The 19th annual Broadway Barks, the star-studded dog and cat adoption event that benefits New York City animal rescue groups, will be held July 8 in Shubert Alley (located between 44th and 45th Streets between Broadway and Eighth Avenue).

The event, co-founded by three-time Tony recipient Bernadette Peters and the late Emmy winner Mary Tyler Moore, features celebrities of the Great White Way helping to find homes for animals in need from 27 participating NYC area shelters. The event, produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, will begin at 3 PM; celebrity presentations of adoptable pets will take place between 5–6:30 PM.

The featured co-host and celebrity participants will be announced at a later date. The annual fundraiser is free and open to the public.
