“Welcome Reese to our crazy Hyde/Sterner foster family. This little girl was found in a ditch by Sonya Allen and her wonderful family. In an effort to find her family, it soon became apparent that she was dumped and we agreed to foster her and#4Paws1Heart Diana Rascano agreed to cover her medical expenses. Thankfully this sweetie is PENDING! 😻😻 *Side note in all the years we’ve been fostering, we’ve never fostered a female ginger….super pumped!
6/18/19 – The sweetest dog I’ve ever met. Rosie, you will always be in our hearts. ~ diana
“CHANCE: Goood morning Team Chance, as promised we’re going to share with you pics & stories of our beloved Roo. The top left pic is the one mom saw on Facebookunder For the Love of Louie *Michigan Lost Pet Lookers* that her finder posted that she found this lost dog. That was on Oct 5th, 2016. The look on that poor babys face haunted mom all night, she kept going back to that post and looking at that little face. Mom saw later that night that animal control had picked her up. Mom started messaging animal Control about her status, and at the same time she sent the pic to Auntie Di at 4 Paws 1 Heart with a simple message “Please call me re: this dog”. Of course Auntie Di called mom 1st thing in the morning. AUNTIE DI: “What would you like to do?”
MOM: “Go get her & foster her”.
Auntie Di without hesitation said “if they will give her to you, get her.” And with that, arrangements were made with the wonderful Animal Control Officer Lisa Taylor, and Auntie Debra & Mom brought Roo home. That 1st night she slept on the floor next to moms bed..Her nails were so long and spiraled she could barely walk, her fur was sooo matted. Pew!!! Did she ever stink!!! It was terrible!!! And that was how she got her name…Rosie⚘, Mom wanted to name her as far opposite of what she smelled like then..what she would be not what she smelled like then. The next morning when mom took her to the groomers…a very sneaky & sweet Auntie Anne Sadowski had already been to the groomer & paid for Rosie Roos grooming ❤. The bottom pic is after Roo came home smelling sweet, all soft, clean & comfy sleeping that 1st sleep of knowing life was about to change for her!!! – Mom”
6/18/19 – Daegan showed up in Nicole’s backyard and she actually found his owner. When she brought Daegan ‘home’, the owner threw him out of the house and said he didn’t want him. Daegan is only 6 months old and is very sweet. I received a call from one of our veterinary partners asking if we could cover his vaccines and health check, which, of course we did. Because Nicole already has dogs who are not thrilled with an ‘interloper’, she is in desperate need of finding a rescue or adopter for Daegan. He is scheduled for neutering, complements of 4p1h, next week. Anyone interested in this handsome boy, should contact Nicole at: [email protected]
Without you, we couldn’t do what we do. ~ diana

6/14/19 – A good friend of 4p1h, who is always there to help an animal in need, came across a man trying sell a 4-week old puppy. He kept yelling at the puppy to “shut up” while the puppy laid on the early April, cold cement. Shelley could think of nothing other than to buy the puppy to save him from an unknown, potentially dangerous fate. Before she did that, though, she contacted us to see if we would cover the medical and of course we said yes. Samson was taken to the vet and he was given a wellness exam and dewormed; he was too young for any vaccines. After contacting some animal rescues, Rebel Dogs Detroit agreed to take in Samson where he will be well taken care of. It truly takes a village. – diana

6/13/19 – Rosey was found on the streets and found to be heart worm positive. Her initial treatment while being fostered was not successful and she had to begin the more aggressive heart worm treatment. Our friends at Streethearts Animal Rescue asked for help and we were happy to be there for Rosey. Let’s pray that this time treatment is successful. She is a beauty. ~ diana
6/12/19 – Emma had been a member of a cat community cared for by one of our Board members and a 4p1h friend. She was found to have an eye infection and a urinary tract infection. She was seen by one of our vets and was treated for both as well as had her, much needed, nails trimmed. Our latest report is that Emma is doing great. ~ diana
