Big Hearted Cedo

I’m only working part time because of COVID, Cedo got attacked and I need help to help him.

— Kim, Cedo's mom —

7 years ago, Kim couldn’t resist this beautiful, playful and bright eyed Pit Bull puppy when she went to pick out a forever companion. Little Cedo captured her heart straight from the beginning, and they have been the best of family ever since.

While out on a walk in late January, Kim was shocked when another dog came over and began attacking Cedo. She was able to get the dogs apart, but the other dog had already done damage to her baby Cedo by leaving a bite on the top of his head. Kim brought her baby home, cleaned him up and made sure he began resting immediately after his attack. She kept a very close eye on Cedo, and within 12 hours realized the swelling around the bite mark was not going down and Cedo needed to see a veterinarian.

As a concerned puppy mom, Kim shared with us she is also taking care of a friend’s dog currently as well and her finances are stretched tight with only being able to work part time due to COVID. Trying to make the ends meet at the end of the month, Kim has been doing her very best for both dogs this past year.

Thanks to our Chestnut’s Crisis Fund, which was established specifically for those experiencing financial hardship directly related to COVID-19, Max’s Helping Paws was able to extend the assistance needed for Cedo to be seen at Animal Hospital Mid Valley. With this treatment, Cedo was able to get the medications and care he needed to heal from the attack. Thank you to our donors and partner organizations for allowing Cedo to return happy, healthy and home.
