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.

Diagnostics for Injured Leg

$120.00 raised of $250.00

Firefly is a seven year old retired racing dog that sustained a bad leg injury several years ago.  She joined our Sanctuary just a couple of weeks ago and we needed to assess the extent of her leg injury, as well as her general health.  Her lab work came back normal and she was able to undergo a much needed dental.  Her radiographs show a bad break in her right rear hock that did not heal properly.  There is a great deal of tendon damage and no surgical fix at this time.  Thankfully, the hock is stable enough and not painful at this time, so amputation is not needed.  FIrefly gets around on 3 legs most of the time and needs to be on non-slip flooring and ramping so that she does not injure her leg further.  Another injury may results in amputation.  Despite her injury and handicap, Firefly has a wonderful spirit and her outgoing nature touches the hearts of everyone she meets.  Can you please help us pay for some of her recent vet bills, or purchase an item or two from her Wish List?  THANKS!!

Updates

  • Firefly is so happy to be finally free of intestinal parasites!!!!  She came to us with a bad case of hookworms and giardia and after multiple de-wormings and fecal checks, she's finally clean.  Her stools are so much better now and she's eating well and gaining a little weight.  She is so beautiful and warms the hearts of everyone she meets.

  • Firefly is quite a social greyhound and loves getting attention at meet and greets.  She also sits!  (Which is often difficult for a normal greyhound to do).

  • Firefly was at the vet recently and although there is nothing we can do for her leg at the moment, we did some other tests to make sure that her body was functioning properly.  So far, so good!
