Queenie, also known as Queen Isabella, deserves a home fit for a queen! On September 22nd, this Chihuahua-Pekingese mix arrived at the Harnett County Animal Shelter in North Carolina when she was surrendered by her owner, supposedly for biting. However, folks at the shelter thought she ended up there for another reason: Queenie was suffering from cherry eyes, a condition that can cause inflammation, swelling, infection, or other more serious complications. Fixing the condition would require surgery, which the owner might have considered too troublesome.
On October 9th, Cathy Kerr with HEART Pet Rescue in North Carolina reached out to RADAR to see if we could help Queenie. We agreed to assist, and she was pulled from the shelter on the same day—which happened to be Columbus Day, hence her name—but she still needed to have her eyes taken care of in order for her to be adopted. Queenie had her eye surgery on October 26th.
Cathy said this about Queenie: “This little darling has a wonderful and sweet personality. She has won the hearts of everyone who has met her! She is playful, friendly, gentle, loving and well-mannered.” To see more photos of Queenie, click here.
RADAR paid all of the cherry eye surgery costs for Queenie, which totaled $186.
