Pet lovers and pets are going crazy for Cuddle Clones, and for good reason! The Cuddle Clones toy company will create a stuffed animal that looks just like your pet, and the results are quite impressive. All you have to do is simply send in a photo of your pet and the company generates a stuffed toy clone that literally looks identical to your best animal friend.
Dog-lover Jennifer Graham is the founder of Cuddle Clones. Many years ago, Jennifer was inspired by her Great Dane named Rufus to create custom plush toys. She never acted on her idea until Rufus passed away in 2009, at which point Jennifer decided to turn her idea into a reality. She created a stuffed animal replica of her beloved Rufus as a way to memorialize him, and she hasn’t stopped making stuffed animals since.

Cuddle Clones is based out of Louisville, Kentucky where Jennifer Graham lives. Her passion for creating the company was born after she lost her dog Rufus on Thanksgiving Day in 2009. Soon after his passing she made a replica stuffed animal of Rufus. Simultaneously, Cuddle Clones was born.
Since the origin of Cuddle Clones, Jennifer has given the company everything she’s got–including all of her time, money, and efforts. Not only does she sell incredible products for pet lovers and pets, but she also works hard to give back to the pet community. She donates to animal charities and pet-related causes any opportunity that she gets.
In fact, a portion of the proceeds from every Cuddle Clone goes directly to pet-related charities and causes, all in hopes of giving animals everywhere a better life.
The mission of Cuddle Clones is: “To capture the emotional connection between people and their pets through our customized products.”
