Louie – Wandering the Streets But When the Owner Was Found, He Was No Longer Wanted

7/9/19 – Reminder that we have two huge fundraisers happening now. First — vote every day to help us win $5,000 in the Free Star Financial Charity contest, Second, a $1,000 match for all donations received between now and July 15,2019.

In the mean time we are taking multiples calls a day requesting for animals found on the streets. Louie is one of them. A kind woman who we had helped before with two rescued kittens, found a very matted Louie wandering on the street. She was able to find his owner but the owner no longer wanted him. A signed surrender was officially obtained and the rescuer had Louie groomed and contacted our Board member, Denise, who contacted me. Louie was seen yesterday for a wellness exam and will be vaccinated, tested and neutered today. Louie does have cataracts but he is a bundle of energy. He gets along with cats, dogs, and kids and is house trained and knows some commands. After further discussion with the prior owner, it appears that this poor little guy has been passed around a lot. Louie needs a foster/forever home. Contact Denise at: deenajera@yahoo.com – thanks, diana

Cinnamon – Abandoned at a Bus Stop

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

Vinny – RIP – May Have Been Poisoned

6/24/19 – RIP Vinny. Life on the streets is not an easy one for innocent animals. Vinny was a community cat born on the porch of a independent rescuer we have helped before. He collapsed the other night on her porch, totally jaundiced. Vinny was the second community cat to show up in the past week who was severely ill. The rescuer is concerned that someone may be poisoning cats. We approved to have him seen by one of our partner vets who immediately started him on fluids and ran tests. Unfortunately, Vinny did not make it. Outside of him being found to be FeLV positive, there was no other definitive diagnosis. He is now running free and pain free. ~ diana

Rosie Roo – Remembering Her Life

6/18/19 – The sweetest dog I’ve ever met. Rosie, you will always be in our hearts. ~ diana

“CHANCE: Goood morning Team Chance, as promised we’re going to share with you pics & stories of our beloved Roo. The top left pic is the one mom saw on Facebookunder For the Love of Louie *Michigan Lost Pet Lookers* that her finder posted that she found this lost dog. That was on Oct 5th, 2016. The look on that poor babys face haunted mom all night, she kept going back to that post and looking at that little face. Mom saw later that night that animal control had picked her up. Mom started messaging animal Control about her status, and at the same time she sent the pic to Auntie Di at 4 Paws 1 Heart with a simple message “Please call me re: this dog”. Of course Auntie Di called mom 1st thing in the morning. AUNTIE DI: “What would you like to do?”
MOM: “Go get her & foster her”.
Auntie Di without hesitation said “if they will give her to you, get her.” And with that, arrangements were made with the wonderful Animal Control Officer Lisa Taylor, and Auntie Debra & Mom brought Roo home. That 1st night she slept on the floor next to moms bed..Her nails were so long and spiraled she could barely walk, her fur was sooo matted. Pew!!! Did she ever stink!!! It was terrible!!! And that was how she got her name…Rosie⚘, Mom wanted to name her as far opposite of what she smelled like then..what she would be not what she smelled like then. The next morning when mom took her to the groomers…a very sneaky & sweet Auntie Anne Sadowski had already been to the groomer & paid for Rosie Roos grooming . The bottom pic is after Roo came home smelling sweet, all soft, clean & comfy sleeping that 1st sleep of knowing life was about to change for her!!! – Mom”rosie roo 6:18:19

Daegan – Kicked Out by His Owner – Needs a Rescue/Adopter.

6/18/19 – Daegan showed up in Nicole’s backyard and she actually found his owner. When she brought Daegan ‘home’, the owner threw him out of the house and said he didn’t want him. Daegan is only 6 months old and is very sweet. I received a call from one of our veterinary partners asking if we could cover his vaccines and health check, which, of course we did. Because Nicole already has dogs who are not thrilled with an ‘interloper’, she is in desperate need of finding a rescue or adopter for Daegan. He is scheduled for neutering, complements of 4p1h, next week. Anyone interested in this handsome boy, should contact Nicole at: ncisco1227@yahoo.com
Without you, we couldn’t do what we do. ~ diana

Samson – Bought from a Guy on the Street

6/14/19 – A good friend of 4p1h, who is always there to help an animal in need, came across a man trying sell a 4-week old puppy. He kept yelling at the puppy to “shut up” while the puppy laid on the early April, cold cement. Shelley could think of nothing other than to buy the puppy to save him from an unknown, potentially dangerous fate. Before she did that, though, she contacted us to see if we would cover the medical and of course we said yes. Samson was taken to the vet and he was given a wellness exam and dewormed; he was too young for any vaccines. After contacting some animal rescues, Rebel Dogs Detroit agreed to take in Samson where he will be well taken care of. It truly takes a village. – diana
