In a statement last year, co-founder Mary Tyler Moore said, "Bernadette and I feel particularly optimistic about finding homes for dogs and cats in our city. Broadway Barks joins forces under the Mayor's Alliance which fosters communication among all shelters and rescue organizations." Peters added, "Over 300 animals have been adopted through the Broadway Barks events, and we're hoping that through this new partnership with the Mayor's Alliance, we will be able to double that number." Peters adopted both her dogs, Kramer and Stella, from city shelters.
Shubert Alley is located between 44th and 45th Streets, between Broadway and Eighth Avenue.
