In response to the proposed ban, Rachael used her talk show to plug the "Unexpected Pit Bull Calendar." The calendar, which was sold to benefit the New Jersey Liberty Humane Society, shows "the kid-friendly side of the often stereotyped breed."
When I visited the www.theunexpectedpitbull.com on January 8, 2007, I was greeted with this note:
Dear Friends of the Unexpected Pit Bull,
Thank you for your continued support for our calendar. We regret to announce that the 2007 The Unexpected Pit Bull Calendars are all sold out. Due in large part to our repeat customers and to the staggering response generated by the calendar’s mention on the Rachael Ray Show, the demand has far exceeded this year’s supply. We sold out in record time. We would like to thank all of our customers for their continued support and sales of the Unexpected Pit Bull Calendars.
Did you know that the Unexpected Pit Bull Calendar is comprised of a small team of animal loving volunteers? We are looking to expand our operations in the near future to keep up with the growth. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org to add your email and information to our mailing list. We will send out an announcement when we launch the 2008 The Unexpected Pit Bull Calendar. Also, we will post the 2007 calendar images in the gallery page, so be sure to visit us again in the near future.
Thank you for your support and for your love of these wonderful dogs!

It's good to hear that Rachael was able to help a cause so close to her heart. For another opinion on the issue, check out Celebrity Dog Watcher.
