Dapper and Handsome Had A Strain of K9 Flu

7/29/13 Our friends from Mutts of Motown had a harrowing two weeks worried about these beauties who became deathly ill. They both have blue eyes and are deaf which is usually an indication that they have a genetic deficiency and may have a low immune system. After nearly two weeks of near death symptoms and treatment, it was determined that Dapper and Handsome had contracted a strain of K9 influenza. They are now on the road to recovery and 4 Paws 1 Heart is happy we could play a role in helping these beauties get better. We will never forget our friends who helped us with Charlie! ~ diana

Cats and Kittens Stuffed in a Carrier, Left to Die in a Motel Room

7/29/13: I received a call from Matt, one of our favorite animal control officers in Sterling Heights. He found 11 kittens and two nursing moms stuffed in a small carrier left at a motel in his City. He was calling for help because he had no where else to go with them. As many of you know, every rescue is very full and they all need fosters very badly. Fortunately, our good friends at Tigerlily Cat Rescue once again came through. Matt’s supportive boss allowed Matt to meet with the foster on July 30 and deliver all of the cats and kittens who will now have a second chance. Check out Tigerlily if you are interested. ~ diana

Meet Pip and Squeak

7/29/13  Meet Pip and Squeak who were rescued by our friends at Dog Aide – 2012 when they received an urgent call from a family who’s dog was killing all of her newborn puppies. They rushed right over and found that Pip had a very large abscess on her face and Squeak had a few open sores on her belly and legs. They were taken directly to the vet. They both had horrible infections but are now on the fast track to being healthy and no longer on the brink of death.
4 Paws 1 Heart is very happy to have been able to send some medical dollars to help in the recovery of these very special babies. Please check out their progress on the Dog Aide – 2012 facebook page. ~ diana
