Brooke Adams, Kevin Chamberlin, Katie Finneran, Montego Glover, Tony Goldwyn, Ruthie Henshall, Hunter Ryan Herdlicka, Beth Leavel, Judy McLane, Michael Mastro, Jan Maxwell, Tony Shalhoub, Richard Thomas, and Ace Young will be among the celebrity participants at Broadway Barks 12, to be held in Shubert Alley on Saturday, July 10n from 3:30pm to 6:30pm. Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore will host this annual dog and cat adopt-a-thon.

The event, produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, will once again help many of New York City's shelter animals find permanent homes by informing New Yorkers about the plight of the thousands of "homeless" dogs and cats in the metropolitan area. The celebrity presentations of pets from citywide animal shelters will take place between 5:30pm and 6:30pm.

Following the event, Peters will hold a book signing of her new children's book Stella is a Star! in the lobby of the Schoenfeld Theatre, at approximately 7:15pm. The new book, published by Blue Apple Books, is about Stella, a pup who would rather be a graceful pig ballerina than what she really is: a dog no one seems to like. The book includes a CD with an original song written and performed by Peters.
