3/5/19 – RIP Sweet Violet. She was rescued and kept inside although she was still feral. We initially paid for her spay and vaccines. And although she tested positive for FIV, Violet was given a safe place to live her life where she could receive love and warmth. We were contacted a few days ago because Violet’s face became terribly swollen and she was severely matted. At her first trip to the doctor, she was given antibiotics and her mats were shaved. Yesterday she was again taken to a vet where she again was treated. But, sadly she died during the night. Our hearts break when we can’t save all of the innocents who come into our lives but we are thankful for those who open their hearts and try. Violet is now running free without pain. ~ diana
3/5/19 – Shadow and Max were rescued during the frigid temperatures. The finder brought them in to keep them from the cold. Max appears to be domesticated and may be an escapee or was abandoned. Shadow appears more feral because he hisses although he just might be afraid. We are happy to help his rescuer get these sweeties neutered, vaccinated, tested, and treated for any fleas/mites. We very much appreciate The Paws Clinic in Taylor who will be taking care of these boys. Anyone interested in these two, should contact Scott at: firstname.lastname@example.org
3/4/19 – Her savior named her Freya. Freya may have been used as a bait dog. She had several bite wounds and scars on her body, very malnourished with a broken tail, injured jaw, and missing teeth. Her rescuer was able to get her away from her abuser and contacted us for help. Freya was seen by Dr. Zalac at Orion Animal Hospital. Dr. Z determined that Freya’s tail will have to heal on its own. Her jaw was not broken but she is missing multiple teeth. Her existing teeth are healthy so the doctor believes she was probably kicked in the face which caused the teeth to fall out. After some healing occurs, Freya will be spayed. Please pray that this girl can forget what she’s been through and enjoy the love of her rescuer. ~ diana

3/4/19 – Here are photos from March 2017 3/4/19 – It’s hard to believe this was 2 years ago. Carla has continued to work hard in rehabilitation therapy. She’s a big girl now. And we are very thankful a village came together to save her. But, this could not happen without the support of our donors. Every visit for rehab is $150 and that doesn’t include all of the other medical issues that can crop up with a special needs pet. And, once we make a commitment, we do everything possible to honor it. If you can, please consider donating so that we can continue to meet the needs of so many homeless and unwanted animals. Thanks, diana

3/1/19 – Lulu Belle showed up as a stray one day. Several attempts were made to find her owner but she was never claimed. The kind, elderly man who found her continued to care for her although he could not afford it. A rescue friend has been providing food but now this senior girl needs some serious medical assistance and we were contacted for help. Lulu Belle had been bumping into walls and getting disoriented when she is outside in the bright snow. We made arrangements for her to be seen by one of our favorite doctors, Dr. Zalac at Orion Animal Hospital.
Lulu Belle was seen the next day and it was determined that she does have a cataract. But, what might have been causing the disorientation and the bumping into walls, is an abscessed tooth which needs to be extracted as well as an overall dental.. Lulu Belle had her vaccines updated was given antibiotics and and she tested negative for heart worm. Dr. Zalac did not believe the cataracts were an issue at this time but if they appear to be a problem in the future, the eye will be treated with medication. Her dental surgery was completed February 27, 2019 and she had to have 9 teeth extracted!! Can you imagine the pain this girl must have been in??? She is still feeling pretty miserable but she is getting lots of love and our rescue friend is making sure she has the proper food to eat. Please say a little prayer that Lulu Belle feels better soon. ~ diana

2/28/19 – Sweet Molly was living in a cat community for 2 years and had been spayed. After all that time, it was determined that Molly would really make a wonderful pet. 4 Paws 1 Heart paid for her medical needs and now she is in a home with a loving family. ~ diana
2/27/19 – Smokey was rescued last year — he was only 4 weeks old. I’ve waited to post him because I wanted to know how he was doing today. When Smokey was rescued he was taken to the emergency vet because he was having seizures. Smokey was found to have low blood sugar and a very low body temperature. He was treated and sent home with instructions to follow up with further tests. That is when we were called.
We made arrangements for Smokey to be seen and tests were donealthough it could not be determined what caused the drop in the blood sugar. The doctor thought that Smokey might not have been able to ‘fight’ his siblings for food and was not able to get enough nutrients. He received more treatment and although he had another seizure the next day, Smokey was responsive and walking. In that I had not heard back from the rescuer for a few months, I followed up with the finder. It took a little while but I finally learned that Smokey is doing good although still very small. Smokey is being loved and well cared for. ~ diana

“CHANCE: Hey Team, my sweet foster sissy Trixie is home from her dental…whew!!! Poor baby girl 😞 Dr. Z did an amazing job, and she really had a job on her hands. Poor Trixies mouth was horrible! She had 8 extractions, she had an abscess, and a whole lot of infection. Dr. Z said she was for sure in pain. We all know how bad teeth pain can be, and unfortunately these innocent sweet babies cant tellus when something hurts. Trixie has oral stitches and will need 2wks to heal from all her dental work today and then she will go back to Dr. Z for a recheck. Thankyou Dr. Zalac and your awesome staff at Orion Animal Hospital, you all are so amazing & care for these babies as if they were your own. You have no idea how much that means ❤especially when they’ve already been through so much. Thankyou 4 Paws 1 Heart and all Trixies fans & donors.”
2/26/19 – Trixie was rescued by Warren Animal Control. She was taken to emergency and found to have 3 breaks in her pelvis. We assisted with the emergency bill and then had her go to Dr. Natalie Zalac. As you will read, our poor girl had an infection, an abscess, and needed 8 teeth extracted. She will probably need more dental work in the future. Can you imagine the pain this 12 year old had to be in while on the streets. My heart breaks thinking about it. As always, we are committed to Trixie and any help in the way of donations you can make will be much appreciated. – diana
