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.

Thrown Out of Car by Her Own Family

  • Breed: Chihuahua
  • Name: Valentina
  • Color: Brown
  • Size: Small
  • Sex: Female
  • Age: Young

$910.00 raised of $1,200.00

What Valentina's rescuer witnessed was absolutely horrifying: her entire family, with the kids in the car, literally dumped the little,13 lb. chihuahua, out of their moving car on a random road and drove away. Her rescuer watched sweet Valentina run after the car until she could no longer run; it was absolutely heartbreaking.


As if losing her family wasn't enough, Valentina was taken to the vet where she tested positive for hookworm. The vet was able to give her her first round of vaccines, along with initial treatment. Miss Valentina is a sweet, lovable young girl.


Please donate to Valentina's recovery and help us raise her full wish amount! We want to make sure she gets the medical help she needs to help her heal as quickly as possible. Additionally, please consider purchasing items from her wishlist to raise her spirits.
