Photo Flash: Broadway Pups Celebrate BROADWAY BARKS Birthdays
In anticipation of this year's BROADWAY BARKS event in New York City later this month, Broadway's Lena Hall and Lawrence Leritz celebrated the birthdays of puppies Ziggy and Lacey, adopted one year ago at BROADWAY BARKS. Check out a festive photo of them below!
The 18th annual star-studded dog and cat adoption event to benefit New York City animal shelters and adoption agencies will take place in Shubert Alley (located between 44th and 45th Streets, between Broadway and Eighth Avenues) on Saturday, July 30. Founded by Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore, Broadway Barks also features celebrities from the hottest shows currently on Broadway.
The event, produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, will allow attendees to meet all the adoptable dogs and cats starting at 3 p.m.; celebrity presentations of adoptable pets will take place between 5-6:30 p.m. This year's event will be co-hosted by Bernadette Peters and Gloria Estefan. The event is free and open to the public.
Marking its 18th anniversary, Broadway Barks will again help hundreds of New York City's shelter animals find permanent homes by informing New Yorkers about the plight of thousands of homeless dogs and cats in the metropolitan area. The popular and highly attended event will feature hundreds of adoptable animals from 27 animal rescue groups.
