7/19/17 – A huge thank you to our friend, Scout Austin Hammer, for conducting a bottle drive that raised $216.00 for the animals helped by 4 Paws 1 Heart. It’s because of the kind hearts of people like Austin that we are able to give so many, like this little one trapped in a garage and recently rescued, a second chance at life. It was a pleasure meeting Austin and his wonderful family at our recent Alex and Ani fundraiser.
7/18/17 – Meet Shania. She was found in a cat community be cared for by the mom of someone we’ve helped in the past. For one year Shania has been suffering from an eye injury; the veterinarian had advised that her eye needed to be removed but funds could not be found to do this. We were contacted a couple of weeks ago and, of course, agreed to pay for the eye removal which was done Saturday, July 15, 2017. Shania, is a domesticated cat, who has found her way into a forever loving home with her rescue. Shania is one of the many animals whose lives will be forever changed because of caring people and 4 Paws 1 Heart and our generous supporters. ~ diana
Hercules and Beau brought their folks (Dr. Kern and her husband, Chris) to the 4 Paws 1 Heart Aqua Fest Fun today. Everyone had a wonderful time getting some exercise and supporting a great group!

“Hello Team, mom here. For our friends who are new to our page or didnt see the condition of our sweet Rosie Roo⚘the day I picked her up from the shelter, this is her picday 1 on her way home from the shelter. For so many of our angels like Rosie, Oliver, Chance, Carla & Phoenix the road to love has been dotted with issues both physical & emotional. But one look at their beautiful faces and we know theyre worth every minute of work, every sacrifice, every kiss, every tear, every sleepless night, every hug, every prayer said. They are beautiful souls and worth everything it takes to keep them happy & healthy. But I could never do it alone! Im blessed with my awesome sister (Aunt Shelly) who is right there sharing every struggle, triumph, dirty litter box, feedings, hugs, lullabys, fears, and joys with me & the gang, supporting, helping at every turn. Some very special family members who encourage our journey. Some amazing, amazing friends who’ve built special furniture, purchased items needed for their mobility and happiness. Come by the house and help with Carla, do Reiki on Phoenix, drop off donations, transport us to vets, petsit, encourage, so many things! Team Chance who donate not only for KittysHelpingKittys, but for our angels as well. And of course our beloved 4 Paws 1 Heart who without we could never, ever do what we do. So, I just want you all to know how very grateful I am and how much you all mean to me and the Gang, and to thankyou from the bottom of my heart for traveling with us on the this wonderful, crazy, emotional ROAD TO LOVE ❤ Sweet dreams everybody! Love, Mom (Denise Najera)”
7/16/17 – We took care of two emergency cases yesterday, this sweet 18 year old was one of them. What has her life been like for 18 years?? Did she sneak out of her once loving home or was she dumped. If anyone can provide love for the remainder of her life, please contact Jo. ~ diana
“This is Abby, she has been coming to my house for quite awhile to get food. I finally caught her last night. She has such severe diarrhea is is just dripping out of her. I gave her a bath and cut some mats off of her and got her to the vet through 4 paws 1 heart. She only has 1 or 2 teeth left and is so skinnky and dehydrated, it is so pitiful. They think she is a senior of about 18 years old. That poor baby has been suffering for so long. Thank god for 4 paws 1 heart for providing her the care she desperatley needed. If anyone is willing to give her a home to live out the rest of her life please contact me. email@example.com”
This morning I opened my personal page to find a “Happy Birthday” message to my mom. She loved my posts, especially when they were accompanied by a beautiful photo. Her birthday was May 2 so I thought it a little strange that the posting should come up this morning just after I completed going through all of the cards and donations made in her memory. This is mom on her honeymoon and “her” cat, Dolce, adopted from Gina.
I want to extend a very sincere THANK YOU from me, my family, and the animals who will be helped by 4 Paws 1 Heart. Because of the love of our many friends and family, $3,175 was donated in my mom’s honor. She would have been overwhelmed. Her legacy will live on in the many lives which will be saved in her memory. May God Bless all of you who said a prayer, donated, or came to the services. ~ diana
7/15/17 – “I have named him “Keno”. He came running out of a field in Armada darting towards a chicken coop when young children saw him and quickly scooped him up before he was in grave danger. The family couldn’t keep him so they contacted 4 paws 1 heart. We are covering his medical. He was feluk/fiv tested negative, dewormed, vaccinated, flea treated, and he is healthy. The only thing noticed was an injury to the front of his lower jaw, it may be an ulcer. We are monitoring it for now. Please let me know if you can help with placement for this extremely sweet kitten. He is about 12 weeks old and beyond adorable. ~ firstname.lastname@example.org”
7/14/17 – Boo Boo was either lost or abandoned. He showed up at a house and wanted so badly to be taken in. Thankfully our friends were able to rescue him and find a forever home. Good Luck, sweet one. – diana

Thank you 4 paws 1 heart for vetting and taking care of him, and Kim Satterfield Plegge for your help, and for all of those that shared. I appreciate it so much. And congradulations to Kimberly Eddy and her family to their new addition. He is such a gem. I am so happy he found a wonderful home and is off the streets. Makes my heart happy. – Jo”

“My new mini project….went 2 years without any new kittens at my friends house that we have TNRed at…and bam – ONE, only ONE kitten showed up at my sweet friends door….So the baby was trapped and now decompressing in my garage. It is feral but loves chicken and so young (8 weeks??) …so I don’t think it will take long to socialize her/him. Thank you to 4 Paws 1 Heart for offering to take care of this little dudes medical. And a huge thank you to Deborah Meteer for not turning her back on the little one…not that you ever have or could…you have the biggest heart. ~ Dee”
7/13/17 -We are so appreciative for our village of friends. Without their dedication, our medical funds would be meaningless. – diana
“UPDATE: So, I was way off, they are more like 10 -11 weeks, lol, guess I better brush up on my kitty knowledge! both weighed in at 2 lbs 14 oz! Shame on me! Well….looks like I have some fosters! Got them all set up, and good news, after de-stressing we are able to take them out, love on them, and no hissing, no backlash, just need lots of love and learn how to be kittens. Thank you Debra Berolatti for rescuing these cuties and good luck getting their sibling. We have one boy, the black and white kitten, and a girl, the Tuxedo. Appear to be around 6-7 weeks old. Will be vetted by 4 Paws 1 Heart and up for adoption when ready. Happy Happy. _ Patricia Brown”
