Thomasville-- Animal lovers in Thomasville have a unique opportunity this weekend.   Bill Berloni is one of the top animal trainers on broadway. Thirty years ago he trained the original Sandy for the show "Annie".  Right now, he's working with the chihuahuas in "Legally Blonde: The Musical".

All of the animals he trains for broadway shows are adopted from shelters.  "I'm just a regular person who adopted a dog 30 years ago that changed my life. I'm not the dog whisperer I don't have psychic powers I just was kind to an animal and it came back around and gave me a life that I love," said Berloni.

He will speak at the Thomasville-Thomas County Humane Society's annual benefit Saturday night. It will include a silent auction to raise money for the shelter.
