Autumn Leaves Fundraiser

As I think about all that’s transpired in the last few months for the planning of our “Autumn Leaves” I know that the Lord HAS done great things for Pets Uniting People Society. We are grateful. These days consist of emotional highs and lows, good news and bad news, but we continue our mission.

I love thanking everyone and there are many. However, no matter how much one gives or how many times a ‘thank you’ is given in return, none of us can out give God!

We (Pets Uniting People Society – P.U.P.S.) are “blessed beyond measure”…we give a HUGE thank you to all who helped this year and all will be listed in our year-end newsletter, PUPS Digest.

Signed…Carolyn, Pets Uniting People Society Director

This couple is the inspiration of the Pets Uniting People Society (PUPS) organization. They could not attend this year’s Autumn Leaves, but, hopefully, will be able to be at the 2021…10th Annual Autumn Leaves. Thank you, Andy and Susan!
Here’s Judy, another Board Member, who could not attend “Autumn Leaves” this year. She is the reason the organization was started to begin with…it was seeing her love of animals that got us going! Thanks, Judy!
Just three Pets Uniting People Society board members attended this year. We missed Susan and Judy and hopefully all will be able to attend the 2021 “Autumn Leaves” tentatively scheduled for Saturday, October 16, 2021.
