Broadway Barks 8 — the annual adopt-a-thon created by pals Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore to find homes for pets from city animal shelters — will be held July 8 in Shubert Alley.

More information about the yearly event, which benefits local animal shelters and adoption agencies, will be announced shortly.

The fundraiser usually features an auction of celebrity autographed memorabilia as well as celeb presentations of pets from animal shelters. Last year's event boasted appearances by Victoria Clark (The Light in the Piazza); Rue McClanahan (Wicked); Maureen McGovern (Little Women); Denis O'Hare (Sweet Charity); Brad Oscar (The Producers); David Hyde Pierce and Christopher Sieber (Spamalot); Joanna Gleason and Gregory Jbara (Dirty Rotten Scoundrels); Harvey Fierstein and Andrea Martin (Fiddler on the Roof); Erin Dilly, Marc Kudisch and Jan Maxwell (Chitty Chitty Bang Bang); Mireille Enos, David Harbour and Bill Irwin (Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?); Billy Crudup, Jeff Goldblum and Madeline Martin (The Pillowman); Cheyenne Jackson and Alix Korey (All Shook Up); Ryan Duncan (Altar Boyz); Ginifer King, Marsha Mason and Frances Sternhagen (Steel Magnolias); Jesse Tyler Ferguson (25th Annual Putnam County Spelling Bee); John Glover (The Paris Letter); Michael Mulheren (La Cage aux Folles); Jeffrey Tambor (Glengarry Glen Ross); Shuler Hensley (The Great American Trailer Park Musical); and "Guiding Light" star Crystal Hunt.

In a statement last year co-host Peters said, "Mary and I are delighted that Broadway Barks continues to be such a popular event, and we are deeply moved by the enthusiasm and support from the legions of fans and animal lovers who attend the event every year."

Moore added, "We are especially pleased to report that the euthanasia rate in New York has dropped 26 percent since 2003. That's a very encouraging statistic. It means that people are rescuing thousands of New York City area dogs and cats each year by spaying and neutering or by adopting pets through shelters participating in events such as Broadway Barks."
