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.


Surgery to repair patella

  • Breed: Terrier
  • Name: Annie
  • Color: Brown
  • Size: Medium
  • Sex: Female
  • Age: Young

$60.00 raised of $1,500.00

Annie is a 9 month old terrier mix who came to us from a very bad situation.  She and 18 other dogs were taken from a hoarder several months ago by the local animal control officer and ended up in the shelter.  Several area rescue organizations got together and pulled most of them; however, Annie and 2 of her sisters remained at the shelter, having been deemed semi-feral.  Hope4Hearts took a chance on them and pulled all 3.  One sister was adopted, however, Annie and Autumn remain in foster care.  They have come so far in learning to trust people and we feel they soon will be ready for adoption.  But now poor Annie has been diagnosed with a bum knee which will require surgery to fix it.  This poor girl just can't seem to catch a break.

Surgery to repair her patella is quite costly.  We've been given an estimate of $1,500, but we think she deserves a chance to run and play like a puppy again.  Can you please help us help her?  Annie and all of us at Hope4Hearts would be so grateful for your support.
