Ember – Tied Up With an Extension Cord in Front of a Firehouse

6/16/16 – We only have a little over 3 days left for our “Honor Your Father – Father’s Day Challenge” and we are $1,700 short of meeting the challenge. Please consider honoring your dad with a gift of life.

This is Ember. She was tied with an extension cord to a bench in front of Detroit Fire Department Engine 52/Ladder 31. The brave and caring firefighters brought her into the firehouse and bathed and fed her. They then contacedt Make A Difference Rescue who then contacted us for medical help. In her first visit to the vet, Ember was not only found to be suffering from Mange but she is also Heart Worm positive. 4 Paws 1 Heart paid for Ember’s initial treatments and will be paying for her heart worm treatment (estimated to be about $800). Ember 6:17:16--- ember 6:17:16 ember6:17:16++

This is what I mean when I say “Make a donation and save a Life” because that is what your donation does. With the exception of Gina’s telephone bill, all dollars donated go directly to paying veterinary bills. Please say a little prayer for Ember and for all of those men and women firefighters who risk their lives for not only humans but for those who have been left behind.

Ali – Continues to Get Stronger

6/16/16 – ali  6:17:16 ali6:17:16Little “Ali” is doing well tonight while we soak his leg in an antibiotic bath. Then we dry the area, apply a topical antibiotic, and then a bandage. This is a daily routine along with the feedings and neonatal care I’m providing around the clock. Things are healing very well. The wound is about halfway closed, and he is doing great otherwise. I hope his beautiful eyes will open soon; he turns 2 weeks old on Friday so any day now! Keep the prayers coming because they are certainly working! ♡ Gina

Isaac – Another Kitty Paralyzed

6/15/16 – The Father’s Day Challenge continues through Sunday, June 19, 2016. Every dollar donated will be matched by our generous supporter AND if we reach $2,500 in donations, we will be given an additional bonus. For many of us, our love for animals started with our kind dads, so please take advantage of this very special challenge and please share your Dad story with us.

In the meantime, I wanted to update everyone on our little Isaac. His back legs are paralyzed and once again, no one knows why. His rescuer, our Board member, Cynthia, has been taking Isaac to our great friend, Dr. Kern, at Pawsitive Steps Rehabilitation and Therapy for Pets. Cynthia has also been working with Isaac at home. Little ones like Isaac who are paralyzed also require other special needs because the body functions we all expect as normal, don’t always work without our help. Please continue to pray for little Isaac and consider donating during this special challenge. Without your donations, we could not take on these special cases.

Donations can be made through paypal by clicking on the donate link on this page, on our website, 4paws1heart.org or by mail at P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI 48080.isaac 6:15:16

Father’s Day Challenge – Have Your Donation Matched

6/14/16 – The Father’s Day Challenge! Once again, we have a generous benefactor who would like to match all donations made to 4 Paws 1 Heart from now until Father’s Day, June 19. The benefactor will not only match dollar for dollar through this period, but will also add a special bonus if our friends donate a total of $2,500. What a thoughtful way to honor our fathers who have given us unconditional love and support. My dad was only 18 when I was born and I thank God every day he is still with me to offer advice and, now, to just be a friend. He has three rescue cats who adore him and whom he adores; one of whom, he actually leash trained. I can’t think of a better Father’s Day gift, then a gift in honor of his love for animals; not to mention, all that he’s done for me. Donations can be made using the ‘donate’ paypal link on this page or on our website (4paws1heart.org) or by mail at P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI 48080. Please share and help us meet our goal. Your donations truly make miracles happen. (BTW, please share your favorite photo of you and your dad as a special honor). ~ diana13412924_1171255592906737_7917538709274553769_n

Kittens – Rescued and Forever Homes Found

6/14/16 – We do not discriminate as to the animals we help. As long as we have the funds, we will always be there to help any abandoned/stray companion animal. It just so happens that this time of year, the requests for help with kittens and moms are overwhelming. The positive is that there are so many kind and loving people who not only rescue but go through the arduous task of finding that purrfect, forever home. Here are five more babies helped by 4 Paws 1 Heart and saved by Alyssa G. All five have pending homes. One kitten will be going into a home with kitten buddies, and the other four are going into two homes. We love when siblings can remain together. I truly believe they know that they have that special bond that siblings have. ~ dianakittens 6:14:16 kittens 6:14:16** kittens6:14:16--

Unfortunately, the hospital couldn’t take in a feral but our friends at Furever Tails, gladly took them in. Anyone interested in these babies, should check out Furever Tails.kittens 6:13:16--- kittens```6:13:16 kittens==6:13:16 kittens--6:13:16 kittens 6:13:16

Ali – Continues His Fight to Live

6/12/16 Update on Ali (aka Tootsie)ali and angel 6:12:16This little fighter is amazing and beyond adorable. It is a blessing that his previous family dumped him because we are able to give him a chance to know what love is. Angel is watching over him as he nurses on my finger for comfort. His wounds from the reclining chair have not slowed him down and the leg is gradually healing. His 2 toes that were cut off are necrotic, but I guess that will need to be addressed later. Might need to consult with the MVS (Michigan State Veterinary Services) soft tissue specialist that helped our Sommerset. The actual injury is too graphic to post, but the “WILL” that this tiny puppy has leaves me speechless. He has to be bandaged every 24 hours with a shoulder strap because everything else would slide off. He is under 1 pound and just over 1 week old now. I want to thank Jamie, Carrie, Maria, Lianna, Maddie, and all of our supporters who have helped Ali. I will update again soon!!! ♡ Gina

Kittens – Rescued at 4 Weeks Old and Living Under a Mobile Home

6/12/16 – It’s that time of the year when donations tend to be at the lowest. The weather is beautiful — what’s the problem? Well this is the time of the year when cats and kittens are literally coming out of the woodwork, and every one of them needs our help. Whether it is simply spay/neuter or more serious like upper respiratory infections or serious injuries because they are fending for themselves on the streets. And, when it comes to dogs, this is the time of year for heart worm and puppies born with parvo. In line with our objective to be transparent as to what we do with your money, you may be seeing a lot of cat postings but we spend your money where it is needed. These little guys are getting ready for adoption. They were all rescued at about 4 weeks old — two were living under a mobile home and two were living under a crawl space. They will be neutered next week. All of their medical needs have been taken care of by 4 Paws 1 Heart. Anyone interested in adopted these little cuties should contact Patricia at pattib7355@aol.comkittens w:patriciabrown(6:12:16) kittensw:patriciabrown--6:12:16 kittensw:patriciabrown^^6:12:16 kittensw:patriciabrown6:12:16
