To honor the 91-year-old's love for animals, Washington Humane Society CEO Lisa LaFontaine will be on hand to unveil White’s figure. The Humane Society also had its mobile adoption center at the museum Tuesday for visitors to adopt animals.
"This is such a thrill, and such an honor, and don't think I take it lightly, and don't think I take it for granted," White said last year at her wax figure's reveal. "I am the luckiest old broad on two feet."
White, however, did have one critique for the artists at Tussauds. "The only thing that irks me is they waited until I was 90," she joked. "A few decades ago would have been swell."
"Of everything I do, animal well-being is my most important role, and that's why I've worked with the zoo and other animal organizations for so long," she said after being named chairwoman of the L.A. Zoo in 2010
White's figure will be on display in D.C. from October thru December 2013.
