2021 Grant Recipients

Congratulations to the following network partners for receiving a 2021 Rachael Ray No-Kill Excellence Grant, or a Rachel Ray Save Them All Grant. Our selection committee was presented with many exceptional projects to review, and 87 of those were chosen to be funded. From utilizing their own resources to help others around them, to working hard to improve their own lifesaving efforts - the recipients display the spirit and hope in which these grants stand for. Many projects that were chosen focus efforts on cats, transfers, mentorships, and intake prevention. These are all factors that, as an organization, we’ve identified as strategic priorities for 2025. We are excited to be able to offer this significant opportunity to these recipients and look forward to the impact that these projects will have on saving even more lives.
