It’s no secret that Rachael Ray loves her animals and helping out others. Showing her generosity the famous chef has donated $500,000 to the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals to benefit victims of Superstorm Sandy.

In addition, Ray is shipping 4 tons of her Nutrish pet food for Sandy animals and is donating $100,000 from her Yum-o! organization to City Harvest and the Food Bank for New York City.

“When you make your living in food, you have to give back in the same way,” she said.

Her big donation will be used to lease a central shelter building for animals, provide medical attention and continue the search for other pets.

Ray only wants the best for animals and said, “I hope this becomes a center of very happy endings.”

Ray isn’t the first and only celeb to help victims of Sandy. For example, Rihanna recently announced she will be donating $100,000 to the Food Bank for New York City, along with 1,000 sleeping bags to the New York Daily News’ Hurricane Sandy Relief Effort.

Other celebs like Lady Gaga donated $1 million to the American Red Cross and even the “Jersey Shore” cast is reuniting for MTV’s fundraiser “Restore the Shore” to benefit those affected.

It’s great to see so many famous faces unite to benefit those in need.
