Dear Jon,

Are you beginning to look forward to 2019 yet? Our good friends at the Discovering Doris fan website are ready. They have once again produced a very special calendar to benefit the Doris Day Animal Foundation. The calendar is printed in Great Britain on a strictly limited print run. They always sell out fast, so be sure to order now, exclusively from Discovering Doris!

Stephen, founder of Discovering Doris explains, "This is our 12th edition, featuring some rare photos and other adorable images of Doris with her four-legged friends from the Peter C. Borsari Photo Archive. Thanks to your support, our little fund-raising project has raised over $40,000 in donations for the Doris Day Animal Foundation."

The calendar's images were professionally scanned from original photographic prints, transparencies or negatives. Printing was done by the family-run printing firm, White Hart Press of Bedford, England.

Dear Jon,

Can you believe it? We're getting ready for the holidays again!

The tree will need decking soon enough, so why not get ahead of the holiday rush and order the official 2018 Doris Day Animal Foundation holiday ornament today? This year's design is a DDAF favorite: Lovely Doris from her cover shoot for The Love Album, on a wintery blue ornament.  We can already hear "Silver Bells" playing in the background!

Buy one for yourself, another for a Doris Day fan or animal-loving friend!

And why stop there? We know this season is the busiest time of year for many of you. So do take this opportunity to check a few holiday gifts off your list at the DDAF online store. All profits benefit DDAF and the 4-leggers!

All our best,
The DDAF Team

Dear Supporter,

As you may know, I've never been very keen on celebrating birthdays. The years go by too fast, and no one likes the idea of being older. I've always thought age is just a number and has little to do with how we feel. But, it's true, I'll be 90 next April -- I can hardly believe it!

So I thought I'd look for a new way to mark the occasion. I wanted to do something special for all of you, my fans and friends who have been so devoted all these years. Something celebratory to bring you together, and something that would warm my heart as well.

I asked my team at the Doris Day Animal Foundation and my gang at the Cypress Inn here in Carmel to come up with something really wonderful. We know many of you regularly gather at the Cypress on my birthday. So today we're delighted to expand on your annual tradition and to invite you all to join in A Sentimental Journey: a three-night package at the Cypress Inn, with the whole weekend benefitting DDAF!

The package includes:

  • Three nights' accommodation at my charming Cypress Inn, here in Carmel by-the-Sea, April 3, 4, and 5, 2014
  • A commemorative welcome gift bag containing exclusive Doris Day and DDAF goodies and memorabilia
  • A daily breakfast buffet
  • Invitation to a pet fashion show, hosted by the Cypress and featuring some of our local four-leggers and darling pet boutiques
  • Live entertainment on the evening of April 3, with pianist Jim Martinez and singer Laura Didier
  • Tickets to my official birthday celebration dinner on April 4, which will also include live entertainment, surprise guests, a silent auction, and a raffle for a chance to win autographed, personal memorabilia from my own collection

The Cypress Inn is offering very special rates for this event. A single occupancy room for the weekend package is $995. Double occupancy is $1,195. A generous portion of the proceeds from all of these activities will go right to DDAF. And, since the birthday gift I'd like most is to continue to help as many four-leggers as possible, your joining in this celebration will be the very best gift of all.

To be a part of the memories, please call the Cypress Inn at 1-800-443-7443 and ask for the Sentimental Journey package. Space is very limited, and room selection is on a first come, first served basis. Prices include all taxes and gratuities.

I hope you'll consider visiting Carmel in April to help us celebrate. But if you're not able to join us, don't you worry! We'll soon be announcing plenty of activities, new releases, and interactive features on both the DorisDay.com and DDAF.org websites as we get closer to my birthday. So stay tuned!

All my love,

Doris Day Animal Foundation Grant for World Spay Day Helps Subsidize Spay/Neuter Costs

WASHINGTON (Feb. 17, 2012)— In celebration of World Spay Day, The Humane Society of the United States’ Pets for Life program announced it will work with local partners to provide $75,000 in free pet spay/neuter services in underserved communities. The services will be provided throughout February as a result of a generous World Spay Day grant to The HSUS from the Doris Day Animal Foundation.

“Thanks to the Doris Day Animal Foundation, we are able to do even more this month to extend the critical services provided by our local animal welfare partners to even more people and pets who need them most,” said Cory Smith, senior director for Pets for Life. “This funding will help us build more humane communities and improve overall companion animal health and welfare by providing life-changing assistance for pet owners who cannot afford or access to these essential services.”

Pets for Life is an ongoing program that extends the reach of animal welfare services, resources and information to people and pets in underserved communities. In addition to funding the services, The HSUS’ PFL program helps communities effectively target resources to pet owners who would otherwise be overlooked. PFL also helps to provide transportation when needed, and conducts in-depth follow up to ensure that each scheduled spay/neuter appointment is positive and successful.

The following is a list of Spay/Neuter events being sponsored by Pets for Life:

Atlanta:

  • The HSUS’ Pets for Life Atlanta program and LifeLine Animal Project are holding a “Free Fix for Pits” campaign throughout February to provide free spay/neuter services for 100 pit bull type dogs from Fulton, DeKalb, and Clayton counties. PFL Atlanta will also sponsor $4000 worth of cat sterilizations for low-income owners and feral cats at Furkids throughout February.

Chicago:

  • Pets for Life Chicago and PAWS Chicago’s Lurie Clinic will sponsor spay/neuter surgeries throughout February for pit bull type dogs and other animals from underserved communities.
  • On Feb. 28 PFL Chicago will host a World Spay Day celebration at PAWS Chicago’s Lurie Clinic where they will provide spay/neuter information and offer free surgeries for animals from select zip codes.
  • PFL Chicago will sponsor spay/neuter surgeries at The Anti-Cruelty Society for underserved pet owners from the Pullman, Pilsen and North Lawndale communities. These owners signed up for the surgeries at vaccine clinics in their communities, done in collaboration with Chicago Animal Care & Control, the ASPCA, Safe Humane Chicago, PAWS Chicago and the Anti-Cruelty Society, as well as the alderman in each of the communities.
  • PFL Chicago and Chicagoland Bully Breed Rescue will offer free spay/neuter surgeries at the Woodlawn Animal Hospital in South Side Chicago for persons who cannot otherwise afford the service for their pets. 

Los Angeles:

  • Pets for Life Los Angeles, the Found Animals Foundation and Spay LA will host a one-day mobile free spay/neuter, vaccination and microchip clinic in Boyle Heights on Feb. 26.
  • PFL Los Angeles will also sponsor vaccines and sterilization surgeries at the Spay Neuter Project of Los Angeles clinic in Van Nuys from Feb. 27-29.

Philadelphia:

  • Pets for Life Philadelphia will sponsor free spay/neuter and vaccination services provided by the Pennsylvania SPCA and the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society for low-income pet owners during the month of February, most reached through HSUS community outreach efforts.
  • PFL Philadelphia will also sponsor spay/neuter surgeries of animals brought into clinics by local trap neuter return groups throughout the month of February.
