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.

Real Dog Rescue was approached with a deseparate plea to help Betty White after she was found dumped on the side of the road in deplorable condition.  Poor Betty had what turned out to be an extremely large hernia overwhelming her small body.  The hernia had been neglected for so long that her colon and intestines became entrapped inside of it.  It was so large in fact, that it dragged on the ground weighing her small frame down as she walked.  In addition, all of the teeth in Betty’s mouth were infected and rotten.  The infection was so intense that, as we began to work on her, some of the teeth just crumbled right out of her mouth.  

Betty has already been through two surgeries for the repair of the hernia, freeing her trapped organs, and repair of her jaw to help alleviate the tremendous pain she must have been suffering in her mouth.  Betty has been such a fighter and trooper throughout all that she has endured.  All this precious girl wants to do is love on everyone she meets!  

Unfortunately Betty now needs a third surgery to close up some holes in her mouth that remained after having all but 2 of her teeth removed.  She has developed fistulas in her mouth that need to be surgically repaired in order to avoid a battle with what could become lifelong issues. She has come SO far, we can't give up on her now!
