A Rhode Island brewery recently held Pawdi-Gras, a celebration and pet adoption event that connected so many furry new friends with their forever humans.

We are heading into the season of being outdoors more often and one of my favorite things to do is hang at some of the local breweries. Craving a good local brew in the spring and fall months is practically a tradition for me now.

One of the best parts of hitting up the breweries for me, outside of the great beer, is being outside and meeting so many dogs. Yes, I enjoy meeting dogs just as much, if not more than, I enjoy meeting people.

I mean, it's the perfect day: sipping on a beer and petting the pups.

Recently, Pivotal Brewing Company in Bristol had a Mardi Gras-themed adoption event creatively named Pawdi-Gras.

Keep in mind, the pup in the picture above is Moxie, who is very much loved by the CEO of Pivotal Brewing Company, but we couldn't help but smile at how adorable Moxie was decked out in a colorful Mardi Gras costume.

After chatting with Pivotal, I found out 17 dogs were adopted that day from Rhode Home Rescue, a shelter that rescues animals from kill shelters. It was such a smashing success, the brewery intends to do another in the fall when it won't be too hot for the pups to strut about.

We have some pretty awesome breweries on the SouthCoast that would be awesome spots to hold one of these adoption events.

Breweries That Could Totally Host Animal Adoption Events

There's nothing like sitting outside at a SouthCoast brewery, but what if you could hang for a great cause on some of these SouthCoast spots, potentially bringing home a four-legged friend?

These are just a few. Can you think of some outdoor dog-friendly spots on the SouthCoast that could host cute costume-themed adoption events this spring?
