Pet of the Week
Meet Marzipan, who is just as sweet as her name suggests. This gentle Lab mix lived with the same family her whole life but ended up at the Washington Humane Society-Washington Animal Rescue League when they could no longer care for her. While she waits for someone to fall in love with her—and that’s not hard to do—she’s being doted on by staff and volunteers. Because she lived with small children and other dogs, Marzipan would be a great addition to a family that's looking to add to their “pack.” At 9 years old, she’s well past all the puppy nonsense, while still having a lot of life left to live—and love to give! Although Marzipan definitely enjoys getting out of the house and taking leisurely walks, she’s more of a mellow companion than a running buddy. She can't hear very well, but don't worry; her sense of smell is second to none, and if she smells some cheese in your hand, you’ll have her undivided attention.
Do you have room in your heart and home for a sweet, gentle dog? If so, stop by the WHS-WARL Oglethorpe Adoption Center soon to meet Marzipan. And be prepared for some sweet canine kisses! (If you’re over 50, Marzipan’s adoption fee will be waived as part of our Boomers’ Buddies program.)
