Shih tzus? You’re welcome! Finally, a gala that invites fancy people and their pooches! “The Bideawee Ball: For the Love of Pets” aims to raise money for cute fuzzy creatures left homeless by Manhattan tragedies such as grumpy landlords and 18-hour days at the law firm. Caroline Kennedy presents an award to distinguished Manhattan veterinarian Dr. Lewis Berman as comely chef Rocco DiSpirito and noted Yorkie activist Cindy Adams look on. (We’ll get our own mangy mutt just as soon as we find a houseboy to watch him during the day, and while he’s at it, do our laundry!)

[Bideawee Ball, Espace at the Atelier, 635 West 42nd Street, 6:30 p.m., 516-220-4412]
