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.

Infection riddled front jaw & heavy heartworms

  • Breed: German Shepherd Dog
  • Name: CONNIE
  • Size: Large
  • Sex: Female
  • Age: Adult

$290.00 raised of $4,000.00

This beautiful girl is Connie. She was found as a stray in a garage parking lot looking for food and water. Tests revealed she has a heavy heart worm infestation and some type of an infection in her front lower jaw that has consumed some front lower teeth and part of her jaw, requiring reconstruction.

Fearing cancer in her lungs from the x-rays, she was put on a regamine of Prednisone and Doxycycline for several days. Luckily her lungs showed some improvement, so pretty much cancer was for now ruled out. Surgery is set at Knowles Animal Clinic Central in Miami for Monday, June 18th to remove the growth and infection and reconstruct the bottom jaw. She will have 4-6 days recovery in the hospital. 

Right now her bill for shots, care and preparation, and hospitalization care and meds is over $1500+ with anticipated surgical and post care at approximately $2500+. Please help us give this sweet girl a good future to look forward to. 

Thank you for considering helping Connie.
