12 Strays of Christmas: Meet Cedric

(WMC-TV) – Have you thought this season about opening up your heart and your home to a sweet animal in need?

This year, we introduce to you "The 12 Strays of Christmas".

Action News 5 is partnering with the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County to share with you 12 animals in need of homes this holiday season. We will introduce you to a new pet each day through December 22. And each pet featured in the "12 Strays of Christmas" comes with a very special adoption fee of just $12.

Meet Cedric

Cedric is a four-year-old white staffordshire terrier/lab mix who weighs just under 60 lbs. He came to the Humane Society after a Good Samaritan rescued him from being hit with a 2x4.

You may feel a lot of anger about that, but Cedric doesn't. He lives for the moment, and he is now a wonderful, healthy dog with a true love for life. His spontaneity and genuine affection for all he meets make him very special. He really enjoys most dogs he meets and may even be ok with cats! Since he is very playful and on the larger side, we recommend that any children in his home are over 12.

If you are interested in making Cedric the newest member of your family, contact the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County at 901-937-3900.

The $12 adoption fee for Cedric includes the following:

  • Spay/neuter surgery
  • Rabies vaccination
  • Age appropriate vaccines
  • De-worming treatments
  • Heartworm testing (dogs only)
  • FIV/Leukemia testing (cats only)
  • Microchip for permanent identification
  • Humane Society ID tag
  • Follow up calls with our Adoption Counselors to make sure your new pet is adjusting well
  • A goodie bag with coupons and some toys
  • About the Humane Society of Memphis & Shelby County
