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.
1/11/23 – Join us for the ‘REAL’ Show Me the Money event where you get a chance to win cash. For those of you who joined us at the November 30th “Show Me the Gift Card” event, you will be familiar with this fun and fast moving game which is a little bit of bingo but played with a set consisting of 3 playing cards. $20 Wristbands will be sold at the door which will include food provided by the venue and 2 sets which will be good for the first round only. After the first round, playing sets will cost $1 for each set and will be unlimited. And, the more people in attendance, the more cash there will be in the pots. The pots will be split with 50% going to 4 Paws 1 Heart and 50% going to the winner/s for that round (for multiple winners, the 50% pot will be split accordingly). In November, 92 people attended so brush off those February Blues and get there early. Playing will begin at 7:00 pm. If you have any questions, please email: [email protected]
UPDATE: 1/13/23 – All 4 dogs were located in the early morning of 1/12/23. Members of the rescue were searching through the night and heard the dogs barking in an abandoned apartment building. They are now safe back with the rescue. – diana
1/11/22 – Courtesy Post for our friends at Make A Difference Rescue:
“4 dogs were stolen last night in Detroit from Make a Difference Rescue’s shelter. Willow, Jaxon, Holly, and Titus. Please share and help us get these dogs to safety. Location stolen from was Harper and 94. The surveillance cameras show there were three people and they were on foot – we did not see a vehicle. Food and bins were NOT taken. We need our dogs back. Call 248.703-0670, or the police if you find any of the dogs pictured below.. We are devastated to think of the hands they could end up in. We just walked into all of this early this morning. They broke a window to get in and then came out through the door leaving it wide open.
We are still waiting for the police to arrive, but first and foremost is getting our dogs back to safety. Please be on the lookout and share this post. We are in the process of getting them all posted to the lost and found sites.”
1/10/23 – This is Hans (black and white) and Princess Leia. They were rescued by two people whom we’ve worked with in the past. In the process of doing outreach they discovered these two very wounded dogs in an abandoned house in Detroit. They both had multiple injuries, old and new. The rescuers cleaned their wounds as best as possible. Hans looked like he had bite marks all over his face and legs and his lip was torn. He also had what looked to be burns on his face. Princess Leia had a recent eye injury that appeared to be a bite along with some older bit wounds and her neck was swollen from an imbedded collar. The rescuers found a rescue group to take in both dogs but the group could not afford the potential medical needs and that is when we were contacted.
Hans and Leia were taken to a veterinary clinic by the rescue (Paws, Awes, & Claws) where treatment for the wounds was given. But, Leia was found to be in heat and Hans was found to be positive for heart worm. That is when we stepped in with one of our partner veterinary clinics. Leia has been spayed and vaccinated and Hans has started his pre-treatment for heart worm. When that is completed in 30 days he will be treated with the heart worm injections and when appropriate he will be neutered and vaccinated. The rescue will be seeking a furever loving home for these very abused but very sweet dogs.
And, without the support of so many animal advocates, we could not make a difference in so many lives. So, again, thank you. – diana.
