Brain Health Workshop for Seniors

SPCA Pet of the Day: Meet Marilyn

Nicholas Boyack Reporter from Community News

Meet Marilyn, from Wellington SPCA, who needs a new home.

"I am currently in a foster home with my sisters, and this is what my foster mum has to say "Marilyn likes being picked up and cuddled and is always keen to sit on my knee. Would make a great pair with Miriam." I would do best in a quiet and stable home, with people around to offer me support. I will need time and patience. I would not settle with a busy home or one with young children. If this sounds like your family, please get in touch and we will put you in touch with our foster mum."
