Red Deer’s own “one man three-ring circus” will perform a free show on Wednesday at The Hub.

The Redwoods Retirement Residence is accepting donations of used towels and bedding on behalf of Paws and Claws Animal Rescue Foundation. The volunteer, non-profit organization, based in Red Deer, rescues dogs and cats in co-operation with Sunchild and O’Chiese First Nations. Animals taken in stay at volunteer foster families, mostly in the Red Deer area, until a permanent home is found. Donations can be dropped off in the reception area at the Redwoods, located at 6 Daykin St. in Red Deer, until Sept. 30. For more information about Paws and Claws Rescue, visit www.pawsandclaws
