2/10/19 – Connor Jackson Update. This boy who was found roaming the streets has been adopted!!! So very thankful to the village of animal advocates who rescue, shelter, and donate. Wishing Connor (now Boston) the very best life.
1/31/19 When I went to work this morning I told my co worker that I had this feeling I’d be taking an animal home today. Three hours later I was contacted about a cat emergency.
Now he is at home with me…
A few days ago he and his canine housemate were thrown outside to fend for themselves. Yes, this is the sick world we live in and the only saving grace is that both animals were rescued by Good Samaritans before freezing to death. A trap was set to catch this kitty but the rescuer couldn’t hold onto him.
I have this little guy and someone else rescued the dog.. 4 paws 1 heart will cover medical but right now he is very scared and in need of love and rest. There is an area on his ear suspicious of frost bite, but he could have died.
I will never understand the EVIL… Please Say prayers. My co worker suggested the name “Vortex”. Gina♡
2/21/19 – UPDATE – Vortex is now with a local Siamese rescue.
1/27/18 – A huge thank you to Emily for taking in sweet Emily. – Diana
“1/26/19 – Remember our sweet Alley who is feline leukemia positive and needed her eyes removed? She’s all healed up and her fur has mostly grown back in. So, of course this calls for some studio time!
Thank you to all who donated for our gorgeous girl. She is MUCH happier and feeling better without the pain from her eyes. She’s making her way around the house without any trouble, and she even plays now. An extra special thank you goes to Diana Rascano and 4 Paws 1 Heart for covering Alley’s surgery. We are so grateful for all of the help. Alley has a wonderful life now because of the amazing people in our lives! – Emily”
1/25/19 – An update on Gina’s miracle babies – Ali (aka Bentley), Nugget, and Binx. Without Gina’s heart and the support of our donors, these beautiful animals would not be here today. – diana
“1/24/19 – Spent the day visiting 3 of my many favorite 4 paws 1 heart MIRACLE babies. Stella (aka Nugget), a newborn puppy I raised from birth. Her mom passed away because a baby from the litter was stuck inside of her and she went septic. Bentley (aka Ali), also raised from birth after suffering a traumatic leg injury that the previous owners claim was a result of getting smashed in a recliner, and Buster (aka Halloween Kitten), found in street on Halloween night with a broken leg, a terrible burn on his chest, hypothermic, and in shock. Nursed him back to life, and all 3 are in the most loving homes I could possibly ask for. It was a nice visit and a great day!!♡♡♡ THANK YOU ~ Gina”
1/24/19 – Katniss was a reminder of the inhumanity of mankind. Her rescue and recovery, though, was proof that there are more good people in this world than bad. From the caring woman who stopped in the cold rain to save s scared, broken animal to the great mom Katniss is with today – it took a village. – diana
1/23/19 – Update from Courtney’s Mom, our friend, Melanie Wittner.
“Thank you again for giving my son his best friend. Sean lives a lonely life, yes he has me and his brothers but since he only has a 30 word vocabulary at 23 years old he doesn’t get to come home from school and call his friends. Sean doesn’t get to go out like other kids because he gets confused and lost. Courtney has filled a hole that I would’ve never been able to. She understands his words that he doesn’t speak and doesn’t make fun of him when he sings to her. Without 4 paws I don’t know what or who Sean would have had to fill that missing piece.”
Thank YOU, Melanie and Sean, for giving Courtney the love she never had. ~ diana
1/21/19 – RIP Fatboi. It was almost 4 years ago that we were asked to help. He had a kidney and ear infection, gastritis, and the beginning of arthritis. He was much loved and this past weekend he passed away. We will see you at the Rainbow Bridge sweet boy. ~ diana
1/20/19 – Please check out the great article written by Jocelyn Brown of the Detroit News about a fun event sponsored by the Knotted Needle, in Grosse Pointe Woods, MI (https://www.detroitnews.com/staff/27489/jocelynn-brown/)
1/20/19 – Our little Orphan Annie is one year old!! It seems like only yesterday when Gina saved her and brought her to our Board meeting. Annie is no longer an orphan but she is a very spoiled girl. She has a wonderful life with fur siblings and loving parents. – diana
