Happy Birthday, Betty White!
Since 1974, Betty has sat on the board of directors at the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association. In April 2008 alone, she donated nearly $100,000 to the zoo. In between her jam-packed schedule, she still finds time to actively stand up for animal rights. She has served as a trustee with the Morris Animal Foundation and is an advocate for animal health and welfare. White even turned down the role as Helen Hunt’s mother in As Good As It Gets because she disagreed with the treatment of the dog in a scene.
