Members of It's A Dog's Life is thanking the community for the outpouring of support.
The fostering network got on board with the Betty White challenge and has since received $4470.00 as of Tuesday morning. The challenge urges people to donate to their local animal shelters in Betty White's name.
"The good people of Kenora and surrounding area once again showed how much they care about the dogs and want to support the work we do," says Chris Madison with It's A Dog's Life.
Proceeds will go to help with food and vet costs, which Madison adds can be costly with the influx of dogs that have come into care.
Further donations are expected as they have not received the funds that are being raised from donation boxes set up at Kenora's Home Hardware, Keewatin Place and Red-River Co-Op in Dryden.
Residents are encouraged to continue to donate throughout the week at those locations or can choose to donate through etransfer at firstname.lastname@example.org. Cheques can also be mailed to Box 291, Keewatin ON, P0X1C0.
