Animal lover, chef, and tv host Rachael Ray donated $10,000 to a couple in New York that care for senior dogs.

In partnership with a pet insurance company, Ray donated to the rescue organization the Mr. Mo Project to support the couple’s work. Mariesa and Chris Hughes, the couple behind the Mr. Mo Project, have 20 dogs of their own and 106 senior dogs in foster homes.

The project is named for their beloved older pit bull, Moses. “He was such a special dog and he just melted into our hearts and our home,” Mariesa said of Moses on the Rachael Ray Show. “We did all sorts of acupuncture, herbs and oils and love until he passed away five weeks later.”

The couple keeps more difficult cases at home and pays for the medical expenses for the dogs in various foster homes. The costs can be up to $45,000 a month, Chris told Ray on the show, “We cover those dogs financially for the rest of their lives. By taking care of the medical and the financial side, that opened up so many homes and we’ve been incredibly blessed to find the foster homes we have.”
