She has been seen wandering around a trailer park in Warren. Residents feed her and she greets them for loving often. A kind family could not stand the thought of Cali freezing during the brutal cold, so they brought her in. They reported her to animal control as found, but no one has shown ownership. Sweet little Cali has a couple broken teeth but she checked out well. 4 paws 1 heart helped get her off to a good start making sure she is healthy, and if no owner comes forward she has a forever home.

She’s a wonderful addition to our family!!! She will never go hungry, be cold or go without love ever again!! Thank you for all your love and care. – Nancy


This guy was living outside as a stray for about 10 years. Last week he showed up lethargic and weak. The rescuer contacted us for fear he was suffering. We authorized an exam at Groesbeck Animal Hospital where the staff quickly got him in for tests and an exam. Tippy was critical and very sick. It was decided that humane euthanasia was the kindest decision to end his suffering. Thank you to those who don’t turn their back on a stray in need. Although they are homeless they deserve love and respect. Gina P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080


2/15/24 – Although 4 Paws 1 Heart is not a rescue and doesn’t have possession of the animals, we assist many independent rescuers who do not have the resources to promote a rescued animal after we’ve assisted with medical treatment. We host a page on Petfinder which is not available to individuals/non-501c3’s, a facebook page called Friends of 4 Paws 1 Heart where animals we’ve helped can be posted and promoted by their rescuer and lastly, the 4P1H Village Kittyroom at the Pet Supplies Plus store on 13 Mile and Harper in St. Clair Shores.

Our Board member, Dee Gudenau, who is very much involved in TNR, caring for cat colonies, and rescue when asked, saw the vacant room at the store, met with the manager, and magically she put together a Kitty Room with the help of those rescuers we’ve assisted in the past. There is also a donation bin at the front of the store for pet supply donations which are then distributed to cat communities and foster animals.

That is why it is named the 4P1H Village Kittyroom — the operative word being ‘VILLAGE’. It’s the product of 4p1h Board members, rescuers who want to promote their rescues, volunteers, and the store staff. All for the sake of God’s creatures who must rely on humans far too often for their survival. – diana P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080

I can now post a huge thank you now that I stopped crying…. So very well put Diana it does take a village and we have one awesome village thank you to all. – DEE


2/15/24 – Zuma was rescued this past Sunday at around 3pm by a rescuer, Emma, whom we’ve helped in the past. Between 3pm and 8am the following morning, Zuma threw up garbage six separate times — pennies, plastic, bags, and popcorn kernels. But as of now that has stopped. Emma reported that it appears that Zuma is not spayed and may have had a recent litter although there were no puppies to be found. Zuma’s female organs are very swollen and her underside is very raw, rough feeling, and has red spots. Her tail and ears appear to have been frostbitten as they sometimes bleed and are scabbing over. Her tail and ankle areas are also very raw and have signs of wounds.

Emma advised that Zuma’s a wonderful dog; very gentle and mellow. She will be fostering Zuma with the help of Make a Difference Rescue and 4 Paws 1 Heart. Zuma will be seen at Five Mile Animal Hospital.

Your donations make a difference in the lives of so many. – diana P.O. Box 84, St. Clair Shores, MI. 48080
