Remembering the Amazing
Betty White

Like the rest of the world, we're very sad to hear of Betty White’s passing. We loved and admired Betty’s passion for animals, her incredible sense of humor and sass, and her generosity of spirit. Betty was a dear friend, dedicated supporter, and ambassador for GDB since 1986. We are forever grateful for her many contributions to our life-changing mission.

Client Megan Borella is an accomplished 23-year-old who fell in love with her guide dog Gallagher the moment they were introduced.  Her involvement with GDB began when she was in grade school and her parents applied for her to have a K9 Buddy dog. But first, Megan had to overcome her fear of dogs.
