WESTPORT, Conn. – The Rescue You, Rescue Me event to support dogs in need will be held at Mitchells on Wednesday, Oct. 29 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. The event will support the Pet Animal Welfare Society (PAWS) and the Westport Animal Shelter Advocates (WASA).

The event will include a luncheon, fashion show, live and silent auctions, and rescue dogs. Hosted by world-class explorer and host of ABC's Emmy Award winning "Born to Explore" television show Richard Wiese, Rescue You, Rescue Me will honor award-winning animal advocate, best-selling author and NBC news correspondent Jill Rappaport.

PAWS, established over 50 years ago, is a nonprofit shelter dedicated to rescuing homeless animals and placing them in loving new homes. WASA is dedicated to the care and welfare of homeless dogs in Fairfield County, with its primary focus on attending to the needs of impounded dogs at Westport Animal Control.

Supporting PAWS and WASA, two no-kill shelter organizations, gives animals a second chance for better lives and finding their forever homes. All of the net proceeds from the event will go directly to both organizations.

VIP tickets are $175 and general admission tickets are $100.
