9/21/22 – One of the many TNR projects we have been assisting produced this very sweet girl, Patty. Yvonne contacted us about many cats living on a golf course in Oakland County, MI and asked if we could help. We said ‘yes’ and most of the cats are being spayed/neutered/vaccinated and returned to the course (with the course’s approval). But, Patty was different. Here’s what her rescuer had posted on our Petfinder site:
“Hello, my name is Patty. I’m a sweet, adorable, 6 month old kitten. I’ve had a tough life trying to survive without humans until these nice people took me in to get fixed and vaccinated. I’m currently learning how to be a house kitty. I’ll be ready for adoption the week of September 12. Could you be my FUR-Ever home? Adoption fee is $45, which will go to 4 Paws 1 Heart.”
Well, Patty has been adopted and we are all thrilled. Unfortunately, though, we have had to stop assisting in any future cases due to a shortage of funds. Money has been going out faster than it’s coming in. It truly breaks my heart to have to say ‘no’ to those needing us but we have taken on some significant cases which include 2 cats getting experimental FIP treatment, heart worm, eye removals, amputations, and large TNR projects. I need to make sure we have enough money to cover those over the next month or so before we can continue. This is the first time in 12 years but as I’ve said, the economy and the pandemic has had a significant impact on all of the animal advocacy groups and we are just one of them. Thank YOU for your continued support. – diana.
