I have some pretty great news about Binx aka Halloween Kitten!
A friend and supporter of 4 Paws 1 heart contacted me last week after she saw my post about him being ready for a forever home.. She came to meet him last Saturday and of course fell in love. He is a special little guy. I’ve had to do bandage changes on his wound since Halloween.. This pic was 2 days ago and it looks beautiful! I feel that he is more than ready to take the next step in his journey and bond with his forever mom. I’ve done my part.. Thank you all for the prayers which totally worked! Don’t forget that during this week of “Giving”, your donations will be matched up to $2,000. We couldn’t make these miracales happen without your support ~ Gina

Venus – Update After Surgery to Remove Her Eye

11/29/18 – UPDATE — Venus had surgery to remove her eye yesterday. Dr. Zalac determined that the surgery was necessary for Venus’ health and comfort. She was also spayed and will be picked up this morning. Her foster mom, Debra B, will be giving us an ‘official update later on. ~ diana

11/28/18 – Prayers for Venus who will be seeing Dr. Zalac this morning. And, although it doesn’t appear so from the photo, her foster reports that her eye is worsening and appearing to sink back more into her head. She has been treated with steroids since she was first found in a cat community and brought into an emergency hospital when we were asked to help. Dr. Zalac will decide whether Venus’ eye can be saved or if she will be healthier and happerier having it removed. Our decisions are always based on what is best for the animal and we take all surgeries very seriously. We will let you know. P.S. Debra B. is fostering Venus and she tells us that Venus is just a sweetheart. If you are interested in her, please contact Debra at: . ~ diana

Pumpkin Spice – Found on the Street with a Severe Broken Leg

11/27/18 – Pumpkin Spice is one of the many examples of how your donations give the abandoned the second chance at life. Here is her story:

“This past Thursday a kitten was found outside near Brownstown, MI and the girl who found + brought her in couldn’t keep her so I volunteered to foster and find her a home! Pumpkin Spice is a SWEET 6ish month old Calico kitten who loves to snuggle, purrs almost constantly, and will sit in my lap for hours at a time. Tuesday I took her to Dearborn Family Pet Physicians (in Dearborn) for a check up, blood work, and age appropriate shots. I remembered that I’d noticed a small, almost undetectable limp in her left hind leg, so as an afterthought I called the vet back in to take a peek. We got X-rays and found out that Pumpkin has a fractured femur neck. The head of her femur is in place, but it’s broken and jagged along the neck. The vet said it’s an old injury, possibly from a car accident or other trauma, that is unable to heal but will most definitely require surgery sooner rather than later. We can even see in the X-ray the loss of muscle mass in her injured leg. She referred me to a surgeon for a femoral head ostectomy (although they wouldn’t have to cut the bone since it’s already completely separated – so not sure if the procedure has a different name at that point). Despite all this she’s still just as playful and sweet as can be. She tested neg for feline leukemia/aids and is otherwise healthy! Can you help? -Wynston”

Although we have had so many serious cases, how could we refuse. Pumpkin Spice has now been seen by one of our favorite veterinarians, Dr. Zalac, and she will have surgery (including spay) this Friday, November 30. Please say a little prayer for this sweetie. And, please donate whatever you can afford. We couldn’t do it without you! Pumpkin Spice will be looking for her forever home once she recovers. contact Wynston at: — diana

Luna – Rescued Before She Was Used for Dog Fighting

11/26/18 – I earlier told the story of Comet. He was one of a litter where the owner planned to use them in the world of dog fighting. The man’s girlfriend learned of his intentions and made some contacts. Eventually, all but two puppies (Comet and Luna) found their way into good homes with the help of the rescuer. Luna and Comet were the last of the litter and our good friend, Amy, paid for Luna to save her. Based on the comments from our previous post on Comet, I know that everyone wants to get this guy locked up because of his alleged intentions. The bottom line is that everyone does the best that they can to save these animals from cruelty and abuse. Very often, all of the issues can’t be addressed, but, please understand, that in most areas in our State, human crime is a higher priority then crimes against animals. Anyone interested in Luna should contact Amy at: Luna will have all of her medical needs taken care of by 4 Paws 1 Heart. ~ diana

11/23/18 – I cannot over emphasize the significant need for cats these past few months. These little beauties were found during a TNR effort — just babies.

If you are interested in any of these cuties, please contact Rachel at:
We continue to be thankful that there are people who will rescue then contact us for medical assistance. Here is Latte, Sox, Bean, and Spot. Without your help, though, we couldn’t say “yes”. ~ diana

Bubba – Rescued Moments Before Being Killed by a Local Shelter – Now in His Forever Home

11/21/18 – Everything happens for a reason. So, one afternoon I was at work walking past a dog that I noticed was in a fetal position and shaking uncontrollably. Not knowing his temperament, I slowly opened his cage door and sat on the ground beside him. He would not make eye contact with me nor could he take a deep breath because he was shivering so rapidly. I talked to him for a while and a few days later learned that he was found running the streets and brought in by animal control with chains on his neck. No one claimed him during his stray hold and his fate was grave based on his look, his fear, and his breed. I reached out to take him into 4 paws 1 heart, but had no idea what I was going to do with him because we are not a rescue.. Fortunately, one of my co-workers was willing to foster him and give him the opportunity to receive love and confidence. He was skin and bones and covered in scabs. Fast forward 2 months. His name is Bubba and he is now in the best home I could possibly ask for. It was love at first sight when this family saw him on social media. He is happy, loved, comfortable, and words cannot describe how much I love this dog and this happy ending. Bubba has a kitty brother that grooms him and stays by his side. They perch on the couch and look out the window together, they hang out and look out the front door, the kitty groom’s him and gives him a little love bites, and the couple said that Bubba is “Everything they wanted in a dog and then some”. Here are some before pics and seriously take a good look at the before collage, and then look at the after pics. These Pics speak a million words. Bubba.
