Thank you, Rachel Ray, for caring and leading.

Last edited Sun Nov 18, 2012, 08:05 PM - Edit history (1)

She gave the ASPCA a $500,000 grant to fund shelters for pets displaced by Sandy.

She has lent her name to a line of dog food and it is in the name of/as a result of that connection that she did this. I don't care if she gets some good publicity out of it. The fact is, she did it.

edit to change "SPCA" to "ASPCA" as reported in the linked story

1. Thanks for pointing this out. I guess I'll buy a magazine or two of hers

in appreciation.

I don't care one whit that she gets positive PR for this - these animals now have shelter. Bless her for her generosity.

I often wish that I had significant money so that I could give to the causes that matter to me.

18. From the linked story in the OP: It is the ASPCA, not SPCA as I said in my OP.

I have edited the OP to make that clear.

19. The organization in your link is NOT the same organization as the ASPCA!!!

Rachael Ray is donating to the ASPCA, not SPCA International. Please read this:

http://charitywatch.org/articles/SPCAInternational.html

...."While SPCAI is in no way connected to the better known American Society to Prevent Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), it is easy to see how its familiar sounding name might confuse donors into thinking it is somehow affiliated with this or other well-established charities with similar cruelty prevention causes...."

27. I saw that.

I was stuck at the auto dealership waiting for my car. We like Rachel Ray around here, since she's local, but that was hard to watch.

25. I buy her dog food for our dogs

It is very good dog food with meat the first ingredient - there is no fillers or shit in it

Get it at Safeway, she has three kinds, my dogs love it, and a portion of the purchase price goes to animal welfare
