11/6/23 – Peanut. It was August when Zamorea saw a car pull up in a park, let out a dog, and drove off. She took the scraggly dog in and after two weeks, Peanut was not eating and drinking very little. We were contacted for help. Peanut was taken to Orion Animal Hospital where he was tested for parvo, had x rays taken, as well as a comprehensive blood and urine panel done. He was treated for infections and given fluid and thankfully one month later with lots of love, Peanut looks like a totally different dog.

This is a perfect example of the importance of 4 Paws 1 Heart to good Samaritans and the independent rescue community. The typical person who rescues an animal in need rarely can afford to take the animal to a vet for just standard vetting let alone the expenses involved with a dumped animal like Peanut or for so many others who need serious medical attention. We thank our many donors who make this possible and the vets who work with us. We hope that by mid-November we will again be able to assist the many animals who have no one else but our Village of huge-hearted animal advocates. – diana P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080


11/6/23 – Rudy showed up on his finder’s back deck in mid September. Lisa, his savior, fed him for about a month but noticed he had some health issues. She took him to a vet and had him examined, vaccinated for rabies, and dewormed. The vet also found that Rudy’s teeth were in bad shape and needed a dental cleaning and administered antibiotics for an infection. We were asked for help and we authorized Rudy to be seen at Patterson Veterinary Hospital. On November 3 Rudy had his dental cleaning and is now on medication and resting comfortably. He will have a follow-up appointment in two weeks and when fully recovered, Lisa will try to find Rudy his furever, loving home.
