10/3/18 – A kind woman contacted us about Shadow who had shown up at her front door the other day. She learned from the maintenance person that last February he saw her owners dumping her in the woods after they moved out of the complex. Once again, can you possibly imagine dumping your pet in the woods to be preyed upon and to live without shelter in the cold, snow, heat, and rain??? The maintenance guy said that he had seen the very emaciated cat chased by coyotes on a number of occasions and had actually hoped the coyote would catch her and ‘take care of the problem’. Thankfully, the good Samaritan brought Shadow into the home and contacted us. Shadow will receive all of the medical needed complements of 4 Paws 1 Heart. Thank God for good Samaritans. ~ diana
9/30/18 – Meet Barb. This little beauty was found by a good Samaritan who reached out to us to assist with her basic medical needs which includes testing, vaccines, flea/parasite treatment, and spay/neuter when old enough. We are always happy to keep more unwanted babies from being born.
9/29/18 – My heart breaks with Cortney. Her family gave Chance so much love and we tried so hard to give her as much time as possible. Our doctor warned that doing nothing could result in the tumor bursting, resulting in much pain and emergency euthanasia. Please keep Cortney, her family, and Chance in your prayers this morning. – diana
“Tomorrow is the day. The day Chance has to cross the rainbow bridge. 🌈 THE day, the day my heart is going to break 1000000 times over, the day I’ll remember every little thing you’ve done since you’ve been with me. Tomorrow is the day you’ll be put to rest my sweet Chance. I’ve never had to do this before so it is not going to be a good day. 😭 In the end, I know I loved you to the best of my ability, spoiled you to the best of my ability and had I not found 4 Paws 1 Heart I wouldn’t have been able to do a damn thing for you!
So when I say I thank you Diana Rascano from the bottom of my heart I truly mean it with every bone in my body. I loved chance I still do I’ve loved her until it hurt I’ve cried over her multiple nights when she first came to me and I didn’t think she was going to make it another day. I’ve had her for a little over a year now and she’s become part of my family. She fought, she fought so fucking hard, excuse my language but I’m pouring my feelings right now. She gained so much weight and she wasn’t supposed to and that was a good sign! She was my first rescue that needed medical, I poked her with a needle twice a day! I shoved antibiotics down her throat when she hated me, she scratched me, she fought it every time. I always said I can’t adopt her out and when her condition didn’t get any better I knew I really couldn’t adopt her out. I had to be her safety net. Now, i have to prevent her from suffering and it’s the hardest damn thing I’ve ever had to do!
I’m getting cold feet, like I’m a man at the alter but i know I can’t risk her tumor bursting and her being an emergency euthanasia and hurting, i can’t make her suffers. She’s been peeing on my Counters for 5 months we tried to treat her, we tried so hard to save her. She started peeing clots and her time is so near i can feel
It. I can feel it when she snuggles me tight, when she purrs in my ear from 11pm till 6am. I feel her pain and it’s killing me.
I hate that she had to suffer I have no idea how long she was on the streets when I found her, i don’t know what she’s endured, what kind of love she’s felt but I do know that I have loved her so hard and that I will always love her. 😪 p.s I do not do outdoor cats and her outdoor excursions were strictly monitored from the minute I took her out to the minute I took her inside, I just wanted her to experience anything and everything she wanted. – Cortney”
9/29/18 – Charlie was found with half of a tail, weighing only 12 ounces, and about 7 weeks old. He was covered in fleas and feces. He was dewormed over a 3 day period and bathed in Dawn. When healthy enough, he will be neutered, vaccinated, and tested. Anyone interested in this handsome boy should contact Cortney at: email@example.com ~ diana
9/28/18 – Flower and Spock were found alone on the streets. Because of our amazing supporters, 4 Paws 1 Heart was able to pay for their medical treatment which included treatment for roundworms, spay/neuter, vaccines, and testing. AND, the great news is that they have found their forever home TOGETHER. Thanks to Shawn for rescuing these beauties and finding them a forever home. ~ diana
