Our mission is to reduce the number of homeless cats & dogs by paying for needed medical treatment and assisting with the permanent placement of these animals through our partnerships with local rescue groups.
11/821 – In this season of ‘thanks’ we are so very thankful for the many supporters who donate money to help us fund medical treatment for the many stray, abandoned, and abused animals living on the streets. And, although our mission is to fund medical treatment for stray, abandoned, and abused animals living on the streets, we also welcome donations of food and supplies which we distribute to our rescue friends. Tinkerbell is one of the many recipients of such donations and we want to thank Pet Supplies Plus on Harper in St. Clair Shores for providing a drop box for donated goods. A very frightened Tinkerbell was rescued from the streets this past July. The rescuer found what she thought was a great adopter but later found out that poor Tinkerbell had been kept on a chain 24/7 and appeared to be pregnant; she also had a horrendous skin issue. Tinkerbell went back to her rescuer and we were again contacted to assist with her medical needs which now included an ultra sound to determine her pregnancy status. Tinkerbell had 9 babies; two died but the 7 have been flourishing and Tinkerbell has been a good mama. Unfortunately, she couldn’t be treated for her skin issue until recently. The bottom line to all of this is that like so many other orphan and abused animals on the streets, love, protection, and goodies are not something they know. But with the help of the 4 Paws 1 Heart Community these babies get a second chance at life and get to know love. The first 4 photos are of Tinkerbell enjoying her ‘sausage’ treat donated by one of the PSP customers. Tinkerbell also loves to be wrapped in a blanket and feels very secure sleeping in small container. The last three photos are of Tinkerbell when she was first rescued, after she was returned, and one of her babies.
