10/11/17 – First let me apologize if you are a ‘dog’ person only. Trust me when I say that we do not discriminate! It’s just that the need for cats have been greater than any of the years 4 Paws 1 Heart has been in existence. So, please understand that you will be seeing many postings regarding the cats and kittens we have helped. A life is a life and your donations make these miracles happen.
This is Donnie. Donnie was found on the streets with significant swelling near his groin. The rescuer, Heather, contacted us to see if we could assist; of course we did. Donnie was seen and the swelling was full of pus. It was drained and Donnie went home with a collar and will be just fine. Again, I just can’t imagine what these poor animals would go through on the streets without the help of the caring rescuers and the help of 4 Paws 1 Heart. Anyone interested in this cutie should contact Heather at: email@example.com ~ diana
10/9/17 – Sabrina was one of two cats pulled from a shelter. Her body temperature was at 94 degrees and she needed immediate medical help. She required transfusions and hospitalization. We were contacted by our friends at Angels for Animals and assisted with Sabrina’s medical bill. Sabrina is doing well today. If you are interested in this sweetheart, please contact Erin at: firstname.lastname@example.org

“If you’re here looking for a pet to adopt then I feel you’re making the right decision.
A year ago in March I was on adopt a pet looking for a kitten. I had it pictured in my mind exactly what kind I wanted. The ones with the flat face and perfectly cute. Then I received an email about a kitten who had been abused and lost an eye in the process. At first I felt bad for it but still I wanted the perfect kitten. I have a disease with no cure that leaves scars. One night I started thinking about the letter and it hit me what if no one ever wanted me again because I wasn’t pretty anymore even though I do show lots of love and respect to others. Short story I wrote Stacy a letter pleading for this kitten and I got her. She is completely blind but gets around perfect and is the best pet I’ve ever had. She sleeps with me every night on the second floor she found herself. She never gets on top of the counters and plays fetch better than my two labs. She is so beautiful and for the rest of my life I’ll be adopting. She almost didn’t make it. Thank God she did. Please consider adoption and give the animal a chance.~ Barbara”
10/7/17 – Finley walked up to a home looking for help. He was filled with fleas and very emaciated. We immediately authorized for him to be seen by one of our vets. Finley needed fluids and flea treatment. Left untreated, fleas will “suck” everything out of an animal’s body. He’s been cared for by one of our dedicated rescue friends and now look at the difference. Finley will soon be ready to go to his foster. If anyone is interested in adopting this sweetie, please contact Jo at: email@example.com

“GRAPHIC: Their eyes still look bad, but believe it or not they look MUCH better and the swelling is going down! They’re purring and FINALLY eating (not on their own, but it’s still better than not at all). These little boys are so patient and sweet. I can’t wait for them to open their eyes and finally get to be happy boys. These boys are going to be VERY loving and we’ll want to keep them together. Thank you for your prayers and we’ll update you asap. Lori Shafer Diana Rascano they’re improving! – Heather”
Another happy ending This little kitty, Rosie, was found in a cornfield up north. She was lucky to have been alive and not be prey to another animal. 4 Paws 1 heart paid for her to be fixed and fully checked out. Now Rosie is living in her forever home. Gina
10/4/17 – Wally showed up in Emily’s sister’s backyard. He could could fit in both hands. His leg was skinned and muscles were ripped off. He was still being weened by his mama. He was taken to a veterinary hospital where it was determined that his limb had no blood supply and would eventually fall off if not amputated. He was held in the hospital for a week and received fluids and antibiotics while waiting for surgery. Finally, his leg was amputated. Today he is doing great and looking for his forever home.
