Adding to the list of projects she’s got her hands in, Rachael Ray is debuting a line of dog food, with proceeds going to fund her charity “Rachael’s Rescue”. The recipes for the Nutrish for Pets line are taken from those Rachael has created for her pit bull, Isaboo. Other pet food and treat recipes are also featured in her magazine, Everyday with Rachael Ray.

The website for Rachael’s Rescue has lots of good information, a “Pet Lover’s” blog featuring recipes you can make at home for your furry friends, as well as “Are you ready for a pet?” and tips on common household items that can be toxic to your pets. There are also links to featured organizations like North Shore Animal League America and Bad Rap.
As a pet lover and dog owner, this actually looks like a pretty awesome venture on Rachael Ray’s part. I do have to wonder how much this line of dog food is going to cost, seeing as my Rottweiler eats through a fifty pound bag of dog food in about two weeks. Knowing I’m helping a good cause would probably make it worth the extra cost. Don’t worry, cat owners, there are plans in the works for a line of cat food to follow soon!
