Harvey – Rescued with Her Babies

6/19/17 – The mom, Harvey, had been showing up to be fed for a number of months and then one day she showed up with babies. The caring person who had been feeding Harvey tried to get the kittens, without success. But then one day, Mama Harvey brought them to the door. Everyone will now be tested, spayed/neutered, and vaccinated, complements of 4 Paws 1 Heart. Making a Difference one feline at a time. ~ dianaHarvey (mama) 6:19:17harvey's kitten #2 6:19:17Harvey's kitten #3 6:19:17Harvey's kitten #46:19:17harvey's kitten 6:19:17

Rosie Roo, Carlos, Chance, and Bridgette – All Rescues Helped By 4 Paws 1 Heart

6/17/17 – Making a difference!! Thank you Denise and Michelle

Helloooo Team Chance, Mom here. Im showing you these pics so you can see how far these very special babies have come. Rosie Roo, Chance, Phoenix, Bridgette & Carla. Being a mommy to a houseful of special needs babies is a full time job ( not to mention 4 others who are not special needs) and at times can be heartbreaking like when we lost our beloved hospice boy Carlos and at the very least, stressful. But thats what we do, we take in special needs, hospice, and seniors. When we take on these special kids under the loving wing of 4 Paws 1 Heart, they commit to them forever as long as they have the funds to pay for their medical. In our house…its been thousands of dollars. Today we took Rosie Roo in for her every 3 wks anal gland cleaning and there was a problem. Rosie has an infected anal gland and needed to see the Dr, a anal infusion, meds and a recheck in 1 week. I messaged Diana Rascano at 4 Paws and within minutes she called the vet to approve what Rosie needed. In a million years we could not do what we do here without 4 Paws 1 Heart. Every week somebody needs something. Currently Carla goes once a week to Dr. Kern so she can get her physical therapy, & accupunture so she will be able to walk again like Chance. And this is just our house alone! We are beyond thankful for 4 Paws 1 Heart for all they do for these kids, the others we help like Nala and the many, many cats & kittens who have come through here that have went on to wonderful, loving homes. If you havent already, please go to their Facebook page and give them a like and their website to see many more stories of lives saved and how you can help!

Well, on with the day…almost time for Nala’s meet & greet!!! 4paws1heart.orgrosie roo 2017carla 6:17:17chance 2016bridgette 6:17:17

Dewey – He Had a Hole in A Diaphragm But Found the Perfect Parents

6/17/17 – Another heartwarming photo of Gina’s former foster and patient, Dewey. Dewey was found in October, 2013, under a van, starving and terrified. The finder contacted Gina and she took him under the medical care of 4 Paws 1 Heart. Dewey was originally treated for a small laceration and the typical needs of a kitten left to fend for himself. But, shortly afterwards, Dewey’s health became critical and it was determined that Dewey had a hole in his diaphragm. It was a few months of recovery under Gina’s expert care and then a miracle happened and the purrfect family adopted him. Thank You Cory and family for taking in our baby and always sharing his happy updates. ~ dianadeweyDewey 10:2013 w:cory lynnDewey w:Cory Lynn 5:20:17

peterparker w:heathersterner 6:12:17aries with heather sterner6/15/17 – We continue to thank and admire all of the people who spend hours trapping and fostering cats and kittens. 4 Paws 1 Heart is happy to partner with all of these caregivers by providing medical coverage — whether the medical treatment is for just spay/neuter and vaccines or as serious as upper respiratory infections, wounds, and injuries resulting from being hit by cars. This is Peter Parker (before treatment and love and after) and Aries. Both of these sweethearts are with Heather who can be contacted at: sternerheather2014@gmail.com

Dakota – The Babies Kept Dying So We Had her See the Emergency Hospital Doctor

6/14/17 – One of the independent rescuers we work with referred this situation to us. A female cat just had kittens; two were dead, one appeared to be healthy. By the next day the healthy kitten was dead. The mama was lethargic and seemed to be in distress and there was a concern that other stillborn kittens might be in the birth canal. We had the female taken to our great doctors at Advanced Animal Emergency and it was determined that Dakota was suffering from retained placenta. She was given antibiotics and is now safe and resting in a home. ~ dianadakota 6:14:17

Trap/Neuter/Return – The Kittens Keep Coming

6/12/17 – Since August, 2010, we have paid medical bills for over 4,000 cats and dogs. 75% of those animals have been cats/kittens. It’s not because we seek out felines. Felines are capable of producing more offspring for nearly their entire life. Cats are most prone to be ‘dumped’ by owners when they are no longer wanted because people believe all cats can live in the wild. And, many owners allow their cats to roam freely, often when they are not spayed/neutered, thus resulting in the overpopulation of stray and unwanted kittens. Every time we assist an animal, it will always include spay/neuter. And, even with all of those cats assisted over almost 7 years, we are still inundated with requests to help stray and abandoned felines. Here are nine kittens, all with varying stages of upper respirator infection, recently rescued by our friend Charlotte Y. who not only does TNR (trap, neuter, return) by she also conducts classes. Although these babies are too young to be spayed/neutered, once 4 Paws 1 Heart commits, we follow through until everyone is healthy, fixed and appropriately vaccinated. ~ diana

Muffin – Her Owner Passed Away and Now She May Have Cancer

6/8/17 – Please say a prayer for sweet Muffin. She is 13 years old and her owner passed away. The owners family surrendered her to a rescue, but in the process of getting her groomed for her new journey, a mass was found. She was taken to a vet who aspirated the mass and the doctor believed that it might be cancerous. There was no way of being assured without a biopsy, blood test, and x-rays which the rescue could not afford. 4 Paws 1 Heart has paid for Muffin to be seen by the professional staff at Hartrick Veterinary Clinic. The tests x ray and blood work was negative. We are still working on it for this poor emaciated little girl and if Muffin does have inoperable cancer, a hospice home has been found. ~ dianaMuffin 6:8:17
