7/3/19 UPDATE: Cinnamon is having surgery on her tail today. She was seen yesterday. We’ll get an update later.
7/2/19 – Please say a little prayer for this very sweet dog. A very kind man was picking up his daughter at a bus stop and two people drove up and said they were being evicted and let the dog out of the car and drove off. The man took the dog home and contacted Animal Control who referred him to us for help. Cinnamon had a swollen paw and was chewing at her tail. The family, who couldn’t afford a vet visit, put a cone on her in hopes of keeping her away from her tail. The swelling in her paw got better but the tail was a concern. Unfortunately, one day she hid in the rescuer’s garage and it appears she chewed her tail off. She will be seen by our great doctors at Patterson and hopefully we can find out what happened. It is obvious that Cinnamon had been neglected by her previous owners. Here are before and after photos. ` diana

“Ahhhh, it’s good to be King! And it’s good to be able to walk, climb & jump!!! You know that clubhouse on my page that say CHANCE on it? Mom made that for me out of the box that this Cat Tree sent to us by Auntie Debi & Uncle Dave came in. Know why? Cus she felt terrible that all the other cats had something new to play with and I couldnt climb up here cus I couldnt walk. Mom says it broke her heart to see everybody having fun but me. Mom put a lot of love into that SuperHero Clubhouse and I adored it!!! And all the other cats came to play with me in it. But that Cat Tree was incentive, and look at me now!!! That’s what happens when dedicated individual fosters Team up with 4 Paws 1 Heart, miracles happen!!!
By the way, if you didnt see the update on Isaac’s post..Auntie Di approved an emergency visit to one of our fave vets and Isaac has a pretty serious UTI which is not uncommon with paraplegic cats. He was given antibiotics & anti inflammatory meds and has a recheck in a week.
Well Team, this King is getting ready to go snuggle with his Queen Mother!!! 😉 Sweet dreams everybody, see you in the morning. Love, purrs & woofs ❤ Chance & the Gang
6/25/19 – Happy Update – It was early May when Belfor was rescued by a kind man while he was working on an electric circuit. Belfor was skin and bones and his hip bone kept popping out. Efforts were made to find an owner but none could be found. Belfor was taken to the vet where is hip issue was treated but he was found to be heart worm positive. That’s when we were called in to help. Belfor has completed his treatment and the only thing left is another visit to confirm the hear worm has gone. He has gained weight, has his energy back, is being taken for walks in the park and just made a new friend. The neighbors recently rescued a dog and the couples are positive the dogs must have known each other before because they have become best friends. Look at the difference that medical treatment and love can do in just a little more than 6 weeks.
As anyone knows, who has had the misfortune of a pet being diagnosed with heart worm, heart worm treatment is very expensive but it can be avoided by providing year-round preventative. As they say in the commercials, it only takes one mosquito to infect your dog with the deadly worms.
We have helped with several heart worm dogs, broken legs, and eye removals this past Spring– not to mention all of the neuters/spays. Without the support of our donors and our community businesses, these animals would not have a chance. We are sincerely thankful; but, as always, must ask that if you find yourself with a little extra money, please consider making a donation to save a life. ~ diana
