Actress and animal advocate Betty White was honored today by the Morris Animal Foundation (MAF) for her part in improving the health of animals over the last 40 years.

In addition to serving as an MFA trustee since 1971 and her role as president emeritus, White has sponsored numerous animal health studies for the foundation. The actress is currently sponsoring studies involving pain management, sea otter health, leptospirosis in dogs, and blood clot prevention in cats with heart disease.

White was recently interviewed by USA Today regarding the Morris Animal Foundation Award, her love of animals, and her busy life.

During the interview, White spoke fondly of a particular elephant at the zoo. She explained, “I had my beloved elephant. I would say ‘Trunk up,’ and I’d stand on tip toes, and slap her tongue. Oh, she loved it. She thought that was the best thing that ever happened.”

When asked how she finds time to work with animals and star in movies White replied, “Well, you just have to find time to do it. My life is divided absolutely in half, half show business and half animals. They’re the two things I love to do.”

Last month Betty White was honored with a lifetime SAG Award for her career which has spanned over 60 years. The busy actress also had a starring role in a Snickers Super Bowl commercial – the most popular ad of this year’s Super Bowl according to USA Today’s Ad Meter.
