Rachael Ray has an extra $25,000 she has to give away to charity this season, and she wants you to help her decide who should get it.
The talk show host and animal lover recently launched pet food brand Nutrish to give consumers healthy and natural products for their dogs, but Nutrish has a second goal: to help homeless pets.
As the year winds down, and there are still funds left for Rachael Ray and Nutrish to donate, they have partnered with PEOPLEPets.com to launch Click the Cutest: Rachael Ray’s Shelter Helpers.
Do you want to help your favorite animal rescue organization? Here’s how: Starting now, we want all parents of rescue pets to upload their cutest photos of their furballs.
From Dec. 19-23, come back to PEOPLEPets.com to see if your pet has been selected as one of the finalists, and vote to click on which pet is the cutest. (New finalists will be added daily, so be sure to check back every day!) The owners of the three pets with the most clicks, or votes, will decide where Rachael’s $25,000 will go.
