You Honored Betty White and Helped Animals in Need


You came together to celebrate the life of Betty White and honor her legacy by raising nearly $50,000 on the day that would have been her 100th birthday.

Thank You

Thank you for helping us honor the life and legacy of an extraordinary actor and humanitarian. January 17, 2022 would have been the 100th birthday of Betty White, an amazing actor, person, and advocate for animals. More than 1,000 of you came together and have now raised over $50,000 as part of the Betty White Challenge. We are blown away by how many of you wanted to celebrate her life and continue her legacy of promoting animal welfare and caring for animals in need.

Thank you to everyone who participated in #BettyWhiteChallenge!

We would like to thank Steve and Margie Holzhueter for their $2,500 matching gift that enabled so many of you to double your impact for animals in need.
