Local rescues to donate to in honor of #BettyWhiteChallenge

"Animals don't lie. Animals don't criticize. If animals have moody days, they handle them better than humans do." - Betty White

Jan. 17 is a very special day as we celebrate the legacy of Betty White who would have been 100 years old today! In honor of all she has done to help animals in her lifetime, the #BettyWhiteChallenge has been started to encourage everyone to donate to their favorite shelter or rescue, so we’ve compiled a list to help you out!
