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.


Meatball the Survivor's Cancer Treatment

  • Breed: English Bulldog
  • Name: Meatball
  • Color: Fawn
  • Size: Medium
  • Sex: Male
  • Age: Adult

Meatball lived a life of hardship before being rescued last summer. He was emaciated, had sunburns and scars from living outside his whole life, heartworms, and two kinds of intestinal worms. Meatball also had two untreated cherry eyes and had a drug resistant infection on his nose.

Meatball never knew what it was like to be in a loving home. After everything he has been through, he has come a long way from his emotional and physical scars. Just when he started healing, Meatball was diagnosed with digital malignant melanoma. He need to have a toe removed on his back right foot. From what we understand, it has not spread, which is great news. However, in order to help Meatball avoid the cancer from spreading further, he needs a very specific, expensive vaccine called Oncept.

Meatball deserves to live a happy, pain-free life. Meatball thanks you in advance from the bottom of his sweet bullie heart. You can also help him by purchasing items from his wishlist; these items will brighten his day and give him comfort while he awaits his forever home.



    Meatball received his 3rd treatment last week. His foster Momma took some sausage snacks with him that he received from his PoundWISHES supporters because he LOVES them and it distracts him from the vaccine gun that's loud and scary. Meatball has some down days after his vaccine, but has bounced back from each one. His foster parents are super glad there's only one more treatment left. Wahoo!! Way to go Meatball and thank you PoundWISHES supporters!! You ROCK! <3

  • Meaty says THANK YOU everyone! Because of you he has been able to have one vaccine already and he received a couple of Dino Nylabones in the mail yesterday and it really helped cheer him up. He goes in today for his second vaccine. The first one cause him to have "flu-like" symptoms for about a week or so where he only felt like getting up to go potty and eat. He did lots of sleeping. We expect that's what this second vaccine will do as well. Hopefully the nylabones will help perk him up a little during his down time. THANK YOU EVERYONE! <3
