One of the biggest and most glamorous pet charity events is happening on Friday, November 22nd in new York City. It’s the 2013 Animal League America Celebrity Gala, chaired by Beth and Howard Stern, with guest of honor Rachael Ray, and a performance by Natalie Maines of the Dixie Chicks.

Money raised will go towards a new state-of-the-art Bianca’s Furry Friends Feline Adoption & Wellness Center at the North Shore Animal League, the largest no-kill shelter in the country. Felines you say…isn’t this a dog site? Yes, but at DogSpin we appreciate rescuing cats as well, AND by opening this feline center it opens up a lot more room to rescue dogs in the current shelter facility at North Shore Animal League. The feline center will be 14,000 square feet, have cage-free and outdoor surroundings, exam rooms, an adoption facility, a 24 hour nursery and a Respiratory Ward, Surgical Suite & Recovery Room. Sounds pretty amazing.

The gala event takes place at the Waldorf Astoria, with the red carpet and cocktails at 7pm, and then the program, dinner and then dancing starts at 8pm. More info and tickets at www.animalleague.org/events-news/events/animal-league-celebrity-gala.html.
