Goodspeed Tails

Goodspeed Musicals is thrilled to partner with several animal welfare organizations for a special Goodspeed Tails pet adoption awareness showcase. Multiple local pet adoption organizations will be on-campus for this unique pet adoption event. Shelters and rescues large and small will gather on the lawn of the Goodspeed Opera House to feature wonderful animals in need of forever homes.

This event will take place on Saturday, July 13 from 10:30 am to 12:30 pm, weather permitting. Attendees will be able to meet animals available for adoption on sight 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, Presents for Paws, and Protector of Animals.

This event is being held in conjunction with The Goodspeed’s production of Because of Winn Dixie, a new musicals about a girl, a stray dog and a town they’ll change forever. Because of Winn Dixie will run at The Goodspeed from June 28 to September 1, 2019. Cast of the new musical Because of Winn Dixie will be on hand to assist with adoptions.

Goodspeed encourages you to adopt a rescue animal and bring home your very own four-legged star!
