Celebrate the North Shore Animal League America’s 2009 DogCatemy Celebrity Gala on November 5th, 2009 ( You and your well behaved dog can rub shoulders and paws with the rich and famous. The Gala’s Master of Ceremonies will be Geraldo Rivera. Rivera and his family visited the Animal League and they immediately fell in love with a Golden Retriever puppy. Though not a “hound dog,” the pup they adopted was affectionately named Elvis.

This “Green Carpet” event will feature a picturesque dog park theme, showcasing the amazing, larger-than-life American Dog Sculptures created by metal sculptor Dale Rogers. Proceeds of the sale of these custom-made, limited-edition sculptures will benefit the Animal League.

Seating is limited, about 400 people who will be treated to a screening of celebrity-made short films starring their pets. Awards will be presented for Best in Show, Best Tail-Waggin’ Comedy, Best Musical, Best Dogumentary and Best Pawformance.

Know that you are supporting a good cause by attending the festivities. You will be in good company, like notable celebrities Howard Stern and Beth Ostrosky, Martha Stewart, actress Bree Williamson and composer Martin Hamlisch.

DogCatemy Celebrity Gala will start at 6pm on Thursday November 4th 2009 at Cipriani Wall Street. Tickets are available on the North Shore Animal League’s site at For more information, please contact Denise Zayas at (516) 812-7209 or email:
