1/27/18 – A huge thank you to Emily for taking in sweet Emily. – Diana
“1/26/19 – Remember our sweet Alley who is feline leukemia positive and needed her eyes removed? She’s all healed up and her fur has mostly grown back in. So, of course this calls for some studio time!
Thank you to all who donated for our gorgeous girl. She is MUCH happier and feeling better without the pain from her eyes. She’s making her way around the house without any trouble, and she even plays now. An extra special thank you goes to Diana Rascano and 4 Paws 1 Heart for covering Alley’s surgery. We are so grateful for all of the help. Alley has a wonderful life now because of the amazing people in our lives! – Emily”
1/25/19 – An update on Gina’s miracle babies – Ali (aka Bentley), Nugget, and Binx. Without Gina’s heart and the support of our donors, these beautiful animals would not be here today. – diana
“1/24/19 – Spent the day visiting 3 of my many favorite 4 paws 1 heart MIRACLE babies. Stella (aka Nugget), a newborn puppy I raised from birth. Her mom passed away because a baby from the litter was stuck inside of her and she went septic. Bentley (aka Ali), also raised from birth after suffering a traumatic leg injury that the previous owners claim was a result of getting smashed in a recliner, and Buster (aka Halloween Kitten), found in street on Halloween night with a broken leg, a terrible burn on his chest, hypothermic, and in shock. Nursed him back to life, and all 3 are in the most loving homes I could possibly ask for. It was a nice visit and a great day!!♡♡♡ THANK YOU ~ Gina”
1/24/19 – Katniss was a reminder of the inhumanity of mankind. Her rescue and recovery, though, was proof that there are more good people in this world than bad. From the caring woman who stopped in the cold rain to save s scared, broken animal to the great mom Katniss is with today – it took a village. – diana
1/23/19 – Update from Courtney’s Mom, our friend, Melanie Wittner.
“Thank you again for giving my son his best friend. Sean lives a lonely life, yes he has me and his brothers but since he only has a 30 word vocabulary at 23 years old he doesn’t get to come home from school and call his friends. Sean doesn’t get to go out like other kids because he gets confused and lost. Courtney has filled a hole that I would’ve never been able to. She understands his words that he doesn’t speak and doesn’t make fun of him when he sings to her. Without 4 paws I don’t know what or who Sean would have had to fill that missing piece.”
Thank YOU, Melanie and Sean, for giving Courtney the love she never had. ~ diana
Updated pic of “Binx” formerly known as “Halloween Kitten”. He is doing great and his mommy loves him so much♡Gina
1/23/19 – My husband, Tony, has played an integral role in the work of 4 Paws 1 Heart. He delivers donated food and supplies to rescuers and shelters, he runs to the bank and the post office, works the fundraisers, etc. And, yesterday, the two of us went to visit our friends at the Wedding Shoppe in Berkley. The Wedding Shoppe has chosen 4p1h as their Charity Partner for December and January. Shawn Spears-Vilk, who we’ve assisted with her rescues, has been our avid supporter. The Wedding Shoppe is absolutely amazing. Their gowns are like nothing I’ve seen. It made me want to go back 46 years and get married all over again. I would encourage anyone looking for a wedding gown to make the Wedding Shoppe your first stop.
On our way home, Tony and i once again talked about how one of the best things to come out of the 4p1h journey (besides assisting over 5500 animals) has been the wonderful, kind, and caring people we have met along the way — many of whom have become dear friends. Here is Shawn, Michelle, and I in front of the ‘Paw Wall’ and some of the kitties we have helped Shawn with. In fact, Michelle is the proud mom of two of them. ~ diana
1/21/19 – RIP Fatboi. It was almost 4 years ago that we were asked to help. He had a kidney and ear infection, gastritis, and the beginning of arthritis. He was much loved and this past weekend he passed away. We will see you at the Rainbow Bridge sweet boy. ~ diana
