Bernadette Peters Will Host 2nd Virtual Edition of Broadway Barks

The 23rd installment of the annual pet adoption event, founded by Peters and the late Mary Tyler Moore, will stream in May.

Due to the ongoing pandemic, the 23rd annual Broadway Barks, the annual dog and cat adoption event co-founded by Bernadette Peters and the late Mary Tyler Moore, will again be held virtually.

Broadway Barks Across America is scheduled for May 23 at 7 PM ET. Three-time Tony recipient Peters will host the stream, featuring adoptable pets from shelters presented by animal loving celebrities from across the country.
