Our mission is to reduce the number of homeless cats & dogs by paying for needed medical treatment and assisting with the permanent placement of these animals through our partnerships with local rescue groups.
MOM: Well, we have a visitor. You may recognize Grisette! She is the kitty you help with special food, recently diagnosed with a very aggressive cancer and she is now a hospice kitty. Grisettes foster mom loves Grisette sooo much but is currently unable to care for her, we are praying that changes very soon. Grisettes medical will continue to be paid for by 4 Paws 1 Heart. Meanwhile, we will be caring for Grisette and giving her all the love and care she needs until she can be reunited with her mom. Please keep them both in your prayers.
Sweet tiny terrified little Kluka was trapped after her rescuer saw she was very injured and in need of help. Part of her tail was cut off and infection had set in. Yesterday we removed 3 vertebrae from her tail leaving her with a tiny nub and we spayed her. We estimate her age to be around 8 months. She will eventually need a home. Thank you Moore Veterinary Hospital for getting her in right away for the care she needed. If you would like to help Kaluka our link is
2/23/24 – Miggy was rescued from a corner where his finder had been seeing him for quite some time. He is very sweet but was very neglected although at one time he had been TNR’d. He was taken to one of our partner vets where he was treated for an infection. Unfortunately, his mouth is still infected and his gums are very inflamed. We have authorized his continued treatment and continue to hope that his finder, Bonita, can find him a permanent, loving home. – diana
2/22/24 – Harmony was dropped off in the middle of the road and it appeared to be missing her upper lip. Voices for Community Cats contacted us to see if we could help and if we could, they would take her in to their rescue. Harmony was seen at Orion Animal Hospital. Harmony was found to have an ulcerated paw pad, patchy alopecia, a wound on her mouth , and severe rodent ulcers.
According to Catster: “Rodent ulcer is an allergic reaction with any number of causes that results in unsightly, often painful lesions around a cat’s lips, chin, inside the mouth, and in some cases, other parts of the body. It’s most common in younger cats aged two and under, and female cats. If left untreated, this can result in permanent disfigurement.” Harmony did have a tipped ear. She is fiv/felv negative. Harmony did receive a steroid injection and will be seen again within the next two weeks. – diana
2/22/24 – Smokey is one of approximately 16 stray cats being cared for by a kind woman on the west side of Detroit. Smokey has been on and off ill for the past month. He’s had bleeding paws and weight loss but then appeared to get well with antibiotics. But recently the bleeding started again and Smokey took up residence in a shelter kept on the finder’s porch. Roxanne, Smokey’s finder, took him to a vet where he was again treated with antibiotics but she couldn’t afford any additional treatment. She then contacted us. Smokey was seen yesterday by Dr. Mina, Five Mile Animal Hospital. Dr. Mina reported that both of Smokey’s paws were torn open and were severely lacerated and infected. Smokey was sedated and his paws were cleaned and sutured. Roxanne is hoping to find a home for Smokey. If you can help, please contact her at: [email protected] – diana
2/21/24 – He was found a few nights ago, crying at the door wall of his rescuer. He’s very friendly but may have an eyesight issue. He was also very matted although had spots of lost hair. He will be seen at one of our partner veterinary clinics and his rescuer will find him a good home. – diana
2/20/24 – Yesterday I got an e mail from a very kind man who had come across a dog lying, balled up, in a vacant lot. The man, Anthony, saw that Rocky’s front paw was severely swollen with multiple cuts on it. Fortunately, Rocky was able to get into one of our great partner veterinary clinics today where it was found that Rocky had been shot and a bullet was embedded in his paw thus causing a severe infection. Unfortunately, Rocky was also found positive for heart worm. This morning Anthony contacted me with the report, very upset because already he felt an emotional connection to this poor, abused dog. Once I advised Anthony that we would take care of Rocky’s surgery and heart worm treatment, he was elated with the news. Please remember Rocky in your prayers as well as Anthony and the many good samaritans like him who never turn their backs. Rocky is now on antibiotics and pain meds while we wait for the next steps. Anthony will keep us informed. – diana
2/19/24 – Linx is a 3-4 years old community cat who will never live outside again. He was recently trapped with a severely infected eye which will need removal. He will be seen at West Flint Hospital this week for the surgery. Once recovered, he will be up for adoption by Sherri P. who has taken on the responsibility.
I don’t know what these poor animals would do without the kind people who see and injured/sick animal and don’t turn their backs. And, I don’t know what these animals would do without your support which makes our work possible. – diana
2/19/24 – Angel is a community cat being cared for by a woman who lives in the mobile home park. As a result of a severe UTI, Angel developed a kidney stone. We were contacted by an organization, SNiP, whose mission is to spay/neuter to see if we could help. Angel had her surgery this past Friday and we were able to help with the medical bill. – diana
These three 12 week old babies and the mom were going to be tossed outside until someone stepped up. The rescuer took them into her home when they were only a few days old. She covered the costs of spay/neutering for all of them. The black kitten became sick with bloodclots in his stool and for fear of his survival we offered to help. That’s when I found out the woman needed assistance with kitten food. A call was put out on my page and the babies are fully stocked up and already gaining weight. They all need homes or a rescue. Please contact her if you can help. [email protected] Jordan. We will be covering vaccines for all of them. Gina
