Pet lovers cruise

Don’t miss the boat on this summer’s most fabulous animal rescue benefit — a luxury Mega Yacht Cruise aboard the Atlantis, departing from the North Cove Marina at the World Financial Center, June 4.

There will be a Dock n’ Party from 6:30−9 p.m. and the Harbor Cruise, to benefit the Friends of Animal Rescue and Brooklyn Animal Foster Network to help save homeless animals, will be from 9−10 p.m. Homeless pet adoptions will take place on the pier.

Free food will be provided by Sahara Restaurant, desserts by Michael Allen, complimentary wines by Les Compagnons. beer by Heineken, and music by Mark Cooper of Oblivious. There will be dancing, too.

Additionally, there will be special guests (think “The Sopranos”), and DJ Arissona will spin hits from the ’70s and today.

A number of “must have” items will be up for bidding in a silent auction, too, including a North Fork weekend in wine country, dinner at the “impossible−to−get−into” Rao’s Restaurant; Rachel Ray and Larry King autographed items; and dinner for four at celebrity fave Swifty’s Restaurant.

Tickets are going fast so jump on board. Sorry, no pets on board — ship rules. A prepaid donation is $100, and at the gangplank is $120. The cruise is limited to 350 people.
