Mom - It was fun to see so many animals and people coming together at Broadway Barks. There were dogs of all sizes and shapes each longing for a forever home. All of them were so cute and sweet. I would have loved to adopt them all or at least a few if I had a bigger house and a lot more money. We actually adopted our own two cats from our local shelter and our late beloved cat, was also adopted from the same shelter. There were groups from quite a few different shelters and rescue groups representing cats as well as dogs at Broadway Barks. I never realized there were so many different shelters and rescue groups in New York. It's good to know that so many people care about animals. Even the pouring rain and the fact that there wasn't as much entertainment as their might have been otherwise couldn't put a damper on the day. Broadway Barks was still a lot of fun, and I would definitely go again and support this great cause.
