We pulled her from a local shelter where she was an owner surrender. We're pretty certain Queenie didn't have a good life with her previous owner. She was being fed cat food and is scared of so much. She's scared to eat her food out of a food bowl or even a plate. She's still not sure what toys or treats are, but she's learning. She's still a bit scared when she meets new people because she's not sure if she can trust them or if she'll be safe with them. 😢 Queenie needs a home with no little kids, so she can have the space and time she needs to feel safe. She needs a special family who's able to show her lots of love and be patient with her as she continues to come out of her shell.
We are a Chicagoland area foster based rescue. As a no-kill, non-profit 501(c)(3) organization we rely solely on the donations of individuals and business to help us rescue and rehabilitate unwanted, abused and neglected companion animals. We are a volunteer based organization, 100% of all donations go back into our rescue giving us the ability to continue to save lives.
We believe that establishing a dedicated network of committed and caring fosters, volunteers and business partners is instrumental in rescue and rehabilitation. Through these networks and everyone’s generous donations we can provide proper vetting along with spay/neuter to all of the companion animals that are taken into RRF. Continuing to educate the public on the importance of spay/neuter is only one step of many. Detection and prevention of animal cruelty is an important part of our mission along with general education on cherishing the lifelong commitment that comes with having a companion animal.
