Remember sweet precious Mia who was found frozen 2 weeks ago and full of frostbite? I was just talking with her rescuer and her tail and ear amputation are healing, but her pads on feet are sloughing and damaged from the frostbite. We are having the doctor recheck her tomorrow for possibly another round of antibiotics to prevent secondary infection. This girl still needs to be vaccinated and fixed. If you would like to donate to Mia here is the link and put Mia in the note. We will post after her hospital visit tomorrow. Thank you Gina

Just a quick hello from Muffins’. She is doing amazing since her nasopharyngeal stent placement surgery last May. She is thriving in every way and I’m so happy we went with the surgery. Muffins’ is truly living her best life. If you search for her on our Facebook or our Website you can follow her incredible journey. I am forever grateful for our supporters who helped make this happen. Gina

I remember that night in April of 2011 like it was yesterday when a good samaritan rushed this girl into the emergency hospital because she had been hit by a car. Her body was lying in the street with a traffic cone beside her. Cars just kept going. Detroit and Warren wouldn’t respond because she was on the border. A resident walked up to her and she reacted as if that was her family, but they said “nope not my dog” and then walked away. The good samaritan then decided to wrap her in a blanket and brought her to the emergency where I was working at the time.

I offered to have her surrendered to me and 4 Paws 1 Heart would cover her medical. She was named “Dolly” and although she was in shock, bloody, full of abrasions, and hurting, there was not a mean bone in her body. Dr. Roach and I worked on getting her back to health and it was pretty immediate when Dr. Roach fell in love and offered a forever home to Dolly. She ended up covering all of her medical care and gave Dolly the best life ever. There was nothing and I mean NOTHING that Dolly ever needed or wanted. She went to games, traveled, and lived with lots of fur brothers and sisters.

Dolly may have been injured that day, but that incident was the start of her new journey. A few days ago Dolly was put to rest. Her mommy has a shattered heart and misses her beyond words. Please keep Dr. Roach in your prayers as she faces this unbareable loss. I can not stress the impact on animals and humans because of our supporters. It’s because of animals like Dolly that 4 Paws 1 Heart was born. Rest peacefully sweet girl. You had 13 amazing years of endless love. Never forgotten.. Gina

I so remember this incident, Gina, when you contacted me about the call that night. We had so many successes in the days you were at The Emergency in Harper Woods and so many memories. You and the amazing doctors,like Dr. Roach, made such a difference in the lives of humans and the animals saved as well as all of those good Samaritans and first responders who didn’t turn their backs. Your experience at the hospital was the impetus to us starting 4 paws 1 Heart — an organization that wasn’t a rescue but an organization, like no other, that would fund medical treatment for the many animals who were found sick and injured but had no one to help them medically. Thank you for reminding us of sweet Dolly. God bless Dr. Roach for stepping in when she did and then giving Dolly so many years of love and fun. RIH sweet Dolly; furever in our hearts and history. – Diana
