Local animal welfare organizations raise money in honor of the late Betty White

“Homebound to the Rescue was founded when we learned that many seniors on fixed incomes had to choose between caring for their pet and putting food on their table. We knew we had to find a way to help so these seniors could keep their beloved pet who may be their sole daily companion,” said Lindsay Doray, Second Chance chief development officer.

By Monday, Worcester Animal Rescue League had also raised over $7,000 from 225 people on Facebook through their version of the “challenge.” Baypath Humane Society of Hopkinton is promoting their foster program in honor of White’s 100th birthday. White, 99, was a beloved American entertainer with a career spanning eight decades. The “Golden Girl” passed just a couple of weeks shy of her 100th birthday on Jan. 17. 

Second Chance started the fundraiser after they received donations in her name impromptu over the New Year holiday weekend. The animal welfare organization, which offers services in Worcester, East Brookfield, Springfield, North Brookfield and Southbridge, plans to use the money in a manner White would’ve approved of – aiding elderly pet owners through a program that provides free veterinary services to pets at the homes of low-income senior communities. They had raised over $3,700 as of Monday, over $3,200 on Facebook alone, through their “BettyWhiteChallenge.”
