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.
I went to visit sweet Snow yesterday and he is doing great! A friend and colleague of mine offered to watch him and take care of his daily wound care so that he doesn’t have to be in a cage all day at the hospital. The wound is 2/3 healed and he is in good spirits! If anyone would like to donate supplies for Snow please let me know! I ordered him a scratch pad, two toys, and a new litter box. He’s almost out of Food and litter, or if you want to donate any items, they are always appreciated for a medical foster who helps get them where they need to be. Thank you! Gina
9/12/23 – We’ve talked about the issues of cat overpopulation in mobile home parks over the past 13 years and unfortunately it just seems to be more worse now than ever. I’m sure there are many factors involved but spay/neuter of all pets is the number one answer. But, we also understand that with today’s cost of living and consumer prices, very often pet owners or those helping to rescue a cat cannot afford the pet care. That is why low cost clinics such as All About Animals Rescue, Humane Society of St. Clair, Comfort’s Place, and The Paws Clinic are so very important to our communities.
These little ones were about 4 weeks old when they were rescued from a ‘sweep’ at a mobile home park. We were contacted by one of the home owners who we’ve helped on several occasions with strays in her park and they were all snap tested, vaccinated, spayed/neutered, and treated for fleas and parasites. Let me introduce you to Poosheisty, Ashley, Luna, and MooCow. They were all named by the rescuer’s son and his friends; she said that she is just the ‘belly rubber’. They are so adorable and anyone interested in adopting them should just e mail me at: firstname.lastname@example.org and I will put you in touch with the rescuer. – diana
9/12/23 – And more of the cat families rescued and medically assisted by 4 Paws 1 Heart. A pregnant Molly was rescued and had 3 kittens in the rescuer’s home; the finder found homes for those 3. Then another 3 kittens were dropped off at the finder’s home. Although a little unclear, Molly was tested, vaccinated, and spayed along with the kittens and today two of the kittens, Penelope and Midnight were adopted and also will be spayed/neutered and vaccinated. With so many cats and so many cases, I will be the first to admit that the order of things can be a little crazy but the bottom line is that none of these cats/kittens will ever birth another baby. – diana
9/12/23 – 4 Paws 1 Heart has helped with at least 3 hoarding situations. With the help of our friends at Comfort’s Place, All About Animals, and our individual veterinary partners we have been able to stop the continued overflow of the cat population and in many cases the cats and kittens have been adopted into loving homes. One of such cases was a house in SW Detroit where there were at least 12 cats and 4 kittens. The next few posts will show most of those who were helped. Thank you to Gavin and Brennan for taking this effort on. – diana
