The need to help animals in crisis is almost constant. As animal lovers, we want to help immediately, but we might not always know how. Thankfully, one organization has made its mission to bridge the gap between donors and shelters to provide urgent funds when it’s needed. 

CUDDLY is a community making a difference one animal at a time. They connect shelters and rescues in need to donors to provide urgent medical care, food, and resources. With those life-changing donations, many animals are able to get adopted.

CUDDLY’s Story

CUDDLY serves as a platform for shelters and rescues to fundraise when needed. This organization, which has been around since 2014, stands out from its competitors because it supports global animal shelters at the local level. 100% of all the donations go to the shelter.

This organization’s mission has always stayed the same – to save as many animal lives as possible. They’ve already been very successful in these efforts, but as many people know, there are always more animals to save. 

CUDDLY’s website allows people to help in the following ways:

  • Donate much-needed wishlist items to benefit an animal’s recovery
  • The option to make a monetary donation toward an animal’s medical fund
  • Can’t pick just one animal to help? Donate monthly via the CUDDLY club

On CUDDLY, rescues and shelters can upload their fundraising campaigns to gather funds and wishlist items for certain animals. Once the animal recovers, they’re ready to find a loving forever home!

CUDDLY has an adopt page to help animals find the perfect families after they’ve fully healed. Many animals have found incredible second chances through CUDDLY, one of which is Nightingale, a dog whose body was covered in cancerous tumors.

Nightingale was in rough shape when rescuers found her, but donations made through CUDDLY helped fund her medical needs. After only a few months, Nightingale made the most incredible transformation possible! Today, Nightingale is living her best life, and she looks like a completely different dog. She’s so happy and full of life, and she loves to snuggle and play.

Help CUDDLY Save More Animals!

CUDDLY works hard to save, heal, and find homes for as many pets as possible through their fundraisers and awareness efforts. Through CUDDLY’s fundraisers, you can donate individual items or money that will directly go to shelters.

The need for donations is crucial because lots of animals need emergency supplies and funds to help them recover. Once those needs are taken care of, those animals can go on to find the loving homes they deserve. Every donation can make a difference.
