7/8/18 – I love my City (St. Clair Shores) and the fact that our council people and City management continue to support our animal advocacy efforts. For over 4 years we have had an active Animal Care and Welfare Committee and with the support of Councilman Caron and our Communications Department, we have been able to provide helpful information to our residents. We have a pet food collection bin at City Hall and soon we will have a brochure rack with helpful information about pet care. And, here is one of many Nautical Tail segments hosted by our Committee member, Liz Nicosia and produced by our Communications Department.https://vimeo.com/278001881
4/24/18 – Beautiful Aria — Our friend Roberta K. was contacted recently about a cat in a feral colony who needed medical attention. Roberta was able to trap her and saw that there appeared to be something wrong with Aria’s eye. We were contacted and we had Aria seen by one of our favorite doctors at Patterson Veterinary. Aria was seen Saturday and it was confirmed that she has a cataract resulting in almost total blindness. Roberta will work with Aria in hopes that she can be domesticated so that a forever home can be found for her. Aria was already spayed so there is a good chance that she was a pet at one time. ~ diana
4/10/18 – RIP Sweet Denny. I’m so sorry that your owners did you wrong. Thank you, Dee and Shelley for loving him in the end and making his passage easier. Love you both. – diana
“Our hearts are once again in pieces 💔 Poor Denny had so much going on. He had kidney disease, he was full of infection that would require one side of his face to be sloughed off. He required hospitalization with a feeding tube, even so we, along with 4 Paws 1 Heart wanted to give him a chance to fight. If he wanted to fight, we would fight with him. But, Denny was extremely Feline Leukemia positive which is why things went bad so quickly. Even the Emergency hospital couldn’t save Denny. Thankyou to all who donated, thankyou 4 Paws 1 Heart. Aunt Shelly and I held and loved Denny as he was helped over the Bridge. We will be dark on our page the rest of today as we try to process and grieve the loss of Baby Bunny and Denny today. It’s been a rough 2 weeks 💔
Please take notice. Our rescue family has experienced similar results. Always re-test some time later. Especially if there were any infections when the test was taken. We’ve been told that tests can be wrong 30% of the time. – diana
“Found out today that one of my foster kitties is no longer testing positive for feline leukemia! (Yay!) She had a rough start in life, and you may notice she has a damaged eye, but she’s feeling great in spite of everything! She is a dilute calico, approx 1 y/o, spayed and utd on shots. Super sweet, too! As her brother is still not well, I’d like to find her a different foster home (or maybe even a forever home?) We are located in Macomb. I will transport and handle future vet $. PLEASE SHARE! – Carole Nadolski”
Ali aka Bentley.
I recently got an update from Bentley’s mom and this is what she said.
“I’ve never had a dog that hugged me so tight and loved me as much as Bent.. Skyy has always been my #1 but even she needs her space but not my boy. Honestly if he could live under my skin he would 💜🐶🖤🐶”
I love these updates..and this is the rewarding part of what I do. Words cannot describe how happy this makes my heart..
Bentley had a very rough start for the first 6 months of his life. He was itty bitty when I got him and he needed leg bandages for several months. His accident happened at 3 days old and nearly severed off his rear leg…but with critical care, bottle feeding, and dedication he survived. ♡ Gina ♡
1/6/18 – At about 12 weeks old, these sweeties, Rocky and Apollo, were found wandering the streets. 4 Paws 1 Heart took care of their medical, which included their neuter. They now have a loving home with their rescuer. It is only through a Village can we reduce the number of abandoned and stray animals needing our help. ~ diana
1/5/18 – We did confirm that the dog was in this man’s yard and he was just 6 feet away when two coyotes entered the yard and took his dog. Heartbreaking!!! Please be careful with your pets. Not only do you now have to worry about the frigid weather but you have to worry about animals who prey on small animals. We are so very sorry for this family and the trauma they have gone through. ~ diana
11/14/17 – Our new friends at 105.1Fm The Bounce. Great hearts and great cat house building skills. The team from left to right — me, Joanna, Rick Gudenau (otherwise known as The Boss), Gello, master cat house builder, and Tony, Logistics manager for 4 Paws 1 Heart.
10/12/17 – Sunny and Luna – These little 8-9 week old kittens were found outside of an office building. The rescuer was willing to keep them but needed help getting them neutered/spayed, vaccinated, and tested. Our mission is to reduce the number of homeless animals by providing medical treatment. To this end, we paid the medical and now these babies have a permanent loving home. ~ diana
