About Us

About Us
CUDDLY helps give all animals a healthy life and a loving home. We enable animal rescues to create fundraisers and wishlists to support animals in their care. Through CUDDLY, animal lovers can purchase and give in a modern, transparent way. With over 3,500+ animal welfare organizations on board, CUDDLY's mission is to help save as many animals globally through community, innovation, and creativity. As a for-good startup, we believe animals often "rescue" us. And it is our obligation to support those who do not have a voice. As a company, we believe the best way for us to make an impact is by providing the "business" tools, namely fundraising, marketing, and a valuable community, to animal-focused non-profits so that they can fulfill their potential and continue to do good.
