Thank you Betty and all of our community!

January 31, 2022
I would like to personally thank everyone who donated in honor of Betty White’s 100th birthday. Whether it was to Saving Grace, or another shelter, you made an impact to a life in need. What a celebration Betty must be having with all the glorious animals at the Rainbow Bridge!

The day after Ms. White’s birthday, I met this sweet girl while granting passes aboard the Saving Grace bus at one of our animal control partners. It only took one look into those soulful eyes to know we had to call her Betty! Like many dogs, she was overwhelmed and fearful but had the slightest tail wag that just got faster with human touch. A non-descriptive, unwanted mix breed with medical needs, she is not currently missed by anyone, but I see her potential, not only for a life of love, but to become a very special part of someone’s life. Betty has clearly lived a life of uncertainty and experienced trauma to her eye that was never treated. Working in rural shelters and animal control facilities with a population of animals that hasn’t received any prior veterinary care, this is not rare. With routine veterinary care, surgery to relieve the pain in her eye, some TLC and recovery in a foster, Betty will be ready to find a wonderful home and embark on her next chapter of life. I feel sure she will blossom with confidence and continue to share the compassion she has learned at Saving Grace with her new family for years to come. At Saving Grace, we see dogs like Betty every day. We are grateful to our supporters and community for making it possible to bring these dogs into our program, even when they need extensive care.

What a profound impact Betty White made during her lifetime! Her legacy will surely live on as funds raised in her memory will continue to bring love and hope to the human and animal lives that will be touched.
