Everyone loves dogs. Especially Broadway stars. This year's Broadway Barks pet adopt-a-thon, to be held Saturday afternoon in Shubert Alley, will see the likes of Zach Braff, Audra McDonald, and Jessie Mueller trying to find darling doggies a good home. In honor of the event, now in its 16th year, check out some of our favorite photos of adorable Broadway stars and the adorable puppies they met while trying to find them good homes.
