WASHINGTON -- Actress and animal lover Betty White is joining the collection in wax at the Madame Tussauds museum in Washington.

The museum says a new wax figure of the 91-year-old White will be unveiled Wednesday. Washington Humane Society CEO Lisa LaFontaine will unveil White's figure to pay homage to the "Hot in Cleveland" star's passion for animals.
