This Saturday, July 14th, Shubert Alley is hosting Broadway Barks 14. The event marks the fourteenth summer that homeless cats and dogs will have a chance to find a forever home and money, support and awareness will be spotlighted by members of the entertainment community.
Shubert Alley is the destination; the time is 3:30 to 6:30 PM. Hosted by friends and event founders Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore, Broadway Barks has raised the awareness of New Yorkers to the plight of homeless pets in the metropolitan area.
I've attended in years past and will be there again this year. There will be plenty of celebrities mingling with the animal lovers and the rescue groups. My friend Terri will be there with City Critters. Among the groups participating will be BARC, The ASPCA, Animal Care & Control, Sean Casey Animal Rescue, The Humane Society, Bide-A-Wee and breed specific rescue groups.
It's a great cause, a wonderful way to spend the afternoon, meet people, star-watch, donate, volunteer and possibly add a new canine or feline member to your family. Artie and I will meet up, visit with Terri, make the rounds of all the rescue groups, watch the auction, see the available adoptees and probably have dinner at Junior's.
If you can, get down to Broadway Barks, help save a pet and have a great time.
