Two-time Tony Award winner Sutton Foster will host The Humane Society of the United States’ 2018 To the Rescue! gala November 9 at Cipriani on 42nd Street.

The event supports the Humane Society’s work to rescue animals in crisis, in addition to providing for their care, placement, and re-homing when necessary.

A passionate animal advocate, Foster adopted a rescue dog named Mabel from Texas in 2014. The dachshund-terrier mix frequently appears on Foster’s instagram. Foster is also active with Broadway Barks!, the annual pet adoption event co-founded by Bernadette Peters and the late Mary Tyler Moore.

“I am excited to host the Humane Society of the United States’ gala. Animal welfare has always been a passion for me, and to help raise money for heroic efforts to save animals who would otherwise have no one to help them is truly an honor," Foster said in a statement. "I hope that our work at the gala raises funds to save thousands of additional animals in the United States and around the world.”
