doris day people mag picIt was big news that Doris Day just had a birthday.

Although it doesn’t always make the news about some of the smaller pet protection organizations like Pets Uniting People Society (P.U.P.S.) that her Doris Day Animal Foundation helps. We certainly appreciate that help. The P.U.P.S. Board would like to give a big shout out to Doris and her Doris Day Animal Foundation for their nonstop work in helping animals along with the people who love them. It is appreciated!

Doris, we hope your birthday celebration was the best one ever!

Kittens Available for Adoption Soon

These kittens are being nursed by their mommas in PUPS’ foster care. If you are interested in one, please contact P.U.P.S. foster, Dottie. The mommas will be spayed after the kittens are weaned. These kitties were found at an abandoned location across from the new regional hospital in Springfield, OH. We are hoping the mommas can be adopted too. (More pictures to be posted)

There are 10 kittens and all are so adorable.

Dottie said it was difficult getting pictures as they run, jump, and play when she’s trying to capture some pictures.

If interested in one, please message through our website or call or text Dottie at (937) 244-0852.

Sammy is now adopted. There were many inquiries about him.

Glad he now has a forever home. Also, he has a fenced-in yard too, which was mandatory for this energy-plus, little guy!
