When Betty White was alive she was a known animal lover. She liked to adopt as many pets as she could. When she passed away a little over two weeks before her 100th birthday, people got together to find a way to commemorate the late comedian.

On January 17th there is a movement to get as many people as possible to donate just $5 dollars to the local animal shelter under Betty White's name. The Twin Falls Animal Shetler made the announcement that if you plan on being part of the movement, you can donate online.

The Twin Falls Animal Shelter will be closed on January 17th for Martin Luther King Jr Day. That being said, they are still wanting to participate in the event and they stated that if you would like to be part of it too, you can donate online.

If you do not want to donate cash, you can always donate items. The shelter is always looking for food, kitty litter, treats, blankets, towels, toys, you name it, they need it. Those are things you can donate either before the 17th or after when they are operational. You can also do that in Betty White's name as well.

As of right now, there has been a little over $200 dollars raised for the shelter and it isn't even official yet. If you want to be part of it you can click here.
