Betty White has been friends with countless animals throughout her legendary life and is now living this legacy.
A new problem inspired by the evening comedy character is now spreading on social media.
The so-called “Betti White Challenge” is a virtual event that will take place on January 17 (this would be the 100th anniversary of the actress). The event asks fans to save the animals or donate $ 5 to shelters named after him.

He was a devoted animal lover who worked at the Los Angeles Zoo to save endangered species and improve conditions.
White died Dec. 31 at the age of 99. Matt Bershadker, president of the nonprofit ASPCA, expressed his grief over his death.
According to her, “Betty White is committed to helping animals in need, including support for local shelters and animal welfare, and vigorously promoting animal interests in her entertainment projects. and demonstrated a lifelong commitment to protecting and personally adopting many rescued animals. ”
He added: “Betty has been a constant and compassionate protector of vulnerable animals across the country and misses her very much.”
Tom Jacobson, president of the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association, once again commented. “It simply came to our notice then [the zoo] covers more than fifty years, and we are grateful for his enduring friendship, his lifelong protection of animals, and his tireless dedication to supporting our mission, ”he said.
The star of the Mary Tyler Moore show even wrote a book in 2011 about her passion for animals, Betty and Friends: My Life at the Zoo.
He has also been a great help to the Columbus Zoo and Aquarium. In 2014, the entrance to the zoo’s “Heart of Africa” exhibition was named Betty White Way.
“Kids grow up to be human, so I love animals more than humans,” he once told Entertainment Tonight. “I love animals more than people. It’s very simple.”
