RACHAEL RAY DONATES A WHOPPING $775,000 TO ANIMAL SHELTERS ACROSS AMERICA

Rachael RayRACHAEL Ray is one generous domestic diva!

The TV chef is donating 100 percent of proceeds from her Nutrish and Just 6 pet food and treat lines to animal shelters nationwide, giving away a total of $775,000 before Dec. 31.

“If you want to look at the state of humans, you should look at the state of animals first,” Ray told People magazine.

“People are choosing whether or not they can feed an animal and their family. And every shelter coast-to-coast is stuffed.

“We only give to no-kill shelters. But we give to small and large; no one’s excluded. We want to keep as many animals alive as possible.”

Ray, mom to pit bull pup Isaboo, started her charitable giving in 2008 as a way to help all the animals she couldn’t physically save.

“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,” she says. “It’s us trying to problem-solve that very discussion, ‘Why can’t we do more?’ ”

“When you’re out grocery shopping for your family, maybe you can put a can of cat or dog food in your cart and bring it to an animal relief center,” she adds.

“Maybe you can take your kids by [a shelter] and have them donate something basic. If you can give one or two dollars, or even 10 dollars, to charity, it’s a great step.”
