9/19/22 – Yesterday, I was contacted by the owner of Comfort’s Place, Deb Friendman, (an animal ‘angel’ in her own right) about Shelly. Shelly also has a tumor which the doctor was removing as Deb and I talked. “This little girl was found in an abandoned house in Inkster, surrounded by used needles and decaying floors. We posted and reported finding her and no one stepped up. When we scanned her, much to our shock, she was chipped!!! After contacting the person on the chip registry, we found out the owner passed away last year and the dog has been surviving on whatever she could–alone! With an amazing personality and love for other dogs, cats, and humans, we found temporary placement that we hope turns into permanent placement. I’ll keep you posted on her living situation. (and on the tumor too). Thanks for the help!! – Deb”

Dear 4paws1heart Friends, If you’ve been following us, especially over the last 12 years, you will know that we’ve taken on several serious cases over the year, most of which have turned into happy beginnings. And besides the serious cases we have paid for thousands of cats and dogs to be spayed/neutered and vaccinate. But, unfortunately, the economy is hitting us from both ends. The cost of medical is increasing while the donations coming in our decreasing. And we can truly understand on both counts. The cost of doing business is getting out of reach for most small businesses and people are struggling to feed their families. But, anything you can do to keep us going will be very much appreciated. For the first time in 3 years we are finding ourselves in the position of turning away serious cases until we are on firmer financial grounds. We are looking for opportunities for fundraisers and hope to have something in November so stay tuned. Thank YOU! . – diana P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080
