This is Sargent

9/29/13 – This is Sargent. He was brought into emergency last night. Sargent is a beautiful soft male all grey stray cat, between 1 and 1/2 and 2 years old, who was exposed to over-the-counter flea medication which caused him to have seizures and convulsions. He had to be sedated in order to stop the seizures. The only treatment is supportive care by giving him IV fluids around the clock and monitoring him closely. Please keep him in your prayers and If he pulls through this, we will need a rescue, foster or permanent home as soon as possible. Please contact Gina at [email protected]
10/1/13 – Updated pic of Sargent from last night.. He was curled in a little ball hugging my arm as I scratched his belly. He slightly opened his eyes and gave me a helpless little stare.. He was brought into emergency because he was exposed to dangerous flea medication. I wish that shit would be taken off the market! Frontline is in my opinion the safest.. His little body is so weak and tired from all the muscle convulsions and seizures that he still can not stand. Today is day 4 of hospitalization. Please SHARE:: Do not use Over- the-counter flea meds without checking with your vet first!!!! gina
10/2/13 – Here he is after days of being lifeless. Sergeant was a stray exposed to over the counter flea meds. He is finally safe to go now that we have hospitalized him at the Animal Urgent Care. Saturday night he was brought in seizing and convulsing, last night he was being held by a potential mom. ~ gina
10/4/13Look who is doing GREAT and went to his new home tonight! Sargent became stronger day by day with hospitalization, and here he is tongiht happy as ever! Thank you Jamie for giving him a loving home:) Thank you to the staff at Animal Urgent Care and Harper Woods Veterinary Hospital, for taking care of this guy around the clock!!! ~ Gina

Meet Oreo

9/29/13 – Meet Oreo. He is about 2 – 3 years old and was seen being hit by a car two nights before. When Oreo arrived in the Emergency, he was in a fetal position, curled up because he could not stand or walk. Oreo also had maggot eggs on both sides of his face, and literally, was skin and bones. As of tonight, he is eating like a champ and is doing much better. Medical treatment continues at the Emergency; he will need a forever home, foster or rescue when he recovers. Contact Gina at [email protected]

10/2/13 – Here is Oreo slowly mending after being hit by a car several nights ago. I truly think he would have died in the street from shock if the nice caring people who saw him just left him there. A friend of 4P1H will be fostering Oreo very soon until a rescue is available or we can find him a home. We estimate Oreo to b about 4 yr old, he is fixed, and friendly with other cats. He doesn’t mind small dogs either. If anyone is interested in adopting this sweetheart or if there is a rescue who can help place him, please contact me at [email protected]

A huge thank you to the participants of the Macomb County Employee Casual Day Program

9/24/13 – A huge thank you to the participants of the Macomb County Employee Casual Day Program for making 4 Paws 1 Heart the recipients of their donations during the month of August. Those of you who know me know that my two passions (besides my family) are Macomb County and making a difference for abandoned animals. I’ve not only lived in the County for the past 41 years but during my career worked for many years with a variety of Macomb County departments. I’ve always felt that Macomb County had some of the most dedicated and efficient employees amongst all of the counties I worked with. Many animals will be helped because of their generosity. ~ diana

Phoenix was Rescued

9/24/13 – 4 Paws 1 Heart is so grateful to our caring rescue friends who help us in placing animals we have helped with medical bills. One of these animals is Phoenix. Phoenix was rescued from a home who kept ‘rescuing’ cats although the person had very limited income and room. Of the kittens taken from the ‘rescuer’, a number of them came down with Panleuk. Not everyone made it, but those who did survive are doing well and some have been adopted. Although we helped, Tigerlily spent many dollars in helping these babies through this deadly illness which is likened to the Parvo virus with puppies. This is Phoenix who continues to require medical assistance; he is just not thriving as we would help. Thank You to Tigerlily for always being there for our kitties and us. I’m thankful that we are able to again send a few dollars to your vet to help with Phoenix’s high medical bills. Please pray for Phoenix and make sure you check out their fb page. ~ diana
