Betty White Launches ‘Bucks for Balls’ Spay and Neuter Campaign


You will do as Betty White commands. You will spay and neuter all your pets. You will buy the entire run of Golden Palace right now, for she desires it.

Betty White has joined forces with Actors and Others For Animals, a California-based non-profit dedicated to the humane treatment of animals, in an effort to curb pet overpopulation. The promotion, titled “Betty’s Bucks for Balls” encourages people to donate $1 to the organization which will go into a fund used to spay and neuter pets.

The 88-year-old actress who has been a longtime animal advocate issued the following statement on behalf of the organization:

“I am deeply flattered to say the least with all of the wonderful attention I have been receiving lately. It certainly makes me feel like one lucky old broad!

But you know who isn’t so lucky? All the beautiful and innocent animals who are killed every day because there aren’t enough homes. That’s why having your pets spayed or neutered is so very important. It stops the breeding cycle, helps eliminate the birth of unwanted animals and provides health benefits to boot!

Since its inception I have been a member and supporter of the animal welfare organization, Actors and Others for Animals, and am pleased to serve on their Board of Directors. They are guided by a mission to end the tragedy of pet overpopulation through financially subsidizing spay and neuter surgeries for pet guardians in need.

Please join together with me and my dear friends at Actors and Others for Animals to stop pet overpopulation.”
