8/21/19 – During this Anniversary Week, some of our friends have been sharing stories about the abandoned, stray, and abused who we’ve helped in the past. We are thankful for the stories they are sharing because they tell us how we not only changed the animal’s life but how we changed their lives. I remember Fatboi so well it was 2015 when we were called on to help with his many medical issues. I was heartbroken when we had to say goodbye but thankful for the love he gave his rescuer and the love she gave him. Here is what Lauren wrote:
“You guys ROCK! I LOVE 4 Paws 1 Heart. My Fatboi would not be saved without you all. From a “FREE DOG” that was on Craigslist that lived only outside, I went and got him because I was scared for him. We know what happens to “free dogs” especially when they look like this. He was sick and I did not know what to do. Finally, I found 4 Paws 1 Heart and Miss Diana got him right to a vet, even got us a RIDE because I didn’t have a car. He already had arthritis at 3 from being kept outside in a concrete pen, plus double ear infections, a kidney infection, and an unhappy belly. With the help of 4 Paws 1 Heart Fatboi got back to his healthy self and honestly was the best FRIEND I have ever had. A piece of my soul went with him when he crossed the Rainbow Bridge 2018. Thank you to 4 Paws 1 Heart for saving his life, because in turn, he saved mine❤”
Remember that your donation can be doubled this week.
8/20/19 – Petey was found roaming the streets. This very sweet boy has a cherry eye and an eye infection, severe ear infections, and a wound on his hip. The rescuer attempted to find an owner without success. Petey was taken to one of our partner vets last week and he is scheduled to have his cherry eye removed and will also be neutered and vaccinated. He also had his infections and wounds treated. Every individual rescuer and rescue group we’ve helped, has regularly said “We don’t know where we could be without your organization. Thank YOU” – Diana
Please don’t forget about our $1,000 match campaign through 8/25/19.
8/19/19 – 9 years ago Diana Rascano and I began an organization to help stray cats and dog’s by paying for medical care. The idea was we would help that injured or sick stray on the side of the road so that he/she would not suffer. We would help alleviate their pain. Once stabilized that stray animal would be networked for placement if no owner was found.
Our 9th Anniversary was yesterday. Since then we have branched out and we have been able to help thousands of animals.
I have learned so much along the way..
Without the support of our board members, our significant others, the veterinarians, the hospital staff, the individual rescuers, the rescue groups, the shelters, the animal control officers, the law enforcement, and all of the hard work of Diana, we would not be where we are today.
Thank you all from the bottom of my heart.
This organization means so much to me…words can not describe.
I am just going to add a few pictures of the animals that 4 paws 1 heart has given a 2nd chance to. Each one of these animals has a back story.. It could be abuse, starvation, sick, orphaned, dumped, etc.. The important thing is they would not be where they are today without the support of “4 paws 1 heart” and that’s why we need to keep going. They need us.♡ Read the stories of Azela, Vortex, Izzy and Sox, Cannoli, Samantha, Brutus, Skippy, Onyx, Orphan Kittens, Annie, Bubba, Ellie, Hercules, Stray Kitten, Katniss. – Gina
8/18/19 – Dear Friends, Today is our 9th Anniversary. Hard to believe it’s been 9 years of funding medical treatment for abandoned/stray and abused animals. We are blessed to have many supporters which includes individuals, veterinarians, and businesses. We couldn’t have helped over 6,000 animals to the tune of $850,000 in medical bill payments without all of you.
Today, another one of our Board members has generously offered to match up to $1,000 in donations made between today and next Sunday, August 25, 2019. Please help us meet the goal. Your support saves lives. Here are a few of the many animals we’ve helped over the past couple of months. ~ diana
8/16/19 – Waylon’s Story:
7/10/19 – This little guy was found in the middle of a Walmart parking lot. Fortunately, a good Samaritan rescued him and contacted Chance’s mom, Denise. Denise found a foster for Waylon and he was taken to the vet yesterday. Waylon is only 1 lb and is about 5-6 weeks old. We will be covering his medical expenses including neuter when he is big enough. Anyone interested in giving this boy a furever home should contact Denise at: [email protected] – diana
