HUNTSVILLE, Alabama – Betty White fans across the country come together to mourn her passing and help their local communities in the #BettyWhiteChallenge. White died on New Years Eve at the age of 99.
She was a philanthropist, especially when it came to animal rights causes. She has donated her time and resources to American Humane, the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association, and Guide Dogs for the Blind. Other causes included the Endangered Wolves Center and the BraveHearts Therapeutic Riding and Education Center.
Animal rights groups including the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA) paid tribute to White this week, praising his tireless commitment to animal welfare.
Huntsville Animal Services (HAS) called on the community to consider donating to the shelter to honor the memory of the beloved actress.
“Anytime you have a publicly revered personality like Betty White who devotes her time to these causes, it really underscores our mission to provide care and find loving homes for our animals,” said Dr. Karen Sheppard, Director of the HAS. “We are fortunate to have a community that gives, but we can never have too many volunteers or enough supplies. “
Huntsville Animal Services has a non-profit foundation for anyone wishing to donate money or supplies. Visit their website to learn more.
