Hamilton – Standing in the Middle of the Road; Emaciated and Heart Worm Positive

4/25/18 – Meet Hamilton. He was standing in the middle of the street with cars passing all around him. His paws were red and raw. He was emaciated and had a lump on his back. We were called and, of course, we said yes. Hamilton saw one of our partner vets yesterday and the ‘lump’ will need to be removed but it appears non-cancerous. Unfortunately, Hamilton, like so many dogs rescued recently, is heart worm positive although, thankfully, it is a low grade. We will be covering Hamilton’s heart worm treatment, his neuter when it’s time, and removal of the tumor from his back. But, we need your help!!! Donations have been very slow, and as all of our friends know, the money to help runs out quickly. Donations can be made by using the donation link on this page or by mail at P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI 48040. We will keep you updated. As you can see, Hamilton is a little charmer. ~ dianahammi hamilton8:23:18hammi:hamilton 4:24:18

Bandit – Left Behind When His Owners Were Evicted

4/21/18 ANOTHER UPDATE – Bandit was taken to All About Animals to be neutered and retested. He tested NEGATIVE!! I will be calling the previous vet whose tests resulted in positive for leukemia. We are willing to pay for a third test although I hate to put Bandit through this but, we need to know who is correct.
4/21/18 – Updates!
Bandit – Bandit was left behind when his owners were evicted. He was immediately taken to the vet, complements of 4p1h, and tested positive for feline leukemia. Fortunately, our friend Jo A. found someone whose cat had recently crossed the Rainbow Bridge and who was interested in giving Bandit a forever home. Bandit is now in his forever home with a canine buddy and a loving mom. ~ dianabandit 4:15:18bandit w:jo add 4:10:18

Frankie – Rescued During the Freezing Cold; Tail and Ears Frostbitten

4/21/18 UpdateFrankie - 4:13:18!
Frankie: He had emergency surgery to amputate his tail after it became infected from frostbite. The poor little guy has since been to the vet several times to ensure he was healing property and to have his bandage changed. He’s been real stubborn about keeping his cone on and although, sweet, I think he’s getting frustrated with his many vets. Hopefully, his last one will be this weekend.

Pamela – Found on the Streets with Masses Seen Near Her Lungs and Abdomen

4/18/18 – Pamela is a senior girl who was found wandering the streets of a nearby city. We were asked to cover her vetting before a rescue took over. Pamela was seen yesterday and x-rays showed possible masses near her lungs and stomach; she tested negative for heart worm. The rescue will follow up with their vet and make a decision about surgery or hospice care at that time. Prayers for all of these abandoned and abused animals are always welcome. ~ dianapamela w:sandra a 4:11:18

Ellie – Update After Her Leg Amputation

Update on “Ellie”. She was initially found as a stray with a badly broken leg. We took her in under 4 Paws 1 heart to cover her medical care and give her the chance she would not have had. We decided amputation was the best option because this was an old injury that had already begun healing. Her surgery was done last Wednesday by our friends over at Patterson Veterinary Hospital. Ellie was also fixed and given her final vaccines. She’s a very sweet girl with a whole lot of energy and three legs has not stopped her or slowed her down. In fact, keeping her activity down so that she can heal has been quite the challenge. In about 2 weeks, Ellie will be going to a rescue group where we hope she will find a wonderful forever home! If you would like to help donate towards her amputation surgery we would greatly appreciate any assistance. As all of you know, the money goes out much faster than it comes in and without your help we could not continue to give animals like Ellie a chance at a forever home. ♡ellie.jpg 4:2:18

Collages – Some of the Animals Helped Between February 22 and April 4, 2018

4/14/18 – The other evening I had to make a presentation about the animals we helped between February 22 and April 4. The total medical cost for these sweeties came out to approximately $10,000. A number of these cases involved amputations, heart worm treatment or other serious injuries; a couple of these sweeties crossed the Rainbow Bridge but not without us trying and being surrounded by love. I also spoke of the number of animals not born because, where appropriate, every animal was spayed/neutered. It is this time of the year when we are again reminded of the importance of stopping the overwhelming number of kittens from being born. If you want to learn more about the animals shown, please go to our website:4paws1heart.org and search using the animals name. Your donations make a difference~ diana
