Hosted by luminaries like Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore, co-creators of the event;Â the Â 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 BernadetteÂ 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!
Singer/songwriter Ashanti and Cairn Terrier “Nigel”Â hosted the “There’s No Place Like Home” dog adoption event at the New York Center in NYC May 30, 2009!
Ashanti also posed with one of the dogs for adoption, precious little “Willis”.Â Awww, I hope he got a great home!
Â Twenty-month-old Nigel was spotted by an animal trainer on the Humane Society website and after speaking to shelter personnel, he knew that Nigel had star potential!
Ashanti will be starring as Dorothy and Nigel asÂ (who ELSE?) Toto in the summer production of “The Wiz” which runs from June 12 through July 5, 2009 at the New York Center!
Celebs checked out the “must-have” luxury products for kids and their 4 legged babies at the Mother’s Day Silver Spoon Dog and Baby Buffet held May 9, 2009 at the Hyatt Regency Century Plaza in Century City CA.
The Buffet/Shopping extravaganza is eagerly looked forward to by the celebs and is sponsored by The Silver Spoon entertainment marketing group. Proceeds from the event go partially to the Amanda Foundation, a non-profit LA-based pet rescue organization, which had members present finding forever homes for some special pets in need!

Looks like everybody had a great time!

If you live in NY or have the means to get there, why not pencil in February 13th as BUSY and head over to THE PEDIGREE DOG STORE for Yappy Hour, hosted by Wendy Diamond and her dog, Lucky and Animal Fair magazine.
Bring your pup (as long as he or she fits in a carrier) and have fun socializing and mingling while knocking back a few cocktails if you’re legal (you, not your pup).
If you don’t have a dog, maybe you’ll find love the day before V-Day and bring home a new companion to make Valentine’s Day even sweeter.
