In the musical Annie, the lead character meets and comforts a stray dog named Sandy. Every dog that’s played Sandy since Annie’s world premiere in 1976 has been a rescue.

William Berloni writes about rescuing animals and turning them into stars in his book Broadway Tails: Heartfelt Stories of Rescued Dogs Who Became Showbiz Superstars.
