Maggie Lu – Found Wandering the Streets – Flea Infested, Intact, and Both Legs Needing Surgery

7/26/17 – Our 4 Paws 1 Heart family has been unbelievably caring and generous in hearing of the death of my mom. Two days ago I received the following message “Hi Diana, we are so sorry to hear about the passing of your mom. I hope you can find some comfort at this difficult time. also, my husband and I would like to do a March donation up to $500″.

So, over the next week all donations made up to $500 will be matched by this very caring supporter of 4 Paws 1 Heart. Please help us get to $500 by using the donation link on this page or by mail at P.O. Box 84, St.Clair Shores, MI 48080. It is only with your donations and support can we continue to help save the lives of the abandoned like Maggie Lu.

Maggie Lu was found not-spayed, horribly flea infested, with long nails, and with both knees needing cranial cruciate surgery. An owner could not be found. Although the rescuer was willing to give Maggie Lu a forever home, she could not afford the medical bills. We were contacted and Monday, Maggie Lu was spayed and had surgery on one leg. The surgery went well and 4 Paws 1 Heart, if money is available, will help Maggie Lu with the surgery on her other leg when the time comes. Here she is when first rescued and a little later before surgery ~ dianaMaggie Lu 5:12:17Maggie Lu w:angela atkinson 6:16:17

Casper – Only 10 Months Old, Deaf, and Running the Streets

7/25/17 – Meet Casper. At 10 months and deaf, he was found running the streets. The rescuers found out who his owners were but when they were contacted, they chose to not take him. The rescuers could not afford to keep him and contacted our friends at Friends of Scooby Rescue. We have often helped this rescue, and in this case, we were asked again if we could help Casper with neutering, vaccinating, and testing. Of course we did. Casper is now in a loving foster home where the young son of the house and Casper have already bonded. The young man is already learning sign language to teach Casper. Casper will also be in training for the next six months and our prayer is that he will find the perfect loving home once ready. Who knows?? Maybe, he already found that. ~ dianacasper 7:25:17

Kittens -2017 – 6 Kittens Found Very Ill in a Backyard

7/25/17 UPDATE: The 4 orange babies were seen at Patterson this morning. They were given eye ointment and were treated for fleas and worms. The two who are most ill may need to have an eye removed. They will be seen again within the next two weeks. Paws crossed and prayers that won’t have to happen. – diana

7/24/17 – Please pray for these babies. I was contacted yesterday about 6 kittens rescued from a person’s backyard. All of them were sick, a couple of them more than the others. The rescuer not only needed medical assistance but needed help with placement because her family was leaving for vacation today. With much wrangling and phone calls to as many friends as I could think of, a plan was made. The rescuer had contacted Wilson’s Veterinary who said they would hold the kittens BUT if we could not find a foster, all of the kittens would be picked up the next day (today) by animal control. In the condition they were in, there was a good chance they would be euthanized if that happened. I agreed to pay for the kittens to be examined — at emergency prices — and to be treated. My dilemma was to pay for the medical which would be between $800 and $1,000 only to have them killed the next day or to take a chance that we could find someone to take these poor, sick babies in. God was with us because our good friend Jo Addington agreed to take in all 6 and our very good friend, Debra Berolatti agreed to pick them up this morning and take them to Jo’s. Once picked up from the vet, Debra and Chance’s mom, Denise, also spent time at Jo’s house cleaning their eyes and making sure they were comfortable. The photos here are of them before they had been cleaned up. Tomorrow, four of them will be taken to Patterson Veterinary Hospital and the two grey babies will be cared for by our friend Patricia Brown and her wonderful daughter, Bree. I know I’ve said this before, but rescue is not a singular effort; it truly takes a village. Also, please note that as fast as the donations come in, the donations go out. If anyone has any money to spare, please help with the medical care for these babies. There are also two more (one caught and one more to go) being fostered elsewhere. Donations can be made on this page or by mail at P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI . 48080. ~ diana20294286_1591278780904414_4494869149216582034_n 20264647_1591278724237753_5887116831374005838_n20294520_1591278874237738_2062837777665065457_n 20294122_1591279157571043_8106154119297974569_n 20429940_1591279057571053_3907870648505180464_n 20294352_1591279187571040_6504972516995498548_n

Chance – Speaks Up for Community Cats

7/20/17 – Working together to make a difference. LOVE!! – diana

“Good morning Star & Twinsie!!! Are you enjoying your breakfast? We love you
Good morning Team Chance! Our beautiful ferals Star & Twinsie are having their yummy breakfast, then they’ll get up on the chairs for a morning nap knowing they are safe & loved. Becuse of 4 Paws 1 Heart they were spayed and had their shots 5yrs ago and theyve lived in our yard ever since never having any babies. 5yrs ago there were more then 30 cats & litters upon litters being born on our street. Mom started trapping the kittys and with the help of 4p1h all were spayed & neutered, all of the kittens were placed in loving homes and most of the adults too! But, if that original mama cat had been spayed in the first place all those kittys would not have been born outside. Sooo spay, neuter, tnr and be kind! No kitty chooses to live a life outside, humans made that choice. Have a SuperHero kind of Thursday everybody!” ~ Chancestar and twinsie 7:20:17

It’s because of the kind hearts of people like Austin that we are able to give so many, like this little one trapped in a garage and recently rescued, a second chance at life. It was a pleasure meeting Austin and his wonderful family at our recent Alex and Ani fundraiser.boy scout austin 7:19:17trapped in garage 7:19:17
