Carla – Paralyzed and Pulled for A Shelter Gets Ready for Her New Wheels

11/29/17 – When I say that our donors make miracles happen, I don’t use those words lightly. Carla is one such miracle, like her ‘uncle’ Chance, Carla was pulled from a shelter before being euthanized — her back legs were paralyzed. Carla has been working hard with Dr. Kern and her staff, as well as with her mom. She has gone through a lot including surgery for a bladder stone but she hasn’t let that stop her. Carla is starting to stand and now her next step may be a cart We all truly believe that she will be walking some day. Thank you for believing in 4 Paws 1 Heart. ~ diana

“Goood morning Team Chance, Happy #GivingTuesday!!! As you can see mom’s already got me up and in Uncle Chances wheels this morning while I do my morning birdie watching. Did you know Uncle Chance only used his cart for about a month before he was up and running around here without it? It was just a stepping stone for him, and we’re hoping for the same for me! And did you know it was donations from Team Chance that paid for Uncle Chances wheels? Your donations mean so much & go so far to making miracles happen! So on Giving Tuesday, please give what you can to show animals like me that we deserve our Second Chance. 4 Paws 1 Heart does not give up on special needs animals and we know you don’t either And thanks to an anonymous donor…all donations up to $1000.00 will be matched today through Dec 5th!!! Let’s show them how much Team Chance cares about the animals and give what you can, every dollar matters! Have a SuperHero kind of day & watch for updates of my visit with Dr. Kern later today! Love, Carla

Ari – Found on the Street, Ill from Eating Garbage

11/28/17 – Your donations make so many miracles happen.  This is Ari. She was found, at approximately 6 months old, on the streets with a belly filled with garbage. We were contacted and we approved Ari to see one of our vets. Ari tested negative for heart worm, was vaccinated, and eventually spayed. A best friend of the rescuer was a foster failure and her name is now Rucci. She is now happy in her new home and when her dad goes out of town for work, his mom picks Rucci up and brings her to her house where she has a ton of land, another dog, and a pond. She’s a pretty spoiled little girl. This is a photo from the day she was found.ari 11:28:17

Your donations make the difference in many lives.

Betty I and Betty II – One Found Very Ill; the Other Took a Ride in a Car Engine

11/26/17 – These kittens were found by two different rescuers at two different times but both were named Betty. The first Betty was found on the street with a severe upper respiratory infection. With medical dollars from 4 Paws 1 Heart, Betty was treated and look at how great she looks today. The second Betty took a ride in a car engine and was, fortunately, not injured. Again, 4 Paws 1 Heart made sure that Betty II was healthy and would be able to find her forever home. As our Thanksgiving Week comes to an end, I want to again thank our generous donors and our caring rescuers. ~ dianabetty I 11:26:17betty II 11:26:17

Romeo – His Owner Was Found Dead and He Was Not Rescued for Ten Days

11/25/17 – Our handsome Romeo. A true Thanksgiving story. – diana

“Good morning Team, Happy Saturday!!!!
We want to wish our super awesome friend Romeo a very Happy Second Adoptiversary!!!
Sorry we’re a few days late Romeo For those that may not have been following us 2yrs ago. Romeo’s elderly mom passed away and nobody knew about poor Romeo for weeks later when the apt manager called Auntie Di to say there was a cat in the wall of an empty apt. Mom & Auntie Debra went over and it took them 2 days to cut Romeo out of the hole behind the kitchen cupboards. Romeo was emaciated, dehydrated, depressed, and had given up on life. He had to be hospitalized twice and thankfully 4 Paws 1 Heart was there for him every step of the way, without 4p1h he never would have survived his ordeal. After a long convalescence at our house healing his body & his heart he was adopted by Kelly Myers Tanner & her wonderful daughter and is now a very, very happy spoiled boy. Happy Adoptiversary Romeo We love you!!!! Chance”Romeo 11:25:17
