The Office’s Jenna Fischer played host Sunday evening for the first annual “Fur Ball” in Los Angeles. The event was held to celebrate 10 years for the non-profit Kitten Rescue and the more than 9,000 lives they’ve helped save. Celebrity guests included Emily Deschanel (Bones), Wendi McLendon-Covey (Reno 911), Daniela Sea (The L Word) and Kent King (General Hospital). One of my new favorite television actresses, Tricia Helfer (Burn Notice), received the Kitten Rescue Advocacy Award.

Fischer said that her love for cats is very similar to that of a character from The Office. “In the show, Angela has all these elaborate procedures for her cat. I’ve done all that – the eye drops and ear swabs. I’ve checked their poop and massaged their tummy.” said Fischer, who has fostered 9 cats.

All of the money raised from the Fur Ball will go directly to Kitten Rescue — whose larger goal is to help the city of Los Angeles become a no-kill city. For more information, please visit their official site here. Check out the gallery below for additional snaps.
