12/28/17 – So, as scheduled, Jacob Savoie and Family met Tony and I at the Macomb County Animal Control Shelter. Unfortunately, Chief Randazzo, who was to meet us and conduct the tour, was called out on an emergency rescue. Thankfully, Ryan stepped up to do the tour. As you can see, we presented Jacob, who raised $1,705 and hundreds of pounds of food which was donated to the Shelter and to 4 Paws 1 Heart for distribution to our rescue partners, with a certificate recognizing him as the 4 Paws 1 Heart “Rescuer of the Year”. Everyone toured the shelter, the young ladies, Brook, Emma, and Aly (Jacob is allergic) spent time playing with some kitties and then — Chief Randazzo returned before we left. There he was with the duck rescued from the freezing waters in Harrison Twp. This very traumatized duck had a fishing line around his legs and he was trapped in the ice. Between the County and Chesterfield Twp, this sweet animal was saved.
12/27/17 – Today Chief Randazzo of the Macomb County Animal Control Shelter will be giving a tour for the young man who collected bottles, cans, food, and supplies for 4 Paws 1 Heart and the animals we help. Jacob, his mom, and family will be presenting some food and supplies to the shelter and I will have the joy of meeting all of them.
Also, if you are interested in making a difference in the lives of abandoned animals, our calendars are now available. $10 of every calendar sold goes directly to the animals. The calendars are $15 each and if you would like me to mail you one, please add $3 for shipping. Payments can be made through paypal on the left of this page or by mail. If you would like more than one or two, we can make arrangements for delivery. It’s a great way to remind yourself of the many animals whose lives have been saved because of a community who cares.
2/23/17 – A huge thanks to all of you who have been donating during our $2,000 Secret Santa Match Challenge which ends December 25, 2017 and to the many supporters who participated in our fundraisers during the past year. Although it took awhile, I finally got the group photo of the over 100 people who attended our August, 2017 United Shore Professional Baseball game fundraiser. ~ diana
12/14/17 – Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to our many supporters. Jacob has restored my faith in young people and humanity. He started off with a goal of collecting donations and cans/bottles that would allow him to donate $500 to 4 Paws 1 Heart. BUT, the whole town of Armada, MI came together to support this 12 year old young man. At this time, he has surpassed $1,000 and he and his family have collected hundreds of pounds in dog and cat food and supplies. May God Bless Jacob and his family and all of the good, caring people of Armada for their generosity. Many animals will be helped because of their generosity and many bellies will be full for the holidays. www.gofundme.com/jacobs-act-of-kindness-fundraiser
