Pet adoption event to take place before KCPA ‘Mutts Gone Nuts’ show

The Kirtland Center for the Per­forming Arts in Roscommon is host­ing a special meet and greet before its next show, Mutts Gone Nuts, April 13.

Prior to the show, from 5 to 7 p.m., showgoers can meet adoptable pets from Claws and Paws Rescue in West Branch and the AuSable Valley Animal Shelter in Grayling. Patrons will get the lowdown on pets who are angling for a foster or forever home. Patrons are asked to bring a donation of blankets, cat litter or food to sup­port their local rescue shelters.

Both no-kill shelters also are presenting pets and information on pet selection, care and adoption to school children at Grayling El­ementary, Roscommon Elementary, Roscommon Middle School and to students and clients at the COOR/ ROOC Intermediate School District during the days preceding the Mutts Gone Nuts show at KCPA.

Canines and comedy will collide in the smash hit performance, Mutts Gone Nuts, April 13 at KCPA. From shelters to showbiz, these amazing mutts unleash havoc and hilarity in an action-packed comedy dog spec­tacular at 7 p.m.

Every one of the 10 star tricksters of Mutts Gone Nuts has been res­cued from a shelter or breed adop­tion program. The audience will meet and be amazed by Chico the chihuahua, Feather the greyhound, border collies Chuck Taylor and Mr. Finnie, Charlie the Jack Russell ter­rier and celebrity mutts Rox Steady, McNerdy, Geronimo and Paco, who boast belly rubs from David Letter­man and Whoopie Goldberg.

Adult tickets are $25 while kids 12 and under are $13. A family of four (two adults and two kids) can buy a family four-pack for $65. Se­nior or group discounts of $3 are also available.

Call the box office (Monday through Friday, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.) at 275-6777 to access discounts or pur­chase regularly-priced tickets and family four-packs at kirtlandcenter.com.
