Entertainers Line Up Virtually to Support 30th Annual Stars to the Rescue

We once again bring a dynamic mix of talent with the 30th annual Stars to the Rescue, this time in an all-new virtual format. This year’s starstudded show features musicians and comedians from the past 29 years of Stars to the Rescue for a special reunion special, including Gloria Estefan, Luke Combs, Trace Adkins, Sammy Hagar & The Circle, Bruce Hornsby, The Doobie Brothers, and more! Tickets are on sale now for virtual access between March 11-14. Stars to the Rescue provides essential support for our lifesaving mission of People Rescuing Animals … Animals Rescuing People®. Since 1991, we have celebrated more than 44,000 adoptions and continues to provide assistance to struggling families to keep pets in loving homes and out of shelters.

“We’re thrilled to offer such a fantastic and unique lineup for the 30th anniversary special of Stars to the Rescue,” says our co-founder Tony La Russa. “It doesn’t seem like we’ve been doing this for 30 years, because each show highlights such a variety of outstanding talent. And this year’s new virtual format offers greater flexibility and means even more of each ticket sold will go directly to saving dogs and cats in need.”

Tickets may be purchased at online and virtual access options are available between Thursday, March 11 and Sunday, March 14, 2021. The 30th annual Stars to the Rescue is sponsored in part by Central Garden & Pet, Purina, Dynamic Office & Accounting Solutions, Gagen McCoy, Worldwise, AT&T, and more.
