The people behind Rescue the Runway might suffocate you with the cuteness of their May 15th fundraiser. Adorable dogs will strut down a runway with celebrity escorts, posing for pictures along the way, looking for adoptive homes to take them in. That's right: if you see a cutie on the runway, they could be yours to keep! For a Tuesday afternoon cuteness escape teaser, check out some of the models in our gallery above.

Advance tickets cost $100 and are available now. Beyond the adorable runway show, attendees will also enjoy a four hour open bar, tasting stations from some great NYC restaurants, and live music. A raffle and silent auction will round out the ticket sales with all proceeds benefitting three distinct New York animal rescue groups: Animal Haven, Second Chance Resuce, and Pibbles & More Rescue. Under 30? You can score a ticket for just $75.
