Hugh Jackman, Alex Brightman, Ramin Karimloo, and Many More Set For BROADWAY BARKS

This year, Peters will host the event with The Music Man's leading lady, Sutton Foster. 

Broadway Barks returns to Shubert Alley on Saturday, July 9th, 2022 for the 24th annual star-studded dog and cat adoption event, the first in-person event since 2018. Co-founded by Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore, the event features adoptable animals from 25 NYC area adoption agencies and rescue groups along with Broadway's biggest names who use their star power to help them find loving homes.

This year, Peters will host the event with The Music Man's leading lady, Sutton Foster. Produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, Broadway Barks will take place in Shubert Alley (located between 44th and 45th Streets, between Broadway and Eighth Avenues). Festivities begin at 3 p.m. with a 'meet and greet' featuring all the adoptable pets (adoption event); from 5-6:30 p.m. adoptees make their Broadway debut on stage alongside some of Broadway's favorite stars (celebrity presentations).

Over the past 23 years, more than 2,000 cats and dogs have stolen Broadway's spotlight and the hearts of all who come to the event. Approximately 85% of these furry friends have successfully found forever homes.

The event is free and open to the public.
