Susanna Homan, the CEO of Paws Chicago, joined ABC7 Chicago to talk about pet adoption Monday morning.
White spoke about her love of animals on GMA in 2011: "My mother and dad were the same way. And my mother used to tell a story that if, when she brought me home from the hospital, if our cat, Toby, hadn't liked me, I would have been sent right back to the hospital."
