And the shelter staff are ready to help you adopt your very first cat — or to bring home a friend for another beloved cat!

Join us for a night of Beer Tastings and Shakespearean Revelry! To brew or not to brew, that is the question. After all; the empty vessel makes the loudest sound.

William Shakespeare’s classic comedy of errors takes the stage, complete with the mischievous Puck, a host of fairies and a sprightly youth cast.

“Dancing A Midsummer Night’s Dream again means that we get to see things that we didn’t see before,” Vasterling said.” We have a different perspective, whether it’s because of an audience member’s seat location, choreographic additions or even a unique situation in their life at the time. The work is a living, breathing entity and there’s always something new to see.”
