Anyone who loves a good story is in for a real treat. And if you love animals? Even better.

Seats are on sale now for “Tell Me Another: Tails,” a storytelling show set for Saturday, April 21, 6:30 to 10 p.m., benefiting Connecticut Humane Society pets. Eight storytellers will take to the stage at the Town and County Club, 22 Woodland St., Hartford, to share personal tales (err, tails) of life experiences that all center around animals, according to a press release from the Humane Society.

These aren’t once-upon-a-time, happily-ever-after fairytale stories. They’re personal, they’re emotional, they’re cry-from-laughing-so-hard hilarious, and they’re all real.

Along with a great show, guests can also look forward to delicious hors d’oeuvres, drinks, and a silent auction (think getaways, works of art and culinary packages). The evening includes free on-site parking.

All funds raised at the storytelling event will benefit lifesaving care of pets at CHS. Pets like Norman, a 3-year-old cat found outside as a stray who needed eye surgery in CHS’ medical department and has gone to a new, loving home. And like Mandi, a 10-year-old bulldog/boxer mix who had a mass removed and was monitored for a heart murmur at CHS before finding her new family.

With each pet at CHS receiving full-service medical treatment — ranging from spays, neuters and vaccinations to more complex expert care — by a staff veterinary team, funds for medical care are needed more than ever before. Proceeds from “Tell Me Another: Tails” will support this lifesaving medical attention.

Reserve seats at Anyone interested in nabbing one of the eight storyteller spots can pitch a personal story to CHS by visiting Five winners with great stories will be chosen for the opportunity and workshop their piece with Terry Wolfisch Cole, one of the event’s three featured storytellers.

Author Signing with Judea

Connie will be at the wonderful, welcoming Breakwater Books located on the Green in Guilford, Connecticut, to sign her newly published book, Hogan's Hope. Her sweet, deaf pup, Judea, will accompany Connie to demonstrate just how smart deaf dogs are and what great family members they can be with the love and acceptance they deserve.

A special addition is that the Connecticut Humane Society will be in attendance to distribute rescue and adoption information about the exemplary work done to find forever homes for thousands of needy pets. Visitors will be able to seek answers to questions regarding the adoption process and other pet related facts and care.

Connie and Judea's mission is to strengthen the belief that with hope anything is possible.
