A few months back, there was an awful video circulating the internet of a man filming himself brutally beating a dog while making disturbing threats of violence.
The dog in the video, Kellina, who belonged to the man's roommate, was repeatedly beaten and traumatized. Kellina was a completely innocent victim of this maniac's violence and when Big Paw Rescue got word of this, they jumped to bring in to safety. Her head was very swollen, she had a broken canine tooth, and an abnormality in her hips. Everyone was so sad for Kellina and the unimaginable abuse she went through, but so relieved that Big Paw Rescue was able to rescue her and take her away from the terrible situation. Big Paw Rescue knew that they would need help with all of Kellina's medical expenses, so they reached out to CUDDLY and started a campaign for this sweet girl.
CUDDLY wanted to help Big Paw Rescue as much as they could, so they highlighted her campaign on social media and provided free marketing to help get the word out. Sure enough, Kellina's story troubled many generous people that chose to donate to her care. With CUDDLY's help, Kelllina's campaign raised almost $2,000 to help pay for her medical expenses. In addition, crucial wishlist gifts were donated on her behalf through her CUDDLY campaign that helped her in her recovery.
Kellina was placed in foster care with a loving family that gave her the love and care she was longing for. Fast forward to one week ago and that same foster family made the decision that they simply could not part ways with this amazing dog. Her foster family has officially become her forever home and we couldn't be happier. Together, we were all able to show her that she is safe and that humans do have the capacity to be kind.
