Calling all animal lovers and rock music aficionados to come support Rational Animal’s eagerly awaited third annual Gimme Shelter: Rock & Rescue NYC benefit concert.

This rocking event takes place on Monday, October 6 at the Highline Ballroom. Located at 371 West 16th Street in Manhattan’s fashionable Chelsea district.

Join honorary chairperson Debbie Harry, MCs Chi Chi Valenti and DJ Johnny Dynell, and guest hosts Beastie Boy Adrock and Gina Gershon for an evening of music and entertainment with a purpose: to raise money for animal rescue groups that are working to save lives and create brighter futures for New York City’s homeless animals.

This year’s ten beneficiary groups all are members of the Mayor’s Alliance for NYC’s Animals. They include A Cause for Paws, Adopt-A-Dog, Anjellicle Cats Rescue, Bobbi and the Strays, Linda’s Feral Cat Assistance, Loving Touch, Metropolitan Maltese Rescue, Rawhide Rescue, Spay Neuter Intervention Project (SNIP), and Tiny Treasures Rescue. The ASPCA, an Alliance founding member, is one of the event sponsors.

“Our goal at Rational Animal is to end euthanasia of healthy and treatable animals,” says Susan Brandt, Rational Animal’s founder. Gimme Shelter is a rockin’ way to spread our message, and we’re thrilled that this community of fellow artists and animal lovers have donated their time and talents to the cause.”

Wow, not only do they have an impressive musical line-up, they also have an amazing list of worthy beneficiaries. Go enjoy a fun filled evening knowing your contribution (tickets start at $50) goes to some topnotch causes.
