is now

To better serve our animal-loving community as we move into the future, we plan to expand our offering. And in the process, we thought a name change was in order is now

"Cuddly" is how we feel about animals and it's how animals make us feel. That being said, while there are many upcoming changes, our mission remains the same. We aim to help animals around the world live better lives through innovation, community, and kindness. Thank you for being a part of our movement and, now, the family.


Surgical Construction to Build Hind Feet

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog
  • Name: Patty
  • Size: Large
  • Sex: Female
  • Age: Young

$1,140.00 raised of $2,500.00

Beautiful Patty was surrendered to Heidi's Legacy on May 22, 2018. She was born a year to two years ago with rear Club Feet which basically left her with little to no hind feet.

Patty only has a slight pad on her stubs so she has been using only one rear foot to painfully get around. Essentially Patty is walking directly on her bones. The initial belief was the use of prosthetics at the cost of several thousand dollars would be the only way to was her pain. Numerous X-rays were taken of both feet and lower legs for study by our specialists.

Say your prayers please for our Patty as she is having reconstructive surgery on both feet on June 25th and will be spending several days in the Hospital recovering. She is sweet and strong, we believe she will be even stronger with functional back legs. 

Please donate to her care or purchase items from her wishlist to keep her comfortable as she is starting on a long road to becoming whole.
