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.


Mara's emergency treatment for pneumonia

  • Breed: Great Dane
  • Name: Mara
  • Color: Blue
  • Size: Extra Large
  • Sex: Female
  • Age: Adult

Mara was just taken to the animal hospital because she spiked a fever of 104 and has bacterial pneumonia.

We were told that her lungs have filled with fluid, and she needs to be on an IV drip for 48 hours with intense antibiotics.

She has not been able to hold any food down for three days and her chest sounds terrible.Mara is stable, but you can see how exhausted she is and how much she is struggling to breathe normally.

This girl has been through the ringer in life. She came into the rescue two weeks ago, dangerously thin, and with her brother, Aries, who she has had to endure having babies with. (Yes, brother and sister are also mom and dad to a litter). We acted quickly and immediately got her spayed and vaccinated last week. Poor thing, she finally gets into a safe and loving foster home this past week but instantly contracts pneumonia and has to return to the hospital.

If you would be willing to spare a few dollars for this unassuming and gentle girl's emergency vetting, we would definitely appreciate it. She is struggling to breathe and could use all of the help she can get.
