It’s Broadway Barks time y’all! And you know what the purpose of Broadway Barks is, right? To raise awareness of the plight of small, adorable creatures who need love: Broadway actors. No! Wait… Puppies. Puppies and kittens that need loving homes.
This means that one Saturday in summer time—July 14th, this year—we Broadway folk gather in Shubert Alley to ogle and coo and sigh as some really adorable people (actors) cuddle some small, adorable creatures (puppies) on stage. And it’s all for a good cause, to boot!
In honor of Broadway Barks, we assembled a huge bunch of photos of cute things being held by cute people. Sadly, though, none of these adorable people are up for adoption.

Just when you thought Hugh couldn’t possibly be more attractive, he put on some dad jeans and picked up his baby daughter. Boom.
Because just cuddling a puppy would be too banal for President Sexypants Vampire Hunter, Ben Walker is cradling a koala. As you do.
