Recipients for the 2020 Rachael Ray Save Them All and No-Kill Excellence Grants

Congratulations to the following network partners for receiving a 2020 Rachael Ray Save Them All Grant or Rachael Ray No-Kill Excellence Grant. There were many truly excellent projects put forward to the selection committee, and needless to say, it was a difficult task selecting the recipients. The 49 funded projects are especially demonstrative of the spirit and hope for these grants. Whether that is a celebration of using a community's no-kill status to help others or those working hard to achieve more lifesaving, they represent significant opportunity and progress for dogs and cats in shelters. In the end, all of the chosen projects focus on three factors that, as an organization, we’ve identified as strategic priorities for 2025: big dogs, cats, and coalition-building.
