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.


Saving Ivan's Eyesight and Ligament Surgery

  • Breed: Pit Bull Terrier
  • Name: Ivan
  • Color: Black
  • Size: Large
  • Sex: Male
  • Age: Adult

$1,235.00 raised of $5,000.00

When you think you've seen it all, then comes in sweet Ivan who has suffered from being starved and mistreated. His ribs are sticking out and he eats so fast that we had to give him a slow feeder. We tell him he will never miss another meal again, but he cant understand us. His eyes are so badly inflamed and infected he can barely see. The Green goo wont stop draining from both eyes onto his sweet face. No matter how much we clean it, it comes right back. The infection has been going on since before he came to us we are sure, and the discomfort is so bad that Ivan wont stop crying in his kennel and scratching.

We need to get Ivan into an eye specialist ASAP. If he does not get in soon he could go blind. We need all the help we can get, and cant do this alone. PLEASE help us help our sweet Ivan, he and we are begging you. If you can help towards Ivan's medical expenses please note it on your donation. All Ivan wants to do is cuddle up on our laps and give us kisses.

Ivan also seems to be limping on his back left leg. We are not sure if he was injured from running as a stray for who knows how long, or he may require immediate surgery. This poor boy is in bad shape and needs to go to the vet now!

Unfortunately, we are out of funds, and none of our vets will see Ivan until we pay off our current medical bills. Almost Home is in dire need of DONATIONS!!! We need financial help. We could not say no to our sweet Ivan and turn him away. We cant let Ivan down, he's been through so much already and we are all he has.



    Our sweet Ivan is in need of a quite and cozy foster home to recover in. Ivan will be getting two surgeries done at different times on each of his back legs. He will be getting two patella surgeries and possibly two ACL surgeries as well, the doctor will know if the ACL surgeries are needed once he gets a closer look while Ivan is under for surgery. Ivan needs to go to a foster home as the only spoiled pet and a home with adults only or teenagers. The shelter is not a great place for Ivan to recover from this huge surgery in so please find it in your heart to open up your home to him.

    If you are unable to foster Ivan but are able to help contribute towards his surgery please donate

  • Thank you everyone for your donations towards Ivan's medical expenses.

    With your help we were able to get him into one of our vets. Sadly, that's not the end of Ivan's recovery. You see his eyes don't produce tears and he needs to be on extensive eye drops for the rest of his life to help keep his eyes clear.

    Ivan needed X-rays while he was at the vet and we found out the unbearable, we were all so devastated. Our sweet Ivan boy has suffered for quite some time before he came to us. The vet isn't 100% how it happened but he has a badly torn ligament in his back leg that requires surgery ASAP.

    The vet also noted the ligament is severely inflamed, and is causing our sweet Ivan a lot of pain. When Ivan walks he drags his back leg around because he has no other choice right now until he gets his surgery.

    Almost Home is very low on funds, and his surgery will cost around $5,000. Almost Home wants what is best for Ivan, and that is trying to raise funds for his surgery so he can walk comfortably.
