Warren County Animal Control and Adoption Center has a 4-year-old dachshund it’s trying to place.
“She was found roaming the streets,” said Animal Control officer Brandi Bouldin. “She had a big lump on her chest. We took her to the vet and he performed surgery. She had breast cancer.”
She was affectionately named Macey by staff and her wonderful disposition has won their hearts.
“She loves to play and fetch,” said Bouldin. “She’s sweet and adorable. She would make someone a very loving companion. We are going to be very picky in whom we let adopt Macey.”
This is not Macey’s first brush with cancer, as evidence was found surgery had been performed before.
“This wasn’t her first surgery for cancer,” said Bouldin. “She’s a special-needs dog. She may need future vet care. She needs to be kept indoors. I do not want to find her roaming the streets again. She needs someone to love her.”
Serious inquires only may call 507-3647. Her adoption fee is $97, which includes the cost to spay and a $12 fee for rabies vaccination. Warren County Animal Control and Adoption Center is located at 169 Paws Trail.
