Will you be their mother? (or father, sister, brother!)

By Pat Blaufuss
Public Relations Manager

Westport Country Playhouse has partnered with Westport Animal Shelter Advocates (WASA) and the Pet Animal Welfare Society of CT (PAWS) around the Family Festivities show, “Are You My Mother?,” based on the popular book about a baby bird searching for its mother.

The pet adoption organizations will bring some of their dogs for possible placement with families, on Sunday, April 10, from 2 to 3:45 p.m., in the Lucille Lortel White Barn Center on the Playhouse campus. There will be a chance to meet dogs currently available for adoption with applications on hand to start the adoption process.

“The hope is to bring awareness of the pet adoption organizations to our audiences in between the performances of ‘Are You My Mother?’ and to get a few pups placed with new families,” said Peter Chenot, Playhouse director of marketing. “I have a family of rescued cats and a dog so this is near to my heart.”
