On August 20, the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons hosted the annual Bow Wow Meow Ball.

The event honored filmmaker Katharina Otto-Bernstein for her unwavering commitment to the Animal Rescue Fund of the Hamptons and animal welfare. Theater director and visual artist Robert Wilson presenter Otto-Bernstein with the award.

The evening’s celebration of ARF’s life-saving work took place on ARF’s 22-acre campus in Wainscott. Guests enjoyed cocktails, followed by dinner catered by Glorious Food. Afterward, the party continued with dancing to music by the Peter Duchin Orchestra. Over 400  guests from New York and the Hamptons attended the magical night. All proceeds benefited ARF, a regional leader in New York for the rescue and adoption of cats and dogs.

The animals in ARF’s care come from animal control centers, puppy mill rescue efforts, and from people who can no longer care for their pets. In 2016, ARF will intake over 1,600 dogs and cats at its state-of-the-art Adoption Center. ARF provides full medical care—including spaying and neutering—to all its animals in addition to humane care for their basic needs. Once medically evaluated and socialized the dogs and cats are made available for adoption at its Adoption Center and through its mobile adoption van and offsite events held across the greater New York region. Since its inception, ARF has rescued more than 22,000 cats and dogs and placed them with loving families.
