To the Rescue! New York is the signature annual benefit of the Humane Society of the United States, supporting the rescue, care, placement and potential rehoming of thousands of animals every year. It is an exceptional opportunity to help the HSUS save animal lives across the nation and around the world.
The HSUS and Humane Society International Animal Rescue Teams are in the field around the world, saving animals from puppy mills, fighting pits, hoarders, neglect and natural disasters. We respond with equipment, expertise and financial resources to assist in investigations, launch raids, collect evidence and coordinate animal seizure, care and placement. Our work goes beyond the Animal Rescue Team's vital efforts on the ground: we are also committed to preventing the root causes of cruelty through our advocacy, legislation and policy reform initiatives.
Please join hosts Jerry O'Connell and Rebecca Romijn, Event Chair Georgina Bloomberg, and the Event Leadership and Humane Generation New York committees, for a truly inspirational evening. Come together with 550 social, business and political leaders, HSUS and HSI benefactors, celebrities and the press to a cocktail reception and gourmet plant-based dinner.
Unilever will receive the Corporate Consciousness Award, MUTTS cartoonist and author Patrick L. McDonnell will receive the Voice for the Animals Award, and Alex and Elisabeth Lewyt Charitable Trust will receive the Humane Champion Award.
The evening will include a special performance by Singer-Songwriter Gavin DeGraw.
Suggested attire is black tie optional. To respect our purpose, we request that no furs be worn.
