6/3/24 – Regarding a stray dog who was rescued with many issues, which included fleas, mange, an ear infection, heart worm, and neuter. 4 Paws 1 Heart was there for Sharif (Protector) throughout his medical needs. We love these happy beginnings!! – diana

“Hello Diana!

I just wanted to give you an update on Sharif. Your organization assisted him when he was a stray in October 2021. I ended up keeping him. The picture of him in the tire was when I brought him in and contacted you all. He’s absolutely spoiled. I just wanted to say thank you for helping him. He likes sitting on the porch and people watch. Playing with his Kong toys and walks. He’s not very fond of baths as you can see his face in when he’s in his robe – Ashaki” P.O.

6/3/24 – On January 19, 2024 I posted the story of Smudge (search our website for the post). In short, Smudge was rescued from under a mobile home in a park overwhelmed with cats left behind. Smudge’s rescuer, Melissa, had earlier rescued others, some of whom we helped with medical. Smudge was about 8 weeks old when rescued and was first taken in quickly to get proper vaccinations and an exam. She was later scheduled to have everything else completed at Patterson Veterinary Hospital. But, between the time of her rescue and spay appointment, Smudge got very sick with an upper respiratory infection and suffered high fevers. After a few vet visits and medication, Smudge was finally ready for her spay and updated vaccinations. Here is an update from Smudge’s rescuer:

“Smudge had her spay surgery. Patterson Veterinary did such a great job I can’t even tell she had surgery at all (besides the shaved tummy lol). I have a 15 year old senior cat I rescued under a mobile home years ago, and a 4 year old cat I rescued from a garage with 6 others. Smudge has grown on our 4 year old. Giving him company and a friend. I couldn’t bare to take Smudge from him, sooo she has a permanent and loving home with us, we decided to keep her. I want to thank 4paws 1 heart for everything they’ve done and continue to do to help these babies.-Melissa”

The first photos were taken while Smudge was being treated and the last are from this past Friday. – diana


6/2/24 – Thankful that we can play a role in the rescue and the placement of animals who have been abused and abandoned. Your donation dollars change lives! – Diana

Location: Monroe, MI (but I’ll travel for a good prospective home and meet and greet).

Little Miss Aurora, aka Rory, has been with us for 6 days now. She went from an emaciated, neglected little girl who smelled like the rancid basement floor she went to the bathroom on, AND had to eat food from, to the cute little girl you see in these pictures.

She’s gained weight, gotten all of her shots and meds to make her feel better (thanks to 4 Paws, 1 Heart), and she got a puppy day at the spa yesterday and looks and smells so clean now!

She is so full of love and happiness and can’t stop giving kisses to Steve and I, almost in appreciation for getting her out of the hellhole she was in before coming to us. She did lose a big chunk out of her right ear, and I don’t even want to imagine how it happened.

She’s 6 months old, will be spayed soon, and will be ready for adoption! She is great with other dogs, cats, and kids. She’s almost completely potty trained and is crate trained at night and during the day when I leave for work, walks on a leash, (but has to hold a part of it in mouth like she’s walking herself ), and even knows how to sit and take treats nicely.

If I had to guess, I don’t think she’ll be much bigger than maybe 35 or 40 pounds. Please share her face with someone who may be looking for any awesome puppy to add to their family! P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080


5/31/24 – It was in late March when we were contacted about a stray kitten who was rescued and being kept in the rescuer’s bathtub while she could find help in getting the kitten tested, vaccinated, and spayed. Although, the rescuer had just moved to the Ann Arbor, MI area, she was happy to take the kitty, Tilly, to one of our veterinary clinics. Tilly was tested, vaccinated, and spayed at Five Mile Animal Hospital where it just so happened the rescuer, Jessica, interned when she was in high school. – diana P.O.

5/31/24 – Here is his story:

“Hello Diana! I was referred to your organization by someone in my neighborhood after recently acquiring a stray, he’s a beautiful young male cat that randomly appeared in my neighborhood and ended up following me for over a mile on a walk, not really normal outside cat behavior, he seemed pretty desperate for human contact. I feel like he might’ve been dumped in my Ferndale neighborhood. I’ve made online posts to find his owners, but no results so far.

I plan on taking him to a vet Monday so see if he’s microchipped, but given the fact he’s not neutered, I highly doubt he’s chipped.

I know a lot of shelters are overwhelmed right now with kitten season, but I was hoping maybe I could get him in somewhere to at least be neutered. Any advice or resources welcomed.

Thank you for your time.-Mckenzie”

Thankfully, Sneakies is able to see one of our partner vets, Dr. Mina at Five Mile Animal Hospital and Sneakies will be on his way for a great life. – diana P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080


5/28/24 – It was in mid February when we were contacted about a sweet cat who turned up on the finder’s porch. His paws were bleeding and the finder asked for our help. He was taken to our partner vet, Dr. Mina Five Mile Animal Hospital, where his wounds were sutured. He was also neutered, vaccinated, and tested. The finder was to try and find Smokey a furever home. – diana P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080


5/28/24 – It was around Easter of this year when we were contacted about poor little Punkie. He is about 10 years old and is a member of a community being taken care of by Edna. Edna has been working for years to try and reduce the number of stray cats in her neighborhood. Although on limited funds, Edna has been paying out of her own pocket to tnr and feed the overwhelming number of cats abandoned and born on the street. Punkie had been in Edna’s community for several years; born on the street. He already had several teeth removed but he once again needed more extracted and that is why Edna needed our help. Punkie was taken to our good friends All About Animals in Flint where all except 3 teeth were extracted. The surgery went well and Punkie was kept inside while on medication. Edna was going to try and find him a home because he is very docile and gets along with all of the cats. He is pretty handsome! – diana P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080


5/27/24 – In addition to remembering and honoring the military men and women who died for our freedom, we also want to remember and honor America’s War Dogs who also gave their lives. This War Dog Memorial is in South Lyon, MI. – diana P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080
