Betty White and Sir Elton John Help Dogs Live Longer, Healthier Lives

Longtime Morris Animal Foundation trustee and actress Betty White is doing more than speaking out for the animals she loves. She is funding research to help improve their lives. The actress agreed to match up to $25,000 to fund research into leptospirosis, a potentially fatal and contagious disease that affects a growing number of dogs. Sir Elton John and his Foundation recently matched Betty’s donation.

Betty along with Paul Raybould, executive vice president of MAF, attended the 18th Annual Elton John AIDS Foundation Academy Award Party at Pacific Design Center on March 7, 2010, in West Hollywood, California.
