DAWS benefits from Betty White Challenge, will name kennel for late star

The late Betty White was a tireless lifetime advocate for animals.  On Monday, fans donated to animal welfare charities and shelters as part of what’s been dubbed the #BettyWhiteChallenge.  The idea was to donate $5 to a local animal rescue organization in White’s name on what would have been her 100th birthday.  Danbury Animal Welfare Society, DAWS, raised over $20,000.  Over 500 donors, more than Giving Tuesday or any other giving marathons in DAWS history, contributed.  The average gift was around $40.  As a result, DAWS plans to name a new kennel after Betty White in their renovated and modern state of the art shelter.  Until January 31st, DAWS says all adult dog and cat adoptions are $100 off to help clear the shelter as they get ready for their renovation.
