It was the night before Thanksgiving, and Rachael Ray was in her New York apartment with her husband and their three dogs.
“We got out of bed, put our dogs to bed, and I had the biggest turkey of my life,” Ray said.
But she says that night was no picnic.
The night before, her husband had been out of town and left her alone to go to the mall.
When she returned home, she found him gone, and he hadn’t come home at all.
Ray thought he had just dropped off a phone call to a friend, so she called the cops.
They arrested Ray and her husband, and then a search warrant was obtained for Ray’s home.
They found more than 50 packages of dogs’ food, toys, clothes, and other personal items in her home.
Ray says she had left the dogs’ owners alone with their cats and dogs when she left her apartment.
Ray was eventually charged with animal cruelty, and she says she spent nearly two weeks in jail before being released.
“The police came and came and brought me home and brought all of these dogs home,” she said.
“They left my dogs alone, left my cats alone.
I didn’t know what to do, so I called my husband and said, ‘I’m going to call the cops and get this dog back.'”
Ray’s case eventually led to the adoption of a rescue dog that Ray now calls her “Rachael,” and the rescue is helping Ray out with her life.
The rescue, called “The Ray,” is based in Virginia and is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit that raises money for other dogs.
Its mission is to rescue dogs who need homes and then to help them live in loving and safe environments, and Ray says the “Ray” is doing a great job with that.
“It’s kind of like a little kid’s toy,” she says.
“She’s happy, she’s safe, she has her own litter, and we’re happy to have her.
She’s the only dog in the world that’s been adopted.”
Rachachael, a rescued dog, lives with her owners at the Ray rescue.
Her owners are Rachay, right, and her new boyfriend, who is called Michael.
“I was kind of nervous because she was a rescued, and they took her from a shelter, and there’s a lot of people who can’t even touch a dog,” Ray explained.
“And I was worried that she’d go back to the shelter and die.”
When she was released from jail, Rachal said she wanted to keep her pets, but she was concerned about the health of the animals and what would happen to the litter if she didn’t keep them.
She had two dogs at the time, but both of them are now too old for adoption.
“As soon as I got out I started to worry about how she would look when she grew up,” she explained.
Ray has started a GoFundMe page to raise money for “Rackley,” which has raised more than $2,500 so far.
Ray, who has been diagnosed with Multiple Sclerosis, is currently working on getting her disability check waived and getting her medical license to be an animal welfare worker.
Ray said she hopes to continue to raise awareness for other animals who need to be adopted.
“People are like, ‘Well, if it’s a dog, then they’re gonna love it, right?'” she said, laughing.
“If you’re not going to love it or care about it, why should you have a dog?
I’m not a dog.” “
When I see people saying, ‘Oh, this is a dog’s toy, it’s their little toy,’ that’s like, I’m like, what?
I’m not a dog.”
