Helping Cedric: Victoria SPCA hopes public can come through for lovable pup
He can rock a mean diaper. Cedric, a five-month-old puppy German shepherd who found his way to the Victoria SPCA after being surrendered in Port Alberni because his former humans moved, suffers from a severe bladder infection with cauliflower growths. Victoria BC SPCA Branch staff and volunteers are hoping the public can help the happy-go-lucky pup receive the medical care he needs.
“Cedric is such a sweetie! His bladder is too far back, which causes incontinence, so he needs surgery to remove the growths and change the position of the bladder,” says BC SPCA Victoria Branch manager Annie Prittie Bell. “He’s a lovely puppy with a very social personality. He loves people and dogs and other animals alike.”
Currently staying in foster care among goats, chickens, other dogs and adult humans, Cedric will require two to three months to clear up his infection, undergo surgery and recover. The total cost of his medical needs is estimated at $8,500. A non-profit organization, the BC SPCA relies mainly on public donations to carry out its life-saving work in helping the province’s most vulnerable animals.
“Cedric is so full of love and is such a sweetheart,” Pritte Bell says. “We just want him to have a better chance at living a happy, healthy and pain-free life, in a loving forever home.”
