Celebrity chef Rachael Ray is donating all the proceeds from her pet food lines to animal shelters this holiday season.
“If you want to look at the state of humans, you should look at the state of animals first,” Ray told People.com. “People are choosing whether or not they can feed an animal and their family. And every shelter coast-to-coast is stuffed.”
100% of proceeds from Rachael’s Nutish and Just 6 pet foods will go to animal shelters across the US, amounting to $775,000.
“We only give to no-kill shelters,” she says. "But we give to small and large; no one’s excluded. We want to keep as many animals alive as possible. My husband and I can sleep at night knowing that our small space is probably wrong for a lot of animals, but we can maybe inspire people [who have space] to bring a lot of animals home. It’s us trying to problem-solve that very discussion, ‘Why can’t we do more?’ "
