Animal lovers were in for a treat last Friday—The Humane Society of the United States hosted their To the Rescue! New York Gala, with a fun-filled evening to celebrate and honor the organization’s animal rescue efforts.

Following a three-course vegan dinner, live auction, and awards sesh at Cipriani 42nd St (hosted by Ali Wentworth, and honoring Jennifer and Alan Fournier and family with this year’s Compassion in Action award), guests made their way to the after party at City Winery. The attire—or at least, accessories—of the evening included animal-eared headbands that made for some pretty playful snapshots.

This year’s event was chaired by Howard Berk, and supported by HSUS’ Friends of Finn, a committee dedicated to stop puppy mills, founded by Amanda Hearst, who was also a co-chair of the event along with Georgina Bloomberg and Steven Read.

Notable attendees included Dylan Lauren, Kenny Laguna, Joan Jett, and more.
