Felix and Singleton – One Older and One Two-Week Old Kitten – Both Rescued Needing Medical Assistance

8/13/18 – Sunday was a busy day for 4 Paws 1 Heart and our good friend, Denise Najera. We are so thankful for the many people who don’t turn their backs on these lost and abandoned souls, for our many knowledgeable friends, and especially for our supporters whose donations make this all possible. ~ diana

“CHANCE: Could you possibly find 2 cuter faces anywhere??? Sooo, we thought it was going to be a pretty uneventful, quiet Sunday…but nope!
Auntie Cynthia & Auntie Debra came & left with their supplies…all good.
Then mom gets a worried text about this adorable orange kid that we told you about last night that was literally rescued out of the woods in the middle of know where. Felix has obviously been out there a while. He was loaded with fleas, thin, missing a couple teeth, and has an ear thats very scarred from either animal attack or severe frostbite. His Rescuer needed some help assessing him to see if his situation was urgent. So he came to our house!!! Mom took care of his immediate needs which was his flea infestation, assessed him and determined he would be fine for tonight. His rescuer says hes eating like a champ the food mom sent last night.
Then mom got an email from Auntie Di about this little gray angel named Singleton and his foster also needed a bit of help getting the baby to eat & poo so he also came over to our house today with his foster mom! Mom got some formula & Miralax into him. He also has a wound to his neck, a puncture we’re not sure what it is. Botfly maybe, or animal. But Singleton is very sweet, playful and mom also cut his little razor nails and supplied his foster mom with extra formula, feeding syringes & a Miracle Nipple.
Both of these sweet, sweet kittys will be seen tomorrow at the vets thanks to 4 Paws 1 Heart and the amazing, wonderful humans who could not turn their back when an animal needed their help We’ll keep you posted!
Hopefully we can all get some mom time now and relax till nitenite time 😊🐱🐱😍”felix 8:12:18 singleton 8:12:18

Bubba – Found on the Streets and Would Have Been Euthanized

Meet “4 Paws 1 Heart”, “Bubba”. He was found on the streets and after his stray hold we took him in. Bubba is adorable, kind, and so gentle. He will have a great life from now on. It started when I saw him in a cage and in a fetal position shaking to death. He was a stray and he wouldn’t make eye contact…just literally terrified. I had to help him no matter what.
No one claimed him.
I just adore him. ♡ He is good with animals, people, and everyone he meets. Bubba is being treated for mange, he is being vaccinated, and he is gaining more confidence and happiness every day. ~ ginabubba 8:11:18

Dolly Purrton, Fuzz Aldren, Steve Purrwin – Emergency Rescue from a Barn

8/11/18 – RIP Sweet Dolly Purrton and Fuzz Aldren. Once again, our friend Andra, was called to the barn (where she plans to conduct TNR with our help) to help 3 kittens who were in very rough shape. She responded immediately and the kittens were taken to one of our vets where they received medications. The kittens were very weak and emaciated. Andra syringed fed them and tried very hard but Fuzz passed away Tuesday night in the arms of Andra, and last night Dolly passed. They are no longer in pain and thankfully died knowing love and not in a hot barn. Please say a prayer for the remaining kitten, Steve Purrwin. ~ diana

8/12/18 Update – Unfortunately, Steve Purrwin also passed away. ~ dianadolly purrton, fuzz Aldren, Steve Purrwin 8:11:18

Rosie Roo – Needs Your Prayers

8/9/18 Continued Prayers for Rosie Roo. – diana

“Hi everybody…I’m home! Sooo, Dr. Z let me come home becuse I was doing better and hadn’t had any eeeewy pooey while I was there.
So I had IV meds & injections today, and some other testing and 3 meds to have at home and we’ll see how I do tonight. Staying overnight at the emergency hospital on IV meds was discussed but Dr. Z & mom both agreed I wouldn’t be happy, or get any rest there, I wouldn’t eat and would be continually barking for mom. Sooo, the plan is we see how I do tonight and if I’m still feeling yucky I go back early in the morning and am admitted for the day again for IV meds. If I do feel better tomorrow then I will go in and have my IV port that’s hiding under this pretty purple wrap removed. Let’s all pray for removal please, Cus Dr. Z is thinking it’s one of 2 things. Either it’s a really mean bacterial infection and this power regimen of meds are going to fix it, or the meds dont help and then we’re looking at the C word.
So, I ate my dinner with my new meds mixed in. I’ve got 1 more med to take tonight…and hopefully we all get a better nights rest then last night. Please keep me in your prayers and it sure would help with my mounting vet Bill’s if you are able to make a donation to 4 Paws 1 Heart at 4paws1heart.org/donations/ and in the message box put “For Rosie” As of right now my Bill’s for the last couple weeks are right around $1000.00 and if I get better I still have my dental scheduled for the 29th. One thing I know for sure mom and 4 Paws 1 Heart will ALWAYS do what’s best for me. But I sure hope I get better cus I dont like it when my mom crys. She says its pepper got in her eyes, but I know its cuz she loves me so much ❤-Rosie Roo”

Izzy and Babies – Found in a Vacant Home

8/9/18 – While cleaning out an abandoned home, Izzy and her four babies were rescued by a kind man. Izzy was very malnourished and showed little interest in her kittens — probably because she was so sick with an upper respiratory infection. Izzy was seen immediately by one of our great vets and the whole family is being fostered by their rescuer and will be available for adoption. 4 Paws 1 Heart has committed to everyone’s medical needs when ready. If you are interested in adopting, please contact: cortney.kleinter@outlook.com – dianaizzy 7:17:18 Izzy and babies 8:9:18 Izzy and babies--8:9:18 Izzy baby---8:9:18 izzy baby 8:9:18

Fundraising – Donations are Slow but the Medical Needs are High

8/9/18 – It is that time of the year when donations are very, very slow but the need remains very high. In just the past 3 weeks, we have had two parvo cases, a heart worm case, several cases of upper respiratory infections, and just the usual vaccines, flea treatments, spays, and neuters. But we can’t do it without the support of our friends. If you can help, donations can be made on our website: www.4paws1heart.org OR by mail at P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI 48080 OR by using the donate link on the left side of this page. Thank you in advance. ~ diana

Rosie Roo – Needs Your Prayers

8/8/18- Senior Lady, Rosie Roo, is one of the animals 4 Paws 1 Heart committed to helping until that time her quality of life is at stake. Rosie is on a special diet and her rescue mom works hard to ensure Rosie’s dietary needs are always met. With the help of 4 Paws 1 Heart, Rosie has had almost every tooth removed and if she gets through this current crisis, she will need more dental work. Unfortunately, Rosie has had bouts of diarrhea and has been under doctor’s care but recently the stool has had considerable blood in it. Rosie was seen today by one of our favorite doctors and she suggested we try a different round of medications but also said that she suspects Rosie has glaucoma. So, the doctor is going to run some tests and may also prescribe medication for that. All of this medical care comes with a significant cost but Rosie has been a fighter since she was rescued as a 15 year old dog, roaming alone on the streets. She is so very sweet and, other than her current medical issues, seems to be happy and enjoying her loving home. Please say a little prayer for Rosie and send some positive energy. ~ diana
