Minnie is a 10-year-old beagle who was recently rescued from an animal hoarding situation in the City of Racine. She has some special medical needs, so her furever family should be ready, willing and able to provide her the comfort and care she deserves.

Wisconsin Humane Society spokesperson Angela Speed sent this information to us about Minnie:

Minnie, the sweet 10-year-old Beagle gal rescued on Monday from a hoarding situation, is looking for an extra special home because of her unique medical needs. Minnie is showing signs of kidney insufficiency due to protein loss from her kidneys.  This is causing her to drink and urinate excessively.  This condition may eventually lead to kidney failure and sadly result in a decreased life expectancy.  There are medications and dietary changes that may slow the progression of her condition.  This condition should be discussed further with adopter’s private veterinarian to discuss the best course of treatment and/or further testing. WHS is looking for a loving adopter willing to take on Minnie’s special challenges. She will return your love tenfold! After being rescued from a hoarding situation, she deserves so much love and attention, and with enough people sharing her story, we’re sure to find someone!

To schedule an appointment to meet Minnie, call the WHS Racine campus at 554-6699. You can visit Minnie’s page athttp://wihumane.org/adopt/animal?id=31075189
