The Covington Arts Council is calling all dog lovers for, “Mutts Gone Nuts,” a family-friendly show featuring talented canines, set for Thursday, April 5.

“This is a perfect family show,” CAC Executive Director Paula Harr said. “It’s a canine caberet.”

The comedy features rescue dogs who entertain.

“The dogs do tricks, they catch high-flying Frisbees, walk a tightrope, and dance,” Harr said. “And they are treated with all the loving care anyone could imagine.”

The show’s two-fold purpose is to entertain, and to encourage the adoption of rescue animals. A portion of the proceeds from ticket sales will be donated to the Andalusia Animal Shelter, Andalusia Humane Society, and Opp Animal Shelter.

The CAC also is asking attendees to bring gifts of dog food, cat food, cat litter, blankets, and similar items for the shelters.

Following the show, for a $5 donation, attendees may be photographed with one of the canine stars. All proceeds will go back to the shelters.

“Adults will love this show as much as children will,” Harr said.

Pet enthusiasts may preview some of the canine tricks on YouTube.

The show is set for 7 p.m. on Thursday, April 5, in the Dixon Center of LBW Community College. Tickets are $15 in advance and $18 at the door, and $12 for children. Tickets are available at Harold’s Furniture and at The Star-News.

Corporate sponsors are Andalusia Animal Clinic, Jones Veterinary Hospital, and Walker Veterinary Services LLC.
