Betty White says pet overpopulation is not a laughing matter
HollywoodNews.com: Betty White may be your new favorite guest member on SNL, but the actress isn’t all just giggles. It turns out she also has a soft side for animals.
The following statement was issued by Betty White on behalf of Actors and Others for Animals today:
I am deeply flattered to say the least with all of the wonderful attention I have been receiving lately. It certainly makes me feel like one lucky old broad!
But you know who isn’t so lucky? All the beautiful and innocent animals who are killed every day because there aren’t enough homes. That’s why having your pets spayed or neutered is so very important. It stops the breeding cycle, helps eliminate the birth of unwanted animals and provides health benefits to boot!
Since its inception I have been a member and supporter of the animal welfare organization, Actors and Others for Animals, and am pleased to serve on their Board of Directors. They are guided by a mission to end the tragedy of pet overpopulation through financially subsidizing spay and neuter surgeries for pet guardians in need.
Please join together with me and my dear friends at Actors and Others for Animals to stop pet overpopulation. If all of you wonderful people out there who have made me so popular on Facebook would send in just $1.00 each, next year when Actors and Others will be observing their 40th Anniversary, they will use those funds to celebrate by sterilizing as many pets as possible for free with a promotion dubbed “Betty’s Bucks for Balls Spay/Neuter Campaign.”
So to all of my old and new fans who have enriched my life so much with all of your love and encouragement, won’t you please join with me in a life-saving campaign to help all of the pets who share our homes and our hearts.
