A photo exhibition of celebrities and the pets they have rescued will open in New York on August 25.
The Rescue Paws photo exhibit is a personal celebration of incredible musicians, actors, authors, fashion designers, models and social figures who have compassionately rescued or adopted dogs instead of purchasing them from pet stores or puppy mills.
These amazing people have welcomed photographer Robbie Bellon and The Humane Society of the United States into their homes to photograph their dogs in intimate settings. Celebrities have also written personal accounts of the remarkable stories behind the rescue of their best friends.
The Rescue Paws exhibit of these photos will go on display on August 25, 2010 at a cocktail party at W Times Square with a DJ set by Josh Madden. The one-day exhibit is being staged in support of The Humane Society of the United States’ campaign to stop puppy mills.
The dogs featured in the exhibition were rescued or adopted by: Katherine Heigl, Kelly Rutherford, Josh Duhamel, Deepak Chopra, Selma Blair, Denise Richards, Cornelia Guest, John Bartlett, Sophie Theallet and many more.
The exhibition takes place at W New York – Times Square, 1567 Broadway at 47th Street, 7th Floor.
