Hosted by luminaries like Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore, co-creators of the event; the  11th annual “Broadway Barks” citywide adoptathon took place in Shubert Alley in NYC July 11, 2009!

The star-studded event benefits NYC animal shelters and animal adoption agencies and helps many of the NYC shelter animals find permanent homes and is sponsored by the ASPCA and Pedigree Pet Foods. There was a book-signing by Bernadette and celebrity presentation of adoptable pets, seen below.

Bernadette Peters, who adopted her dogs, Kramer and Stella, from the ASPCA and the AC&C added, “We’re doing our part to make New York City a more humane place for animals. Through our collaborative efforts, of which Broadway Barks is a part, we’re moving steadily toward our goal of ensuring that every healthy and treatable dog and cat in New York City has a home.”

From 2002 to 2008 the number of animals being euthanized in NYC shelters went down from 74% to 39%, which equates to approximately 15,000 LESS animals put to sleep! That’s HUGE!

Good on you, Bernadette and MTM! You and all the other celebs using their fame to such a great cause!
