8/21/18 – This poor little guy, was found wandering the streets, very emaciated with sores on his body (probably from fleas). Jim saw our vet yesterday and, thankfully, he was heart worm negative. He was treated for severe fleaI infestation and will be neutered when he’s gained some weight and is healthy. If all goes well, Jim will find his forever home with his rescuer. Remember that donations made this anniversary week will be matched up to $1,500; we’re still working towards the goal.https://4paws1heart.org/donations/

8/20/18 – Celebrating 8 years of making a difference in the lives of over 5,000 animals. If you have been thinking about making a difference, now is the time while donations (up to $1,500) are being matched. It was 2012 when Hercules came into our lives. At only one-month old, his owner smashed and broke his back legs with a bat. Again, through much love and medical assistance, Hercules remains as our Canine Mascot and his mom and dad continue to be our friends. Donations can be made at:https://4paws1heart.org/donations/
8/19/18 – Looking Back at the Many Miracles. Remember Snickers. It was 2013 when a young man found this very sick kitten in an icy puddle in an alley in Hamtramck, MI. A village came together to get him to the emergency hospital where Gina worked. We thought he’d lose an eye but with lots of love and medical attention, both he and his eye survived. Up to $1,500 in donations will be matched during our Anniversary Week. You too can make a difference. Donations can be made at:https://4paws1heart.org/donations/
8/18/18 – Poor Nala was abandoned twice by her owners but luckily her first owners lives near our good friend, Denise, who is the mom of Chance and Team. Denise thought for sure the second adopters would provide her a forever home but that was not to be. Fortunately for Nala, Denise continued to be her Guardian Angel. ~ diana
“Happy Life Nala!!!!
Nala’s adoption went amazing today and shes on her way to paradise as we type this! She took to her new mom Shirley right away! Shirley is extremely knowledgeable about dogs with Nalas temperament and Border Collies in general. Shes going to have 40acres of land, trails, river & lake and be super loved & cherished. Her brand new bed was in the back of the SUV for her ride home with her mom and their neighbor and when the time came to leave, Nala jumped right in with the biggest smile on her face like she just knew she was going home at last. Nalas fur siblings are anxiously waiting to greet her! Huge thanks to 4 Paws 1 Heart, Tom & Marilyn Bedell Pontack and Shirley’s niece Karen for helping to make this tricky adoption happen. We love you Nala, enjoy the best years of your life at your amazing new home!- Denise”
8/18/18 – HAPPY 8TH ANNIVERSARY TO 4 PAWS 1 HEART. To celebrate this momentous occasion, one of our Board members has offered to match up to $1,500 in donations made over the next week. As a reminder to all of our supporters, we will take a look back at some of our many miracles. This is Mickey (now Neo). It was January, 2017 when I was called about a sweet dog found licking frozen water in the street. He had a cherry eye and he turned out to be heart worm positive. We thank God for his rescuer and and for the donations that made our help possible. Here he is then and now since he’s been adopted by a loving family who adores him. Donations can be made at: https://4paws1heart.org/donations/
August 18, 2018 4 Paws 1 Heart celebrates its 8th Anniversary –over 5,000 animals and $665,888 in paid medical bills. And it couldn’t have happened without our rescue friends and our supporters. Starting tomorrow we have a $1,500 match starting as well as a trip down memory lane. Please be sure to check out our posting and share it — and to my family and friends, who have supported me over the past 8 years, — a sincere thank you. Also, a huge thank you to our Board of Directors, my husband Tony, and my dad who chose to honor my mom by having contributions made in her memory last July, 2017 when she passed away. We raised over $7,000 at that time and it truly made the difference in so many lives. I also want to recognize Kroger, Colleen’s Irish Pub, Harbor Lanes, Painting with a Twist,Jefferson Yacht Club, and 100 Women Who Care – Grosse Pointe as great community partners. ~ diana
8/17/18 – Meet Raven. She had been spotted for about three days at a sailboat-junkyard, when Rebel Dogs Detroit was called. She has flea bitten ears and when taken to the vet, she was found to be heart worm positive. 4 Paws 1 Heart will be taking care of her heart worm treatment. Please say a prayer that Raven will recover and find a loving and forever home. Also, please consider donating so that we can continue to be there for these animals who have no one else.

8/16/18 – One of our rescue friends received a call about a kitten who was found under a car who had been crying though out the night. Our friend went to her aid and saw that the little baby was lethargic and had something wrong with her paw; she was immediately taken to the vet where it was found that Stella had a slight upper respiratory infection and conjunctivitis. She was also treated for the swollen paw.
She is now doing well and we assisted in paying for Stella to be spayed and vaccinated. It does take a Village. ~ diana
8/15/18 – We continue to work with our rescue friends to reduce the population of unwanted kittens. Meet Jessie, Woody, and Buzz. They were rescued by our friend, Cristen, who also fosters for Tigerlily Cat Rescue. All three kitties were neutered/spayed/vaccinated, and tested complements of 4 Paws 1 Heart and our generous donors. ~ diana
