Simon – Unable to Walk; Found on the Side of the Road

1/21/18 – Simon was rescued from the side of the road. The person who rescued him decided to throw him back outside because he couldn’t get to the litter box fast enough and urinated on the floor. You see, he couldn’t use his legs!! When we were first called, I thought it was his back legs but the reality is that all 4 of his legs have weak muscles. Simon saw Dr. Kern ofPawsitive Steps Rehabilitation & Therapy for Pets this past week and she advised that it was ok to have Simon neutered and she also said she would like to work with him in hopes of helping him walk again. He is a very loving kitty and I just can’t imagine how he survived being thrown out twice by his rescuer and, only God knows, how he wound up on the side of the road and how long he was out there. Simon is scheduled to see Dr. Kern again and we will continue to report on his progress as we have with all of our long-term cases. I am just thankful that we have such loyal financial supporters and a phenomenal network of people always willing to step up to help the homeless and abused. ~ dianasimon 1:21:18

Jack – Prayers Needed

1/20/18 – Prayers for Jack . It was just last week-end that we posted an update of our little one-eyed guy, Jack, with his ‘brother’, Toby. Shortly after I heard from the family. Jack has a virus call calicivirus, ulcers on his tongue and severe respiratory symptoms. His ‘good’ eye is swollen and he’s been licking his nose — making it raw to the point of profuse bleeding. Jack is one of those few animals that 4 Paws 1 Heart has committed to helping. He holds a special place in my heart because of what he must have gone through before he found Kelly and Dave. Jack has been treated with fluids and antibiotics and, although still ill, is being babied and much loved at home. – Diana . (p.s. Jack is on the left)jack and toby w:kelly parchett 1:12:18

Jack and Toby – Update

1/14/18 – Retro Sunday – This is Jack and Toby. Jack was fortunately enough to show up one day at a very loving couple’s home. He had one eye and they didn’t know what to do. You can read his story on our website (4paws1heart.org). We were contacted and we made arrangements for sweet Jack to be treated. We are so thankful that his mom and dad continue to keep us updated about this handsome guy — last year he was in our 2017 calendar. Even though we may not be able to save them all, the reality is that without 4 Paws 1 Heart over 4,500 animals may not have lived to see another day. Thank You to the rescuers, the fosters, the adopters, and our donors. ~ dianaJack and Toby 1:14:18

Chelsea – RIP — You Just Couldn’t Survive a Serious Infection and a Broken Leg

chelsea 1:14:181/14/18 – RIP Sweet Chelsea — You didn’t die without being loved. With a very sad heart I want to recognize this sweet little girl who showed up in an apartment building needing help. Her leg bone was totally exposed and she was unable to walk on it. We were contacted by a resident who had hoped it was just a serious infection. We authorized Chelsea to be seen by a doctor. Sadly, we were unable to save her. It is thought that she was severely injured by being hit by a car. She is now running free without pain, without freezing temperatures, and with plenty of food. ~ diana

Soup – A Look Back in Time

1/13/18 – An oldie by a goodie. Our boy, Soup. It was four years ago when Soup was brought into the emergency where Gina worked. He spent 12 weeks in a crate (with Chance’s mom) while he recovered from a broken Pelvis. Then, he spent almost a year with Gina DeLuca while she tried to find the purrfect family. And, as Gina does so often, she did find that purrfect family MaryBeth Walsh Victor. Can you just imagine the horror of having your pelvis broken, your head stuck in a can, and lying helpless in the cold? ~ diana

“Remember Soup? He was found with his head stuck in a soup can? The shaved area on his hind end was because another animal crushed his pelvis. Unable to defend himself, he cried and crawled until someone heard him and contacted us for help. I took him home to recover from his shattered pelvis (12 weeks to officially heal), and this December made one year fostering him. Longest foster ever in my home. I’m very happy to report that Soup will be going to his forever home this Friday. I will miss him dearly, but this family is wonderful for him! They are perfect, he is perfect, and he will get the love and attention he deserves. We are so blessed to have given him a 2nd chance especially after being found on the street unable to walk..
