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.


Hound Running Free for a Year Finally Saved!

  • Breed: Hound
  • Name: Cletus
  • Color: Black
  • Size: Medium
  • Sex: Male
  • Age: Adult

$690.00 raised of $2,000.00

Cletus was rescued by Dogs by Debin founder, Debin Norris, on July 18th after ONE YEAR roaming as a stray in the Smithville MO area.

After concerned neighbors who had been doing their best to care for this pup from afar reached out to DBD, our personnel sprung into action. Now that Cletus is in our care, it's clear he's in desperate need of medical attention. Of course, the initial expenses that go with catching any stray -- full screening, heartworm tests/treatment, vaccinations, etc. -- will all occur. We also expect additional expenses due to the shape this poor dude is in. Cletus appears to have some mobility issues, his ears are quite damaged due to fly strike and/or dog fights, and he's going to need some work to re-acclimate him to life with humans. Please consider donating to Cletus today to help him be as healthy and happy as possible. 


  • Cletus had a vet appointment on Tuesday, July 24th. After review, he was put on antibiotics for his ear wound infections and it appears his jaw or lip is detached and may require surgery. The vet will do a further inspection during Cletus' neuter on 8/7 to determine if surgery is required for his jaw. 

    He's been hanging out with our staff as an "office dog" and is slowly coming around to humans. He loves other dogs and cats, though, so is a social guy who's learning what it means to have a sweet life
