Pets — and their people — were dressed their best for the annual Whisker Whirl at International Market Square in Minneapolis, a gala to benefit the Animal Humane Society.

After walking the red carpet and being photographed by the petparazzi, hundreds of guests (of the two- and four-legged variety) mingled over hors d'oeuvres and took part in a silent auction.

All proceeds help the Animal Humane Society help animals with housing, medical treatments, education programs and more.
