7/3/19 UPDATE: Cinnamon is having surgery on her tail today. She was seen yesterday. We’ll get an update later.
7/2/19 – Please say a little prayer for this very sweet dog. A very kind man was picking up his daughter at a bus stop and two people drove up and said they were being evicted and let the dog out of the car and drove off. The man took the dog home and contacted Animal Control who referred him to us for help. Cinnamon had a swollen paw and was chewing at her tail. The family, who couldn’t afford a vet visit, put a cone on her in hopes of keeping her away from her tail. The swelling in her paw got better but the tail was a concern. Unfortunately, one day she hid in the rescuer’s garage and it appears she chewed her tail off. She will be seen by our great doctors at Patterson and hopefully we can find out what happened. It is obvious that Cinnamon had been neglected by her previous owners. Here are before and after photos. ` diana

6/25/19 – Happy Update – It was early May when Belfor was rescued by a kind man while he was working on an electric circuit. Belfor was skin and bones and his hip bone kept popping out. Efforts were made to find an owner but none could be found. Belfor was taken to the vet where is hip issue was treated but he was found to be heart worm positive. That’s when we were called in to help. Belfor has completed his treatment and the only thing left is another visit to confirm the hear worm has gone. He has gained weight, has his energy back, is being taken for walks in the park and just made a new friend. The neighbors recently rescued a dog and the couples are positive the dogs must have known each other before because they have become best friends. Look at the difference that medical treatment and love can do in just a little more than 6 weeks.
As anyone knows, who has had the misfortune of a pet being diagnosed with heart worm, heart worm treatment is very expensive but it can be avoided by providing year-round preventative. As they say in the commercials, it only takes one mosquito to infect your dog with the deadly worms.
We have helped with several heart worm dogs, broken legs, and eye removals this past Spring– not to mention all of the neuters/spays. Without the support of our donors and our community businesses, these animals would not have a chance. We are sincerely thankful; but, as always, must ask that if you find yourself with a little extra money, please consider making a donation to save a life. ~ diana
6/19/19 – Rosie Roo is home with her family — Team Chance. When it comes to those who are un-adoptable due to age and/or special needs, 4 paws 1 heart makes a commitment — “’til death do us part”. We loved our Rosie. – Aunt Di
6/19/19 – Ginger was found amongst several vacant buildings. After being seen hit by a truck, she was rescued by some very kind people who asked people in the area if anyone was aware of her owner but no one knew anything. The rescuers immediately took her to a vet. The vet determined that Ginger had a break in her leg. The rescuers paid for pain medication and antibiotics and contacted us for help. Ginger had surgery where a pin was put in her leg to repair it. She is doing great and will be seeing the doctor again next week. Again, we are so thankful that we could help Ginger because the rescuers could not afford the expense but now they have a loving addition to their family. – Diana

“CHANCE: Goood morning Team Chance, as promised we’re going to share with you pics & stories of our beloved Roo. The top left pic is the one mom saw on Facebookunder For the Love of Louie *Michigan Lost Pet Lookers* that her finder posted that she found this lost dog. That was on Oct 5th, 2016. The look on that poor babys face haunted mom all night, she kept going back to that post and looking at that little face. Mom saw later that night that animal control had picked her up. Mom started messaging animal Control about her status, and at the same time she sent the pic to Auntie Di at 4 Paws 1 Heart with a simple message “Please call me re: this dog”. Of course Auntie Di called mom 1st thing in the morning. AUNTIE DI: “What would you like to do?”
MOM: “Go get her & foster her”.
Auntie Di without hesitation said “if they will give her to you, get her.” And with that, arrangements were made with the wonderful Animal Control Officer Lisa Taylor, and Auntie Debra & Mom brought Roo home. That 1st night she slept on the floor next to moms bed..Her nails were so long and spiraled she could barely walk, her fur was sooo matted. Pew!!! Did she ever stink!!! It was terrible!!! And that was how she got her name…Rosie⚘, Mom wanted to name her as far opposite of what she smelled like then..what she would be not what she smelled like then. The next morning when mom took her to the groomers…a very sneaky & sweet Auntie Anne Sadowski had already been to the groomer & paid for Rosie Roos grooming ❤. The bottom pic is after Roo came home smelling sweet, all soft, clean & comfy sleeping that 1st sleep of knowing life was about to change for her!!! – Mom”
6/18/19 – Daegan showed up in Nicole’s backyard and she actually found his owner. When she brought Daegan ‘home’, the owner threw him out of the house and said he didn’t want him. Daegan is only 6 months old and is very sweet. I received a call from one of our veterinary partners asking if we could cover his vaccines and health check, which, of course we did. Because Nicole already has dogs who are not thrilled with an ‘interloper’, she is in desperate need of finding a rescue or adopter for Daegan. He is scheduled for neutering, complements of 4p1h, next week. Anyone interested in this handsome boy, should contact Nicole at: email@example.com
Without you, we couldn’t do what we do. ~ diana
