Mary Tyler Moore and Bernadette Peters Honor SPCA International

July 13, 2009, Washington, DC – On Saturday, July 11, actresses Mary Tyler Moore and Bernadette Peters honored SPCA International at the annual “Broadway Barks” – a star-studded dog and cat adopt-a-thon in New York City hosted Broadway Cares. SPCA International’s Operation Baghdad Pups program was awarded a PEDIGREE® certificate for outstanding service and courageous efforts on behalf of U.S. service members and their pets.

Operation Baghdad Pups is a SPCA International program created to provide veterinary care, clearance, and transport for animals that U.S. service members have come to love during deployment in the Middle East. To date, SPCA International has rescued over 150 animals for service members.

Operation Baghdad Pups’ most recent rescue on June 1, 2009, was a dog named Laia, whose soldier was killed in Iraq in May as a result of wounds from a roadside bomb. Laia is now living a safe, happy, healthy life in Michigan.

SPCA International requests donations in honor of all our military heroes and the countless animal casualties of war.
