For over 40 years Bill Berloni has been the go-to animal trainer for theatrical productions in New York City and around the country. He has written a book, "Broadway Tails," (which I just ordered!) featuring the rescued animals he has trained for Broadway Shows, starting with Sandy in the original company of "Annie." He and his wife have a farm in Connecticut that is currently the home for 37 pets, mostly rescues. When the pandemic hit and all shows closed their income stopped, but the expenses of caring for their animals continued.

On May 5th several of their friends started a GoFundMe page, Theatrical Animals Fund, to help with the cost of the animal upkeep. Here is the link http://gf.me/u/x2a6fm You will find the history of their work and a place to donate to the fund. For all of you who love animals, I want to share with you a side note about when they built their home on the farm. They designed the house with half of the living space for themselves and their daughter, Jenna, and the other half for the animals who lived indoors to have a safe haven.
