Rosie Roo – Needs Your Prayers

8/8/18- Senior Lady, Rosie Roo, is one of the animals 4 Paws 1 Heart committed to helping until that time her quality of life is at stake. Rosie is on a special diet and her rescue mom works hard to ensure Rosie’s dietary needs are always met. With the help of 4 Paws 1 Heart, Rosie has had almost every tooth removed and if she gets through this current crisis, she will need more dental work. Unfortunately, Rosie has had bouts of diarrhea and has been under doctor’s care but recently the stool has had considerable blood in it. Rosie was seen today by one of our favorite doctors and she suggested we try a different round of medications but also said that she suspects Rosie has glaucoma. So, the doctor is going to run some tests and may also prescribe medication for that. All of this medical care comes with a significant cost but Rosie has been a fighter since she was rescued as a 15 year old dog, roaming alone on the streets. She is so very sweet and, other than her current medical issues, seems to be happy and enjoying her loving home. Please say a little prayer for Rosie and send some positive energy. ~ diana

Hanson – Dumped on the Streets

hanson 8:2:188/2/18 – The other day (after I just wrote over $10,000 in checks to veterinaries) I received the following message:
“My girlfriend and I sometimes go down to Detroit and look for homeless dogs. Sometimes we just offer food and water, and other times we take them in and adopt them out to good families. Hanson is our 7th Detroit rescue. We went down to Detroit to look at the area we got our 6th rescue from (who we ended up keeping) and within 5 minutes, saw Hanson looking for food. He was a super friendly, but nervous boy. He took to my girlfriend right away as she fed him chicken nuggets and gave him water. I knocked on a few doors on the block and asked if Hanson belonged to anyone. All the neighbors said no, and then a man came out of the house on the corner and said “Do you want that dog?” to my girlfriend. She asked if it was his dog, and he said no, he saw him get dumped on the corner about 8 or 9 days ago, and he’d be hanging out ever since, obviously not knowing where to go, and hoping someone would come for him. When the man told us that he had been dumped, we knew we had to take him. We have 4 dogs at home, so we knew we couldn’t keep him, but there was no way we were going to leave this 8 month old puppy on Springwells, knowing no one was coming back for him. He is so amazing, loving, all around fantastic dog and we have no idea why he was dumped, other than people are just cruel. “

We, of course, agreed to pay for Hanson’s basic medical needs but we can’t continue without your help. Anyone interested in Hanson should contact Vincent at: vincentpopovski@gmail.comThanks ~ diana

Ralph – Abandoned by His Owners

7/26/18 – While looking for a home to rent, Gabrielle came across a dog who had been chained and left outside 24/7. She was told that he had been abandoned three months prior; the owner of the rental was planning to take him to the shelter. Instead, Gabrielle decided to rescue him, only to find out that Ralph was heart worm positive. Ralph is an amazing dog who, in just this short time, has become Gabrielle’s service dog. He senses when she will have a seizure and has actually helped her when she’s had a seizure by getting on top of her and licking her face. 4 Paws 1 Heart will be paying for Ralph’s heart worm treatment which will begin this week. ~ diana

TNR (trap/neuter/return) – Curbing the Over Population of Cats

7/25/18 – How are your donations spent? Since our beginning, August, 2010, we have paid $652,000 in medical bills for abandoned, stray, and abused animals. Every day I try to share at least one animal whom we’ve helped. But, sometimes, we are in the position of helping rescuers who are working on large colonies where TNR (trap/neuter/return) has NOT occurred. Consequently, we may not have captured all of the stories and photos. The work of our friend, Debra Berolatti, is a perfect example. In just the past few months, Debra has trapped seven adults who were returned to the colony after spay/neuter/vaccines (cared for by an elderly woman) and 25 kittens who have since been put into foster homes or taken in by our good friends at Ferndale Cat Shelter, again after being spayed/neutered, vaccinated and tested. 4 Paws 1 Heart paid for the medical needs of all of these cats and we are gratified that they will never reproduce. ~ dianatnr - debra b. 7:25:18

This very sick cat, Trish, was finally taken off the streets and, with the help of 4 Paws 1 Heart, has been treated for dehydration, fleas, mites and wounds incurred by other animals. She is now in a safe home and will get the love and care she deserves. ~ dianatrish 7:18:18 trish=7:18:18
