The life of Betty White is really an inspiration for someone who’s made a lifelong commitment to helping those most at risk,” said Yolanda Berkowitz, the president and co-founder of Friends of Miami Animals, a nonprofit with the mission of saving and improving the lives of homeless pets in South Florida.

Berkowitz is pledging to match every dollar donated to her foundation, which also benefits Miami-Dade Animal Services, the recipient of many of their grants and programs. They see some 30,000 homeless dogs and cats pass through their doors every year.
