As I post this today, Queenie
has been in our shelter for 911 days! She actually came from another shelter where she stayed prior! Our "Queen" is 5 years old, very playful & well trained. She needs to have a throne of her own! If you have an active lifestyle or could use a cuddle, Queenie could be your sidekick! She knows commands such as sit, down, stay, place, drop and more!

Please consider fostering to adopt, or just come meet her to see if she would make a good fit!  Don't let 1000 days happen!
