In honor of Betty White, award-winning animal advocate Jill Rappaport is partnering with the ARF to shine a light on seniors like no other shelter has ever done before.

“This is truly the most aggressive and sincere effort to ensure that older pets have forever homes! These older pets are unfortunately always the last to have homes, if at all. So this what the ARF does is truly a blessing. And linking that with the loved one Betty White, is a match made in salvage heaven!” Jill Rappaport.

“Senior pets in shelters have so much love to give, and we hope Betty White would be proud of our efforts to return these animals to the homes they deserve,” says Scott Howe, ARF Executive Director and CEO.

Matt Bershadker, the President and CEO of the ASPCA declares:

At Betty White’s lifelong commitment to helping animals in need continues to inspire us all, and we proudly support a longtime animal advocate Jill Rappaport and Animal Rescue Fund’s campaign to remove adoption fees for senior pets, which bring love and loyalty to families in unique and meaningful ways… It’s a wonderful way to extend the legacy of compassion to help even more vulnerable dogs and cats find safety in loving homes. “
