Local Humane Society Taking Part In The #BettyWhiteChallenge

KAWARTHA LAKES-The Humane Society of Kawartha Lakes is taking part in the #BettyWhiteChallenge.

Betty White passed away on December 31,2021 at the age of 99. She is best known for her role as Rose Nylund from the television series The Golden Girls, was a huge animal advocate and her fans are encouraging everyone to honour her life and love of animals.

January 17 would have been Betty White’s 100th birthday. On this day, the Humane Society of Kawartha Lakes will be participating in the #BettyWhiteChallenge, where the public and Betty White fans alike are asked to make a donation to a local Humane Society or any animal related charity they would like to support.

“We’re happy to keep such an active animal lovers memory alive by participating in this challenge. Betty White did so much for animals, we’d like to continue to promote her passion and kindness,” says Henny Venus, Executive Director of the Humane Society of Kawartha Lakes. “Making a donation goes a long way in helping us to care for every animal that comes through our doors.”

All proceeds raised from the #BettyWhiteChallenge, will benefit HSKL’s Marj Owen Spay/Neuter fund. Donors do have the option to direct their gift to any fund they would like, a list of which can be found at hskl.ca

HSKL relies on donations for the majority of its operational costs. The shelter does not receive any ongoing funding from the City of Kawartha Lakes or from any level of government.
