Mandy – Found on the Streets; Very Ill

2/22/18 – This little beauty was found on the streets by an independent rescuer responsible for saving dozens of cats who have been abandoned and left to fend for themselves. Mandy was found in a feral colony but she was not feral and appeared to be very sick. We approved Mandy’s medical visit and here is the report from her rescuer – diana

“She had a really bad cold, sinus and eye infections when I picked her up off the streets. Now she has roundworms. Without the help of 4 paws she would not have made it through the worst of the winter. Thank you for your help. – Francine”

This is what your donations to 4 Paws 1 Heart are for, saving lives! If not for 4p1h and their amazing vets Dr. Zalac & Dr. Blasses, Twyla would 100% not have survived her ordeal.

Spice Family – Spice, Hazel, Cinnamon, Ginger, and Chili – A Mama and 5 Kittens

2/19/18 – Meet the Spice Family. We received a call from our friends at 313 K-9 and Kitty Rescue. They had rescued a mama and her 5 newborn kittens that were found as strays. One kitten had developed some pus-filled bumps on her and there was a concern that it could spread because one kitten had died that evening. We were happy to have them seen by the doctor at Five Mile Veterinary and it was found that the the pus-filled bumps, had been caused by a bite infection from the mom. That baby was treated and is doing well as is everyone else. Their names are Spice (mama), Hazel, Cinnamon, Ginger, and Chili. If you are interested, please contact 313. Can you imagine what would have happened to this family if not for the rescue and the donations to 4 Paws 1 Heart? Please consider donating today. Every day we get several calls for help and we can only do what our purse will afford. Donations can be made using the link on the left side of this page or by mail at P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI . 48080. Thank YOU – Dianaspice family w:313 2:19:18

Dee Brown Gudenau added 4 new photos.

Plan A wasn’t happening…I was contacted by a previous adopter (I’ll call her AK) concerning 6 cats that needed to find a rescue due to the owner has dimentia and her daughter needed help rehoming them. I contacted 4 Paws 1 Heart and agreed to have my back for updating their shots, snap test and wellness visit. AK meriaculously found a rescue Providing for Paws that had a foster that would take ALL OF THEM! So…Thursday morning vetting, take them back to their home, and pick them back up Saturday and deliver them to Nadine Pyne-Dochenetz the foster. PERFECT PLAN! so we thought…..

After a lot of Blood (mine), Sweat (hubby’s & mine) and Tears (of joy once they all were in carriers) we were on our way to Rescue Vet. I said to hubby….”Hubby, there is NO way I’m going to be able to get them in carriers Saturday again NO WAY” so plan B it is! Texted Nadine – she could take them after 4 (an hour away from us) – great. Texted the daughter that I wasn’t coming back with them – FINE! Text my boss – need a full day vaction instead of half- OK! They were purrfect, sweet angels at the vet….all tested negative! All on their way to their new chapter in their lives! Thank you all, 4 Paws 1 Heart, AK, Nadine Pyne-Dochenetz and Providing for Paws and most of all my hubby….who helped during capture, transport and my life.

Please contact Providing for Paws for adoption info. The kitties, the vet determined are 3 years old.”

Calvin – Rescued with a Leg Wound

2/13/18 – He showed up in a cat community but Calvin was not feral — just scared. He also had a wound on his hind leg. We were happy to send Calvin to our favorite doctors at Patterson Veterinarian where Calvin was tested, neutered, vaccinated, and treated for his wound. Intact animals left to fend for themselves in the wild are targets for fights and rape. A whole different dynamic occurs when everyone is spayed/neutered.

Twyla – She Left Healthy But Returned Very Ill

Our hearts break for what our Twyla has been through but we will always be there for her.

A Second Chance For Chance

Hellooo Team, well Twyla had her appointment today & it took a rather unexpected turn.ets start with her injured leg. Dr. Blasses took an xray to compare to the xrays from the emergency hospital xrays. Not much difference except her leg is swollen quite a bit more then it was then. It’s too swollen to assess her knee ligaments. So we were going to go home with pain meds cus Twyla is extremely painful and anti-inflammatory. But…because Twyla has lost close to 3lbs and is not eating on her own the Dr decided to do bloodwork. The bloodwork came back that Twyla is jaundice, likely caused from not eating properly. So now Twyla has to have a ultrasound of her liver tomorrow morning. She can’t have the anti-inflammatory because it could damage her liver, so she received antibiotics & much needed pain meds. Please keep Twyla in your prayers tomorrow that her liver is not permanently damaged. When Twyla was seen by the emergency vet @4 Paws 1 Heart covered her medical which was over $400.00. Today she had exam, xray, full blood panel & meds. Tomorrow she will have an ultrasound and we don’t know what else will be needed until we get the results of that. No matter what, 4 Paws 1 Heart is committed to making sure Twyla receives the medical care she needs, this is where your donations mean so much. If you would like to donate to help with Twyla’s medical it would be so appreciated. We will keep you posted. Twyla is now on a/d food for urgent care and mom’s going to go get some food into her tummy
