Among the holiday havoc and a busy schedule, Rachael Ray has still found time to help animals in need this season, and she isn’t doing it alone.

For the second year in a row, Ray has started the Santa Paws campaign. Since Dec. 5th funds from the proceeds of Rachael Ray Nutrish pet food have been donated to numerous animal organizations chosen by fellow famous pet lovers. Just like last year, thousands of dollars will be donated to shelters around the world by Christmas through the Rachael Ray Foundation and Santa Paws Campaign.

Along with helping Ray find the purr-fect charitable organizations, celebrities are helping spread the word about Santa Paws in the best way possible — posting pictures of their adorable pets on social media.

Take a look at all the famous faces lining up to raise awareness about this cause and then spread the word yourself by posting a picture of your furry friend, with the hashtag #SantaPaws2016.

It all starts with @RachaelRay herself!
