The Betty White Challenge is blowing up the internet with donations rolling in to help local animal shelters. The movement dubbed the 'Betty White Challenge' is challenging fans to donate $5 to help local animals in her name for her birthday. 

The legendary television icon would have celebrated her 100th birthday on Monday, Jan. 17, and was known for her love and support of animals. 

The Gulf Coast Humane Society is taking donations online if you want to support the movement or you can help locally at the animal kennels in Alice and San Diego.

Luna is one of several elderly dogs up for adoption at Gulf Coast Humane Society, which is raising money for its older animals during the Betty White Challenge.

Animal control is always looking for community support. 

During the colder temperatures, the kennels need blankets to keep the animals warm. Dog and cat food is always needed along with supplies such as bowls, leashes and play toys. Above all, a little love and support of adoption can make the biggest impact.
