This year Bernadette Peters has established Broadway Barks’ Mary Tyler Moore Award, in honor of her late friend and Broadway Barks co-founder. The inaugural honor will be given to French photographer and animal rights advocate Sophie Gamand at the 19th annual event July 8 at Shubert Alley. Peters and Moore launched Broadway Barks, produced by Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS, in 1999. Moore died January 25 this year at the age of 80 following complications resulting from her long battle with diabetes.

Peters will host the summer tradition this year alongside her Mozart in the Jungle co-star Malcolm McDowell. The pet adoption event will take place from 3 P.M. to 6:30 P.M., with a special signing with the two emcees set for noon. The 2017 edition will bring out Anastasia‘s own Christy Altomare, Hello, Dolly! Tony nominee Kate Baldwin, Come From Away Tony nominee Jenn Colella, Hello, Dolly! Tony winner Gavin Creel, Groundhog Day’s Barrett Doss, Cats’ current Grizabella Mamie Parris representing the felines, Come From Away’s Chad Kimball, Indecent’s Mimi Lieber, The Lion King star Jelani Remy, Hello, Dolly!’s Jennifer Simard, A Doll’s House, Part 2 Tony winner Laurie Metcalf, and Michael Xavier of  Sunset Boulevard revival and the upcoming Prince of Broadway. The list of celebrity participants is subject to change.

The new award will be given out each year to an individual or group that has advocated for the well-being of homeless animals and has encouraged others to do the same. Since 2010, Gamand has traveled the United States to photograph shelter animals and help them find permanent homes. Her photography series include Wet Dog and Flower Power, Pit Bulls of the Revolution.
