4/15/17 – Before you know it, our bowling event (Saturday, June 3, 8:00 p.m.) will be here. Anyone who has attended can attest to the great fun we all have. Raffle baskets are typically valued from $75 to $600 and sometimes there are special surprises. There’s a 50/50, music, and great people. What more can you ask for. Get your checks in early because this event sells out early. Checks can be mailed to P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI . 48080. Just include your e mail so that I can acknowledge receipt of your check. Or, you can pay through paypal on the donate link here or our website 4 paws1heart.org. If you pay through paypal, I just ask that you include the 3% (60 cents per ticket) carrying fee which is what paypal charges us. Hope to see all of our friends!!
As Chance, I also pray for the many abandoned and stray defenseless animals. Everyone can make a difference through legislation, donations, fostering, adopting, and prayer.
Love Always ❤ Chance”
4/14/17 – This beautiful girl (1-2 years old) was seen running into a moving car. We were contacted to see if we would cover a doctor visit, which we did. She was found to have a bruised lung and is on medication. She must be kept quiet for 2 weeks. She has been placed on For The Love of Louie in hopes of finding her owner. The rescuer is calling her Gert. 4 Paws 1 Heart will cover her spay and vaccines when she is healthy. UPDATE – The doctor contacted me to tell me that Gert is also heart worm positive!! She is very docile and is still looking for a rescue. 4 Paws 1 Heart has committed to paying for her heart worm treatment. I have been told that I Heart Dogs may be able to take her in the near future. ~ diana
4/14/17 – Widow is less than a year old and was surrendered because the owner had a baby who was allergic. Widow had not received any medical treatment. We were contacted by a 4p1h friend who is trying to help re-home poor Widow. 4 Paws 1 Heart paid for Widow to be spayed, vaccinated, and tested in hopes that by our taking care of her medical bills, she will be better able to find her forever loving home. ~ diana

Thank YOU. ~ diana
4/12/17 – Our community is so blessed to have so many animal advocates and 4 Paws 1 Heart. Our dear friend and cat whisperer, Debra Berolatti, is one of those people. I think the underground cat community has put out the word that if you show up at Debra’s house, she will make sure your are fed, fixed, and sheltered because all of a sudden, Debra has had cats in need showing up at her house. This is Nova who did just that. Debra was able to get Nova to the vet, complements of 4 Paws 1 Heart, and he is now with our friends at Ferndale Cat Rescue. Another life saved because of this phenomenal community. ~ diana
4/11/17 – Meet Hobbit. He showed up in a cat community unable to use his one leg. The caretaker of the community took Hobbit to the vet where x-rays were done and medication was given. After one week, Hobbit was still having a hard time walking and we were contacted. Hobbit was taken to one of our great veterinary clinics where surgery was performed on his abscess. Today he is doing quite well and continues to heal inside the caretaker’s home. ~ diana
4/10/17 – Please pray for Adeline who is believed to have been attacked by another animal. She has multiple leg fractures and a chest injury. Our friends at Paws for Life rescued her and at this time an amputation is being considered for her injured leg. We are thankful that because of donations by our supporters we can assist our rescue friends with these difficult cases. Donations are slow at this time, so if you have a few extra dollars please consider making a donation to 4 Paws 1 Heart.

4/10/17 – update on this sweet girl: Adalene had her multiple fractures repaired, and was discharged a few days ago. She is doing well in her foster home, is on 3-4 weeks of crate rest. Once she has fully recovered she will be available for adoption through Paws for Life Animal Rescue!
Our boy Chance gets famous on WDIV with our great friend, Shawn Ley. Please remember that without donations we can’t give animals like Chance a second Chance. You might want to follow Chance on his page, Second Chance for Chance. ~ diana
4/7/17 – So happy we can be there for the abandoned and abused. We were contacted by a friend of 4 Paws 1 Heart who cares for community cats. One of the guys she had been caring for showed up with a large abscess on his face. Unfortunately, it took a couple of days to catch him but thankfully it happened yesterday and our great friends at Rescue Veterinary Services squeezed us in. Smudge had obviously been in pain and as you can see from Pam Clarke‘s report, his injuries were greater than thought. As she said, Smudge will be on the road to recovery and 4 Paws 1 Heart took care of the entire bill.. ~ diana
4/8/17 Update: Smudge after his surgery, now sleeping soundly. Pam says that he was obviously someone’s cat at one time. He just wants to rub up to her and purrs constantly. When she puts food down, he eats it so fast it’s obvious that he had to ‘fight’ amongst others to eat. I just can’t imagine what life is like for an animal who was once in a home now having to live in the wild not knowing how to fend for himself. Many prayers for this little guy. Unfortunately, he was found to be FIV positive but this is not a death sentence. His rescuer will keep Smudge inside and will try to find him the perfect home.~ diana
