The Victoria SPCA is appealing to the public to get some help for a very special puppy.

Cedric, a five-month-old puppy German shepherd, suffers from a severe bladder infection with cauliflower growths. Victoria SPCA branch staff and volunteers are hoping the public can help the happy-go-lucky pup receive the medical care he needs.

“His bladder is too far back, which causes incontinence, so he needs surgery to remove the growths and change the position of the bladder,” said B.C. 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.”

The puppy found his way to the Victoria SPCA after being surrendered in Port Alberni because his former owners moved, and is 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 B.C. 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,” said Pritte Bell. “We just want him to have a better chance at living a happy, healthy and pain-free life, in a loving forever home.”

If you can help Cedric and other animals like him at the Victoria SPCA, donate online at spca.bc.ca/medicalemergency or in person at 3150 Napier Lane, Victoria.
