WHS caring for puppy with broken front legs; will match donations on Giving Tuesday
MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) -- The Wisconsin Humane Society is caring for a young puppy with broken front legs. In honor of National Day of Giving Tuesday, Dec. 3, WHS is asking for the public's support to help with her medical costs.
One-year-old Queeny arrived at WHS in March, and weighed only 4 pounds. WHS said she sat up on her hind limbs trying to keep her weight off her front, fractured legs. Queeny was given pain medication and WHS officials splinted each leg before sending her to a foster home to heal.
“Her fragile bones have taken incredibly long to heal,” said Angela Speed, vice president of communications at WHS, “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.”
WHS says Queeny will need several more weeks in foster care and continues to require veterinary treatment.
Her medical costs and continued care have added up to thousands of dollars. In honor of Giving Tuesday, all donations made to the Wisconsin Humane Society Dec. 3 will be automatically matched up to $30,000, thanks to Virginia Kress.
