Simon & Bea Arthur (Dog)
Hayley Atwell, a long-time supporter of Marley’s Mutts Dog Rescue, has deepened her connection with the organization by adopting two rescue dogs, Simon and Bea Arthur, in October 2015. While it seems Bea’s name might have been changed, glimpses of Arthur still appear on Atwell’s social media. Her journey with Marley’s Mutts began before these adoptions; she clinched a $10,000 prize for the rescue in a lip-sync battle on Spike TV. Eager to engage more intimately, Atwell took steps to gain a deeper understanding of the rescue’s operations in Kern County.
