Unconditional love and barbecue

Queenie surveys the crowd Saturday at Ziggy’s Island Market from the safety of St. Croix Animal Welfare Center Foster Coordinator Stephanie Ahrens’ arms. Queenie has been raising her puppies in foster care and will be ready for adoption in three to four weeks. The St. Croix crowd at the center’s first Pop-Up Saturday fundraiser enjoyed the companionship of dogs from the center, barbecue from Rolling Smoke and a 50/50 raffle that raised more than a thousand dollars.
