Clara – Once Adopted, Now Returned

clara 1:29:191/29/19 – Clara was pulled from a high-kill shelter just before she was euthanized. She was adopted and the family seemed to love her; they sent photos of Clara sleeping next to their son. But now she has been returned to the rescuer because they are moving into a home where Clara is not allowed. Please contact Lori at: [email protected] Here is what her rescuer has to say about Clara. ~ diana

“If you’re looking for a chill, super sweet companion who is happy to curl up and be close to you, Clara is your girl. She is friendly with people, cats, and dogs and has lived with young children. Clara will seek attention and loves to give kisses, but is also content to sit quietly and watch out the window. Clara came in already front paw declawed. She is vetted, microchipped, and just waiting to meet you. Her beautiful green eyes are sure to capture your attention and her sweet personality is sure to steal your heart”.


Alley – Blind and Feline Leukemia Positive – Has a Photo Shoot

1/27/18 – A huge thank you to Emily for taking in sweet Emily. – Diana

alley 2:8:19“1/26/19 – Remember our sweet Alley who is feline leukemia positive and needed her eyes removed? She’s all healed up and her fur has mostly grown back in. So, of course this calls for some studio time!

Thank you to all who donated for our gorgeous girl. She is MUCH happier and feeling better without the pain from her eyes. She’s making her way around the house without any trouble, and she even plays now. An extra special thank you goes to Diana Rascano and 4 Paws 1 Heart for covering Alley’s surgery. We are so grateful for all of the help. Alley has a wonderful life now because of the amazing people in our lives! – Emily”

Ali (Bentley), Nugget, Binx – Gina Visits her Miracle Babies

1/25/19 – An update on Gina’s miracle babies – Ali (aka Bentley), Nugget, and Binx.  Without Gina’s heart and the support of our donors, these beautiful animals would not be here today. – diana

“1/24/19 – Spent the day visiting 3 of my many favorite 4 paws 1 heart MIRACLE babies. Stella (aka Nugget), a newborn puppy I raised from birth. Her mom passed away because a baby from the litter was stuck inside of her and she went septic. Bentley (aka Ali), also raised from birth after suffering a traumatic leg injury that the previous owners claim was a result of getting smashed in a recliner, and Buster (aka Halloween Kitten), found in street on Halloween night with a broken leg, a terrible burn on his chest, hypothermic, and in shock. Nursed him back to life, and all 3 are in the most loving homes I could possibly ask for. It was a nice visit and a great day!!♡♡♡ THANK YOU ~ Gina”ali - 2016ali (aka bentley) 1:24:19Nuggetnugget 1:24:19binx--10:31:18 binx 1:24:19

Katniss Everdeen – Reminder of Man’s Inhumanity to Those Most Vulnerable

1/24/19 – Katniss was a reminder of the inhumanity of mankind. Her rescue and recovery, though, was proof that there are more good people in this world than bad. From the caring woman who stopped in the cold rain to save s scared, broken animal to the great mom Katniss is with today – it took a village. – diana

Courtney – She was Rescued With a Chewed Off Paw

1/23/19 – Update from Courtney’s Mom, our friend, Melanie Wittner.
“Thank you again for giving my son his best friend. Sean lives a lonely life, yes he has me and his brothers but since he only has a 30 word vocabulary at 23 years old he doesn’t get to come home from school and call his friends. Sean doesn’t get to go out like other kids because he gets confused and lost. Courtney has filled a hole that I would’ve never been able to. She understands his words that he doesn’t speak and doesn’t make fun of him when he sings to her. Without 4 paws I don’t know what or who Sean would have had to fill that missing piece.”

Thank YOU, Melanie and Sean, for giving Courtney the love she never had. ~ diana
