COUNTDOWN TO NYE
Broadway Barks returns in person for the first time in three years! This year marks the 24th anniversary of the star-studded dog and cat adoption event, which benefits New York City animal rescue groups. The event, co-founded by Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore, features Broadway celebrities who use their star power to help find loving homes for animals in need from 25 participating NYC area shelters.
This year, Peters will host the event with Sutton Foster, who currently stars on Broadway in the hit musical The Music Man.
Over the last 20 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, produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, will take place in Shubert Alley (located between 44th and 45th Streets, between Broadway and Eighth Avenues). Festivities begin at 3 pm for a ‘meet and greet’ with all the adoptable pets. From 5–6:30pm adoptees make their Broadway debut on stage alongside some of Broadway’s favorite stars.
The event is free and open to the public.
