Billy – His Appointment With the Specialist Is Today

9/13/18 – Please say a little prayer and send some positive energy for our little guy, Billy. You might remember that he was found with a fractured pelvis and a leg with several fractures. He is seeing a specialist today and we believe that surgery will be scheduled for the very near future. Billy’s been on pain medication and has even been trying to walk so we are anxious to get him all fixed up so he can enjoy being a kitten. As you can imagine, this surgery will not be cheap so if you can possibly afford a donation for billy’s surgery, it would be much appreciated. This has been a season of unbelievable need and injuries. – Thanks, diana

“We are heartbroken 😢
It’s with extreme sadness we have to tell you our sweet boy was no longer able to fight the damage done to his body from the firebombing he was in before he came to us. His internal organs just couldnt support him anymore. We are angry that ever happened to him in the first place! But we are grateful we’ve had the last 3yrs to make sure he felt safe and loved. We will always love you sweet boy, be free & whole now till we meet again.

Thankyou 4 Paws 1 Heart for being there for Phoenix every step of the way.  Team Chance”phoenix 9:8:18

Stella – Her Cries Could Be Heard During the Night

9/7/18 – Stella’s cries could be heard through out the evening and she was finally found under a car. She had an upper respiratory infection, conjunctivitis, and her paw was injured. The rescuer thought she may have gotten stuck in the car engine or had her paw run over. She was immediately taken to the vet where she was treated; fortunately, there were no broken bones in her paw; although one toe nail may need further treatment. 4 Paws 1 Heart was happy to work with the rescuer to make sure that Stella was vaccinated, spayed, and ready to be adopted. ~ diana

Gina I – Being Fed as Stray but Was Probably a Pet at One Time; Now Safe

9/1/18 – This beauty was being fed by a young girl in Metamora, MI. The kitty was very sweet but the family couldn’t bring her into the home because of severe allergies. For two months, Gina, begged everyone she knew to take in this sweetie whose owner was never found. Finally, our good friends at Midwest Small Breed Rescue, came to her rescue and will find her permanent placement. And, before we could even write this post, two more kittens no photos available) were surrendered to Gina and Midwest gladly took them in. We were happy to pay for everyone’s vetting. Three more cats taken off the streets by working together. ~ dianaGina 1 9:1:18 gina 1 -- 9:1:18 gina 1 w:9:1:18

Billy – Abandoned on a Porch with 3 Siblings; Fractured in His Pelvis ad Femur

8/30/18 – A new special-needs case taken on by 4 paws 1 heart. Billie was found amongst 4 other kittens. A person took in 3 but because Billie couldn’t stand, he was passed up. Our good friend Debbie Nelson contacted us and we agreed to take on his medical care. He is now with our other great friend and special needs mom extraordinaire, Denise Najera –Chance’s mom. I’m afraid it will be a long journey but we are suckers for special needs and although he is in pain, he’s a little love bug. – diana

“Helloooo Team, mom here. So we have some news on our little nugget Billy. It’s been confirmed that he does have 2, possibly 3 fractures to the left side of his pelvis. And he also has a fracture to the left femoral head. Which is the top of the bone in his left leg where the femur meets the hip. This will likely require surgery. So we’re figuring out the best person for that job while his pelvis heals on it’s own. He’s not so hungry tonight and he is also having a bit of eeewy 💩 which may be from the pain meds. Poor, sweet boy He’s had his pain med and something to help his poo..now he just needs to rest and we are keeping a watchful eye to make sure he’s stays as comfortable as possible. Please continue to keep Billy in your prayers. Always this time of year donations are at their lowest. Summer vacations, college tuition, back to schools clothes, we get it…we totally understand. But even with donations and funds so lowbilly 8:30:18 4 Paws 1 Heart couldn’t turn their back on little Billy. And I hope you feel the same way, every donation no matter how small helps! Billy has a long road ahead of him, and 4 Paws 1 Heart will be there every step of the way right along with Team Chance ❤ “

Frankie, Jimmy Jr. and Lola – Rescued During a TNR/Rescue Effort at a Barn

8/31/18 – It’s the last day of August and we are now starting to take care of all of those stray kittens born in early summer and found during TNR projects. Our friend, Andra, has been trapping cats and kittens at a barn in the north Macomb Country area. A number of the ones she has trapped have been kittens who she has found fosters for and who will be needing their forever homes. The older cats are being spayed/neutered, vaccinated, and flea treated and being returned to the barn. There have been approximately 10. Here are three who will NOT be returned to the born and will be looking for their forever homes. Again, we are thankful to be part of the solution. Anyone interested in adopting these cuties should contact Andra at: ashipley1@comcast.net . Here is Frankie, Jimmy Jr. and Lola. ~ dianafrankie 8:31:18 jimmy jr 8:31:18 lola 8:31:18
