1/22/16 – She was stuffed in a carrier half the size of what she needed. She was put out at the curb during a rain storm like garbage. We have no idea how long this sweetheart was there at the curb or kept in that carrier but a kind woman in a u-haul, on her way to another State, noticed her and brought her to the Emergency. She was kept somewhere, long enough, without food, that she felt the need to eat the items in the carrier. After being rescued, emaciated and wet, she had emergency surgery where much fabric and other articles were found. I have literally never seen an animal so broken and despondent. I couldn’t help but cry and pray that we could some how make her whole again. Her eyes were so vacant and her spine was curved because of too many days in a small carrier. With 4 Paws 1 Heart $, the professional staff at the Animal Urgent and Critical Care Center, Gina’s love, and the care and training provided by our good friend, Carrie, of Lil’ Dogs Resort, I again present to you, Katniss Everdeen — forever loved. Happy Friday morning! This is how your donations make miracles happen ~ diana

1/22/18 – Buddy is Mr. February in the 4 Paws 1 Heart 2018 Calendar. ~ diana
1/20/17 – This handsome guy was found wandering the streets. We were contacted by a rescue friend who asked if we could help the nice couple who found him. Ofcourse, we did and Buddy was taken to the veterinary to be scanned for a microchip, vaccinated and scheduled for neutering. Although very sweet and obviously welcoming human contact and love, no microchip could be found. Buddy has found his forever home with this loving couple known by our rescue friend and we are so happy we could help in their endeavor to give Buddy a second chance at life. ~ diana
1/22/18 – Bob was found on the street with a very serious leg wound which was infected. He was in the hospital for a few days but is now on the road to recovery with a wonderful foster. He has been treated, neutered, tested, and vaccinated with the funding by 4 Paws 1 Heart. If you are interested in this sweet boy, please contact Kelsey at: [email protected] . ~ diana
1/21/18 – Simon was rescued from the side of the road. The person who rescued him decided to throw him back outside because he couldn’t get to the litter box fast enough and urinated on the floor. You see, he couldn’t use his legs!! When we were first called, I thought it was his back legs but the reality is that all 4 of his legs have weak muscles. Simon saw Dr. Kern ofPawsitive Steps Rehabilitation & Therapy for Pets this past week and she advised that it was ok to have Simon neutered and she also said she would like to work with him in hopes of helping him walk again. He is a very loving kitty and I just can’t imagine how he survived being thrown out twice by his rescuer and, only God knows, how he wound up on the side of the road and how long he was out there. Simon is scheduled to see Dr. Kern again and we will continue to report on his progress as we have with all of our long-term cases. I am just thankful that we have such loyal financial supporters and a phenomenal network of people always willing to step up to help the homeless and abused. ~ diana
1/20/18 – Prayers for Jack . It was just last week-end that we posted an update of our little one-eyed guy, Jack, with his ‘brother’, Toby. Shortly after I heard from the family. Jack has a virus call calicivirus, ulcers on his tongue and severe respiratory symptoms. His ‘good’ eye is swollen and he’s been licking his nose — making it raw to the point of profuse bleeding. Jack is one of those few animals that 4 Paws 1 Heart has committed to helping. He holds a special place in my heart because of what he must have gone through before he found Kelly and Dave. Jack has been treated with fluids and antibiotics and, although still ill, is being babied and much loved at home. – Diana . (p.s. Jack is on the left)
1/19/18 – Meet Damian. He was taken to the veterinary clinic to be euthanized because his ears kept getting infected. He is only two years old. The caring veterinarian refused to do that and asked the owners to surrender Damian to the hospital; which they did. The doctor determined that Damian has a food allergy and can only eat kangaroo based food, which is quite expensive. The doctor placed tubes in Damian’s ears with medication and he has not had an ear ache since. Damian is now in foster and if you are interested, please check out the Make A Difference Animal Rescue website. Prayers that this sweet boy finds his forever loving home. ~ diana
