On Friday night I saw that 4 Paws 1 Heart was tagged many times on an emergency post. I was afraid to wait until Monday, so yesterday morning I met the rescuer of this baby at the vet. They are calling her “Mia”. She was found about 1 week ago emaciated with ice caked over her ears and tail. She is all bones. Even her nose is raw.

Her flesh is rotting on the tips of her ears and tail. A full tail amputation is needed and the tips of her ears need to be cut off where the tissue is dead. Her paw pads all have frostbite, but we are not anticipating they will require surgery.

We are still on a hold for big cases but we cannot let her suffer. The doctor at Moore Vet, Dr. Henry, started her on antibiotics and pain meds and she was kind enough to squeeze her in for surgery on Tuesday.

The estimated cost for surgery is $500-$600 and then she will need vaccines, combo test, worming, and spay surgery. About $900 when all is done. We cannot do this without the help of others. Please consider donating today. Gina

Below is the post & pics from Warren Animal Control 5yrs ago! Dr. Z estimates Trixie to be about 16-17yrs old now and she’s doing amazing!!! Happy Gothcha Day Trixie, We love you!!!!!


A huge THANK YOU to Denise Najera & Michelle Van Daele for stepping up to foster this girl and 4 Paws 1 Heart for covering her medical care and taking her in!!!

Also, we finally received a photo from the vet. Here is the very lucky girl! Denise is naming her Trixie, and I’ve added a donation option to this post for anyone who can contribute to her care once she leave the ER and goes to 4P1H!


Very late Thursday night a citizen dropped off a cat at City of Warren Animal Control. Friday morning when our ACOs came into work they quickly realized something was wrong. She was laying in her blanket, crying loudly and unable to stand. She was immediately rushed to an ER vet for care.

Initially her body temperature was incredibly low, and she appeared to be blind. Today after finally having her temperature come back to normal, some of her vision has returned and she is responding to visual stimuli. However, it was also discovered that she has a fractured pelvis.

We suspect she was hit by a car and then dragged herself to the citizen’s yard, before almost freezing to death in this awful cold we’ve had all week. Thankfully she was found and brought to our police station.

As for her injuries; while the vet believes two of the fractures will heal on their own, the third they feel will require surgery and pins.

Currently she is on a strong dose of pain meds, she is getting round the clock care, and for the most part now seems stable. Though at this time requires some help expressing her bladder. However, the level of care she will need is something that will likely require an orthopedic surgeon.

If your rescue has the ability to take this girl in, please let us know ASAP. Warren Animal Control has gone above and beyond to make sure she received care and was stabilized, but now we really need help from our rescue partners to save this girl.

*We did not have an opportunity to get a photo of her, so in place of a photo, these are her x-rays.*”
