Charlie, Caesar, Mina – Happy Updates

Happy Father’s Day to all the good men who have furbabies in their lives. I’ve always said that there is something special about a man who loves and cares for animals. So, on this day to celebrate our dads, I wanted to give some updates.

Charlie – Charlie was rescued by the great people of Their Last Resort . Charlie was absolutely on death’s door and, thankfully, after days in the hospital is now doing great. We were happy to help a little and if you are interested in Charlie, please check out Their Last Resort Rescue’s page.

Caesar – Caesar was rescued from the streets of Flint, MI. Our friends at Streethearts Rescue work very hard to save so many. When Caesar was taken to the vet for vetting, he was found to have heart worm. We were happy to pay for his heart worm treatment and even happier to find out that he is now heart worm free and is now in his furever home.

Mina – We were contacted again by our friends at Streethearts. They had rescued Mina from the streets of Flint, MI and five days after she was adopted, it was found that she had tumors on her vulva. Streethearts continued their commitment to Mina and asked for our help with her surgery. Later, Mina’s doctor found more tumors and recommended Mina be seen by a specialist. We were able to find a sponsor for Mina to see one of the best oncologists in the area and she will be seeing the doctor this coming week. We don’t know what the outcome will be for this very sweet girl who already is much loved but at least she will be given a chance.

Thank you to all of our supporters who help us give stray and abandoned animals that second chance at life. – diana

mina 2020Update:  Mina was taken to Oakland Veterinary Referral Services and was seen by one the their cancer specialists.  There were two options for treatment and the new family with the help of 4 Paws 1 Heart and a sponsor chose an option that would be more gentle on Mina.  She would start a regimen of oral chemo.  Mina started her treatment shortly afterward.
July Update – One month after treatment started, Mina was rechecked and the doctor determined that Mina was doing well.  Her treatment will continue for another 5 months while she is checked every month. – diana

Nala – A Call For Help and One Social Posting Changed Her Life Forever

nala 4:2:20--- nala - 4:2:20 nala 4:2:204/2/20 – A quick story about why I believe timing is everything and sharing via social media can SAVE a life.
March 3rd I posted a few pics of a dog that needed a home. Backstory: Owner had to give up dog because he and his wife split up and the dog wasn’t allowed at the new home. Alternatively, she would temporarily live in the garage, get put on Craigslist, or be taken to a shelter.
An acquaintance of the owner and friend of my stepfather, offered to take the dog, “Nala”, but he wasn’t prepared for giving her what she needed.
I was asked to help, and with little hope for a quick/immediate solution I posted her on my page March 3rd.
It wasn’t that I didn’t want her to be placed in a home on such short notice. It was that she was like the countless other large breed, bully breed, adult dogs in need of a home RIGHT NOW and realistically I didn’t think it could happen.
I posted on my page and in less than 24 hours a mutual friend shared with a relative who was in search for a rescue dog….a compatible large breed dog for her family.
I put her in touch with my stepfather’s friend who currently had “Nala”.
4 paws 1 heart offered to pay for the spay, vaccines, and check up for her and a “Meet and Greet”was quickly arranged between Nala and the relative of my mutual Facebook friend.
About 1 week later Nala went to her new forever family and this is what makes my ♡ happy. Here are the updated pics.
All I did was share and that ONE share changed the life of one dog forever. It changed the life of her new family forever. Timing is EVERYTHING and sometimes we r just here to be the person in- between a Miracle. Gina

Blackie – Shot At by Humans and Attacked By Dogs; Now Living the Good Life

If you aren’t aware of Blackie’s story, please check out our website,4paws1heart.org. Blackie was attacked by dogs at the vacant Packard plant in Detroit, and 16 pellets were found in his body. Can you imagine this poor animal being used for target practice?? And after emergency care, Blackie was found to be heart worm positive. 4 Paws 1 Heart paid for all of his medical needs and our friends at Michigan Animal Crew took him into their rescue. He is looking amazing and his foster mom said he is gaining weight and feeling very comfortable. The first two photos are of him now. The third photo is when he was brought into the emergency hospital. Thought everyone could use some happy news. – diana
