4/3/18 – Cuz and Angel had been ‘chained’ dogs. Our friend Megan of Friends of Scooby, contacted us to ask if we could pay for vetting (spay/neuter, vaccines, heart worm test) both dogs, one of whom — Angel — seemed to have an ear issue. We were happy to help but we were sad to learn that Cuz has heart worm and Angel has an ear infection. Angel and Cuz have both been spayed/neutered. Angel is being treated for the ear infection and Cuz has started his 30-day pre-heart worm treatment. We are praying that Cuz’s heart worm is not severe but we will follow through to his recovery. ~ diana
4/2/18 – OOPS – GIina steered me wrong. Ellie’s surgery is actually tomorrow, 4/3/18.
4/2/18 – Please say a prayer for Ellie. We rescued her before she was euthanized. Her leg had multiple fractures requiring that it be amputated. She is having her surgery today and although she is in a great foster home, she does not a forever home or a rescue group to make her their own to find a forever home. We have had many serious cases in March — three cases where the back legs became paralyzed after being rescued with deep wounds on the back, two cases of heart worm, one case of parvo virus, and a case where all of the teeth needed to be extracted AND, these are just the expensive cases. Every animal we assist with basic vetting costs $100 to $200 and there have been many of those.
If you can donate, please use the ‘donate’ link on the left side of this page or send a check by mail to P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI 48080. These animals would not have a second chance at life without you. ~ diana
4/3/18 – Our Feline Mascot and Superhero, Chance, updated us on Ruby and Bunny’s visit:
“Helloooo Team! So Ruby & Bunny are home, fed and sweetly sleeping. Both girls hearts & lungs sound good. They are both hydrated, neither appears to have any fluid in their tummys or around their lungs. Neither of the girls have any signs of upper respiratory infection. Ruby had a bit of diarrhea this morning, but has since cleared up. Bunny has not pood yet today, but we’re not worried about that for another day or so. Bunny is in better body condition and is stronger then Ruby. They are too tiny for bloodwork or a fecal. Those are the things we do know. Dr. Wilson told mom not to change anything shes doing, she doing everything right. That made mom feel better, but what didn’t make mom feel better is that she had to take the babies out of our bedroom. Since we don’t know for sure what the other babies died from and we don’t know for sure that Ruby & Bunny don’t have anything, we cant take any chances with the Gang. It hurts moms heart to have them in the next room, and not in our room where she can hear every sound. Moms thinking she may need a baby monitor. Anyway, Dr. Wilson told mom everything to watch for and if we need her to just call her, she thinks our girls may need a little extra help. We just have to wait, watch & pray 🙏Thankyou to 4 Paws 1 Heart for being there for our baby girls today. If you would like to donate to help with Ruby & Bunnys vet needs please go to4paws1heart.org/donations/
Oops! 2 more things, 1. The umbilical cords fell off today! 2. Per Dr. Wilson the girls will not be going back to mama even if she is caught because we don’t know if she has something that could be passed through her milk or saliva that may have been passed to our sweet babies that died.
