Honoring the legacy of Betty White

To live a life that is so good that when she died at the age of 99 people say she left this life too early. That is a great life.

Betty White was an animal activist and people are asking us to honor her on Jan. 17, the day she would have been 100 years old. The Betty White Challenge is asking everyone to honor her name and legacy by donating only $5 to any local animal rescue or shelter in her name on the 17th.

As the owner of two Jack Russell rescues I know they had a very rough life and their love and loyalty makes it worth all the work. Our shelters and rescues are always in need of resources. Please consider joining this worthwhile challenge to make history and honor the legacy of a wonderful person.
