2/22/18 – This little beauty was found on the streets by an independent rescuer responsible for saving dozens of cats who have been abandoned and left to fend for themselves. Mandy was found in a feral colony but she was not feral and appeared to be very sick. We approved Mandy’s medical visit and here is the report from her rescuer – diana
“She had a really bad cold, sinus and eye infections when I picked her up off the streets. Now she has roundworms. Without the help of 4 paws she would not have made it through the worst of the winter. Thank you for your help. – Francine”
Anyone interested in adopting Mandy should contact: firstname.lastname@example.org
2/20/18 – Rocco was found running the streets. The rescuer tried finding an owner but no one came forward to claim him. Rocco was taken to the vet where it was found that he was heart worm positive. Although the initial vet care was covered by the rescuer, she could not afford the heart worm treatment and neutering at a later time. We were happy to make it possible for Rocco to have a second chance and live in a loving home. ~ diana
2/19/18 – Meet the Spice Family. We received a call from our friends at 313 K-9 and Kitty Rescue. They had rescued a mama and her 5 newborn kittens that were found as strays. One kitten had developed some pus-filled bumps on her and there was a concern that it could spread because one kitten had died that evening. We were happy to have them seen by the doctor at Five Mile Veterinary and it was found that the the pus-filled bumps, had been caused by a bite infection from the mom. That baby was treated and is doing well as is everyone else. Their names are Spice (mama), Hazel, Cinnamon, Ginger, and Chili. If you are interested, please contact 313. Can you imagine what would have happened to this family if not for the rescue and the donations to 4 Paws 1 Heart? Please consider donating today. Every day we get several calls for help and we can only do what our purse will afford. Donations can be made using the link on the left side of this page or by mail at P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI . 48080. Thank YOU – Diana
2/17/18 – More lives changed because of 4 Paws 1 Heart and the phenomenal friends we’ve made along the way. May they find their forever homes some day soon. – diana
“Dee Brown Gudenau added 4 new photos.
Plan A wasn’t happening…I was contacted by a previous adopter (I’ll call her AK) concerning 6 cats that needed to find a rescue due to the owner has dimentia and her daughter needed help rehoming them. I contacted 4 Paws 1 Heart and agreed to have my back for updating their shots, snap test and wellness visit. AK meriaculously found a rescue Providing for Paws that had a foster that would take ALL OF THEM! So…Thursday morning vetting, take them back to their home, and pick them back up Saturday and deliver them to Nadine Pyne-Dochenetz the foster. PERFECT PLAN! so we thought…..
After a lot of Blood (mine), Sweat (hubby’s & mine) and Tears (of joy once they all were in carriers) we were on our way to Rescue Vet. I said to hubby….”Hubby, there is NO way I’m going to be able to get them in carriers Saturday again NO WAY” so plan B it is! Texted Nadine – she could take them after 4 (an hour away from us) – great. Texted the daughter that I wasn’t coming back with them – FINE! Text my boss – need a full day vaction instead of half- OK! They were purrfect, sweet angels at the vet….all tested negative! All on their way to their new chapter in their lives! Thank you all, 4 Paws 1 Heart, AK, Nadine Pyne-Dochenetz and Providing for Paws and most of all my hubby….who helped during capture, transport and my life.
Please contact Providing for Paws for adoption info. The kitties, the vet determined are 3 years old.”
2/16/18 – Dakota (on the left) found himself at a local municipal shelter, heart worm positive. As I’ve said many times, municipal shelters are not funded to care for animal’s medical needs, especially something as serious as heart worm. Consequently, Dakota was scheduled to be euthanized. But, before that happened, 313 K9 and Kitty Rescue contacted us to see if we could cover Dakota’s heart worm treatment. If yes, they could pull Dakota. And, because of the generosity of our supporters,the answer was ‘yes’. Dakota started his treatment yesterday. Let’s pray his treatment goes well and he goes on to living a healthy, loved life. ~ diana
2/14/18 – Happy Valentine’s Day! Gizmo is officially being adopted into his new home today. Fritz, his new big brother, was adopted on Valentine’s Day 2 years ago. They were both given a second chance thanks to 4 Paws 1 heart paying for their medical care. I fostered both of them as little bitty babies and I watched them grow into strong boys.
This is where your donations go ♡ so thank you so much for all of your support, and thank you for Lisa Madding and Scott Madding for giving these boys the loving home they deserve. ♡ Gina
2/13/18 – He showed up in a cat community but Calvin was not feral — just scared. He also had a wound on his hind leg. We were happy to send Calvin to our favorite doctors at Patterson Veterinarian where Calvin was tested, neutered, vaccinated, and treated for his wound. Intact animals left to fend for themselves in the wild are targets for fights and rape. A whole different dynamic occurs when everyone is spayed/neutered. Anyone interested in adopting Calvin should contact: email@example.com ~ diana
