Let’s be honest: we all love a good cat story.  And no one does live storytelling quite like Backfence PDX, which features a mix of local and out-of-town performers telling true personal tales based on each night’s theme. Join us on Saturday, September 16, for storytelling all about cats. Backfence will be donating a portion of the night’s ticket sales to our shelter, and Animal Aid representatives will be onsite to share our own cat tales and other exciting news happening at our shelter.
