7/31/19 – A huge thank you to the Infinity and Ovation Yacht Charters for once again choosing 4 Paws 1 Heart as a Charity Partner. It was an absolute beautiful night and fun was had by all. But, more importantly, animals will be saved because of the generosity of our business community. If you haven’t partaken in a Summer Cruise on the Ovation, you are definitely “missing the boat”. Check out their website to see the future line up. Tickets sell out fast!! www.infinityandovaation.com
6/29/19 – We are so thankful for the many small businesses who support 4 Paws 1 Heart. Whether it’s sponsorships, raffle items, or fundraising events, they play an integral role in our success. Java Junk, Coffee Shop and Resale Store, is one of those. It just recently opened and through their connections with Gina, have chosen to place a donation jar in their store and to match whatever is collected. They will also donate any pet items so that we can distribute them to our rescue friends. We have already received 3 crates which came in handy just this past week. You can find the store at 37661 Gratiot in Clinton Twp., MI And, while you’re there, check out the Farmers Market store which is just a couple doors down. A family owned business who have supported us in the past. ~ diana
I want to thank the 160+ people who turned out for our Bowling Fundraiser on Saturday, May 11, 2019. From the look of things, I believe everyone had a good time and were very proud to make a difference in the lives of the abandoned and abused. I also want to sincerely thank our Sponsors and our Raffle Prize donors because, without them, we wouldn’t attract the numbers that we do.

Channel 4 news did a nice segment on “4 paws 1 heart”. We could not do this without your support. Thank you for helping us with our Mission.
1/23/19 – My husband, Tony, has played an integral role in the work of 4 Paws 1 Heart. He delivers donated food and supplies to rescuers and shelters, he runs to the bank and the post office, works the fundraisers, etc. And, yesterday, the two of us went to visit our friends at the Wedding Shoppe in Berkley. The Wedding Shoppe has chosen 4p1h as their Charity Partner for December and January. Shawn Spears-Vilk, who we’ve assisted with her rescues, has been our avid supporter. The Wedding Shoppe is absolutely amazing. Their gowns are like nothing I’ve seen. It made me want to go back 46 years and get married all over again. I would encourage anyone looking for a wedding gown to make the Wedding Shoppe your first stop.
On our way home, Tony and i once again talked about how one of the best things to come out of the 4p1h journey (besides assisting over 5500 animals) has been the wonderful, kind, and caring people we have met along the way — many of whom have become dear friends. Here is Shawn, Michelle, and I in front of the ‘Paw Wall’ and some of the kitties we have helped Shawn with. In fact, Michelle is the proud mom of two of them. ~ diana
