The late Betty White was a tireless advocate for animals for her entire life, from caring for homeless animals as a child to launching her own weekly TV show “The Pet Set” dedicated to her celebrity friends and their pets. Her biggest contribution, though, may be yet to come, as fans get set to donate to animal welfare charities and local shelters on Jan. 17, 2022, as part of the #BettyWhiteChallenge.

Throughout her multidecade career, White produced Life With Elizabeth and The Betty White Show. She later starred as Rose Nylund in The Golden Girlsbefore appearing in The Proposaland Hot in Cleveland.

The auction includes a plaque from Sunset Gower Studios where the Golden Girls was shot, and a "large number" of scripts for The Mary Tyler Moore Show, The Golden Girls and Hot in Cleveland.
