If you love dogs and pizza, one Western New York restaurant has a deal for you.

Just Pizza & Wing Co. in Amhurst started slapping photos of dogs in need of forever homes onto their carry-out boxes.

On a post to Facebook, the restaurant said, "We are so excited to share that we have teamed up with our friends at Just Pizza & Wing Co. Amherst, NY to help get our shelter dogs adopted! Be on the lookout for a sweet face on your pizza boxes this weekend!"

The unique idea came after Mary Alloy, one of the owners, started volunteering with the Niagara Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals.

According to Alloy, their customers are "absolutely loving" it. Better yet, it already worked. On Saturday, a 6-month-old puppy named Larry was adopted.

"We are all animal lovers here, so I got permission from the franchise to do it and immediately got to work."

Those who do leave the Niagara Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals with one of the featured best buddies will be rewarded with a $50 gift certificate to use at the pizza shop.
