7/2/14 – 7/2/14 – Happy Hump Day from our very own mascot, Hercules!!! Hercules and Tari Kern of Pawsitive Steps Rehabilitation & Therapy for Pets are not only sponsors for our July 19 St. Clair Shores 5K Run/Walk Fur Fun event but they are donating this great fun basket for our raffle. I can’t wait to see this guy; it’s been too long. The last time I saw him, Herc was dressed in his Superdog costume. ~ diana
7/1/14 – Here is another case of cruel, evil, heartless people. A 2-year old Maltese was brought into the vet hospital because he was having seizures. The family did not want to deal with him anymore and had no interest in what kind of treatment would be recommended for a dog having seizures. They simply said that they didn’t want him anymore and we could have him. He was signed over to 4p1h. We discovered that he had sores on his knees and the tops of both of his back feet. His entire belly was stained bright yellow, so the sores are believed to be from laying in his own urine — urine scald. We put him on seizure medication and he hasn’t had one since. It is inexpensive to care for a dog having seizures and 4 paws 1 heart decided he did not deserve to die just because he has a condition. I’m hoping that we can find the perfect home for him where he will get the love he deserves. If you can help please, e-mail me at [email protected]
7/1/14 – We were contacted for help when this puppy was found dumped with a seat belt around his neck. He is about 13 weeks old, 17 pounds, male, adorable, sweet, and super friendly. He tested positive for Parvo and we provided the medical treatment for him. Now he is better and he needs a foster, rescue, or permanent home. If you can help, please e-mail me at [email protected] Thank you!!!
7/2/14 – Dog Aide is a phenomenal organization who performs community outreach, assists with rescue, and maintains a pet food pantry. 4 Paws 1 Heart is always happy to help them in their efforts. We will be delivering 101 pounds of dog food for use in their outreach program and sending medical dollars for help with Sheba. Unfortunately, Sheba is still struggling to recover from Parvo and you can keep up with her progress on the Dog Aide fb page. Here is her sad story: ~ diana
“This is Sheeba, she is only 14 months old and another victim of the horrible Parvo virus, it’s on the rise in the City Of Detroit, we are seeing more and more cases of it in several Detroit neighborhoods. Dog Aide friend Margo Schmidt who spends countless hours in the City helping dogs was notified about this poor girl and she rushed out to pick her up, Margo took her to our vet Canton Animal Hospital where they confirmed the diagnosis of Parvo, in addition Sheeba also has a large laceration under her neck, with 15 to 20 old healed smaller lacerations. Parvo treatment was started and her laceration wound was clipped and cleaned.
Sheeba needs your prayers to help her through this deadly virus
