Java Junk, Clinton Twp,(Gratiot, just north of Metropolitan Parkway) is a great place to do some shopping. They have been strong supporters of 4 paws 1 heart since their beginning. And, after you have a coffee and do a little shopping, visit the Farmer’s Market just a couple doors down. They are also strong supporters of 4p1h. They have lots of annuals and vegetables and a great meat counter.
5/27/20 – This little family will be going in to get ‘the works’. The mama was found with her 1 week old kittens. They are now 5 weeks old and two are already spoken for. But, before everyone gets their furever homes, they will be spayed/neutered/vaccinated, and mama will be tested for FIV/FeLV — complements for 4p1h. Unfortunately, we all knew this would happen when our great veterinarians were unable to spay/neuter and were restricted to emergency care only. Thank you so very much for all of your support. – diana
5/25/20 – Please wish our co-founder, Gina DeLuca Jenio and her husband, Dave Jenio, many years of happiness. Their wedding celebration had to be postponed due to the virus but they still said their vows in a private ceremony. On their wedding day, many friends, family and neighbors got together to wish them the best during a huge drive by which actually made the local news. Here is Gina and Dave with Skippy, best dog man, and Angel, maid dog of honor. Skippy was rescued after being surrendered. Angel, was dying from Parvovirus when Gina took her in and saved her. Angel has been a blood donor and foster mom for many kittens and puppies. The Jenio’s are a beautiful family. May God Bless Them! – diana
During the last 5 weeks we have seen SEVERAL new puppies brought into the vet hospital per day!!! If you or someone you know has a puppy please educate yourself about this virus. Also, check into pet insurance especially for emergencies! I have seen medical care range from $500 to $3000 on average and there is NO guarantee your puppy will survive because just like every virus it depends on how they respond to treatment.
A friend and LVT made the below post…
PARVO SEASON folks!! Don’t start walking your new puppies and showing them off until they are FULLY VACCINATED. Which is around 4 months of age after around 4 series spread out over 3-4 weeks between each series depending on the age they were initially vaccinated. Have questions? Call a veterinary clinic. Don’t ask google, your breeder, your best friend, your groomer, or tractor supply, etc. Seek people with knowledge and actual credentials for your questions. We love to help and we prefer you call us, don’t think you’re being annoying or silly ❤️🐾 We hate to see you in a few weeks, having to make difficult financial and emotional decisions because you got the wrong advice or were uninformed ✌🏻
3/14/20 – In the best interest of all of our supporters, the April 5, 2020 Drag Queen Bingo fundraiser has been cancelled and will be rescheduled. I will be in contact with all of those who have already paid. We can either keep your payment for the rescheduled event or refund your money. If you paid by check, I will send you a letter or you can contact me at: firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know what you would like to do. I will be talking with the venue later today to come up with another date. We are thinking late September/October because we know how busy the summer is. Also, don’t forget that we still have the May 16 bowling fundraiser planned. Thank you for your understanding and support. – diana
1/7/20 – I try not to overload with our stories but there are so many to tell. Here are five beauties, all found on the street, their spay/neuter had already been scheduled but they needed immediate help for upper respiratory infections. In some cases, the first round of antibiotics did not work and additional meds were prescribed. Also, FeeFee may have pneumonia and may need a chest x-ray. We are following up on that. Here is Lil Bit, Precious, FeeFee, Garfield, and Little Lady. Only with your donations can we possibly afford to help all of these animals. – Diana

11/17/19 – As anyone who follows us or asks us for medical assistance knows, part of our mission is to also assist with finding that forever home. That is why we offer courtesy posts on petfinder and why we will collect food to help those we’ve helped medically. This partnership will help our village with their cat adoptions and help the many cat and dog rescuers feed their rescues while in the process.
The Village should never be taken lightly in that together we can make miracles happen. – Diana
