Come Support Broadway Barks

As many of you know, there have been several dogs abandoned in the dog run and in the park over the past few years. Most recently, we found a Pit Bull that Stray From The Heart was kind enough to foster. Without these small foster networks, many of these dogs wouldn't have a chance at a new life. If you are interested in adopting a dog or know someone who might be interested, this Saturday is the perfect day to visit with some wonderful dogs that need good homes at Broadway Barks.

The event is a star-studded dog and cat adopt-a-thon benefiting New York City animal shelters and adoption agencies. So even if you're not able to take home a new furry friend, they can really use your support.

Also, feel free to contact Beth (from Stray From The Heart) at her website if you are interested in volunteering or donating (this is not just monetary-she needs cleaning supplies, old sheets, towels etc.).

Marking the 10th Anniversary of the organization, BROADWAY BARKS 10 will again help many of New York City's shelter animals find permanent homes by informing New Yorkers about the plight of the thousands of "homeless" dogs and cats in the metropolitan area. Last year's BROADWAY BARKS! attracted an audience of more than 6,000 theater fans, pet owners, and animal lovers, and featured the participation of more than 24 animal shelters from the New York City area, as well as Broadway stars from the hit shows of the season.

BROADWAY BARKS 10 will feature a sampling of potential pets from several New York City animal shelters and adoption agencies, including A Cause for Paws, Adopt A Boxer Rescue, Animal Haven, Anjellicle Cats Rescue, ASPCA, AC&C, BARC, Bide-A-Wee, Bobbi & the Strays, City Critters, Humane Society of New York, Husky House, Kitty Kind, Long Island Greyhound Rescue, Loving Touch, Metropolitan Maltese Rescue, Mid Atlantic Great Dane Rescue, NYC Siamese Rescue, Pet-I-Care, PLUTO, Russell Refuge, Staten Island Council for Animal Welfare, Stray from the Heart, Tigger Foundation, Arf, and Save Kitty. Representatives from these organizations will be on hand to offer educational information on spaying and neutering.

BROADWAY BARKS 10 will also feature an auction of celebrity-autographed memorabilia. Proceeds from the auction and other donations received during the day will benefit the shelters and organizations attending BROADWAY BARKS 10.
