2023 Grant Recipients

The Rachael Ray Foundation logo We’re proud to announce this year’s winners of the Rachael Ray No-Kill Excellence Grants and the Rachael Ray Save Them All Grants. Once again, we had many phenomenal applications to review but our selection committee eventually settled on 45 projects to fund. This year’s grant winners will be saving the lives of thousands of animals by transferring in dogs and cats from shelters, financing or facilitating spay/neuter surgeries, building out TNVR and neonatal foster programs, and providing training services to the many harder-to-adopt dogs displaying a variety of challenging behaviors. We are so excited to once again have so many partners working with us toward the goal of reaching no-kill by 2025.
