Betty’s got balls–and wants to get rid of them

May 22, 2010 by Tails Magazine in Fun Stuff with 0 Comments

A phrase like “Betty’s Bucks for Balls” conjures up all kinds of images, many of which are inappropriate for print. But check it out: The “Betty” is Betty White, “Bucks” is a synonym for money, and “Balls” refers to testicles. That’s not only fit to print, I’m 100 percent behind the idea. Money raised through the Betty’s Buck$ for Balls Spay/Neuter Campaign funds free pet sterilizations.

White launched Betty’s Bucks for Ball$ through the California non-profit group Actors and Others for Animals in what they are calling “a life-saving campaign to encourage spay and neuter of animal companions.”

Here’s how it works:  Send in $1 or more to Betty’s Bucks for Ball$. The money will be piling up throughout the year. The final tally will be revealed next year during the 40th anniversary celebration of Actors and Others for Animals, and that money will fund free spay/neuter procedures.

White wrote in a press release, “If all of you wonderful people out there who have made me so popular on Facebook would send in just $1 each….”

Well, that sent me to her Facebook page. And if her request is granted, that would mean $152,559 toward spay/neuter.

Incidentally, Betty isn’t the only celeb involved in Actors and Others for animals. Visit ActorsAndOthers.com and you’ll see other famous animal lovers like Mary Tyler Moore, Joanne Worley, and Loretta Swit.

But more importantly, once you’re on the site, click on the “Donate Your Buck Today!” button and help Actors and Others for Animals put a serious dent in pet overpopulation.
