Cats Back on Broadway. Dogs, too.

Saturday, July 14 from 3:30 to 6:30 p.m., the 9th annual [Broadway Barks] benefit for New York City animal shelters and adoption agencies will take place in [Shubert Alley](http://www.broadwaynewyork.com/about.asp). Stars like David Hyde Pierce, Mary Tyler Moore and Bernadette Peters (pictured), as well as Bruiser and Rufus from [Legally Blonde](http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Legally_Blonde), will all be and hand, not to mention over 150 cats and dogs. Besides the chance to adopt a cute and cuddly animal in need, they’ll be auctioning off celebrity autographed memorabilia and merchandise for those of you more into inanimate objects.


Host Mary Tyler Moore said, “For the first time in New York City’s history, the euthanasia rate for cats and dogs in the city’s [Animal Care & Control] shelters has fallen below 50 percent.” Co-host Bernadette Peters added,” It’s bringing us closer to the day when we don’t have to euthanize any healthy and treatable homeless cats and dogs because of a lack of space.”


Broadway Barks, produced by Broadway Care/Equity Fights Aids, is sponsored by the ASPCA, The New York Times, Pedigree and RCA Small Wonder. Last year the event drew an audience of more than 6,000, but somehow we know there’ll still be [enough pets to go around].
