Fox will once again be helping to find shelter dogs homes with The All-Star Dog Rescue Celebration airing on Thursday, November 26, 2015 at 8pm ET/PT. Last year’s dog rescue special was successful in raising funds for the Petfinder Foundation, raising awareness of dogs in need of homes, and in generating more than 4,500 adoption applications. The first special was hosted by Jane Lynch and Hilary Swank and featured appearances by celebrities including Channing Tatum, Scarlett Johansson, Miley Cyrus, Josh Duhamel, Kristen Bell, Kristin Chenoweth, Max Greenfield, Julianne Hough, Kesha, Miranda Lambert, Queen Latifah, Cesar Millan, P!nk, LeAnn Rimes, Rebecca Romijn, Emmy Rossum, Jenna Dewan-Tatum, and Betty White.

The two-hour special will feature adoptable dogs and will also celebrate people who are dedicated to caring for animals. And, the special will once again raise funds for the nonprofit organization Petfinder Foundation which supports rescue groups and shelters.

Oscar winner Hilary Swank and Michael Levitt are back as executive producers.
