A Second Chance For Chance
SMOKEY: Roo, can I tell you a secret? Ashley told me her & Dusty have a wonderful Together Forever home waiting for them. I dont have a Forever Home waiting for me…do you think someone will want to dopt me???
ROO: Are you kidding me kid??? Have you seen you??? Why you’re absolutely purrrrfect!!! Dont you worry for one little minute about such things, mom will make sure your purrrfect family finds you. Until then we love you to the moon and back, you come ere and snuggle with ole Roo kid. I’m gonna tell you a story, and then I’m gonna tuck you in with your brother & sister and you’re gonna close those lil peepers and not worry anymore.
Silly kid, can you imagine Team??? We know his purrrfect family will see him any day now! I didnt want to stress the kid out reminding him he needs his shots and neuter first anyway and that’s all happening this Friday thanks to 4 Paws 1 Heart. That boy is purrfect I tell you, a little shy, but purrrfect! Sweet dreams Team, see you all tomorrow. Love ❤ Roo, Smokey, Chance & the Gang
12/2/18 – Over the years we have assisted a very kind person in her efforts to spay/neuter (and sometimes find homes) and care for a cat community. And now, she and her employer, The Wedding Shoppe,https://theweddingshoppe.net/ in Berkley, MI want to give back. 4 Paws 1 Heart has been selected as the Wedding Shoppe’s “charity to bless” by donating a portion of the December gown sales to 4 Paws 1 Heart. If you or a friend are planning a wedding, please check them out and tell them 4 Paws 1 Heart said “thanks”. ~ diana
12/2/18 – Mere words aren’t enough to thank the many businesses who have consistently supported 4 Paws 1 Heart. One of those businesses is Girlie Girl Salon and Boutique in Grosse Pointe Woods, MI. Once again they held a winter sale where a portion of their proceeds was donated to 4 Paws 1 Heart. Because of their generosity, 64 cats or 26 dogs will be spayed/neutered thus resulting in hundreds of unwanted cats/dogs from being born to die alone on the streets. Please support our generous business partners who do so much for us. ~ diana
12/2/18 – A huge thank you to our friends at the Utica Education Association Staywell (UEA) Committee for once again including 4 Paws 1 Heart in their Howl O Ween Hustle. Their support will allow us to spay/neuter 40 cats. When you consider that one female will produce a litter (averaging 5 kittens) three times a year for most of her life, that is 15 kittens a year who will not be born to live and die on the streets. – diana
12/1/18 – This past Wednesday I received the following e-mail:
“So my cousin gave me a kitty she found outside, about a year old I think, super skinny, looks like she has a little road rash on her back legs, and has a limp where she steps on her toes and THEN her actual paw (front left)
SHE does a weird thing where her head shakes almost like she’s shivering but just her head, (I’m afraid it might be neurological) and I can see her heart beat through her chest and it feels and looks really irregular, but
she’s super happy and loving and sweet and is purring, I want to rescue her and turn her life around but i can not afford a bunch of the large vet bills that I am now anticipating with her. She’s seriously the
sweetest cat ever and I’m just heart broken. Her name is Callie and although this is the second night having her, she already has a spot in the family and gets along great with her brother and sister, my other two pups.
Please let me know if you know anybody who can help! – Trevor”
Of course we were the ones to help. Callie saw one of our favorite vets, Dr. Zalac, the following day. Dr. Z ran a number of tests and found Callie to be severely dehydrated to the point where she needs a few days in the hospital receiving fluids. Please keep Callie in your prayers so that she can soon be reunited with her rescue family as a healthy, loving kitty. ~ diana

12/3/18 – UPDATE — Pumpkin Spice is back with her rescuer/foster and is doing great. She came through her surgery with flying colors. Anyone interested in adopting Pumpkin Spice, should contact: email@example.com
11/29/18 – Before you fall asleep tonight, please say a prayer for Pumpkin Spice. She will be having FHO (femoral head ostectomy) surgery tomorrow morning. You might remember that Pumpkin Spice was rescued from a cat colony. She is approximately 6 months old and can lay in a human lap for hours. She will be up for adoption upon recovery. I will let everyone know when she is back with her foster day. ~ diana
11/29/18 – We have had more feline eye removals and femur surgeries than I can remember over the last eight years. It truly has been a horrible period for felines over the last few months. This is Toots. He showed up Friday night (11/23/18) on a friend’s front lawn, limping. Our friend took her in and contacted us. He was taken to a vet the next day where it was determined that he had a broken leg. A splint was put on and he was given pain medication. Toots will be seeing one of our other veterinarians this week. It is very likely that he will also need surgery. The rescuer has not been able to find an owner at this time although all sources have been utilized. Toots appears to have been well taken care of so we suspect he either escaped or was thrown out because of her injury.
Your donation can be doubled this week during the $2,000 Giving Tuesday Max Match Campaign. Thank YOU for your support. ~ diana
11/29.18 – Ali (aka Bentley) was caught in a recliner when he was just days old. After several surgeries and the amazing care by his rescuer, Gina, Ali was adopted to the best home ever and look at him today. With much love for our ‘little’ guy.
