Raise the WoofThe Comedy Connection is going to the dogs this Wednesday . . . for a good cause!

Comedians including Ray Harrington and Derek Furtado will come together for a special, one night only fundraiser for the East Greenwich Animal Protection League. Lite Rock 105’s Stephen Donovan of  “Heather and Steve in the Morning” will host.

Just like their animals, the East Greenwich Animal Protection League (EGAPL) is looking for a forever home. The no-kill, non-profit, all-volunteer animal shelter is working to raise money to purchase its own building to house and care for needy animals. Currently, EGAPL rents space from local animal hospitals, which limits the number of animals that can be rescued.

This month, comedians are coming together to help EGAPL in their mission at “Raise the Woof!” on Wednesday, March 18, at 8 p.m. at the Comedy Connection, 39 Warren Ave, East Providence.

Doors open at 6:30 p.m. for a special adoption hour, where you can meet Carol Burnett* and her puppies!

Tickets are $20 in advance and can be purchased online at RIComedyConnection.com or by calling 401-438-8383.

*Note: Carol Burnett is a dog!
