Nicko – Found, Heart Worm Positive, by a Caring Tow Truck Driver

8/16/17 – A caring tow-truck driver found Nicko roaming the street. Because the Michigan Humane Society was closed that day, he took her home. It didn’t take long for the family to get attached to her. Attempts were made to find an owner without success. The family decided to make Nicko their new family member and brought her to the vet to be spayed/vaccinated/tested. unfortunately, Nicko was found to be heart worm positive. The rescuer asked for our help so that they could give Nicko a happy, loving home. Nicko started her heart worm treatment on August 3 with one of our favorite veterinaries — Five Mile Animal Hospital. Another life saved. ~ diananicko 8:21:17nicko 8:21:17---

Celebrating our 7th Anniversary –

8/18/17 – Please help us celebrate our 7th Anniversary by making a donation to 4 Paws 1 Heart. It is only with your donations and support can we continue to make a difference in the lives of so many animals and the families who adopt them. As of today, we have paid $527,705 in medical bills for over 4,000 animals. And, looking ahead, we have made commitments for 2 heart worm cases, two eye removals, two amputations, and many spay/neuter/vaccinations coming up. If not for the creation of 4 Paws 1 Heart, these abandoned and stray animals would have either died horrible deaths on the street or would have been euthanized. As co-founder and President of 4p1h, I have to tell you how humbled I am by the amount of support we have received from our community of animal advocates. This includes the rescuers, the fosters, the veterinarians who work with us, and, most importantly, our donors, because without you, we could do nothing! I have developed unbelievable friendships through this journey and that has just been icing on the cake. Celebration donations can be made by using the donation link on this page or on our website, 4paws1heart.org , or by mail at P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI . 48080. Again, thank you from the bottom of my heart and a huge ‘thank you’ from our Board of Directors. ~ dianamolly 8:201720842168_1616156641749961_317548170291374046_n20800226_1616156875083271_1536467099039270532_n20882101_1616157261749899_1284142395185997880_n

“Happy Anniversary and so everyone who orders on amazon they have an Amazon smile page where you can get donations to a non profit of your choice with every dollar you spend.

He is happy and loved. Thank you 4paws1heart. Tami”

Coda – Rescued from the Streets; Tested Heart Worm Positive

9/4/17 Update – Unfortunately Coda died in an accident.  May he rest in peace. ~ diana

coda w:harry gordon 7:21:178/13/17 – I know I’ve already said this, but the overwhelming need continues. This is Coda. He was rescued from the street in July. We approved having him neutered, vaccinated, and tested. Unfortunately, it turns out that he is positive for heart worm. We will pay for the heart worm treatment but it is always a dilemma as to whether a heart worm positive dog should be spayed/neutered until he/she is heart worm free. Anyone familiar with dogs understands that behavior is very different when an animal is intact and finding a foster/rescue for an intact animal can be very difficult. Coda’s rescuer decided to have Coda neutered and he is doing well. Coda will start the 30-day pre-heart worm treatment. Anyone interested in Coda should contact gordon.harry0@gmail.com . ~ diana

Lydia – Left Behind by Her Owners

8/7/17 – Let’s try and start this week off on a happy note. Last week was probably the worst 4 paws 1 heart week in 7 years. This is sweet Lydia. She was left behind by her owners but fortunately, a very committed animal advocate came across her and contacted us. Lydia had a wound on her back and needed to be treated for fleas/parasites; fortunately, she was heart worm free! She was spayed and now — dada — she has been adopted. I’m so happy for Lydia. This is what it’s all about. ~ dianalydia 8:7:17lydia 8:7:17---

Mac and Luna Find Their Forever Homes

8/6/17 – 4 Paws 1 Heart’s mission is: “Reduce the Number of Abandoned Animals by Funding Medical Treatment for Abandoned, Abused, and Stray Companion Animals”. Since August 18, 2010 we have paid $523,972 for over 4,000 animals. But, over the years we have evolved and recognized that there is also a need to assist independent/individual rescuers in the adoption process. Consequently, we offer a courtesy petfinder site (only available to 501c3 organizations) and the Friends of 4 Paws 1 Heart facebook page to all of those individuals who not only rescue an abandoned/abused animal but who also have committed to finding the best home. We are happy too say that over the past (almost) 7 years, 182 animals were adopted into great homes because of our combined efforts. This doesn’t include the many animals who found their forever homes with the rescuers or their friends/families. This is Mac and Luna — both recently adopted with the assistance of 4p1h. A huge thank you to our Board member, Cynthia Wojtowycz, who administers these sites and ensures each animal has the best “write up” and our friend, Lori White Stephens who rescued these animals, took them several times to the vet, and sought out the perfect homes. ~ diana
