Beltway Barks returns to The Park at CityCenterDC on Saturday, Sept. 19 from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. This cornerstone event from DC Actors for Animals is an all-star adoption event featuring favorite award winning DC actors and dozens of local adoptable animals!
The mission of DC Actors for Animals is to help animals in the Washington. D.C., metropolitan area through adoption, advocacy, and education.

Beltway Barks features musical performances, local vendors and presentations of adoptable animals from rescue groups throughout the area.
The event is inspired by Broadway Barks®, an organization founded by Bernadette Peters and Mary Tyler Moore to help animals in the New York City area. Lisa Carrier Baker founded DCa4a to do the same in DC.
