Betty White Works With Hunting Supply Store To Raise Money for Dogs

Betty White is helping to raise money for dogs with cancer for the Morris Animal Foundation by teaming up with a company called Orvis. That sentence alone sounds great as long as you aren’t familiar with Orvis, a store that specializes in outdoor activities such as hunting and fishing.

White is promoting a best picture contest where people submit an image of their dog. The winning image is put on the cover of Orvis’ magazine. Also, each submission helps raise money for the Morris Animal Foundation.

And while you’re on Orvis’ website, you can also buy animal friendly (read sarcastically) shooting vests, hunting knives, gun safes, waterfowl bibs, and more for all your hunting and fishing needs.

What’s the connection? While Orvis sells items to help kill wildlife, they also sell cushy dog beds, collars and other accessories for our domesticated friends. We’re all for helping to cure canine cancer, but we’re quite surprised that Betty White is working with a hunting and fishing retailer. Quite a strange and contradictory partnership for an animal advocate like the lovable comedian and actress.

What do you think? Worth it to help dogs? Or bad move for an animal lover no matter who it helps?

If you’re mourning Sudan the rhino, go vegan

The world needs more vegans because more than dollars or pledges or sad-emoji riddled posts, our individual efforts can stop the demand for horns, for zoos, for animal flesh, and for the exploitation of any living being.

Criticize veganism, but don’t discredit it

Oppressive and harmful behaviour has no place in a movement rooted in anti-oppression.
