Griffin Pond Animal Shelter, Clarks Summit, is proud to announce they received over $20,000 in monetary donations from the public in support of its recent Betty White Challenge. As Northeastern Pennsylvania’s largest no-kill animal shelter, Griffin Pond was grateful to join the grassroots effort to raise funds to honor the beloved American and entertainment icon on what would have been her 100th birthday.
The digital campaign, which took place from Friday, Jan. 14, through Monday, Jan. 17—Ms. White’s birthday—included social media posts of photos and biographies of their adoptable animals along with insights White offered throughout her life about her love of animals and life. The campaign also included a coordinated email and mobile message blast encouraging friends to contribute via the shelter’s website or mail in Ms. White’s name to support the care of the more than 200 animals at Griffin Pond Animal Shelter.
All proceeds will be used to replenish the shelter medical account with an emphasis on supporting its spay/neuter program—a cause White advocated for as a champion of animal welfare.
