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.
7/27/21 – It was a very tough week for many of our rescue friends who reached out to 4p1h for help. These are all very sad stories but I strongly believe that no life should pass without being remembered. – Diana.RIP – Wicket. It was Friday when Jennifer, his foster mom, saw that Wicket was having a difficult time urinating. As a kitty with CH (cerebellar hypoplasia) this can be especially troubling. The first two hospitals could not see him so Jennifer ended up at an emergency hospital which is not a partner with us but we all know that sometimes you have to do what you have to do. The vet there quoted two options for surgery and one was chosen. By the next day, Wicket still had not urinated and was being syringe fed. The hospital was contacted and they recommended Wicket be brought back in . When Wicket got there, it was determined that Wicket’s bladder had burst. Sadly, it was decided to let Wicket cross the Rainbow Bridge. Here is Jennifer’s memorial: “My heart is broken…. We had to say goodbye to our sweet, quirky, wobbly, cuddle bug. I was by his side as he crossed the rainbow bridge and is no longer in pain. We will miss his crazy antics, 4am calls, thumping on my bedroom door, running/thumping his way to the door to greet me, and the occasional crash. But most of all, I will miss him pressing his head to my shoulder when I held him and his long tail that was wagging all the way to his last breath. In his 4 short years, he taught us about Cerebellar Hypoplasia and about accommodating needs for a special kitty. Goodbye sweet boy, until we meet again. Run free and jump high as a whole kitty without any restraints. A special thanks to 4 Paws 1 Heart for helping with his medical treatment and surgery. Unfortunately the process was just too much for his tired body. – Jennifer”
