4/17/17 – 4 Paws 1 Heart is humbled to announce the BRAD and AUDRA LAUBERT MATCHING GIFT CHALLENGE in memory of Bradley K. Laubert (1980 – 2017) and his sister, Audra M. Laubert (1967 – 2014).

Brad and Audra were long-time residents of St. Clair Shores and shared a passion for rescuing cats and dogs. Brad’s Mr. Bittens was his shadow. Although we mourn the loss of two very wonderful people, we hope their family can find solace in knowing that Brad and Audra’s legacies will live on in the many animals who will be saved by this very generous Matching Challenge. ~ diana

3/8/17 – International Woman’s Day – Make a donation today in honor of that special woman in your life. She may be a mother, a manager, a teacher, a business owner, a veteran, a rescuer — any woman who has made a difference in this world. My donation today will be in honor of one of the strongest women I have ever known, my grandmother. Born in 1904 and finding herself pregnant at just 17, spent time in a home for unwed mothers until her child was born. Her son went on to be a WW II veteran who was like a second father to me.
And, talking about women who have tried to make a difference. 4 Paws 1 Heart was founded by two women. Me, (Diana Rascano, retired Director from DTE Energy), and Gina Deluca, Licensed Veterinarian Technician (extraordinaire). With the help of four phenomenal business women, our organization became a 501c3 and a Board was put in place. Today our Board consists of 9 very smart, hard working, and caring women who go above and beyond to raise funds that will be used for medical treatment for abandoned, stray, and abused animals. Since August of 2010, 4 Paws 1 Heart has paid $480,856 in medical bills for over 4,000 animals. And, we couldn’t have done it without the financial support of our followers. Donations can be made through paypal on this page, on our website,www.4paws1heart.org, or by mail at P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI . 48080. Please share and remember that 99 cents for every dollar donated, goes directly to the medical care of the animal.
3/5/17 – Please join us for all or some of our future events. Remember that our Bowling Event sells out fast. The cost is $20 per person for 3 games, shoes, and pizza. I will be posting flyers over the next few week. Also, we will be looking for lane sponsors and sponsors for our fun 5K. Contact me at email@example.com if you have any questions.
