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.

Cancer Treatment - For the love of Misty

  • Name: Misty

  • Size: Medium
  • Sex: Female
  • Age: Senior

$445.00 raised of $3,000.00

Misty was found as a stray in November of 2017. She then found herself at Chicago Animal Control. It was determined by their veterinary staff that Misty's left 2nd mammary glad contained a large mass as did the 3rd, 4th, and 5th mammary glands. The 5th mammary gland contained a small, semi-firm lobular mass as well. It was decided to perform a left chain mastectomy and a right 5th mastectomy.

We didn't want Misty to die alone in the shelter so our rescue took her in and we started cancer treatment. She has been doing amazing with the treatments so far. She has completed 5 IV Chemotherapy treatments and tolerated them well with minimal side effects. So we started Leukeran which is an anti-cancer chemotherapy pill, at the end of June and so far she has been doing well.  She is 8.5 years old and a sweet little girl. Loving, cuddly, smart, listens very well, is playful, funny and is well behaved inside her awesome fosters home and she walks well on a leash.

Her foster has been taking her to treatments, and providing her with the best care. She absolutely adores her and we couldn't think of a better place for this girl to be going through her treatments. When we pulled Misty we thought she was going to be a hospice case, she proved us wrong! 

This is from Misty's  foster Momma:

 Misty has a love for life and loves with all of her heart.

Right now her favorite toy and game is a big queen size blanket that she shakes and loves to be covered up in and find her way out. Misty also likes Nylabones of different shapes, flavors (except peanut butter) and sizes to chew on. She also loves to go for rides in the car and go for walks.

Please help us continue to let Misty live a happy loving life!

  • Thank you so much for all who have sent Misty items from her wish-list! She loves them and she deserves to be spoiled :) She has another check up later this week to she how she is doing. She has been responding well with the oral chemotherapy pills. We will continue as long as she tells us she feels good enough and wants to continue. We will not let her suffer. She has had very minimal effects from the start of her treatment back in February. Please continue to keep your paws crossed for Misty! Thank you all for your support!
