dogs! So it’s no surprise that when we’re in Texas, our restaurant group of choice is Cane Rosso. The restaurants specialize in authentic wood-fired Neapolitan pizza along with other traditional Italian dishes. What makes Cane Rosso and owner/creator Jay Jerrier (who has seven dogs of his own!) even more special is the Cane Rosso Rescue founded in 2014.

“Cane Rosso, the name of our restaurant group, means ‘red dog’ in Italian and is named after our first dog, Zoli — also the name of one of our new restaurants,” Jay tells us. “The plight of abandoned, abused, neglected and unwanted dogs is something that has always touched me. Lily Tomlin once said, ‘I said “someone should do something about that” … then I realized that I was “someone.”‘ I’m fortunate enough to be in the position to do something about it … so I am.”

The volunteer-based 501 (c)3 nonprofit focuses on foster care, veterinary treatment and providing transportation and other essential needs for dogs who need homes. It has its own network of fosters and dogs, plus it supports other Texan rescues by holding Pups on the Patio pizza, fundraising and pet adoption events at the Cane Rosso restaurants where patrons’ donations are matched by Cane Rosso and then given to a local rescue. You can also support the rescue(s) by “rounding up for rescue” when you pay your bill. “With the number of guests that visit us across 10 restaurants, it really adds up,” Jay says.
