Betty White’s Birthday Wish is Support for Morris Animal Foundation

Over the years Betty White has tickled our funny bones and touched our hearts, and now fans have a golden opportunity to tell America’s Golden Girl “thank you for being a friend” to animals by making a donation to an organization that is close to her heart.

“To help celebrate my 91st birthday on January 17, please help me raise $10,000 for Morris Animal Foundation, which will celebrate its 65th anniversary of advancing animal health this year,” said White. “Since a girl like me already has more than I could hope for, I’m asking fellow animal lovers to learn more about Morris Animal Foundation and to consider helping me make this gift to Morris Animal Foundation today.”

Betty White has worked for more than 40 years with the Morris Animal Foundation, which has invested more than $70 million toward more than 2,000 health studies for dogs, cats, horses and hundreds of wildlife species since its founding. These studies have led to significant breakthroughs in diagnostics, treatments, preventions and cures for animals. Some of the breakthroughs funded through Morris Animal Foundation have become gold standards in veterinary care.

Fans can celebrate the star who has made the world a better place with a donation, and help to make her wish go viral by spreading the word with the hashtag #happybirthdaybetty on January 17th.
