When all the fireworks have been shot off and your pets are calm again, don’t forget that Broadway Barks is taking place on July 8th. In it’s 19th year, co-founder Bernadette Peters will co-host the event with her Broadway co-star Malcom McDowell.
Each year this event showcases shelter animals from all over the New York City area who are ready for adoption. It’s free, open to the public and full of animal loving Broadway celebrities donating their time to help find homes for shelter animals.
Originally conceived by Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore as a program to promote the adoption of shelter animals, Broadway Barks fostered a spirit of community among many animal shelters and rescue groups. Beyond the annual event, there are now year round programs supported by the group.
