11/11/22 – Dear Friends, Just in case you didn’t know, 4 Paws 1 Heart has been in a “Restricted Mode” for helping the fur orphans that need us to survive. The cost of medical treatment, the continued overtaxing of our veterinary clinics (especially the low-cost clinics) and inflation have had a significant impact on our fundraising as well as the health of the animals who are eventually rescued. So, I, along with our Board and a few great volunteers who are also rescuers, have been pulling out all stops to raise funds. This is one of them. I was very honored to have been contacted by the Detroit News with the offer to join in the Holiday Cheer for Charity knowing that it will require a lot of dedication on everyone’s part. But, I thought — What do we have to Lose?? So, please check this out. Voting starts today at noon and requires a vote everyday. Please put us on your calendar and once you have the link, it shouldn’t take more than a minute to vote for 4 Paws 1 Heart. Thank you in advance. It means so much to us as well as the thousands of animals we have been able to help over the past 12 years. Over $1.7 million dollars has been paid to date in medical treatment for animals rescued by good Samaritans, animal control officers, rescue organizations and first responders. Thank YOU so very much. – diana.

11/10/22 – I hope everyone has noticed the change in our banner on our facebook page Our Board member, Kim Fuhrman, is working on creating an active banner that will focus on some of more severe current cases. As most of you know, one of those cases is our little Muffins. And, many generous friends have gotten Muffins to where she is thus far but as Gina reported, more will be needed. And that’s where another great friend of 4 paws 1 heart has come through.

So, I’m announcing another MATCH!! This is a $5,000 Match which will begin tomorrow and end on Thanksgiving Eve, November 23, 2022. So thank you in advance. This donation and yours will not only help Muffins but will help us get back to normal for the rest of the orphans we try to help like Peanut, Ozzie, Callie, and BooBoo. – Diana. P.O.

11/10/22 – Although, we are very thankful that we can still afford to assist with the basics (vaccines, testing, and neuter/spay), we also want to help get the orphans off of the streets, especially with winter closing in. Here is the message I received from a caring woman who contacted us for help. We took care of the medical needs but we are not a rescue and couldn’t take the cat in.

If you are interested in adopting her, please contact: [email protected] – diana.

“I’m sure you are getting a lot of emails & calls for help with animals but our neighborhood has a roughly 6 month old, homeless, female kitten that is very friendly & sweet. She is a medium hair black & white kitten. We posted her on our city’s FB page to see if she was someone’s pet but people stated that they thought she was born to a feral mom behind one of the factories in our area. We also checked “For The Love of Louie” website but didn’t find any posts reporting a kitten missing.

We are giving her food and water every day and we can pet her. Today, I purchased a heated pad – cat house off of Amazon because we don’t want her to get cold with the weather changing. I’m not sure where she goes at night but she meets us every evening and every morning at our front door so we can feed her. She runs between our legs and rolls around on the ground.

We just can’t take her in because of the crew we already have. We also don’t want anything to happen to her or for her to get pregnant and for there to be even more homeless kitties so we are reaching out for help. We are really hoping you can help by taking her into your rescue.- Erica” P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080
