MILWAUKEE — A puppy named Queeny at the Wisconsin Humane Society in Milwaukee is recovering from two broken legs, and for Giving Tuesday, donations are being matched for her.

In March, she was brought to WHS at 1-year-old, weighing four pounds with fractured front legs. Staff gave her pain medication, performed X-rays, splinted each leg and sent her to a foster home to heal.

Since then, she is still in WHS's care and is slowly healing.

“Her fragile bones have taken incredibly long to heal,” said WHS Vice President of Communications Angela Speed in a press release, “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.”

Queeny requires veterinary treatment and several more weeks in foster care. Her medical costs and care are in the thousands of dollars. WHS is asking for donations to help with the costs. All donations made Tuesday will be matched up to $30,000. Visit WHS's website or call 414-431-6119 to make a donation.
