51244 – Cedar
Medical Case – Heartworms 🙁
Why choose me?
Update from Cedar’s advocate 4/20: LOOK AT THIS FACE!
As part of volunteering at the Athens Clarke County Animal Control, I have the opportunity to advocate for pets needing homes. I have chosen Cedar, a 6 year old spayed female. The day I met her, she found a way to sit on my lap at the picnic bench, and only left to greet other visitors who drove to the shelter (can’t miss an opportunity, right?). She was such a love that I might just have been heard singing “You’ve Got a Friend” to her before I took her back to her kennel. Cedar has heartworms, which means she will need treatment and confinement during that time, but my dog Greta has been through this and is now fine.
Update 4/17: Unfortunately, Cedar has tested positive for heartworms. To learn about heartworms, including how to treat them, please go to the American Heartworm Society‘s webpage. For information about the cost of treatment, please speak with your veterinarian. While Athenspets helps with the cost of treatment when we can, an adopter needs to be prepared to pay for at least some of the cost and for enforcing the exercise restrictions it entails.
Cedar is such a sweet, friendly girl! When she entered the interaction pen, she had a quick case of the zoomies, but then she was all about spending time with me. She’s an obedient dog who comes when called, sits for treats, and is beginning to get lay. Cedar is microchipped and was adopted from ACCAC two years ago. I remember her as being a happy, good-natured dog, and that still rings true now. I hope she’s reunited with her family, but if that doesn’t happen, she’d be a wonderful addition to almost any family looking for a sweet, loving dog!
