Buddy – Rescued in 2017 is now Mr. February, 2018

1/22/18 – Buddy is Mr. February in the 4 Paws 1 Heart 2018 Calendar. ~ diana

1/20/17 – This handsome guy was found wandering the streets. We were contacted by a rescue friend who asked if we could help the nice couple who found him. Ofcourse, we did and Buddy was taken to the veterinary to be scanned for a microchip, vaccinated and scheduled for neutering. Although very sweet and obviously welcoming human contact and love, no microchip could be found. Buddy has found his forever home with this loving couple known by our rescue friend and we are so happy we could help in their endeavor to give Buddy a second chance at life. ~ dianabuddy 1:20:17buddy 2017buddy 1:20:17==

Damian – A Skin Allergy and Ear Infection Almost Resulted in Him Going to a High-Kill Shelter

1/19/18 – Meet Damian. He was taken to the veterinary clinic to be euthanized because his ears kept getting infected. He is only two years old. The caring veterinarian refused to do that and asked the owners to surrender Damian to the hospital; which they did. The doctor determined that Damian has a food allergy and can only eat kangaroo based food, which is quite expensive. The doctor placed tubes in Damian’s ears with medication and he has not had an ear ache since. Damian is now in foster and if you are interested, please check out the Make A Difference Animal Rescue website. Prayers that this sweet boy finds his forever loving home. ~ diana

Melly – Almost Dumped at a Shelter

1/17/18 – Melly’s owner, an 18 year old who left for Florida, was going to dump him on the streets or in a shelter; instead he surrendered this sweetheart to Paws With a Mission who then contacted us for some medical assistance. We were happy to assist with Melly’s neuter, vaccines, and heart worm test. Anyone interested should contact Paws With a Mission. ~ dianamelly 1:12:18melly w:paws with a mission 1:3:18melly w:paws with a mission

Annie – Four Days Old and Overlooked by Her Owners

1/15/18 – annie 1:15:18Meet my new orphan puppy. Female Chihuahua, weighing 5 ounces and only 4 days old. Five puppies were born and the mom wanted nothing to do with them. Unfortunately, this is not uncommon and many puppies don’t survive. This last puppy was given a chance just before it was too late. She was surrendered over to 4 paws 1 heart.. I immediately began tube feeding her and she is doing well. I will be caring for her around the clock and I’ll post updates.♡ Gina

Baby – She Was Found Running the Streets; No Owner Could Be Found

1/12/18 – This is Baby. Someone called Erica (an independent rescuer we have worked with in the past) weeks ago about a stray purple poodle running 7 mile in Detroit. Erica picked her up, and got her cleaned up. Baby appeared rather healthy and cared for. Due to the purple paws, she felt that she had a home somewhere. Erica tried really hard to find her owners but no one was found. She was loved at one point before becoming displaced. Recently she began wobbling/shaking a bit and she appeared to have a skin issue. Erica is committed to this girl as far as fostering her. She is approximately 6 years old. 4 Paws 1 Heart has committed to helping Baby and she was recently treated at the vet and spayed. We are hoping that an imbalance in her glucose levels may have caused the wobbling. Anyone interested in Baby should contact Erica at: ericadiola@gmail.com ~ dianababy 1:12:18

Rosie Roo – Needs Dental Surgery — Once Again

1/11/18 – Just a reminder of how your donations make a difference in the lives of those most vulnerable. Rosie is the very sweetest dog I’ve ever met. When Tony and I visited, she just stuck by us, loving to be petted and loved. My heart swells when I think of her being so loved now after, God only knows, what she went through on the streets as a senior, once pet. ~ diana

“Wow!!! Thanks to some very special friends my Birthday Fundraiser for 4 Paws 1 Heartis already 2/3 of the way to my goal!!! Thankyou to those who have donated so far. As most of you know my heart is with special needs furkids. Hospice like Carlos was, physical challenges like Chance & Carla, emotional trauma like Phoenix, and seniors like Rosie Roo here. This is a before & after of our 16yr old Rosie. She’s been with us 1yr & 4mo. I saw her before photo on Love of Louie as a found stray going to Warren Animal Control. I sent her pic to Diana Rascano at 4paws1heart knowing she was a senior, needing medical care who wouldn’t do well in a shelter. Diana gave me the ok, the animal control officer was very kind to let me pick her up and after numerous vet visits including 21 teeth pulled, shots, visits for various other ailments Rosie is living her golden yrs in comfort, eating home cooked meals, sleeping in my bed and is sooo loved! None of this would be possible without 4paws1heart. So please help me, help them, to continue making happy endings for animals like Rosie Roo⚘~ Denise”rosie roo 1:10:18

Twyla – Honoring Law Enforcement Men and Women

1/9/18 – In honor of National Law Enforcement Appreciation Day, I thought it appropriate to share Twyla’s story (she was saved by a police officer) once again with you. Every day there are caring police officers who not only protect the citizens of their communities, but will not turn their back when they see an animal in need. In St. Clair Shores, we have a very caring officer, Sgt. Eidt, who is a member of our Animal Care and Welfare Committee. Every night when she is on duty she keeps her eyes out for animals in trouble and works hard to educate and protect. In our Michigan State Police, there is Trooper Kuhn, who, with his partner, saved Joy (see our website for her story). I’m sure that our many supporters know of an officer in their community; if you do, please share on this post. Again, a huge thank you to the men and women serving our communities to protect humans and animals.
Please share Twyla’s store and help us find our little Twyla her forever home. – May God Bless and watch over our Laws Enforcement Officers and their families. ~ diana
