    Editor: Normally CNP stays away from publishing articles on similar topics two days in a row. But in this case I said, Oh, hell, yes. So here is the second article on Betty White in two days, and I suggest just like Anna Hessel, let’s all try to be more like Betty. *Please consider donating to your local no kill shelter in the name of Betty White.

    “Be Like Betty”

    By Anna Hessel

    The Great Betty White

    The world remembers the legendary Betty White with awe, honor, and respect. Those that knew her personally recognized she treated everyone with equal importance and kindness. We often recall the “Golden Girls” theme song, “Thank You For Being A Friend”, when thinking of Betty. She was a friend to all, especially God’s furry creatures.

    Lover Of All Big And Small

    She is quoted as saying, “When I am around animals, I don’t pay attention to people”. Her parents were animal lovers, also, so Betty grew up visiting zoos on a regular basis. Animal rights organizations have been flooded with donations on what would have been her 100th birthday, January 17th. She was a champion of other liberal causes, as well. Also on her birthday, a Google search of Ms. White’s name unlocked rose petals fluttering down the page and a message saying, “Thank you for being a friend”.

    A Television Pioneer

    Ms. White was a pioneer of women in television, the first female to produce a situation comedy, “Life With Elizabeth”. In the opening of NBC’s “The Betty White Show”, which aired in 1954, Ms. White sang the Rodgers and Hammerstein classic song from “The King and I”, “Getting to Know You”. She played various characters – naughty Sue Ann Nivens, The Happy Homemaker on “The Mary Tyler Moore Show”, had the title role in “The Betty White Show”, but is remembered most as the loveable, storytelling Rose Nyland on the cult classic “Golden Girls”.

    Editor: Betty White would have been 100 years old today, January 17, 2022. One of the most important aspects of her life was her commitment to Animal Rights.

    By MAHINROOP PM

    Animal Advocate

    (Video) Betty White Archive Interview Excerpt

    Betty White, the iconic American actress, comedienne, singer and legendary TV personality left us on December 31, 2021, just seventeen days before her one hundredth birthday. America’s ‘golden girl’ will be missed, like few other celebrities. Betty was not only a pioneer in show business, but she was a pioneer animal rights activist, too. She was a compassionate advocate for animal protection and animal rights, throughout her long life. For decades Betty White has been known for her generosity; giving to animal rights causes, zoos, and foundations across the country. It was Betty White who stepped up and paid for the plane to relocate penguins and sea otters being evacuated from the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. I believe Betty would want to be remembered for her work as conservationist and devoted animal lover, as much as she would want to be remembered for her celebrated 80 years in show business.

    Expanding Activism

    Betty White worked tirelessly for more than 50 years with the Greater Los Angeles Zoo Association. In a public statement, the GLAZA remembers “her service, her enduring friendship, her lifelong advocacy for animals, and her dedication to supporting our mission. ” The star deeply cared for all living creatures and her demise will leave a huge hole in animal protection endeavors. As White’s fame grew she expanded her animal activism. One of her most beloved charities was The Seeing Eye in New Jersey, one of the country’s oldest guide dog schools.
