12/2/18 – Over the years we have assisted a very kind person in her efforts to spay/neuter (and sometimes find homes) and care for a cat community. And now, she and her employer, The Wedding Shoppe,https://theweddingshoppe.net/ in Berkley, MI want to give back. 4 Paws 1 Heart has been selected as the Wedding Shoppe’s “charity to bless” by donating a portion of the December gown sales to 4 Paws 1 Heart. If you or a friend are planning a wedding, please check them out and tell them 4 Paws 1 Heart said “thanks”. ~ diana
12/2/18 – Mere words aren’t enough to thank the many businesses who have consistently supported 4 Paws 1 Heart. One of those businesses is Girlie Girl Salon and Boutique in Grosse Pointe Woods, MI. Once again they held a winter sale where a portion of their proceeds was donated to 4 Paws 1 Heart. Because of their generosity, 64 cats or 26 dogs will be spayed/neutered thus resulting in hundreds of unwanted cats/dogs from being born to die alone on the streets. Please support our generous business partners who do so much for us. ~ diana
12/2/18 – A huge thank you to our friends at the Utica Education Association Staywell (UEA) Committee for once again including 4 Paws 1 Heart in their Howl O Ween Hustle. Their support will allow us to spay/neuter 40 cats. When you consider that one female will produce a litter (averaging 5 kittens) three times a year for most of her life, that is 15 kittens a year who will not be born to live and die on the streets. – diana

10/8/18 – WARNING: Sweetest Day is just around the corner – October 20, 2018. For those of you who don’t know, per Wikepedia, Sweetest Day was “started by Herbert Birch Kingston, a Cleveland, Ohio philanthropist and candy company employee. He wanted to bring happiness to orphans, shut-ins and under-privileged. His intent was to show these people that they were not forgotten. In 1922, he started this holiday by giving candy and small gifts.”
So in the spirit of the original Sweetest Day, one of our Board members has decided to match up to $1,500 in donations made during the week of October 13 through October 20. What better gift can you give to your ‘sweetie’ than the gift of life. Your donations have given many forgotten and abused a second chance, let’s keep it going. AND, if you give me enough time, I would be happy to email your Sweetheart a special acknowledgement. Just let me know in the remarks who and where to send. P.S. Here are three little souls saved by our friend Cortney and medically backed by 4paws1heart. Anyone interested in adopting Flash, Volt, or Piglet, contact Cortney at: firstname.lastname@example.org
Billy will be seeing a specialist on September 13. We fully expect the surgery to be scheduled shortly after. Prayers for our baby. – diana
“It’s that time again Team… time for treats, kisses & cuddles to be passed out, meds too. Time for Billy & Carla to be tucked into their beds and all of us to say our prayers and get ready for our nitenites. It’s also time to say thankyou to all of our friends who have donated to help with Billy’s ongoing vet bills and to help make his upcoming surgery possible, your kindness and generosity is so appreciated and means so much. Billy is so deserving of this chance to live a normal, painfree kitten life. With everything he’s going through, he never stops purring! What an amazing, brave little boy. Please if you havent donated yet, consider donating to give Billy his Second Chance.
Sweet dreams Team Chance, we love you all to the moon & back! Love ❤ Chance, Billy & the Gang”

8/19/18 – Looking Back at the Many Miracles. Remember Snickers. It was 2013 when a young man found this very sick kitten in an icy puddle in an alley in Hamtramck, MI. A village came together to get him to the emergency hospital where Gina worked. We thought he’d lose an eye but with lots of love and medical attention, both he and his eye survived. Up to $1,500 in donations will be matched during our Anniversary Week. You too can make a difference. Donations can be made at:http://4paws1heart.org/donations/
