October 28, 2010 (Port Washington, NY) – North Shore Animal League America – the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization – will roll out the “Green Carpet” to celebrities and their pets for the Fifth Annual DogCatemy Celebrity Gala. The event, hosted by comedienne Sandra Bernhard, with a performance from multi-platinum recording artist Deborah Cox, will be held at Cipriani's Wall Street in New York City on Thursday, November 4th at 6 pm.

The Gala reflects North Shore Animal League America’s belief in the unique and loving bond between pets and their owners. The evening was created to celebrate this love, and to give thanks to the people and organizations dedicated to saving the lives of shelter animals and finding them loving, permanent homes.

Each year, artists and newsmakers create videos starring their beloved animals for this Hollywood-style award show. The categories for this year’s awards include: Best Pawformance, Best In Show, Best Tail Waggin Flick, and Best Dogumentary.
