Giving Tuesday

When Queeny arrived at the Wisconsin Humane Society, both of the tiny pup’s front legs were broken. She was just a year old and weighed only 4lbs. When our veterinarians performed her initial exam, Queeny sat up on her hind limbs, trying to keep her weight off the fractured legs – we knew the poor girl was hurting. We provided pain medication, performed X-rays, and splinted each leg before sending her into an amazing foster home to heal.

That was back in March… and Queeny is still in our care today. Her fragile bones have taken incredibly long to heal, but we’re here for her as long as it takes. This summer, we were overjoyed when she regained function of her left leg and that cast was removed, but her right is still bandaged, healing ever so slowly. Thankfully, Queeny gets around wonderfully whether she’s on two casts or one – she’s more worried about finding the best spot to snuggle than she is about her bandage.

As you can imagine, Queeny’s medical bills, food, and supplies add up quickly. She’ll still need several more weeks in foster care and she continues to require veterinary treatment, but her happiness is so worth it. No matter what comes next, we can be there for her thanks to your support.

Queeny's story is a reminder of the more than 40,000 animals we serve each year at the Wisconsin Humane Society. It's no exaggeration when we say we simply couldn't do this without you. WHS receives no general government funding and is not part of any national groups like HSUS, ASPCA, or PETA. We run on donations from generous people like you and we would be so grateful if you'd consider making a gift today in support of Queeny. In honor of Giving Tuesday, all donations made today will be automatically matched up to $30,000, thanks to the incredible Virginia Kress! Click here to make a donation or contact Christine at 414-431-6119. Special thanks to Dan and Katie Milbeck for providing a match earlier this morning!
