Need your heart warmed? Step right up.

After all of the hurricanes that swept through the U.S. and the Caribbean this fall, so many people were left needing help -- and so many animals, too.

Which is where our big-hearted leader, Rachael, stepped in!

Through her foundation, Rachael was able to donate more than $1 million for hurricane relief -- part of which went to the North Shore Animal League America, who helped to coordinate the safe transfer of 50 dogs and cats from Puerto Rico to the U.S.

"[North Shore] took on an insurmountable job," says Rach.

But while the story is a tearjerker, there was a happy ending -- and that happy ending included a gaggle of those puppies showing up in our studio!
