Betty White Honored by Veterinary College

Betty White, the 89-year-old award-winning actress and comedian, was named an honorary graduate of the Washington State University College of Veterinary Medicine. She was given the traditional practitioner’s white coat at the centennial celebration of the Washington State Veterinary Medical Association in Yakima.

White, who has won six Emmy Awards for her work on television, has been a financial supporter of the college and has been an advocate for animal rights. The inscription on a plaque given to White, read in part, “Your body of work in the entertainment industry is perhaps only eclipsed by your devotion to the health and well-being of animals.”

In accepting the award, White quipped, “So now that I have this white coat, if any of you would like to be spayed or neutered, I’m available.”
