We were thrilled when comedian and producer Whitney Cummings accepted our request to host our 5th annual Rescue the Runway: NYCt. Whitney is an animal welfare and Pit Bull advocate who shares our mission to give a voice to these incredible dogs. Unfortunately, Whitney’s publicity team emailed us on May 5 to share that she would no longer be able to host due to a family matter.
While we are disappointed to lose our event host a week out, we are incredibly excited to produce what has become a national animal welfare benefit for the fifth time in New York City! The official SpokesDog of our NYC 2017 event, Tater Tot, whose three-month roller coaster rescue, rehabilitation and recovery inspired thousands, reminded us that even though this will be our first production in five years without a host, it’s not what’s most important. Rescue the Runway® celebrates the compassion within our community, the people who take action to create change and the dogs who need us most, all of which will be present May 13. This is all that matters. #nohostnoproblem
