GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) - Monday, Jan. 17 was set to be the 100th birthday for Betty White, but the famous actress passed away a few weeks shy of her birthday on Dec. 31, 2021.

It’s no secret Betty White was an animal lover, so her fans encouraged others to donate to animal shelters across the country. Community members in the Grand Valley responded to the call, one recipient of those donations was the Roice-Hurst Humane Society in Grand Junction.

The animal shelter received over $2,500 from donors in honor of Betty White’s birthday and the legacy she left behind.
