Rachael Ray Foundation
Frequently Asked Questions
It was important to Rachael that Isaboo, her beloved dog, ate as well as the rest of her family, but Rachael had a difficult time finding a food that combined good taste and nutrition. That's why Rachael teamed up with Ainsworth Pet Nutrition to develop Nutrish®. She also made sure that a portion of proceeds from each sale of Nutrish is donated to The Rachael Ray Foundation™, which helps animals in need.
Because of fluctuating ingredient costs and other aspects of the manufacturing process that are constantly changing, there is no set amount from each sale of Rachael Ray™ Nutrish® that we can say “goes to charity”. However, we can confirm that a portion of proceeds from each sale of Nutrish® is donated to The Rachael Ray Foundation™, which helps animals in need. Through May 2020, more than $48 million have been donated to animal charities and other organizations that do good for animals through The Rachael Ray Foundation and its predecessor entity.

The Rachael Ray Foundation is a private foundation fully funded by the proceeds from the sale of Rachael Ray Nutrish. The Foundation was launched to help Rachael better support the causes she cares for most such as helping animals in need. Every year, millions of animals enter shelters throughout the U.S. in need of essential care and forever homes. RRF funds organizations across the country who work to improve the lives of shelter animals and other animals in need. In addition, the Foundation makes funds available for emergency situations and disaster relief efforts where help for animals is urgently needed. So many animals around the country need help, and through The Rachael Ray Foundation, together we can make a real difference in the lives of so many four-legged friends.
