Betty White was a national treasure, and now on her 100th heavenly birthday, she sparked a national movement.  I'm sure you've seen #BettyWhiteChallenge everywhere on social media.  What does it all mean?  The idea is to donate $5 to any local or national animal shelter in Betty White’s name.  This is supposed to be the last big push since today is her birthday.  I made a list of every No-Kill animal shelter in New Jersey and linked their contact info to make it easy for you to be a part of the challenge today!

Look how many no-kill rescues we have in New Jersey...North, Central, Jersey Shore, and South are all represented.  Did I miss any?  Email me and I'll add it to the list!  We love a rescue in our Fozzie Bear and Boots the cat xo

If you can contact one of these NJ shelters with a $5 donation you will be the hero Betty dreamed you would be!  If you want to see the cutest pooches in Jersey, we have them, all submitted by YOU!
