As if we needed another reason to love Bernadette Peters!
Brooklyn doesn't see a lot of Broadway, because that's a pretty long hike to get to Broadway, and who has that kind of time?
That's why Bernadette decided to stop by the neighborhood herself… as she toured with the Brooklyn Animal Resource Coalition!
Here's what she said:
"This is my passion. I realized what a womanizer is because I'm a dog-inizer. I want every dog, like the man who wants every woman."
Bernadette isn't joking — she's known to scan the lists of dogs scheduled to be euthanized, and rush over to save them from death! She'll even bring them to the no-kill shelter herself!
The reason for the visit is that she hopes it will be the last time she sees many of the pooches – a lot of them are taking part in Saturday's adopt-a-thon, which she co-founded 15 years ago called Broadway Barks!
Here's what a source says about that special day:
'The free event has grown from a folding-table affair with a few animals from six shelters to a mammoth one with celebrities, musical acts and animals from 27 shelters across the city. There will be signed memorabilia like calendars and stuffed dogs, with all proceeds going to help homeless animals.'
This is SO FAB!
Those cute little pooches deserve such amazing homes and all the love!
