Help Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® donate $250,000 to benefit shelter pets! You could win a year of Nutrish for your Pets!

Rachael Ray Nutrish has sponsored this post, but all opinions are my own.


  • Grand Prize$25,000 and a one-year supply of Nutrish® dry dog food or one year worth of Nutrish® dry cat.
  • THREE (3) First Prizes: $5,000 and a one-year supply of Nutrish® dry dog food or one year worth of Nutrish® dry cat.

Many of you know that I am not a Shelter dog. I was not adopted. That doesn’t mean that I don’t want to help EVERY SINGLE ANIMAL who is in a Shelter find a furever home. My kitty brother, Cody, was adopted. My “bonus” human “sister” manages a local animal shelter here in Michigan and she has adopted many of the animals she has helped care for.

I have been eating Nutrish since 2008, and I have been an Ambassadog for Nutrish for approximately four years. Mom and I are EXTREMELY proud to represent a company, that not only has delicious food that is good for me, but we are proud to represent a company where the owner, (Rachael Ray), not only “talks the talk”, she “walks the walk” when it comes to her dedication to helping animals.

For those who are regular readers of my blog you know that Rachael Ray created:Rachael’s Rescue® which was created for all of the forgotten pets – the ones who might not have someone who loves them as much as they deserve. A portion of proceeds from each sale of Nutrish is donated to The Rachael Ray Foundation,
which helps animals in need through Rachael’s Rescue. Through September 2017,
Rachael’s Rescue has donated more than $21 million dollars to pet charities and
other organizations that do good for animals. The funds are used for food,
medical supplies, treatments, and more for animals in need. Many more animals
around the country need help, and through Rachael’s Rescue, together we can make
a difference in the lives of many four-legged friends.

Because there are so many more animals who need help, Rachael Ray has created a new campaign that will run throughout the month of October.

The Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® Furever Home™  Campaign is Helping Shelter Pets Find The Home They Deserve!

Rachael Ray Nutrish is donating $250,000 during the month of October to help shelter pets in need!!

Cash donation will be made in equal amounts to 3 organizations:

  1. Big Dog Ranch Rescue :Big Dog Ranch Rescue is the largest no-kill dog rescue in the Southeastern United States.
  2. ASPCA: American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®(American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals®: We have featured the ASPCA numerous times on Dakota’s blog and are honored and happy to do so. The ASPCA is a national leader in the areas of rescue, adoption and welfare and has worked tirelessly for over 150 years to put an end to animal abuse and neglect.
  3. North Shore Animal League:  North Shore Animal League is the world’s largest no-kill animal rescue and adoption organization.

      About Rachael Ray Nutrish: In 2007, with help from pet nutrition experts, Rachael Ray created Nutrish super-premium food and treats for dogs inspired by recipes from her own kitchen. In 2014, we were very excited to grow the brand into the world of cat food. Whether intended for dogs or cats, Nutrish recipes are made with simple, wholesome ingredients like real meat or fish, and do not contain poultry by-product meal or fillers.

  8. People have a love/hate relationship with Rachel Ray, I personally like her! I used to watch 30-minute meals ALL THE TIME and honestly, I am so impressed with how much she has GROWN and built an empire, she is a businesswoman I’d like to meet and pick her brain FOR SURE!!

    • Dakota says:

      OMG I am totally obsessed with her and have been since the 30 Minute Meal Days like you……….I have so many of her cookbooks, mags, her cookware………… dog literally grew up with her food. He started eating it when he was about a year old and he is 10 years old now. That’s the only dog food he eats, he ate it before he was ever an Ambassadog!! He would be eating it even if he wasn’t an Ambassadog!! I would love to sit down with her too and chat, but I would be star-struck lol
