Sunny, an adorable beige shelter mutt, will play Sandy in the fall revival of “Annie,” beginning previews at the Palace Theatre on Oct. 3.
Mutt who had 'only 48 hours to live' plucked from Houston kill shelter for stardom in Broadway revival
Sunny the dog introduced on 'Today' show was a stray scheduled to be put to sleep in an animal shelter in Houston when 'Annie' crew stepped in
Every dog has his day. And while Sunny’s story is unique, it has something in common with every other pooch who played Sandy on Broadway. All were shelter pups.
To support animal adoption and to help hounds have a less hard-knock life, Pedigree, the dog-food company, has teamed with “Annie.”
For each ticket to the show sold through the end of next year, Pedigree will donate $2, up to $1 million for a fund dedicated to helping dogs find homes.
