10/4/14 – On September 17, 2014 we received this e-mail from:
“I just rescued a puppy Friday who was listed Free on Craig’s List. Come to find out, he has never seen a vet (no shots or neutering), and he was diagnosed with Dermodedic Mange. His whole body is covered in pinkish red sores, and they have begun to open up. The vet we took him to says the fees for Mange treatment will run about $80 with meds and observation, and I was wondering if there was any way you might be able to help with that? I will hopefully get him caught up on shots and hold off neutering til he is healthier. Our main concerns are the skin and his weight. I am hoping we can keep him.” ~ Kathleen
10/4/14 Good Morning! Our good friend and Board member, Dee Gudenau, and her husband, Rick, are involved in a large TNR project and in the process have rescued adoptable kittens. Here is the story: ~ diana

10/3/14 Joy Update! – Dr. Kern from “Pawsitive Steps Rehabilitation Therapy for Pets” (http://www.pawsitivestepsrehab.com/ ), offered to help Joy with some therapy. She did acupuncture and cold laser on Joy tonight after assessing her pain. She has offered to donate physical therapy for Joy once or twice a week!! We are so thankful for her expertise, her skill, her support, and especially her compassion. Aaron Fortin from NBS Rescue was also involved in assisting with the therapy tonight. He was giving Joy all kinds of loving and comforting her during the procedure.
Dr. Kern adopted the famous “Hercules” from us a couple years ago after his legs had been intentionally broken by his previous owner at 3 months old. Hercules went from not being able to use his back legs at all, to running and playing and walking again! Just amazing!!! I think Dr. Kern might have fallen in love just a weee bit with Joy during her session! ~ gina
10/2/14 – Sonic is doing well today. His feeding tube is helping, and the inside of his mouth is healing slowly. We don’t know about the vision in his right eye, but we are hoping when the swelling goes down he will see out of that eye. The 2 incisions on his abdomen are looking great and the body wall is staying closed. He requires tube feeding every 4 hours and meds. Everyone at the hospital absolutely adores Sonic because he is the biggest lover with the strongest will to survive! ♡
10/2/14 – As our friends know, we often get requests for help from our rescue friends and other animal advocates. This is Peaches. She was adopted to a family a while back. The family has since lost their home and found out that Peaches has a tumor. Now Peaches is once again looking for that forever family. 4 Paws 1 Heart is happy to help with medical dollars although not as much as we normally would because of the pending medical bills we will have for Joy, Sonic, Paris, Lucy and Cleo; as well as the many others we continue to help with medication, vetting, and fixing. Anyone interested in this older beauty should contact Better Life Canine Center. ~ diana
10/2/14 – Happy Lunch Hour! Unfortunately, we have been notified of another sweet and loyal pet left behind. Although we are not into drama and judgement, let me just say that whoever did this to this poor baby, deserves the same–threefold. This little guy was found, 1 WEEK LATER, locked in a garage after the renters left the property. The homeowner found an empty water (?) bowl and an empty bag of cat food. The homeowner let the cat out and he’s been fed by the neighbors since. The little guy is scared and keeps trying to get back into the house where he used to live. He is still outside making his home on the window ledge. If anyone can take him in as a foster or adopter, please contact Jo at email@example.com; he has been named Elvis. 4 Paws 1 Heart will be happy to have him vetted and neutered. ~ diana 10/2/14 Update: Elvis is now with a foster.
