Theatrical Animals Fund!

From Broadway to Hollywood and beyond, William Berloni's Theatrical Animals are stars of many mediums.  They are beloved by many, all over the world, but  most Dorothy and Bill Berloni.    The animals, most of whom are rescued and adopted, are cared for with the highest standards of medical and emotional welfare.  From dogs to donkeys, pigs to parrots, llamas to lizards, scores of Theatrical Animals have comfortably lived and been trained by Bill Berloni over the past 40 years at their farm in Connecticut.   There are currently 25 dogs, 3 cats, 2 horses, 2 pigs, 2 geese, 1 donkey, 1 Macaw and 1 Dwarf bunny at the farm!

Living on the Berloni farm gives most of these animals a second chance.  They are rehabilitated into tip-top health, socialized, and trained . Some are then employed in the entertainment industry, and their income helps provide for some of their other furry friends on the farm; the new ones in-training, and the retired and infirmed.  They become ambassadors for rescue and rehabilitation. 

Due to the Covid-19 outbreak and the reality of current projections, these opportunities may not exist for quite a while.  Between supplies, food, supplements, medications, etc., the average total cost for the animals is roughly $10,000 per month, or $120,000 per year.    So now, they need your help!

If you can find it in your hearts to donate to their "Theatrical Animals Fund", they will be so deeply grateful.  They hope that they - and their human costars - can all get back to work together soon.  In the meantime, they send hearty thanks to all of their fans, and all the many people with whom they have worked.  They know that we will all pull through this together!   After all, it is indeed #OnlyIntermission! 

*Note: Organizers Jano Herbosch and Adam Kantor are friends and colleagues of Dorothy & William Berloni in NYC.   Adam just recently worked with their dog Sammy on "Darling Grenadine" at the Roundabout Theatre Company, which closed early due to the shut-down.   100% of funds raised here will go directly to William Berloni's Theatrical Animals in support of their COVID-19 Emergency Response Fund, for costs such as supplies, food, supplements, and medications.
