Celebrity Pit Bulls!

April 23, 2013  

Dog: Stella / Guardian: Bernadette Peters

By Briana Fugitt

Actress and singer Bernadette Peters spends her spare time spreading awareness about shelter animals. Broadway Barks was founded by Bernadette and her friend Mary Tyler Moore, who wanted to focus their charitable efforts on homeless animals. Bernadette’s pit bull, Stella, was the inspiration for her children’s book, Stella is a Star, about a pit bull who believes that no one likes her. Her hope is to change perceptions of pit bulls by reaching out to young audiences and teaching children (and adults) to find out facts before passing judgment and learning about acceptance of differences. Proceeds from Bernadette’s book go toward helping animal charities.
