Louie – The Owner Could No Longer Care For Him After an Accident and Was Being Surrendered to a Shelter

3/28/19 – Meet Louie. We think he will be officially adopted this weekend! His back story is that while a great rescue friend was at the Humane Society with Samson, another rescue, Louie was being brought in and surrendered by his owner’s family. The owner fell while she was walking him and could no longer keep him. She had adopted him only 3 weeks prior when he was surrendered to the Monroe MHS. Louie had been badly neglected by his original owner and was covered in matted fur, overgrown toenails that caused sores on his paw pads, and he has severe separation anxiety due to being left in a crate for up to 18 hours a day. His recent owner loved him dearly and cried so hard when she had to give him up, but she is older and cannot keep him as she will be in a rehab center for many months. The family surrendered Louie to our friend, Shayla, and she promised to find him the perfect home! We were happy to help with his medical needs. ~ diana

Max – His Owner Passed Away and He Was Thrown Out to Fend for Himself

3/27/19 – Meet Max. His owner passed away and the owner’s children tossed him out into the backyard. After 3 weeks of fending for himself outside, a neighbor contacted an individual rescuer who we assist quite a bit and she contacted us. Max is scheduled to see a vet and a groomer this week complements of 4 Paws 1 Heart. We will have more information about him after he sees a vet. Word has it that he was an absolute lap dog with his elderly owner. Anyone interested can private message me and I will put you in contact with the rescuer. ~ diana

Blaz – Showed Up in the “Right” Yard, Found to be Heart Worm Positive

UPDATE:  Our good friends who live in the Traverse City, MI area will be adopting Blaz after his heart worm treatment is completed.

blaz 3:26:19 blaz-3:26:19 blaz--3:26:19 blaz==3:26:193/26/19 – Blaz showed up in Alanda’s yard. She was told to contact us for help. Of course, we had Blaz seen as soon as we could and he was found to be heart worm positive. Blaz was very emaciated and also had an infection, parasites, and needs to be neutered. The doctor wants him to put on a little weight before heart worm treatment starts. Poor Alanda only knows about cats and has been searching every where to find placement with a rescue. Unfortunately, with 80+ dogs recently found in Macomb County in just two homes, every rescued is stretched to the limits.
We have committed to Blaz’s medical care and Alanda is doing her best to care for Blaz with advice from Gina. Alanda says that Blaz is a very sweet dog. Please contact Alanda at: alanda.mc@gmail.com if you can help with placement. ~ diana

Miko – RIP – Rescued by a Board Member After His Mom Went Into Hospice

3/24/19 – RIP Miko – A very difficult week-end of saying good-byes. Our Board member, Cynthia, focuses on providing a home for those seniors left without a home. Miko was one of those. Miko was about 17-18 years old and two years ago his owner went into hospice and there was no one who could take him in to provide love and shelter. Somehow, Cynthia learned of his plight and took him in. Yesterday, Cynthia had to make the decision we all fear the most — to let him pass to the Rainbow Bridge. Thank You, Cynthia, for taking Miko in and giving him lots of love while he grieved for his mom. Now he is with his mom and they are both in heaven together. ~ diana

Anyone interested in adopting him should contact carolynrc2013@gmail.com
Thanks, Diana

mj w:dee gud 3:18:19 mj w:dee g 3:18:19“Meet MJ. MJ is from our work feral colony and is staying with me for a round of antibiotics. 10 days since the URI was noticed, a period of MIA from MJ that scared us to death, and 5 claw holes in my hand when I tried to get her… Andra Nagaitis-Shipleycat whisper superwoman picked very skinny MJ up and put her in a crate and brought her to me, last night, to stay in our garage. By the grace of God, she allowed me to give her meds. 4 Paws 1 Heart already offered to cover her medical but why stress her out if she is cooperating….MJ is doing better already in just 24 hours with meds!

It would be super awesome if she could have a home of her own….she loves to be petted now!!! She will need a little work but it wouldn’t take much….just some love. Please contact me if you are interested in MJ or if a Rescue would be….she deserves a home of her very own. dgudenau@gmail.com ”
