Ruby – Found Covered With Scabs; One Half of Her Ear Was Missing

5/13/18 – Happy Mother’s Day from Ruby! Ruby was found wandering the streets. She was covered with scabs, one half of her ear was missing, and she was scrawny and malnourished. Ruby had a collar on that was so tight it was imbedded in her neck. Her feet were flat from spending her puppy life in a cage. It took several months for Ruby to no longer be afraid and to get healthy but here she is when she was first rescued and now with an update from our partners at Friends ofScooby. Working together is the only way we can make a difference. ~ Diana
“One more update for everyone! Rubyyyyy!
I paid for her shots and mange treatment.
Diana & 4 Paws 1 Heart paid for her spay.
A few months later she was adopted by an amazing family up north! I get an update on her every 6-8 weeks. She has made some amazing changes from the dog i first met. ~ Megan”

Kuz – Found With Severe Mange, Emaciated, and Heart Worm Positive

5/14/18 – Prayers for Kuz as he gets ready to start his heart worm treatment. We are thankful to our many rescue friends, veterinarians, and supporters who make a difference in the lives of the abandoned and abused. ~ diana

“A little over a month ago we found out this guy had a slew of health problems and heartworms to top it all off. Diana and 4 Paws 1 Heart are his saving grace. They are sponsoring the heartworm treatment. He had bloodwork and started doxycycline to begin treatment. He was started on milk thistle and cranberry for his liver and kidneys. And he was sent up north to be cared for.
Today he had the staging done and more bloodwork. His bloodwork looked good (greatly improved) and he will start the shots on Monday.
Thank you Linda for being his caregiver and making sure he gets to his appointments.
Thank you Diana & 4 Paws 1 Heart 💗~ Megan”

Bunny – Bounced Around; Heart Worm Positive

5/11/18 – Bunny was heart worm positive, full of parasites, and acted as if she never had one-on-one love. I took her in to foster her for several weeks and 4 paws 1 heart offered to cover her medical care. She has started the beginning treatment for heart worm and she is now with 313 K9 and Kitty Rescue. She is looking for a more permanent foster situation or a home while she undergoes her treatment. Please consider making a donation towards her care.
Bunny was found on the street, had a stay in boarding, then transferred to my house, and then transported to her foster family and then on to the next temporary foster situation, and now she is looking for another foster or permanent home. This poor dog has been bounced around so much in such a short period of time, I would love to hear of someone being interested in giving her a forever home! She is an amazing dog! I have fostered many dogs and there are only a few that I have considered keeping. She is one of them. Please contact the rescue group if you are interested in finding out more information or in meeting her. They sent me a photo of her with an adult cat, so apparently she gets along with felines. ~ Ginabunny 5:11:18 w:ginaBunny w:Gina 5:11:18

Anna Belle – Found in the Middle of the Street; Heart Worm Positive

5/10/18 – Don’t forget–your donations will be doubled this week!
This is Anna Belle. We received a call for help and because of our supporters we were able to respond.
She was seen in the middle of major roads and after 3 days of trying, she was finally safe, in the ‘arms’ of the rescuer. She was brought to a veterinary clinic where they advised she was heart worm positive. Unfortunately, no owner was found and although the rescuer was anxious to give her a forever family, they could not afford the heart worm treatment. We were happy to make that happen. Here is the rescuer’s most recent message:

“Isn’t she a beautiful Girl , So sweet and good .
I want to Thank you and your company for all you do .
My family’s heart go out to u.
She reminds me of my pure breed German Shepherd. Anna Bell has the same eyes and sweet demeanor
Thanks again Diana . God bless you .

According to his rescuer, he is a big beautiful dog. 4 Paws 1 Heart will be taking care of his neuter so he will be ready for a new forever home. We wish Major the very best! ~ diana

John Doe – Rescued After Being Thrown Out of a Vehicle

4/30/18 – John Doe was rescued after being thrown out of a car on a busy highway. John is very emaciated and had a ‘lump’ on his back. We approved for John to see our vet the next day and he was found to be heart worm negative. The lump appears to be a cyst. He is a very sweet dog who appears to have been abused and possibly used in fighting but was not mean enough. 4 Paws 1 Heart has committed to his medical needs and once he is healthy enough, he will get started with his heart worm treatment, neuter, and vaccines. Please remember that donations are needed more than ever this time of the year. Heart worm becomes overwhelming as well as the many instances of severe upper respiratory infections in cats and kittens — not to mention all of the kittens being born right now. Donations can be made by using the link on this page (on the left) or by mail at P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI 48080. Thank You for Making a Difference. ~ diana

Hamilton – Standing in the Middle of the Road; Emaciated and Heart Worm Positive

4/25/18 – Meet Hamilton. He was standing in the middle of the street with cars passing all around him. His paws were red and raw. He was emaciated and had a lump on his back. We were called and, of course, we said yes. Hamilton saw one of our partner vets yesterday and the ‘lump’ will need to be removed but it appears non-cancerous. Unfortunately, Hamilton, like so many dogs rescued recently, is heart worm positive although, thankfully, it is a low grade. We will be covering Hamilton’s heart worm treatment, his neuter when it’s time, and removal of the tumor from his back. But, we need your help!!! Donations have been very slow, and as all of our friends know, the money to help runs out quickly. Donations can be made by using the donation link on this page or by mail at P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI 48040. We will keep you updated. As you can see, Hamilton is a little charmer. ~ dianahammi hamilton8:23:18hammi:hamilton 4:24:18
