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.

Found stuck in barbed wire fence for several days

  • Name: Molly
  • Color: White
  • Size: Medium
  • Sex: Female
  • Age: Adult

Molly was found on the side of the road in shock after getting tangled in barbed wire. Connect A Pet New England rushed her to the ER for immediate evaluation. Their first step was to make sure Molly was properly hydrated and stable. They started her on IV fluids, strong IV antibiotics, and heavy doses of pain meds. The vet did X-rays and there are a couple of spots on her spine where you can tell she was twisting and flipping, trying to get loose from the wire. Based on her extensive dehydration, the doctor said she was probably stuck for days. Unfortunately, there is no saving her tail and it will have to be amputated. Due to her state, Molly will need to regain her strength before she can undergo surgery.

Based on her dehydration level, it is believed she ran off in fear around or on July 4th, perhaps because of the fireworks. Since her mouth was cut up, vets also believe she had managed to break the rusty barbed wire by chewing it. On top of everything else, this poor girl has also been diagnosed with heartworm and will need to be medicated for several weeks.

Molly has fought hard and now we are fighting for her. Please considering supporting Molly by donating to her medical fund or donating an item off her Wishlist.

Updates

  • Molly went to the vet the other day. She was started on medication for her Heartworms. The vet thinks the lack of weight gain is all Heartworm related. The vet will do the injections for Heartworms a week after starting medication so we will be doing those soon. Need lots of prayers! Although she always seems to look sad, she is starting to walk more around our home. She struggles with her back legs and if there is anything on the ground, even a toy she will trip over it and fall but overall walking good once up. Please continue supporting sweet Molly!
