Betty White films PSA for the Pedigree Foundation's adoption drive

Betty White, animal advocate and star of the TV Land hit show Hot In Cleveland, has another lead role -- this time, the Screen Actors Guild Award winner is featured in the Pedigree Foundation's adoption drive public service announcement (PSA).

In the PSA, White says:

Hi, I’m Betty White, and this is Yogi; one of the four million beautiful dogs that end up in shelters and breed rescues every year. I’ve been an animal lover all of my life, and it breaks my heart to know that more than five thousand dogs every day need a home. So let’s help Yogi and all those other dogs in need, right now. Your donation to the Pedigree Foundation will support its mission to help dogs find loving homes. With help from dog lovers like you, we will fund grants to support thousands of shelters and breed rescues. Visit pedigreefoundation.org and make a donation. Your contribution will provide food and comfort for these dogs while they wait for a home. So please, visit pedigreefoundation.org. It’s the least we can do for our best friends, like Yogi.
