“Arts for Animals” partnership raises money, awareness with live theater

Popovich Pet Comedy Theater


The Humane Society of the Ozarks has partnered with Walton Arts Center for “Arts for Animals,” a fundraiser and awareness campaign for the humane treatment of animals.

Throughout the month of March, when patrons purchase a ticket to any of this season’s animal-themed performances, Walton Arts Center will donate $1 to the Humane Society of the Ozarks.

The “Arts for Animals” series kicks off on April 6 with Popovich Comedy Pet Theater, a unique pet performance with rescue animals, and ends with the musical mystery, Scooby-Doo Live! in late May.

To order tickets, call the Walton Arts Center box office at 479-443-5600 or visit waltonartscenter.org and use the code GERBIL.
