The group hopes to perpetually search for properties for 100 pets before what would have been White’s 100th birthday on Monday, January 17.

SAN DIEGO COUNTY, Calif .– In honor of what would have been actress Betty White’s 100th birthday, the San Diego Humane Society will waive adoption fees for all adult pets this week, starting Tuesday.

The group hopes to perpetually search for properties for 100 pets before what would have been White’s 100th birthday on Monday, January 17. The beloved 99-year-old animal-lover TV star passed away on December 31.

This is the personal attack by the group, the #BettyWhiteProblem, which is a social media marketing campaign asking subscribers to donate White’s $ 5 donation to an animal shelter as a strategy to honor his memories on his birthday.

“Betty White was an inspiration for many reasons, and her commitment to supporting animals was certainly one of them,” said Jessica Des Lauriers, COO of the San Diego Humane Society. “We are happy to honor his legacy by waiving adoption fees and helping more animals find loving homes.”

She added that the pandemic has put an end to many sterilization and sterilization efforts, which has led to the adoption of additional animals in shelters across the country.

The San Diego Humane Society is open for walk-in adoptions from 10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Tuesday through Sunday at its campuses in Escondido, El Cajon, Oceanside, and San Diego. The adoption fees will be waived by Sunday, January 16.
