Comedy night to benefit homeless dogs

By Jessica Johnston, Assistant News Director

Community members are invited to spend an evening at Bryan Place to help save homeless dogs in Muskingum County.

On Saturday, Feb. 23, the Muskingum County Dog Warden and Adoption Center is hosting a comedy night to help fund the construction of a new facility. The adoption center’s current building is not optimal to accommodate the homeless pups in the community, thus presenting the need to move to a better facility.

“(The new facility) provides better care for the homeless dogs in Muskingum County, overall health mentally and physically,” Deputy Dog Warden Josh Martinez said. “The conditions here are just ill-equipped to do what we need to do.”

This is the second year the adoption center has hosted a comedy night at Bryan Place. Last year, the proceeds were split between funding the new facility and attending to medical needs of the animals. About $4,700 was raised during the event last year.

Doors for the event open at 6 p.m. for guests to order food and drinks, and the entertainment begins at 8 p.m. There will be T-shirts and hooded-sweatshirts available for purchase, as well as gift basket to be raffled and 50/50.

Tickets can be purchased in advance at the Muskingum County Dog Warden and Adoption Center or at Winerak Market, or guests can purchase tickets at the door the night of the event.

All proceeds from the evening will be donated to the adoption center to fund the building of the new facility.
