Carla – Paralyzed and Pulled for A Shelter Gets Ready for Her New Wheels

11/29/17 – When I say that our donors make miracles happen, I don’t use those words lightly. Carla is one such miracle, like her ‘uncle’ Chance, Carla was pulled from a shelter before being euthanized — her back legs were paralyzed. Carla has been working hard with Dr. Kern and her staff, as well as with her mom. She has gone through a lot including surgery for a bladder stone but she hasn’t let that stop her. Carla is starting to stand and now her next step may be a cart We all truly believe that she will be walking some day. Thank you for believing in 4 Paws 1 Heart. ~ diana

“Goood morning Team Chance, Happy #GivingTuesday!!! As you can see mom’s already got me up and in Uncle Chances wheels this morning while I do my morning birdie watching. Did you know Uncle Chance only used his cart for about a month before he was up and running around here without it? It was just a stepping stone for him, and we’re hoping for the same for me! And did you know it was donations from Team Chance that paid for Uncle Chances wheels? Your donations mean so much & go so far to making miracles happen! So on Giving Tuesday, please give what you can to show animals like me that we deserve our Second Chance. 4 Paws 1 Heart does not give up on special needs animals and we know you don’t either And thanks to an anonymous donor…all donations up to $1000.00 will be matched today through Dec 5th!!! Let’s show them how much Team Chance cares about the animals and give what you can, every dollar matters! Have a SuperHero kind of day & watch for updates of my visit with Dr. Kern later today! Love, Carla

Sabrina – Pulled, Very Ill, From a Shelter

11/25/17 – This is Sabrina. She was one of two kittens pulled from a shelter. She was very sick with a 94 degrees temperature. Sabrina required hospitalization and transfusions and the doctors thought she might not make it. But, with the help of Michigan’s Wayward Whiskers Cat Rescue (formerly known as Angels for Animals of MI), and 4 Paws 1 Heart, she fought death and is now doing good. Anyone interested in Sabrina should contact Erin at: miwaywardwhiskers@gmail.comsabrina 11:25:17

Saved by Zade Kittens – Found on the Side of a River- Critically Ill

11/20/17 – During this week of giving Thanks I would like to sincerely thank all of those who literally save the lives of animals who have been abandoned and abused. Very often they put their own lives on the line and if not their lives, their time, their money, their hearts. One such group is from Jackson, MI, Saved by Zade. I believe I reported on this very moving rescue when we were first contacted. A mom and 4 kittens, who had obviously been in someone’s home, had been found on the side of a river near a park and a fishing bridge. One kitten was covered in maggots and he eventually died, but not before the wonderful rescuers were able to bathe him and love him. He died in one of their arms. Another kitten, Helen, needed both eyes removed immediately and an amazing doctor at Snow Animal Health Care did this for free. Two other kittens needed eye removal; and we committed to helping with this surgery when the time came. They had their surgeries two weeks ago and are doing great.
As winter approaches, please say a little prayer each night for all of these animals who have either been born in the wild or who have been thrown out by their owners. And, please, do whatever you can to be a part of the solution – rescue, donate, foster, adopt. Thanks, diana

Belle – Her Tail was Wrapped with Rubber Bands

11/17/17 – This is Belle. Her tail was wrapped in rubber bands so that it would purposely fall off. People are so disgusting. And, now she needs to have her tail surgically removed to save her life. Although we continue to be low on funds, we are thankful to provide some help to the many rescues and rescuers who continue to give up so much to save these tortured and abused animals. Thank You to Bully Love Rescue. ~ dianabelle w:terissa kerr november:2017

Chance (II) – Update

11/17/17 – An update from Chance’s rescuer, Cortney.

chance - cortney kleiner 11:9:17chance w:cortney kleiner 11:9:17chance 11:9:17“It’s coming to be time for Chance’s checkup, just a recap for those that may have missed it, Chance had her liver enzymes retested at our last appointment, they were still elevated, she was also given an ultrasound to see if she was spayed. She is not spayed. However, her body is not stable enough to undergo surgery until her liver enzymes have decreased. She is fattening up and playing like a champ. In order to get her to the vet for a recheck we NEED donations to be directly donated to 4 Paws 1 Heart and note that it is for Chance. This organization does more than enough for everyone in my position that is trying to independently save animals without the proper resources. Tax time is coming around and your donations to 4 Paws 1 Heart IS TAX DEDUCTIBLE! We need your help to get Chance healthy! Look at her! She wants to live! – Cortney”

Mac – Almost Killed in a Shelter and Then Returned by His Adopter After He Ingests a Bead

11/11/17 – A Happy Update as we remember all of the veterans who have served our Country. ~ diana

“Mac was about 6 months old when he was intercepted by protesters at Michigan Anti-Cruelty back in February. He was vetted and went to a foster who planned to adopt. He ingested a bead from her dangling crystals lamp shade and it blocked his intestines. The new owner didn’t offer to pay a single dollar and said she would choose euthanasia over the expense of surgery so I, of course, took him back. He later went to that lady in St. Clair Shores whose check bounced. After a couple months she said he became jealous of the dog and aggressive if the dog was around. Again, Mac was returned. He had several meet and greets, but hadn’t found a home until Maria. She and her husband are smitten and it appears he is finally in his forever home. Thank you so much for helping with Mac’s medical bills and helping to find him a home by networking on Petfinder and making him the cover photo on the Friends of 4Paws1Heart page. Here are some before and after photos. – Lori”
