2/3/15 – ANOTHER EMERGENCY – A call was just received about a dog stuck inside fencing and still alive. It’s the Downtown area. The lady said the dog could have been there for days. We contacted Misfit Angels Rescue and they immediately offered to rescue and transport the dog to us. We are willing to provide funding for medical for either of these cases. I will update once I know more. Gina
2/3/15 – Update on Emergency #2 tonight. This old man was found out in the cold in Detroit. The caller thought he was stuck in a fence, but he was burrowed against a tree surrounded by snow. He was transported to the ER Hospital by Misfit Angels Rescue. Thank you so much for immediately taking action, this guy wouldn’t have made it without you! We feel he got lost from his home, and we hope to find his family. Our main concern is the foreign body showing up in his stomach on x ray. We have him stabilized on fluids and antibiotics. He’s probably 10+, male, not neutered
2/3/15 – Izzy update – Today he was eating some dry food on his own:) Still on IV and very congested, but he is making baby steps of improvement. That’s what it’s all about for 4paws1heart. Tonight Izzy was head pressing into my hands for some love. I was happy to see he is definitely in better spirits.. Thank you all for the positive prayers! I know you have helped him .♡
2/2/15 – Excellent News Tonight. Thaya has been reunited with her owners!!
Thaya was found outside early November, some kind people were feeding her. The days were getting colder. 4 Paws 1 Heart was contacted and paid for her medical expenses. Thaya then went to a foster home. What we have learned is that it is not common practice for a veterinarian to check for a microchip. Today she needed to see another veterinarian, this vet did mention a microchip. The foster contacted the microchip company and within hours Thaya (Pixie) was reunited with the family she loved. 4 Paws1 Heart also educated the owners that indoor cats are safer. We are thrilled that Pixie is back home!! ~ Cynthia
2/1/5 IZZY UPDATE.. I don’t have a photo to post, but Izzy is taking a turn for the better tonight. His congestion is draining better, and we are able to syringe feed now. We still have him on IV antibiotics and fluids along with nebulizing treatments. Your prayers seem to be helping, so keep paws crossed. Huge thanks to the saviors this weekend at the “Animal Urgent and critical care center” ER! ♡♡♡♡ Thank you, Gina

1/31/15 – Izzy is still very sick.. The biggest problem right now is there are several ulcers inside of his mouth and on his tongue making it nearly impossible to swallow food. We may need to have a feeding tube placed. The animal urgent care staff is working hard to keep his drainage clean and medicate him throughout the day and night. Paws Crossed! ♡ gina
