Ellis County SPCA is a nonprofit organization striving to help homeless or unwanted cats and dogs find permanent, loving homes. Before discovering a four-legged soul mate, interested applicants must complete and flawlessly origami-fold a pre-adoption form to ensure that they and their homes are qualified for pet ownership. Once potential owners are deemed fit and prepared for a pet, they may visit the facility during adoption hours to cuddle and caper around with hairy friends in much the same way death-metal bands bond before each practice. Each adorable quadruped will come home with parvovirus, distemper, and rabies vaccinations, as well as 30 days worth of free vet insurance through ShelterCare.
Now in its 31st year of facsimile fiefdom, the Scarborough Renaissance Festival transports fair-goers to 16th-century England with the reimagining of a 35-acre village jam-packed with spectacular performers, delicious eats, and old-fashioned shoppes. Merry men and maidens of all ages will carouse through an immersive schedule of more than 200 daily performances, highlighted by the Royal Falconer's presentation of his birds, three combat jousts daily, sword fights, jugglers, and knife-throwers taking aim at sass-mouthed jesters. Making the rounds among the crowds are 150 in-character volunteers dressed as resplendent royalty, ethereal faeries, and one fully conjoined Queen Anne Boleyn.
