4 Paws 1 Heart is humbled by the outpouring of support from our rescue friends, our families, and our personal friends at last night’s fundraiser at the Blackfinn. We had 120 people show up!! From the reaction of the Blackfinn staff, I think it may have been one the largest turnouts for one of their fundraisers. It was so much fun to meet Cannoli’s mom, Jimmy’s foster dad, rescue friends who I’ve only ‘talked’ to on Facebook, like the ladies of Dog Aide 2012. A huge hug and thank you to all of our other rescue heroes — Loveabull Paws Rescue, Heroes for Homeless Animals, Misfit Angels Rescue, and NBS Animal Rescue. Lisa Taylor and Kim, Warren Animal Control Officers were also there and they told me that Kim will now be working in Eastpointe and that Matthew V. has moved on to Sterling Heights. We will certainly be there for Kim. And, it was great to see Hercules’ mom and dad, Tari and Chris, and we’ll look forward to hanging out with them and Hercules at the People, Pets, and Vets event on November 3 at MCC. I can’t forget Gordon Shell and his wife Kim and how great it was for them to show up and mingle with everyone. We wish him the very best in his efforts to stop animal cruelty and support our fur babies.
I also want to thank my friend Denny and my bff, Tony, for working the door and giving me the opportunity to take care of our guests. If I forgot someone, please forgive me. It was just such a great night and we’re thrilled to be able to continue our mission to treat the abandoned and stray animals. I look forward to seeing many of you at your fundraising events. ~ diana
