The Broadway community joined hosts Bernadette Peters and James Franco to present puppies at the 16th annual Broadway Barks adopt-a-thon in Shubert Alley on July 12. Sponsored by the ASPCA and produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, the event helps hundreds of New York City's shelter animals find permanent homes in the metropolitan area. The organization was cofounded by Peters and Mary Tyler Moore.
