Goodspeed hosts pet adoption event Saturday
Goodspeed Musicals is partnering with several animal welfare organizations for a Goodspeed Tails pet adoption awareness showcase from 10:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, weather permitting.
Multiple local pet adoption organizations will be on-campus for this pet adoption event. Shelters and rescue organizations large and small will gather on the lawn of the Goodspeed Opera House off Main Street in East Haddam to feature animals in need of forever homes.
Attendees will be able to meet animals available for adoption on site as well as make plans for adopting in the future.
In addition, there will be opportunities to learn more about outreach, welfare, foster and wellness programs. Participating organizations include Bandit’s Place, BarkVille, Connecticut Animal House, Connecticut Humane Society, Help Willy’s Friends, Homeward Bound, Meriden Humane Society, Our Companions and Protector of Animals.
This event is being held in conjunction with The Goodspeed’s production of “Because Of Winn Dixie,” a new musical about a girl, a stray dog and a town they change. “Because of Winn Dixie” will run at The Goodspeed through Sept. 1. The show’s cast members will be on hand to assist with adoptions.
Bill Berloni, Tony Award-winning animal director of “Because of Winn Dixie,” “Annie” and many more productions, says, “if we can change one person’s thinking and save one animal’s life, it is all worth it.”
