9/13/16 – We were contacted by a rescue friend about 6 kittens who needed our help. Unfortunately, one of their siblings had to be taken to an emergency hospital where she had to be humanely euthanized. All of them were horribly flea infested and obviously neglected. The positive news is that the rest of the family is doing well and are on their way to get their vaccinations, deworming, and spaying/neutering. This is Lily, Buster (talking), Freckles, Sampson, and Sasha (Tabby). All will be available for adoption through our friends at A Rejoyceful Animal Rescue. ~ diana
9/12/16 – Louie was rescued by Heavenly Paws of MI from an overcrowded, high-kill shelter. He had a broken leg, which appeared to have been set; however, Wilson’s medical testing disclosed that the leg was not set properly. He was also suffering from a life threatening infection in his leg. These conditions required that he endure a leg amputation to save his life. As was hoped, Louie recovered well from his surgery, and is now living a very happy and healthy life. 4 Paws 1 Heart was very happy to be able to assist our friends at Heavenly Paws with Louie’s medical needs. ~ diana
9/11/16 – RIP Baby Brownie – It was just a week ago that sweet Mocha Latte had two babies. Mocha’s rescuer was with her the entire time; everyone seemed to be fine. Unfortunately, this weekend, Brownie (the calico baby) stopped eating and was not as vocal as usual. Brandy, the rescuer (mom and grandma), contacted us but before we could make arrangements, a friend who is a veterinarian took over the baby’s care. This morning I learned that Brownie passed away. Our hearts are heavy for Brandy and her family as well as for Mocha and her other baby. ~ diana
9/11/16 – On this day we want to remember all of the many lives lost during the worst terrorist attack on United States soil. We give thanks to the many men, women, and canines who tirelessly worked through the rubble to find survivors and who worked around the clock in hospitals to care for the survivors. We will never forget! ~ diana
I am delighted to report that Cookie found her forever home with a very lovely couple. They have tons of time to spoil her, a 2-acre property on the lake, and a condo in Florida where she will travel with them. Cookie was dumped in a school parking lot several months ago. She had back and neck trauma and she was emaciated. I’ve fostered her since and she is a ball of love. In 3 weeks her new mom and dad will make it official. Prayers do work! Gina
9/10/16 – Kimba is a sweet kitten who was rescued in a barn. She will be spayed on September 29 and should be close to looking for her forever home. Please contact Roberta ([email protected]) if you are interested in this little beauty.
9/9/16 – Isabella Skye was rescued at just 3 weeks old. The rescuer is training her to be a service dog and needed help getting Isabella the rest of her vaccinations, which we were happy to do. We wish sweet Isabella Skye the very best. ~ diana

9/7/16 – It was August 1 when we were first contacted about this sweet girl who found her way to the porch of a very caring family 3 weeks prior. The family had been providing food and water when one day, Mocha Latte walked through the door when the dog was let out. Everyone fell in love with her and decided that they would provide her a forever home. 4 Paws 1 Heart agreed to pay for her spay and vaccinations only to find out she was pregnant. Everything was going well until an abscess was found on Mocha’s chin along with some other cuts around her neck. Once again, we came through and had Mocha seen by the doctor. Well, the other day, I received this e-mail from Mocha Latte’s mom:
“Mocha did great through her labor and delivery. Her labor started at 5 p.m. and her last baby was born at 8:08 p.m. Mama stayed with her babies all night until she got up to eat at 7 am the next morning. Before her first kitten was born she did push out a sac that had just a blob and placenta in it. I’ve never seen that with a cat before during delivery. I am not sure if it was an undeveloped kitten that never even formed or what but before I could figure it out she ate it. (I wanted to throw up) She wouldn’t let me leave her side. Every time I tried to get up she would stop pushing and try to follow me so I had to strap in for the ride. She did beautifully. Her motherly instincts kicked in from the moment she went into labor. My Fur-daughter is a trooper, and my 2 new grand-fur-babies are strong criers, but healthy so far and doing good. I will keep you updated as things move along. Thank you again for helping us with this beautiful little girl. She is the 3rd child I have always wanted, but unfortunately my body couldn’t give me. I am a happy worried new mommie again, and now grandmommie. – Brandy””
9/6/16 – This is Morrisy. Again we were contacted by our friend who does outreach near the City of Detroit. This sweet boy is taken care of by a group of senior citizens who live in an apartment complex. They love Morrisy and one day saw that he was just laying around and not moving. 4 Paws 1 Heart paid for Morrisy to be seen by a vet and tested. No injuries or illnesses could be found and Morrisy was neutered and vaccinated. He is back with his senior citizens who will continue to watch over him but they are concerned someone is trying to hurt him. I’ve asked our friend if Morrisy could possibly be taken in and become an ‘apartment mascot’. I’m not sure how feral he is. It’s such a tough world for the many cats and dogs who are on the streets and not in comfy, loving homes like are babies.
