Pigeon Forge, Tenn., May 26, 2016 – As animal lovers and advocates for animal conservation and rescue efforts, The Comedy Barn Theater®’s new “Amazing Animals Exotic Animal and Pet Show” is coming to the aid of the Sevier County Humane Society. After reading about the dire situation the Sevier County Humane Society is facing, the owners decided to help keep the doors open to the Humane Society’s shelter by challenging the community to raise the funds needed. All ticket proceeds from the Tuesday, May 31st, 2016, 2 PM “Amazing Animals Exotic Animal and Pet Show” at The Comedy Barn Theatre® in Pigeon Forge, Tenn, will be donated to the Sevier County Humane Society. Most of the animals featured in this new show are rescues, and the cast and staff are passionate about keeping the doors of the Humane Society’s shelter open.
Fee/Hedrick Family Entertainment Group’s CEO and President David Fee stated, “This is a short term solution to a long-term issue. The Comedy Barn Theatre® has donated over $100,000 to the Sevier County Humane Society in the past. We believe that animals are an amazing part of God’s creation and it is our responsibility to care for and protect them. We want to do everything within our power to help our furry friends and their Caretaker Friends at the Sevier County Humane Society. This problem goes way beyond a band-aid funding solution. Our community needs a new shelter, and they need our support now more than ever. We’re calling on our community and its leaders to help support such an important organization that provides such an essential service to thousands of animals each year.”
