Woods Humane Society honors the legacy of Betty White with a one-day donation challenge and a $100-off adoption promotion on what would have been her 100th birthday, January 17, 2022.

The iconic actress, comedian, and animal advocate passed away on December 31, 2021, at the age of 99, sparking the viral “Betty WhiteChallenge.The nationwide movement calls fans to donate $5 to an animal rescue or shelter in her name.
