2/28/23 – These very sweet and bonded seniors needed us and will need you! Cujo and Stella were abandoned when their owner died. Cujo is estimated to be 7-8 years old and Stella is estimated to be 9-11 years old. They were both in very bad shape when they were rescued by Renea. Cujo and Stella have an appointment tomorrow with one of our partner vets to be vaccinated, spayed/neutered (if the vet thinks it’s needed at their age), treated for fleas, worm, and nails that are growing into their paws. The rescuer tried separating the two when she rescued them (one would stay with the rescuer and one would be fostered by Renea’s sister) but both of them stopped eating and cried the entire 3 days they were apart. So now, they are both with Renea’s sister. Stella also has a grape-sized growth on her back that will be examined and treated as needed. So, once again, so, many animals whether thrown outside, born outside, or just abandoned because an owner died and no one wanted them, needed our help and because of our many supporters and great veterinarians and staffs, we were able to say ‘yes’.

If there is anyone who would love to give these two a loving home in their final years, please contact Renea at: [email protected]

Thank you, as always. – diana. P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080


2/27/23 – Warrior was finally trapped by our Board member, Melissa, during the night. She has been a kitty angel for the strays who luckily find their way into her property. Warrior was pretty beat up with several open wounds. He was taken early this morning to All About Animals where he will be neutered and vaccinated but first his wounds were treated and he received an antibiotic injection. Warrior will then spend the next couple of days inside while he recovers and then released. – diana.

If warrior doesn’t show feral attitude I will try my best to find warrior a warm house. Wish I could take everyone of them and I would warrior was caught in Sterling Heights Maple Lane between 14 and 15. – Melissa P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080


CHANCE: Well Team, last update of the day.

Tomorrow, Mom and Aunt Shelly will be traveling with these three to Dr. Zs. Trixie will be getting her level 4 dental. Thankyou to all who donated for Trixie

Oliver is also getting his dental tomorrow, hopefully he won’t lose as many teeth as last time. Schnauzers are prone to bad teeth and he didn’t have the best start in life being used as a breeder dog and they sadly didn’t care about his teeth…but we do!

And Grandma’s forever foster Baby will be going to get bloodwork done to see how her increased thyroid medicine is working.

It’s going to be a long day for them, mom & Aunt Shelly but we will be here holding down the fort till everybody gets home. Thankyou 4 Paws 1 Heart for your help with Trixie & Baby!

Time for all of us to say nitenite Team, its going to be a very early morning around here.

Sweet dreams and we will keep you posted on how everybodys doing tomorrow! P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080

33 weeks later and we still don’t have a solution… I won’t give up until she has had every single option explored and I’ll choose what I feel is best for her.- gina P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080

Please help..

This is a quick glimpse into an 11 week journey with my foster kitten Muffins who was found as a stray. She has an appointment with internal medicine specialist on the 26th because she has not gotten better. Her symptoms have been up and down. 4 paws 1 heart has been covering all of her extensive medical costs. With multiple prescriptions, tests, and supportive care her bills have already exceeded $1,000 and we haven’t even begun basic veterinary care such as vaccines, spay, etc. Please help if you can Thank you

2/24/23 – This is Snickerdoodle.. She started visiting a very kind woman in Southfield who started to feed her. Snickerdoodle would allow the rescuer to pet her. Consequently, Snickerdoodle was trapped, spayed and vaccinated but then the caretaker noticed her limping and contacted a person we’ve assisted in the past for help. The caretaker would now like to bring Snickerdoodle inside her home and thinks the cat is adoptable.

Snickerdoodle will be seeing one of our favorite doctors next week. Paws crossed for this very sweet stray. – diana. P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080

2/16/23 – I got a call from our friends at Streethearts about a female dog found by a former homeless man just a few days prior. The man quickly became attached to Cookie and took her into his new home but she was very ill. He contacted Streethearts Rescue and that’s when we jumped in. Cookie had been obviously used for breeding (unfortunately the area is known for such activity) and, more than likely, when she developed severe mastitis of her teats, they must have dumped her. She was taken to a veterinary where the infection was found to be so advanced that the tissue was already dying (necrotizing). It all required surgical removal. The photos are horrible to look at and to think this poor sweet, abused girl had been walking the streets like this would break anyone’s heart. We authorized the surgery the same day we were contacted. The doctors reported that they were happy with the surgery and Cookie is resting well in her new home where she is very much loved. Your donations and the help of so many local businesses make these success stories possible. Thank YOU! – diana. P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080
