To the Rescue! New York
Friday, November 10, 2017
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.

New York, New York 10017
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 rescue work goes beyond the Animal Rescue Team's vital efforts on the ground: we are also committed to rescuing animals and preventing cruelty by tackling the root causes through advocacy, legislation and policy reform.
Please join Event Chairs Suzy Welch and David Brownstein and the Event Leadership committee, along with Co-Hosts Georgina Bloomberg, Amanda Hearst and Stephen Read and the Humane Generation/Friends of Finn committee, 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 vegan dinner by Chloe Coscarelli.
We will honor Marisol and Rob Thomas, founders of Sidewalk Angels Foundation with The HSUS Compassion in Action Award. Known for his musical lead and as principal songwriter for Matchbox Twenty, Rob will also don his Grammy award winning hat for a special musical performance. And we are equally excited to honor MOROCCANOIL with The HSUS Corporate Consciousness Award. As a top luxury brand of cruelty-free hair and body care products, MOROCCANOIL has shown that a highly successful company can take a stand against cruelty in its manufacturing policies.
Purchase tickets and tables to the gala and after party! Suggested attire is black tie optional. To respect our purpose, we request that no furs be worn.
