SAN DIEGO — Dozens of pets are finding forever homes in honor of beloved late actress Betty White, who would have turned 100 on Monday.
the San Diego Humane Society launched a challenge to adopt 100 pets.
“We definitely came looking for a husky and found one that we really love,” said adopter Logan Wilson. “She was very nice and calm with us and she seemed to like us.”
Families gathered at the animal shelter on Sunday to bring home their perfect pet as the Humane Society scrapped animal adoption fees in honor of the late actress and lover’s birthday animals.
“We wanted to do something special to honor Betty White, who has done so much to bring attention to homeless dogs,” said Nina Thompson of the San Diego Humane Society. “So we wanted to do the same, and so by waiving adoption fees, we wanted to bring attention to all the adoptable pets we have.”
The Humane Society says the pandemic has caused a pause in neutering and neutering efforts that has led to more animals in shelters across the country, prompting them to launch the #BettyWhiteChallenge to get 100 animals adopted before what would be his 100th birthday.
Hundreds of dogs, cats and other furry friends returned home with their new families in a tribute White could be proud of.
Sunday evening, 249 animals were adopted.
