Through Ani­mal Care & Con­trol’s Loan­ing Love” pro­gram, City of Mar­i­on Mar­ket­ing & Com­mu­ni­ty Rela­tions Direc­tor Lay­la Price took Nel­lie, a beau­ti­ful female Bea­gle, on a stroll along the city’s new­ly man­i­cured Mis­sissinewa River­walk. They explored the riv­er from the path and over­look points and walked all the way to the Charles Mill Dam and back.

Over the past year, the Mis­sissinewa River­walk has been revi­tal­ized with fresh wayfind­ing sig­nage, thanks to design intern Sam Elkin, City of Mar­i­on Parks & Recre­ation, Com­mu­ni­ty Devel­op­ment, City­wide Main­te­nance, and the Real­tors of Grant Coun­ty. The City also stained the posts, made infra­struc­ture repairs, weed­ed, and resur­faced the walk­way. These improve­ments also owe thanks to the Grant Coun­ty Sher­if­f’s inmate work crew and ded­i­cat­ed volunteers.

Nel­lie enjoyed greet­ing peo­ple walk­ing along the River­walk, and loved sniff­ing around on the grass. She was very well-behaved and calm yet full of ener­gy. At the end of the walk, she was con­tent after drink­ing a bowl of cold water.

Nel­lie is adopt­able through the City of Mar­i­on’s Ani­mal Care & Con­trol. She is approx­i­mate­ly 8 years old, hav­ing been tak­en in as a stray. She is very sweet and laid back, and great with oth­er dogs and peo­ple includ­ing chil­dren. To learn more about adopt­ing Nel­lie, call Ani­mal Care & Con­trol at 765.668.4491.
