1/30/18 – HAPPY UPDATE: It was July, 2014 when this momma and her baby, Chloe, were rescued from a filthy, junk-filled garage. The garage was filled to the rafters and provided the cats easy access to the roof. They were so infested with fleas, they were anemic. But with the help of 4 Paws 1 Heart and their loving rescuer, Chloe and mom found their forever home. Here they are today, and how they looked in 2014 after being rescued. ~ diana
1/29/18 – This young boy ended up in Animal Control after he fled since the evening of January 13th. He disappeared when his home was turned into a crime scene. His owners were murdered.
His owner’s family retrieved him from Animal Control and turned him over to a friend who happens to be a friend of 4 Paws 1 Heart. Understandably, he was traumatized and depressed; he was missing approximately 2 weeks.
He is emaciated (68 pounds and bones sticking out every where) and hadseveral sores all over his body. The pads of his feet were missing chunks of flesh and bloody.
With the help of 4 Paws 1 Heart he saw the vet and was neutered, tested, and treated with antibiotics. He was also heart worm tested which tested negative. His sores were all cleaned up and his ears were cleaned out. He will start a special diet to fatten him up. The rescue organization, DCDogos, will be taking Jax into their rescue. Please check out their site if you are interested. A very sad story will have a happy beginning. ~ diana

1/27/18 – Happy Update! At about 12 weeks old, sweet emaciated Santa was found before Christmas with a severe upper respiratory infection and low body temperature. Thankfully, our great friends at Hartrick Veterinary were able to take her in as soon as she was trapped and started treatment. Then, last week, the rescuer noticed that Santa seemed to be losing some fur and it was determined she had a fungus. Again, we were happy to get Santa treated. Now look at how well ls doing. Love and medical care means everything. ~ diana
My (foster) Little Orphan Annie is 2 weeks old today! Her little eyes opened this morning Annie now weighs about half a pound and she is a beautiful little girl! ♡ Here is a quick little video of me trying to balance her body, feed her with one hand, and video with the other….pretty challenging Lol! ♡
If you ever wonder where your donations go… this is where it is. It’s all about giving animals like Annie a fighting chance of survival. 4 Paws 1 heart will take care of her medical needs from now until she is ready to be placed into a home.. She has a long way to go, but I am very hopeful that she will do well. ♡ Gina ♡
1/26/18 – Lucy Lu was an intact female whose owners also owned an intact male. After Lucy had kittens, the owners didn’t want her any more and were going to take her to a shelter. Fortunately, Cortney heard of the situation and had the owner surrender Lucy to her and then she contacted 4 Paws 1 Heart. Poor little Lucy was emaciated and flea infested. Once again we were thrilled to save another life; Lucy was spayed, vaccinated, and treated for fleas. She had another visit with the vet just this past week to get further treatment but the doctor said she is doing great. Anyone interested in sweet Lucy should contact Cortney at: email@example.com ~ diana
1/25/18 – CeeCee was abandoned by her owners about a year ago. A neighbor has been feeding her since but recently noticed she looked pregnant. The kind person couldn’t stand the thought of a 9 lb. baby having kittens in these below- freezing temperatures and contacted our friend, Rachel G. Rachel G. contacted me to see if we could assist. Of course we did. CeeCee was able to get into the vet yesterday and was found to be about two weeks away from having 4 kittens!! Can you imagine if these little babies would have been born in this cold? Chances are that everyone would have died. CeeCee is now in a foster home — safe and warm. She will be under Ferndale Cat Shelter who will eventually find everyone their forever homes. God Bless the rescuers. ~ diana
1/22/16 – She was stuffed in a carrier half the size of what she needed. She was put out at the curb during a rain storm like garbage. We have no idea how long this sweetheart was there at the curb or kept in that carrier but a kind woman in a u-haul, on her way to another State, noticed her and brought her to the Emergency. She was kept somewhere, long enough, without food, that she felt the need to eat the items in the carrier. After being rescued, emaciated and wet, she had emergency surgery where much fabric and other articles were found. I have literally never seen an animal so broken and despondent. I couldn’t help but cry and pray that we could some how make her whole again. Her eyes were so vacant and her spine was curved because of too many days in a small carrier. With 4 Paws 1 Heart $, the professional staff at the Animal Urgent and Critical Care Center, Gina’s love, and the care and training provided by our good friend, Carrie, of Lil’ Dogs Resort, I again present to you, Katniss Everdeen — forever loved. Happy Friday morning! This is how your donations make miracles happen ~ diana
