Annie The Musical And Pedigree Announce Sandy's Rescue Pals Plus The Adventures of Sandy Part III

If you saw the Tony Awards the other night, you saw Sunny the former shelter dog, who plays Sandy in the Tony nominated revival of Annie, make a show-stopping, lip-smacking appearance with the host, Neil Patrick Harris. Now there's an adorable duo! But Sandy's got even more show-stopping ideas up her paw - in partnership with Annie's current production team, Pedigree, and a New York animal shelter called Bobbi and the Strays'.

Sandy aims to help her own kind (dogs in shelters), by facilitating a weekly introduction: a dog looking for his or her forever home will do a "meet and greet" with Annie's matinee audience every Wednesday. The kickoff for "Sandy's Rescue Pals" was May 8th and included Sandy's trainer, Bill Berloni (featured in two previous posts) and several stars from the Annie cast. What a fabulous idea: a shelter dog who became a Broadway star helping other shelter pups get their forever home!

   Here's Berloni and that day's shelter pooch, ready for adoption.

And Annie herself (far right) along with other members of the cast, the adorable adoptable, and Berloni (center).

Next week we'll post our final installment of our interview with Bill Berloni, where we'll share more behind-the-scenes stories from Annie, and a preview of Berloni's latest adventure-the first ever play where a dog is the star!

What a great idea and we hope they all find forever homes soon. Have a wonderful Wednesday.
