Betty White Wildlife Rapid Response Fund

Betty White Promises to Match $25K in Donations to
Morris Animal Foundation for Wildlife

Responding with Research Today to Help Wildlife Thrive Tomorrow

The oil of a British Petroleum underwater well in the Gulf threatens to profoundly affect endangered species like the resident sperm whales, brown pelicans, sea otters and turtles who call the area home. In addition to the challenge of rescuing animals affected by the spill, wildlife veterinary scientists will need to work quickly to establish research studies geared toward understanding the long-term effects the oil dispersal will have on the native wildlife for years to come.  

Introducing the Betty White Wildlife Rapid Response Fund

The Betty White Wildlife Rapid Response Fund gives wildlife researchers timely monetary aid to respond to unexpected events—such as natural disasters and emerging diseases—that result in the immediate need for animal health research. These grants, in amounts between $5,000 and $50,000, enable wildlife researchers and veterinarians worldwide to respond quickly to disease outbreaks and other potentially devastating wildlife health issues.

The fund honors actress, animal lover and longtime MAF trustee Betty White—who will match up to $25,000 to all donations made—for her dedication to wildlife health.

The research done today can help wildlife survive and even thrive tomorrow. Any amount you give helps to provide for a healthier future for animals. We thank you!
