Betty White is a huge animal lover and zoo enthusiast.
She has a new book coming out called Betty & Friends: My Life at the Zoo.
In it, she says she loves good zoos but that protesting and marching aren't enough to turn a bad zoo into one.
"I was really kind of appalled that a city like Los Angeles had such a poor zoo… I’ve never been a big demonstrator from the outside criticizing. I’d much rather get inside and help. So I started to work with the zoo and got hooked, and they haven’t been able to get rid of me since."
While many groups, including PETA, feel that zoos are cruel, offering only the basic needs for animals, Betty feels differently.
"Many people get very irate, say, ‘Animals should be in their natural habitat, they shouldn’t be in captivity.’ Well, in the meantime, we’ve taken much of that natural habitat away. It doesn’t exist anymore."
If you'd like to hear more of Betty's words of wisdom, you can check it out at any major book store.

The actor was honored this past week at the 18th annual Dream Halloween fundraising campaign, which helps to give children with HIV/AIDS a fun and safe Halloween.
Josh was presented with the "Ribbon of Dreams" award for his work as a children's advocate. The event also helped to raise for money for children affected by HIV or AIDS.
Kids enjoyed Halloween treats and activities like the "Trick-or-Treat Lane," arts and crafts, and face painting, where other honorees were given awards like philanthropist Jake Kloberdanz.
