Comedians Take the Stage at Small's to Help Bark Nation

This Friday head to Small's to laugh your butt off while helping out some pups! Your favorite corner bar in Hamtramck is hosting a Comedy Show and Bark Nation DACC Heartworm Fund Benefit that's being put on by the same people that bring you Ray & Laura's Comedy Showcase. The event will feature six comedians for the low cost of $5, which will go to Bark Nation.

Bark Nation is a 501c3 based out of Wixom, MI. The group's mission is to "bring the Canine American welfare community together to put an end to the over-populated, over-euthanizing, over-ignorant, under-educated practices of the nation that we live in". They help out shelters in the area, they advocate for victimized dogs, help with their medical and behavioral rehabilitation, help raise awareness in the community, hold free spay and neuter clinics, and even foster dogs. Their fosters, referred to as TeamZomo, include survivors of dog fighting as well as other "special souls". You can see adorable photos of their current and past rescues here. This specific benefit will help raise money to assist with the treatment and care of dogs with heartworm. Click here to learn more about the event.

The list of comedians performing on Friday night include Laura Witkowski, D'Anne Withkowski, Holly Schmolly, Ellen Stachowicz, Nicki Wright and Esther Nevarez. Doors will open at 8 p.m. and the show is set to kick off at 9 p.m. 21+ are welcome to attend.

If you would like to help out Bark Nation, but can't make it out to the show on Friday, there are some other ways you can give them a hand. They are always looking for volunteers to help with the dogs as well as people to help with fundraising events and efforts. You can also show your support by buying Bark Nation gear online here. Or, you can buy them items off their Amazon Wishlist. You can even just make a donation via PayPal or by shopping through Amazon Smile. For all of this information and more, just head over to!

Small's bar is located at 10339 Conant St. in Hamtramck. For information on this event and other upcoming events at Small's, head over to
