4/22/14 – Our followers know that our mission is not just about the abandoned and abused who come into the Emergency or about assisting formal rescue groups with medical bills. We are very much about helping the individual rescuer who finds an animal in trouble and jumps into action. Amanda is one such person. She contacted us after rescuing this sweet dog who was advertised on Craig’s list FOR FREE. This poor guy had been kenneled most of his life and now that the family was moving they were ready to abandon him. When Amanda rescued him he was very emaciated, had a split toe nail causing him to limp, and diarrhea. Amanda nursed him through his health issues but could not afford treating his nail. 4P1H was happy to get this boy started on his new life. His nail has been treated and he’s been neutered thanks to the great relationship we have with Patterson Veterinary. Thank you, Amanda, for rescuing this sweet boy.-

4/23/14 Mr. Honeybell Update

4/23/14 – Happy Update: Many of you may remember Mr. Honeybell. Our 4P1H friend, Dave, contacted us for help. He and his wife had been sheltering and feeding Mr. Honeybell (outside) after he was abandoned by his owners. With such a severe winter, Dave became very concerned for Mr. Honeybell’s well being and then he saw that the cat was limping. On January 23, 2014 with the help of our good friends from Paws For The Cause Feral Cat Rescue, Mr. Honeybell was taken to the vet. 4P1H paid for his medical treatment and neutering and we’re happy to say that Mr. Honeybell is very healthy, not limping, and slowly falling in love with his new family. Here is Dave”s latest update ~ diana:

“Just wanted to let you know that we have become great friends. He does something I have never seen. He grabs my arm with his front paws, roles on his back and pushes on it repeatedly with his hind paws… No claws… Then he gives me a nibble on the hand and kisses.” ~ Dave


Tiz the season for abandoned kittens! I’m currently filling in and bottle-feeding these babies for “A Rejoyceful Animal Rescue”. They will be going back the the rescue on Sunday. They will eventually need homes, and If your interested in adoption please contact Michelle @ https://www.facebook.com/rejoycefulrescue Please Note: It will be weeks before they are considered ready. They are only about 1-2 weeks old and have a ways to go before they are out of the woods! Gina

6/11/14 UPDATE:  Homes were found for all kittens.


URGENT PLEASE SHARE This female was found this afternoon on Telegraph road hit by a car. She has a dislocated femur on the right side and a broken head of her femur on the left side of her pelvis. She can not walk. 4 paws 1 heart is taking care of her medical needs and supportive care, but we would like to find her owners asap. She had no chip, no collar, but she does have a line tattoo on her belly indicating she was fixed. We estimate her to be about 7-9 years old. If anyone has any information about her owners please email me at (owner must show proof of ownership) [email protected]

6/11/14 UPDATE:  This poor baby’s injuries were too great.  She was humanely euthanized before any owners could be found. ~ diana


4/28/14 – Meet Cookie! She was rescued in a Detroit abandoned home by a friend of 4 Paws 1 Heart. Today we paid for her to be examined, tested, vaccinated, and spayed. Per her rescuer, Cookie is about one year old and is sweet, affectionate, well-behaved, and very smart. If anyone is interested in this sweetie, please contact Maria at [email protected] If you would like Maria’s phone number, private message me on this page. ~ diana
UPDATE 6/11/14  Cookie is in her forever home.


4/2/14 HAPPY UPDATES – Remember our little Dewey. Back in October, 2013 he was found under a van — terrified and starving. He had a small laceration and later developed a cough which delayed his recovery while Gina fostered him. Well, just like most of the babies 4 Paws 1 Heart helps, Dewey is living the life of a King. Thank You, Cory Lynn, for keeping in touch and taking such good care of our little guy. ~ diana

“I just wanted to give your organization another heart felt thank you for the work you do. This is Dewey. He absolutely loves his first spring. Yesterday he spent a whole day going from screen door to open window, admiring wild life. Today he is cuddly and exhausted from all the excitement. He is here because of you and we are so very grateful.” ~ Cory L


6/11/14 – RIP Little Paperclip – Unfortunately the little tiny sparrow passed away yesterday morning. I think he got cold because my heating pad stopped working during the night:( The Robin is doing wonderful and is mostly in the position to eat all day long… ~ Gina
