The annual pet adoption event will celebrate its 20th anniversary July 14 in Shubert Alley.
Broadway Barks, the pet adoption event founded in 1999 by Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore, will celebrate its 20th anniversary July 14. Since its founding, more than 2,000 cats and dogs have been adopted thanks to a bit of help from their famous Broadway pals. Approximately 85 percent of these furry friends have successfully found forever homes.
Broadway Barks, produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, partners with the Broadway community to help find homes for animals in need from 28 participating NY-area shelters. The July 14th event will be hosted by Hello, Dolly! co-stars Bernadette Peters and Victor Garber in Shubert Alley.
The prolific producer, along with frequent collaborator Neil Meron, was behind such musical-driven projects as Smash, NBC’s live musicals, and the Broadway revival of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying.
