    Potential adopters will have the opportunity to complete a short questionnaire before they visit the cat room or dog kennels.

  • Antonio Vivaldi’s “Griselda” is the simple tale of a woman and the struggles forced upon her by her husband as a cruel proof of honor.
    Griselda (Meredith Arwady) is the wife of the King of Thessaly, Gualtiero (Paul Groves), whose subjects are not very fond of the queen. As a result, Gualtiero forces Griselda to endure various tortures in order to prove to his people that she is worthy of her station. But there’s a twist: Griselda is completely unaware that Gualtiero’s actions are intended only to prove a point.
