8th Anniversary – Looking Back at the Many Miracles – Snickers

8/19/18 – Looking Back at the Many Miracles. Remember Snickers. It was 2013 when a young man found this very sick kitten in an icy puddle in an alley in Hamtramck, MI. A village came together to get him to the emergency hospital where Gina worked. We thought he’d lose an eye but with lots of love and medical attention, both he and his eye survived. Up to $1,500 in donations will be matched during our Anniversary Week. You too can make a difference. Donations can be made at:http://4paws1heart.org/donations/snickers 2013 snickers

Mickey (aka Neo) – Looking Back Over the Past 8 Years

8/18/18 – HAPPY 8TH ANNIVERSARY TO 4 PAWS 1 HEART. To celebrate this momentous occasion, one of our Board members has offered to match up to $1,500 in donations made over the next week. As a reminder to all of our supporters, we will take a look back at some of our many miracles. This is Mickey (now Neo). It was January, 2017 when I was called about a sweet dog found licking frozen water in the street. He had a cherry eye and he turned out to be heart worm positive. We thank God for his rescuer and and for the donations that made our help possible. Here he is then and now since he’s been adopted by a loving family who adores him.

August 18, 2018 4 Paws 1 Heart celebrates its 8th Anniversary –over 5,000 animals and $665,888 in paid medical bills. And it couldn’t have happened without our rescue friends and our supporters. Starting tomorrow we have a $1,500 match starting as well as a trip down memory lane. Please be sure to check out our posting and share it — and to my family and friends, who have supported me over the past 8 years, — a sincere thank you. Also, a huge thank you to our Board of Directors, my husband Tony, and my dad who chose to honor my mom by having contributions made in her memory last July, 2017 when she passed away. We raised over $7,000 at that time and it truly made the difference in so many lives. I also want to recognize Kroger, Colleen’s Irish Pub, Harbor Lanes, Painting with a Twist,Jefferson Yacht Club, and 100 Women Who Care – Grosse Pointe as great community partners. ~ dianaCollage Pg 1 February 22 - April 4 Page 8

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
