Photo Coverage: BROADWAY BARKS 11 - Backstage Part One
Mary Tyler Moore and Bernadette Peters hosted the eleventh annual BROADWAY BARKS!, a star-studded dog and cat adopt-a-thon benefiting New York City animal shelters and adoption agencies.
The event, produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS and sponsored by the ASPCA and PEDIGREE® with additional sponsorship by the New York Times took place on Saturday, July 11th in Shubert Alley (located between 44th and 45th Streets, between Broadway and Eighth Avenue). BroadwayWorld.com's cameras spent the day backstage as the stars met the pets!
BROADWAY BARKS 11 again helped many of New York City's shelter animals find permanent homes by informing New Yorkers about the plight of the thousands of "homeless" dogs and cats in the metropolitan area. Last year's BROADWAY BARKS! attracted an audience of more than 7,000 theater fans, pet owners, and animal lovers, and featured the participation of 26 animal shelters from the New York City area, as well as Broadway stars from the hit shows of the season.
BROADWAY BARKS 11 featured a sampling of potential pets from several New York City animal shelters and adoption agencies, including A Cause for Paws, Adopt A Boxer Rescue, Animal Haven, Anjellicle Cats Rescue, ASPCA, AC&C, BARC, Bide-A-Wee, Bobbi & the Strays, City Critters, Humane Society of New York, Husky House, Kitty Kind, Long Island Greyhound Rescue, Loving Touch, Metropolitan Maltese Rescue, Mid Atlantic Great Dane Rescue, NYC Siamese Rescue, Pet-I-Care, PLUTO, Russell Refuge, Staten Island Council for Animal Welfare, Stray from the Heart, Tigger Foundation, Arf, and Save Kitty. Representatives from these organizations were on hand to offer educational information on spaying and neutering.
BROADWAY BARKS 11 also featured an auction of celebrity-autographed memorabilia. Proceeds from the auction and other donations received during the day benefited the shelters and organizations attending BROADWAY BARKS 11.
