WATCH: Betty White Stumps for Shelter Dogs


Betty White Pedigree Foundation Through no fault of their own, more than four million dogs end up in shelters and breed rescue organizations every year, and nearly half of them never find a place to call home. The Pedigree Foundation, the philanthropic arm of PEDIGREE® brand dog food and pet nutrition, is dedicated to their mission to help those dogs by providing grants to 501(c)(3) shelters and rescue groups—and by encouraging dog adoption.

To achieve their mission to help the thousands of dogs in need find loving homes, The Pedigree Foundation recently enlisted the help of beloved actress and animal lover Betty White to help spread the word and encourage fellow animal lovers to help too. To date, The Pedigree Foundation has raised more than $5 million to help shelters and rescue groups, providing food and comfort for these dogs while they wait for their new home! Way to go Pedigree Foundation!
