The not-for-profit animal rescue organization, Rescue Dogs Rock NYC (RDRNYC) will held their 2nd annual gala last night at 583 Park Avenue, New York City. The cocktail and dinner reception gala raised funds and awareness to help animals in need, and was co-chaired by Georgina Bloomberg and Lara Trump.
Rescue Dogs Rock NYC’s goal is to raise awareness of the ever-growing plight of homeless animals in the United States, in shelters as well as those abandoned in the streets. There are way too many fantastic animals that are euthanized every day just because they are homeless. Rescue Dogs Rock NYC introduces these animals to the public and educates them that unwanted companion animals are not damaged goods or unworthy, but can be fostered into wonderful family pets. Sadly, the abuse, neglect, cruelty and medical cases cost shelters the most money, and often are the first animals to euthanized.
The mission of Rescue Dogs Rock NYC is the rescue of these animals and provide them with immediate emergency care, medical or otherwise, they need and deserve. Besides medical treatments, the animals are rehabilitated through trainers and behavior specialists to help overcome past trauma. The organization does not have a physical shelter, and relies on a network of volunteers, fosters and adopters to welcome these animals into their homes and provides them with a nurturing and caring environment.
Rescue Dogs Rock NYC’s outreach and education is spread through their website and social media, as well as community events such as their annual gala.
Rescue Dogs Rock NYC is a 501(c)(3), volunteer and foster based rescue. For more information, visit: rescuedogsrocknyc.org.
