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.

Curly desperately needs dental surgery!

Curly lived in a cruel puppy mill for over 8 years and was seriously neglected until he was "retired" and entered our rescue. For 8 years, Curly did not have a name..he did not know life outside of a kennel...he did not know human touch, kindness or love. He was used to reproduce and then thrown away when he could not do so anymore.

When Curly first arrived, he was so scared he would not come out of his kennel...he would not allow anyone to touch him..he did not know what a blanket was for more or less a toy..he was scared of everything inside a house. Slowly over many months Curly made progress with the help of a loving foster family.

Curly needs extensive dental surgery due to the neglect he lived with for years. You can see in the photos how bad Curly's teeth are! We have never seen teeth this bad and our guess is he was not only very malnourished, but because he was never groomed, his fur wrapped around his teeth, likely for years!

Please help us take care of this special guy! Please help us stop Curly's pain and get him on the path to a loving forever home he deserves so much!

Thank you so much to all of our supporters! Please share Curly's story! 


Quick update & appreciation:

Thanks to a couple very generous donations, Curly's surgery is scheduled for Feb. 20, 2018! We are getting closer to our goal, however we still are needing donations! Please share Curly's story! 


  • Curly is recovering from extensive dental surgery; he needed 24 teeth removed! Thinking of this sweet boy living in a horrendous puppy mill that was THAT bad to warrant such extensive damage to his teeth, makes me cry! Then I hear from his AMAZING foster family and smile because he will only know love & kindness from now on!

    Please help us share Curly's story and raise funds for his vetting care. Thank you!!
