A rescue organization called Angel of Hope specializes in caring for babies that still need bottle feeding. PUPS often calls them when young puppies or kittens come in.

Angel of Hope President Laura Uecker said PUPS’ social media savvy helps them save more animals.

“By posting the animals available, including descriptions of their personalities, it really helps us know what’s there,” Uecker said.

“They do a good job of evaluating animals and disclosing if they have issues.”
