The Humane Society of Statesboro and Bulloch County is hosting a stand-up comedy show fundraiser, “Raise the Woof,” on Friday, Nov. 6 at Statesboro’s Springhill Suites. Doors open at 6 p.m. and the show will begin at 7 p.m.

Tickets are $25 per person, $40 per couple or $150 for a table of 8. Tickets include non-alcoholic drinks, hearty snacks and the show. Drink tickets can be purchased the night of the event for an additional fee, with the presentation of an ID.

                Proceeds from the show help animals like “Addie.” A black and white mixed breed dog, Addie wandered into the yard of someone who could not keep her. Addie became a shelter dog, and, even though she has a face that begs, “take me home,” no one chose Addie. After many days in the shelter, Addie received the label, “last chance” animal.

                Aware of her circumstances, the Humane Society rescued, vetted and spayed Addie, and she was soon adopted by Shauna Tietze. Shauna gave Addie a loving, forever home and both parties are thrilled with the new relationship.

                “She is the sweetest, happiest dog in the world,” said Shauna of the recent addition to her family. “She loves to cuddle, go for runs and play with my neighbor’s dog.

                “She gets tons of love and playtime, everyday.”

                Shauna admits that Addie may be just slightly spoiled. “She has so many toys!

                “She’s also very smart,” Shauna added. “I’ve taught her to sit, lie down, come, stay, and we’re working on shaking.”

                Apparently, Addie is not just a favorite of the Tietze household. “Addie has become GSU’s Bio-Graduate program’s favorite dog; everyone loves her,” said Shauna.
