Animal Services to benefit from Miami Improv show

Miami Improv, 3390 Mary St. in Coconut Grove, presents “Puppies and Kittens!” on Wednesday, Nov. 7, at 8 p.m., offering a special night of standup comedy that is great fun for a good cause. All proceeds from the ticket sales will be donated to Miami-Dade County Animal Services Department.

The show features local comedians Forrest Shaw, Lisa Corrao, John Wynn and Nery Saenz, all of whom are proud owners of adopted pets. Tickets are only $15 and can be purchased online at www.laughstub.com/buyTicket.cfm?showTimingID=177735&buy.

“How often can you say that your fun night out on the town is actually doing something good for society?” said Lisa Corrao, comedian and organizer of event. “Tickets get people an evening at the best comedy club in Miami with some of the top stand-up comics in Florida, all while helping to save puppies and kittens. It’s a win-win situation.”

Each year, Animal Services receives over 30,000 pets. The goal of this event, as with any event in which the department participates, is to increase pet adoptions and community awareness and involvement with the shelter.
