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 chstails.auction-bid.org. Anyone interested in nabbing one of the eight storyteller spots can pitch a personal story to CHS by visiting bit.ly/TellYourAnimalStory. 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.
