Our dear friend Betty White was a compassionate and devoted animal advocate for nearly a century. Through her 70-year support of American Humane, she volunteered her service as a member of American Humane’s board of directors, supported our “No Animals Were Harmed®” program protecting animals in film and television, served as a judge and presenter for the nationally televised American Humane Hero Dog Awards™, and served as the chair of our nationwide “Be Kind to Animals Week®,” the most successful humane education campaign and the oldest commemorative week in U.S. history.
And to cement her legacy for years to come, American Humane is launching a petition to gather 10,000 signatures which they will take to Congress to seek a national Betty White Day of recognition honoring this remarkable woman’s lifelong commitment to animals.
February 28th, 2023 – We are excited to share that we delivered over 21,000 signatures to Rep. Gus Bilirakis (R-FL) on Capitol Hill on February 28th, and he has pledged his support to bring this to the House floor soon. With unanimous approval, we can make National Betty White Day a reality! We are grateful for your help and hope you will continue to join us in honoring Betty White's mission of making the world a better place for animals. Thank you for your support! To learn more, please read our news release from February 28th.
January 17th, 2023 – 🎉 Today, in remembrance of Betty White, you rose to the call and helped us exceed our goal of 10,000 signatures.

We truly appreciate your support in cementing Betty's lifelong commitment to animal welfare.
