DC area theaters who provide awesome entertainment for our event.

Beltway Barks

Our annual adoption event, Beltway Barks, was inspired by annual Broadway Barks® adoption event, which is in its 20th year. We have fabulous performances from some of DC’s favorite and award winning theater performers! Dozens of nonprofit organizations and retail vendors will be on hand, and a raffle will feature theatre tickets to the hottest shows in the DC Metro area, as well as gift baskets and merchandise from local retailers. And of course, the stars of the show are the animals!

“I am thrilled to see the BROADWAY BARKS® tradition spread to Washington DC with… Beltway Barks! Many thanks to DC Actors for Animals, Inc. for hosting this wonderful event! I am so excited to see so many talented actors and dedicated animal lovers come together to help homeless animals. The Beltway Barks event will inform Washingtonians about the plight of the thousands of homeless dogs and cats in DC, Maryland, and Virginia and that will save lives!”
