This December 12th–14th, you can meet 800 fellow New Yorkers who are looking for a place to permanently crash. Some are quirky. Some are feisty. Some are scruffy. But all of them are New Yorkers just like the rest of us. Admission is FREE! All pets are spayed, neutered, vaccinated and microchipped. Along with 800 adorable pets, we’ll also have music, food and gifts for every adopter and adoptee. So come to Brooklyn Expo Center this December 12th–14th, and help find a fellow New Yorker a home for the holidays. For more info, visit: Together, We Can Save Them All.

FATES ALLIGN AT LOUIE’S LEGACY’S BLUE GALA Celebs, musicians, models, artists, community members mingle to support saving shelter animals (Staten Island, NY) Like a blue moon, the Louie’s Legacy Blue Gala is that rare, elegant occurrence where fates align and celebrities, community members, leaders and activists gather to celebrate one amazing cause: animal rescue. Louie’s Legacy is asking the community to join them for their Third Annual Blue Gala on Friday, November 21, 2014 at Nicotra’s Ballroom at The Hilton Garden Inn Staten Island, 1100 South Avenue, Staten Island, NY. Generous sponsors helping to make the Blue Gala a success for the animals are Mike Ruiz Photography, OMJ Productions and Richmond County Savings Foundation. The animal rescue’s major fundraiser of the year will be held 7 to 11 PM and will include red carpet photo opportunities, dinner, dancing and an open full bar, along with a silent auction, basket raffles, 50/50, caricature artist and photo booth. Additionally, the release of the quite literally globally anticipated “Hunks and Hounds” 2015 calendar will take place at the event, with celebrity photographer Mike Ruiz and some of the “hunks,” top fitness models in the business, on hand to sign and mug for the camera. Ruiz has also generously donated original signed prints of each of the 12 photographs which comprise this now global phenomenon. Each is a 16" x 20" exclusive, unique and valuable piece. Co-hosting the evening will be Ellie Lee of VH1's "Big Morning Buzz Live" whose twin passions are dogs and entertainment, and singer/DJ Vinnie Medugno, known as much for his philanthropy as for his music. Headlining the festivities will be Canadian disco legend France Joli, whose spectacular debut song “Come To Me” is as fresh today as it was thirty-five years ago; Angela "Big Ang" Raiola of VH1's "Mob Wives" and "Miami Monkey; New York-born Queen of Dance, Reina; Lime, the legendary synthpop group from Montreal; and singer, songwriter and activist Lori Michaels, performing her critically acclaimed song, “Unconditionally”. Founded in 2009, Louie's Legacy is a non-profit 501(c)(3), grass roots, all-breed animal rescue organization dedicated to caring for and finding adoptive homes for the dogs and cats it saves from high-kill shelters across the country. The rescue, which operates in both Cincinnati, OH and Staten Island, NY, saved over 1,100 animals in 2013, thanks to its many volunteers and transporters, fosters and adopters, sponsors and contributors. Receiving the 3rd annual True Blue Award in Volunteering will be Carol Locey of Milford, OH. For the dedicated foster mom, event planner and photographer of the rescue’s adoptable animals in Ohio, the tribute is bittersweet, as it also honors six of the seven pets she lost when her home was destroyed by fire in June. Last year’s event sold out! Tickets for the Blue Gala are $90 a person and $170 per couple, and all of the proceeds from the event go directly to the animals Louie’s Legacy rescues, rehabilitates and re-homes. The deadline for ticket purchases is November 14. To purchase tickets for the gala, please visit To make a donation to the silent auction, raffle or purchase a journal ad, please contact the rescue at The deadline for journal ad submissions is November 7, and the deadline for all other donations is November 14. #bluegala #louieslegacy #mikeruiz #hunksandhounds
