Tony Award-winning animal trainer Bill Berloni and cast members Jaidyn Young, Sadie Sink and Brooklyn Shuck were on hand May 8 for the official launch of Sandy’s Rescue Pals at the Palace Theatre.
The program puts "orphan" dogs under the bright lights of Broadway. Each Wednesday matinee, dogs from Bobbi and the Strays’ shelter will come to the Palace Theatre for an intermission meet-and-greet with audience members, who can meet shelter representatives, apply to adopt a dog and obtain information on rescue shelter and adoptions. Following the performance, shelter representatives will review audience adoption applications and determine the best home for those dogs. The team will also match additional shelter dogs with approved applicants from the pool.
